Hi, I hope someone can help although this is weird. I think there is a strange odor coming from our Jenny lind crib, dark wood, 5 yrs. old, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:<br>
i think it's the wood and have scrubbed it with tea-tree soap and wood soap and it still is there!!!<br>
I'm close to tossing the thing but then where would dd sleep???<br>

yes, she already does sleep in my bed but when i need my space, which is everynight, she gets moved over--- and we cant afford a new bed right now. guess if i cant get to the bottom of this odor problem dh will have to get moving-fast on the new bed for big brother so HIS bed can go to her.<br>

I'm sorry, Laura. I was being a smartass!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br><br>
About the odor, have you just noticed it recently or has it been there all along? If it was expensive, maybe it would be more economical for you to have the wood stripped and repainted (mind you, I have no idea what that would cost). I can't think of anything that would cause wood to suddenly smell, though if it has always been like that, I'd suspect the stain used to paint and treat the wood.<br><br>
Sorry I couldn't be more help! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
