Question about 2nd hand cribs??


Recommended Posts

My sister talked about this when she had a used cot given to her. Its the mattress thats the problem from what i gather. It has been said that using the same mattress could increase the chances of sudden infant death syndrome.

Anyway to be on the safe side my sister replaced the mattress..

How old is the crib?


As long as the mattress fits snugly into the crib, the rails are on it is no more then 2 inches apart also make sure the paint isnt chipping or it doesn't have any spliters and make sure all the parts fit together and everything is "secure". If all of that is ok it should be fine.


I would also suggest buying a new mattress atleast ( they are fairly cheap).
