My mom still has my baby crib that was purchased circa 1983. She would love to give it to me to use for our first child, due in August. I am planning to co-sleep, so having a crib is more of just an item to take up space in the baby's room. However, its impossible to say whether or not it might ever actually get used for a sleeping baby.
It is a Jenny Lind crib. I seem to remember that the sides went up and down, but my mom doesn't remember that and thinks it is a fixed side crib. It is not currently assembled, and we haven't yet investigated to see (we don't live near my parents).
Mom did scan a photo and e-mail it to me. Can anyone tell from this photo-- or do you know based on experience-- if a 1983 Jenny Lind crib would have been a drop side crib? Also, does anyone know of other safety issues with this crib (other than the fact it was made in 1983) that should prevent me from even thinking about having it in our home? I've Googled this multiple times and I can't find any good information. Thanks!
