My son woke up screaming (instead of crying) from his nap. When I entered his room I found him face down on the mattress with both legs stuck in the crib slats. His left leg was stuck up above his knee, almost to his thigh. It was very difficult to free him because every slight move I made caused him to scream in pain. I was able to remove his right leg quickly but his left leg was stuck so tightly that I thought I would have to cut the wood slats. It took over a minute to free him - I had to lift his whole body up with one arm and work his pants up to allow for some slight give. He was distraught and now has several bruises on his left leg (which I documented).

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED. The first incident occurred roughly 6 months ago. Again, one leg was trapped and it led to extensive bruising. I did not report because I figured it was an isolated incident.

Attn: Babyletto/MDB Rep - do not reply with a canned "we follow industry standards" response. We can read your previous responses! I am trying to alert other consumers and the industry to consider different standards in the future! I hate the thought of converting to a toddler bed because honestly he is not ready for that. He is <35", and has never attempted to climb his crib! He just rolls around a lot in his sleep!
