    The CPSC also issued a warning about using drop-side cribs, noting that there have been 32 fatalities in drop-side cribs in the last 9 years. The CPSC says that it “cannot say that every drop-side crib is hazardous,” but the “between the lines” recommendation is that parents and caregivers should stop using drop-side cribs just to be safe. (And boy, does that make me happy we don’t have a crib anymore, because I loved our first drop-side crib. Of course I did. I’m short.)
