There are far too many baby beds that have been thrown in the landfill because of a missing spring, screw or plastic teething rail. BUT there are also too many cribs that have been recalled still in use that are dangerous for babies.

Repairing and Recycling Baby Cribs
We have learned that the practice of buying cheap baby furniture only to toss it in the trash after a few years will return to haunt us in a big way. Not only are the garbage dumps overflowing, but we have lost the benefits of the virgin forests that we so carelessly eliminated to make the wooden furnishings. Not to mention that chemicals used to paint, process and make the finished products pretty have done more than their share to pollute the environment and leave us to clean up the toxic waste.
As we know there is no easy answer and we are not going to get a "do over" from what was done in the past. I only hope that parents will consider buying a few inexpensive crib replacement parts to repair or recycle an otherwise safe and useful crib before throwing it in the garbage.
WHERE TO BUY CRIB REPLACEMENT PARTS
Standard size screws, nuts and bolts are as easy as a trip to your local discount store. It’s rare that only one of the needed items is necessary to hold the bed together so dig around until you find an identical piece to the one you are missing and take it with you to the store.
GETTING IN TOUCH WITH THE MANUFACTURER
If your crib was made in the last ten years or so, you should have no problem contacting the company who made it. Take care that all used cribs fall within the guidelines of modern safety standards.
INDENTIFYING YOUR MISSING BABY CRIB PARTS
- Look on the frame of the baby bed to see if you can find the contact number or address of the company that made the bed
- If the tags have been removed, refer to the owner’s manual if you have it.
- Do a search on the internet to see if you can email them to see if they can supply the baby crib parts that you need.
To find baby crib parts for a specific brand you may need to order your part from the manufacturer. Before you get in touch with them, you will need to have:
- The number or name of the piece that you need
- The model number and possibly the date of manufacture so that they can help you
This may sound like a lot to go through to recycle a used baby crib. We should think of it as an investment in our baby’s future. It is all worthwhile to leave our kids a clean and uncluttered world.
