Hi,<br><br>
We have this Madison lifetime crib, in white color. Since my daughter started teething, i noticed that she literally chewed the white paint off some part of the crib. I did some research and of course....this made in China too - like almost everything here.... - and wanted to contact the company about possible lead content....couldn't find their address, or contact info.<br><br>
Did anyone have similar experience with this crib.....?<br><br>
Thank you for any response.

We don't have this crib, but here are a couple of things that might help:<br><br>
Is this the crib you have? <a href="http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2401710&cp=2255957.2273443.2255986.2256245.2256274&fbn=Brand+Name+Secondary%7CJardine+Enterprises&f=PAD%2FBrand+Name+Secondary%2FJardine+Enterprises&fbc=1&categoryId=2256274&parentPage=search" target="_blank">Click for link.</a><br><br>
If so, it's made by Jardine Enterprises. I looked all over the web for a site, phone number, and physical address for the company but had zero luck. But I know Babies-R-Us sells their furniture, so my first step would be to call my local BRU and ask them for contact information. Explain you're concerned about the lead hazard because it was made in China.<br><br>
Here's the info I found on the BRU site for this crib:<br><br>
Item #: 138034<br><br>
SKU: 6A34E33B<br><br>
UPC/EAN/ISBN: 065857124583<br><br>
Manufacturer #: DA822BCJW<br><br>
Here's the link to the store locator page for BRU: <a href="http://www9.toysrus.com/store/index.cfm?bru=1&sa_referral=http://www.toysrusinc.com/bstorelocator" target="_blank">Click.</a><br><br>
Also, if it's the side with the slats that she's chewing on (the "footboard"), maybe you could get some cloth teething covers for that railing? We have some on ours that we got at BRU and they work great -- I rolled up a long receiving blanket and put it under the fabric as extra padding.<br><br>
If it's the "headboard" side she's chewing I would literally tie fabric (like an old sheet, with the ends cut so you can tie them outside the crib) over it if you can. It sounds awkward, but I think it's doable so that there wouldn't be any loose fabric anywhere to worry over tangling, etc. You'd just have to make sure it was tied really tightly and the knots were outside the crib where she couldn't reach them.<br><br>
And if that's not possible, then I'd see about returning the crib for an exchange. Given the recent incidents with recalls, I would bet you could exchange it for a different brand that wasn't made in China, if you explain about the potential safety concerns -- I know most stores are being VERY cautious about their made in China products, and the mere mention of lawsuit can work wonders for them allowing you to exchange something, even if it's been used.<br><br>
Anyway. I hope you find the info you need and that it all works out okay.<br><br>
GL, Mama!

Wow!! You did lots of research, thank you indeed!<br>
Btw, this the crib you attached the link to.....Someone suggested to get a lead test kit, so I am gonna test it first, then take legal steps if needed....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
