What’s the problem?

The CPSC received reports that the bolts connecting the top corners of the Wendy Bellissimo Collection Convertible Cribs can come loose, creating a gap and posing a serious entrapment and strangulation hazard.

Thus far, Bassettbaby is reporting 85 reports of bolts loosening, including one report of a 13-month-old child’s hand becoming entrapped between the railings.

Baby Crib Safety Tips

The CPSC recommends following these tips to reduce the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) and prevent suffocation in infants under 12 months of age:

  • Drawing of a Crib – Place baby on his/her back in a crib with a firm, tight-fitting mattress.
  • Do not put pillows, quilts, comforters, sheepskins, pillow-like bumper pads or pillow-like stuffed toys in the crib.
  • Consider using a sleeper instead of a blanket.
  • If you do use a blanket, place the baby with feet on foot of the crib. Tuck a thin blanket around the crib mattress, covering the baby only as high as his/her chest.
  • Use only a fitted bottom sheet specifically made for crib use.
  • Check Your Crib for Safety – There should be a firm, tight-fitting mattress so a baby cannot get trapped between the mattress and the crib. No missing, loose, broken or improperly installed screws, brackets or other hardware on the crib or mattress support. No more than 2 3/8 inches (about the width of a soda can) between crib slats so a baby’s body cannot fit through the slats; no missing or cracked slats. No corner posts over 1/16th inch high so a baby’s clothing cannot catch.
  • Cribs that are incorrectly assembled, have missing, loose or broken hardware or broken slats can result in entrapment or suffocation deaths. Infants can become strangled when their head and neck become entrapped in gaps created by missing, loose or broken hardware or broken slats.
