Quoting T + H = My World:" if its still under guarantee take it back and exchange it hun x"
Quoting ShannonLovesJasper+1:" They are not banned in australia. And that was a freak accident, really if her head was stuck between bars that could happen in ANY cot."
Quoting T + H = My World:" they should be, not the bars hun, the side dropped down trapping her head between the side bit, mattress ... [snip!] ... the side bit, mattress and bedding the poor child suffocated, and its happened to too many others to just be a freak accident "
Quoting ShannonLovesJasper+1:" :/ ive never heard of the side dropping down by itself. we usually left the side of ours down anyway, ... [snip!] ... up so we never saw the point in having it up. We have a drop down side for bubs number 2 but ill probably do the same thing."
