New Rules on Crib Safety
Have you heard the new rules on crib safety? I came across this article in the L.A. Times that gives a good description about what is expected.
What I found to be most important to take from this is "that families that can afford to do so buy new cribs and destroy their old ones." So this means, if you have enough money to buy a new one, don't re-sell your old crib to a family that can't afford one or doesn't know about the safety regulations. That would be very, very wrong.
If you don't feel comfortable just trashing it, you can make it into a dog house like my neighbor did with ours. I'm sure animal shelters could find a use for them.
Also, if you have a crib that you're wanting to get rid of that meets the safety regulations, you can donate it to Family & Children Services of Oklahoma right here in Tulsa. I just spoke with one of their representatives and they'll even come pick it up. Just call their pick-up service at (918) 832-9134.
So feel free to have that feng shui attack and get rid of all the clutter you no longer need, while helping out a baby who needs a safe place to sleep.
