Secure Old Baby Crib Sides

Some of the older baby cribs have been outlawed or recalled. The sides go down and baby can fall or climb out. Us grandparents in their 60's have our children's old cribs. They are not usable like they were 35 years ago. I wanted to still be able to use the crib for our 2 year old grandson.

We cut a plastic shower curtain rod up and put the rod from the bed through what held the sides of the crib to the head and foot board. My son also had some small hard plastic pipe he used, too. They both held the sides up as far as they would go. We lowered the mattress as far down as we could too so he could not climb out. The bars were already close enough so this bed was safe.

Now Grandma can use it for the few times he comes over to take a nap or stay the night.

Editor's Note: Be sure that your retrofitted crib meets all guidelines for your baby's safety. Here is a link to those safety guidelines.

Anything that saves a large piece of furniture from the landfill while keeping the baby safe gets my vote!
