New drop-side crib requirements passed by the CPSC
The safest place for your baby to sleep is in a crib or bassinet depending on their age. If your crib has been recalled or it has missing, broken or loose parts, find an alternate safe sleep environment intended for a baby. If your baby is less than six months old and is not yet able to push up to his/her hands and knees, you can put your baby to sleep in a bassinet.
New crib requirements passed by CPSC will stop traditional drop-side cribs from being made and sold within the next six months. The new crib requirements are among the most stringent in the world.
First, it’s important to remember that a non-recalled, sturdy crib is the SAFEST place for your baby to sleep. Second, if you own a drop-side crib regularly check your crib for safety.
Some drop-side crib manufacturers have immobilizers that fit their cribs used to secure drop sides to prevent dangerous situations in which the drop side either partially or fully detaches from the crib. Here’s a list of companies that have recalled their cribs and are providing immobilizers to secure the drop side on the cribs. These immobilizers were evaluated and approved by CPSC staff for use with these particular drop-side cribs. If your drop-side crib manufacturer is not on this list, call the manufacturer and ask if they are making an immobilizer for your crib. The recalling firms are providing consumers with free repair kits to immobilize the drop sides or other remedies. Do not attempt to fix these cribs with homemade remedies.

Alexander Designs” Brand Drop-Side Cribs Sold Exclusively at JCPenny Recalled for Repair Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards
The drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, a hazardous gap is created between the drop-side rail and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing risks of suffocation and strangulation. In addition, children can fall out of the crib when the drop-side rail falls unexpectedly or detaches from the crib. Drop-side rail failures also can occur due to incorrect assembly or with age-related wear and tear.
This recall involves full-size cribs sold under the Alexander Designs brand name. The following models are included:
