<p>I don't know why I didn't look at all or do a search. But I just found out today that the Amby bed that I bought used for $150 was recalled in December of 2009!</p>
<p><a href="http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10056.html" target="_blank">http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10056.html</a></p>
<p>I had borrowed one from a friend for the first three months of ds #2's life back in 2008 and it was seemed fine.</p>
<p>So when a different friend posted hers for sale because she was moving I jumped at the chance.</p>
<p>I had coffee today with other friend, who asked me if the recall fix kit had been included, becuase she had never received hers.</p>
<p>Of course it isn't there. I didn't know it should be.</p>
<p>So now I have to figure out what to do.</p>
<p>I am probably not going to use it now even though I do so without issue before.</p>
<p>I have an old pack and play from 7 yr old ds and I "think" it has a bassinnette attachment, so as long as I can figure out how it fits together that should work for when the baby is not in bed with us.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I emailed the person I bought it from and asked her if she knew about the recall, of course she has denied that....but I don't know what to do now. Part of me thinks I should get my money back, but I am sooo non confrontational and feel bad asking her for $150 right before christmas. I would feel ok asking her for half...if I could get up enough guts to do it.</p>
<p>Also it really is <strong>my</strong> responsibility to ensure that the things I buy for my baby are safe.</p>
<p>But I can't really eat the $150 for something I can't use. And it is possible I might need to purchase something else for her to sleep in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And baby is coming Thursday!!! SO, YAY! for one more thing to freak out about.</p>
<p>grrrrrrrrrrrrrr</p>

If there is in fact a <span style="color:rgb(255,0,0);"><strong>recall fix kit</strong></span> to be had, I think it's reasonable (and perhaps a more comfortable subject to broach) that the seller help you track down and pay for the kit.  Seems like a good compromise that would solve the safety and usability problem.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck.</p>
