Where can you find a conversion kit to a Ragazzi crib now that they've gone out of business Anyone done DIY conversion successfully on their own?

Answer

We are in the same situation. There is an aftermarket manufacturer of rails, you can find more information about them here:

http://www.babyfurniturewarehouse.com/ecommerce/ragazziadultrail.html

I'm going to order them this week, I've not tried them yet myself.

Hi, Ragazzi is back in business and you can purchase their products (including the conversion kits) at Buy Buy Baby there are stores in Paramus and Totowa NJ. They do not however list Ragazzi on their website-Buybuybaby.com. You can also purchase from Bambi baby store-Tel.#is 201-867-7634. They also have a website but again the Ragazzi products are not listed.www.bambibaby.com

9/14/09 - The aftermarket site mentioned does not have any in stock now or in the near future. Ragazzi is not back in business, the name was bought by another company and the furniture is now made in China. The dimensions are different so the conversion kits now readily available for the new Ragazzi line will not fit the old Canadian made furniture.

Where can you find crib conversion kits to the Jardine lifetime crib model?

I just finally got my full bed put together and it was really easy and looks great! Ok so I called Jardine enterprises and they told me to call Sleepy's and ask for a Universal hook-on metal rails for a crib. So I did that and the Sleepy's I called said they were discontinued. I continued to call several more Sleepys till I got someone who told me that they were indeed available and he knew exactly what I needed...he just converted his 3 year old's bed. He was right and everything worked out perfectly. The gentleman I spoke with at Sleepy's is Damien (201) 487-4242. Your best bet is to call him no matter where you are located and he will order you exactly what you need or tell you which location to pick them up from. They can deliver it to you and I think the charge is $90...well that's atleast what mine was but they also delivered a full box which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND because the bedrails make the bed really low to the ground and it does not look good that way. I have the manual for converting the kit if you decide to do it on your own. If you need it just respond to this answer. One more thing that I did not realize when the bed rails came and I thought they were not what we needed. You need to follow the instruction manual because it is very important that you take your crib apart completely to get both headboard & end board into the rails. If you don't take the other end of the bed apart (end board) you will not see the place to hook the rails into and the delivery people at Sleepy's will tell you that you order the wrong part and they do not carry parts for this type of bed...BUT THATS NOT TRUE BECAUSE THEY DO AND DAMIEN WILL TELL YOU THAT. Meaning...if you decide to do your bed without an end board they do have rails specifically for them but you need to call Damien because he will know which other rails to order you. But luckily the Jardine Madison Crib can have both a headboard and endboard for a full bed or it can go the other route which I did not want. Very important you just need to make sure your crib is taken apart fully and the end board is put together correctly so that you will see the section to hook the rails into. Actually the instruction manual will show you clearly what I mean...page 6 has a picture of what it is supposed to look like all set up. So ask me for the instruction manual if you do not have it already! Oh also you need to go to a hardware store and pick up the longest furniture screws you can get because you will need those when putting the end board together correctly. I got mine from homedepot. I don't think they came with the crib originally so you definitely have to pick them up. So make sure your end board is put together correctly before ordering the rails.

Can't find full size conversion rails for a jardine crib model da715bc-n?

Hi,

I am so glad someone has ask this same question? I have a Jardine Crib model DA715BC I purchased 23 months ago and now that my son is turning 2 he tries to crawl over the rail and get out of his crib. Until now I had been pleased with the crib until I started looking for the crib conversion rails. In my research I discovered that it is almost impossible to find them, so I ask my self why is that. Most companies want to make money so whats going on. I have discovered through www.newsinferno.com/legal-news that this crib along with several others have been recalled. Please read the article for yourself and evaluate the information for yourself. I'm going to call the company and see if we can get some kind of trade-in or swap out deal. You never know the dangers your kids are facing these days, it seems that this should be the kind of thing that should make the news or newspaper instead of the celebrity gossip and other garbage.

Could a Jenny Lind crib be made into a kids single bed somehow?

Maybe use one of the dropdown sides as a headboard? Then, buy a single bed and frame. For a young child, if you put plywood on the frame under the mattress, that will be low enough so they can get in and out of bed safely.

What is an air crib?

B.F. Skinner developed an air crib to help his wife with the care of their second child. The air crib was a temperature-controlled environment, where the baby didn't need to have a blanket or heavy clothing, but could lie with just a diaper on in a temperature- and humidity-controlled box. The box was large enough to allow the baby to move around freely. Skinner believed that the baby would be more mobile and more comfortable, and therefore less prone to cry.

Some companies manufactured different versions of the air crib, which met with varied success.

What should a parent to do when a crib is recalled?

  • If your child's crib has been recalled you should contact the manufacturer as soon as possible (call the phone number they mention or visit the website listed on the recall notice). The sooner you get your name on the list, the sooner you'll receive the repair kit.
  • If getting in touch with the manufacturer isn't quick enough you should consider going back to the retailer that sold you the crib. If you have your original receipt even the better.
  • If your recalled crib is in perfect working order you can continue using it until your repair kit arrives. But first you have to be sure that all the hardware is intact and tight.
  • If you have a play yard you can put your baby to sleep in that.
  • Don't be tempted to repair your broken crib with your own hardware; DIY fixes may be just as unsafe as the recalled crib.
  • In general it isn't recommended that you share your adult bed with a sleeping infant. Earlier studies have shown that infants are up to 40 times more likely to suffocate in an adult bed than in a crib.
  • In general and with any crib, it's important to make sure that there are no missing pieces or loose hardware and you should check it regularly. A bare crib is a safe crib, so skip the comforters, pillows, bumper pads and stuffed animals since they can pose suffocation hazards.
