We purchased the Charleston convertible crib for my daughter 2 years ago that we have already
changed over to a
daybed.The crib has the Graco name on it, but apparently is manufactured by LaJobi. Three times in
the past two weeks she has woken up screaming because as she sleeps she has been able to wiggle her
leg between the slats of the bed and has gotten her knee stuck.This has caused bruising and of
course panic. I fear that more serious injuries could occur. We purchased this bed in the hopes
that she would use it for years to come, but we will not be able to
if it is not safe for her to sleep in. I am not aware of any recalls on this bed.

I contacted the LaJobi company and they emailed me back stating that the crib meets all government
standards. While I understand that they meet the standards,that doesn't mean that the standards are
correct. I'm sure my daughter is not the only child that has had a leg stuck between the slats of
the crib.

Is there anything that can be done about this. I feel that my child could have easily broke her leg
if we hadn't come in to assist her calmly.

Thank you.
