To never want DD to sleep in a Cot-bed again?

Just wanted to warn all mums -
this cot bed from Mothercare, just BROKE this morning - the slats came away from the frame on the side that you raise and lower.

My 8 mth old DD slipped onto the floor thru the gap. The exposed wood barely missed scratching her. Luckily her nursery is carpeted + we had a kids rug there, so she wasn't (visibly) hurt. It was awful to hear her shocked crying and run in to find her like that. Taking her to GP.

We got the cot from relatives who had 2 of their babies in succession sleep in it. Still, its not that old. To think my cot, 30-odd years old, is still in circulation...

We have a cot from mamas and papas that has a smilar one handed drop side - I think it's crap.

We had to take it back after a couple of months as the mechanism broke and I couldn't lower the side (couldn't actually lft my ds out as I was heavily pg at the time). And now it is brokem again although not dangerously so.

Thought it was a great idea and very easy to use when I got it but would never get this type again - not that I will need to!

By the way I do think YABU to not put her in a cotbed of any description again - just this one. Go get a new one with fixed sides or the normal type of drop sides.
