According to the CPSC, you should not resell it and should disassemble it prior to discarding it. Is it okay for me as a consumer to resell, donate or give away a crib that does not meet the new crib standards? A consumer should not resell, donate or give away a crib that does not meet the new crib standards, such as trying to resell ...

I have a few tips that worked for us to get our son to go to sleep in his crib without crying, although we haven't mastered the staying there all night part quite yet. We are not keen on the leaving to cry (Weisbluth - healthy sleep habits, happy child) or controlled crying (Ferber - solve your child's sleep problems) approach so I won't cover that here ...

Assuming you mean an actual minicrib, which in the US has a size of aroiund 38 inches long by 23 inches wide (for the mattress), this will depend on your child heavily. (For comparison, a full/standard sized crib is 58 inches by 28 inches.) (Note: minicribs seem to vary some, particularly on the width. Make sure the crib you buy and the mattress you buy ...

This looks like the new model... http://www.amazon.com/Lorex-LW2731-Recording-Monitor-Wireless/dp/B00ARJQRLU We use this older model, which has a dedicated monitor, but no mobile app. ...

You could use any ip camera(such as a foscam or drop cam) and simply buy a low cost tablet as the monitor device. Any Android or iPad device would do the trick. Amazon kindle fire for example is very low cost and would work with any ip camera. Or you may already have an old iPod touch or tablet that you don't use or could be used for this that would cost ...

It should be affordable. A crib is not something that needs to cost a lot of money. There should be a high availability. Stick to cribs from well-known brands or from large retailers. This can make any possibly return/warranty steps easier (in theory), and increases the chances of you being aware of any possible future recall notices, should they happen. ...

I have an eight month old who used to do this same thing. What worked for me: Give him five minutes or so before going to him. A lot of times, my baby would be at a light point in her sleep cycle, and start stirring and crying, but would still have her eyes closed. If I would let her fuss for a few minutes, she would often move back into a deeper sleep ...
