We use this crib at our cabin and it does the job just fine. We did buy a different mattress as the one that it came with is ROCK HARD. But after that our 7 month old seems to sleep just fine. I read others say that the bottom collapsed. That must have been terrifying. But I'm surprised that could happen. Perhaps they changed the design but ours has enough overlap on the frame to hold the mattress firmly. Plus it has velcro rings to hold it in place. It was a little difficult to put together - some of the screws just don't seem quite long enough to catch the threads. But when I took out the washer it worked fine. It folds down easily. It works for us. Nothing fancy but does the job.
Recently received these cribs so can't make statement as to the durability of them, but staff are very pleased with them and they appear to be of good quality.
Being a Director of a childcare center, I am concerned for the safety of the children as well as the cost to the center for new cribs as per government new requirements. These cribs are exactly what we needed! Since we have had Foundation cribs before these are the same as the old cribs but with the added security of the new requirements.
I am Nursery Coordinator at our church and needed to replace older drop-side cribs. I ordered one Evacuation Crib and 2 Compact cribs. All 3 products were as described. They were easy to assemble. I did it myself in about 2 hours with the "help" of a 7-year old and a 2-year old.
