Question about Baby Gear
Does anyone have the specific manufacturer/model of the conversion kit that is compatible with the Jardine Madison Crib? I called the manufacturer who stated that I could go into and Mattress store and get a conversion kit as long as it was metal and used the hook on style? What does that mean, I have been searching on line for day's, I see that these concersion kit's are manufacturer specific and have yet to find a mattress store on line that has these. If any one has purchased a kit and could give me the name and model number so I can try and purchase this kit I would greatly appreciate it, I am sure whoever else is looking would appreciate it too.
I have a Jarin Maddison crib that I am wanting to convert to a full size. I was not sure where to get the conversion rails so I just emailed them at firstname.lastname@example.org (from my instruction packet) they said this:
"The conversion rails you are requesting can be purchased at any BRU Store their SKN# is 934405 or you do have the option of purchasing them at any mattress store in your area. You will have to ask for the “Universal Full Size Hook on Style Conversion Rails.” "
I found the SKN at the BRU site, and it costs $69.99. I was just reviewing the quality and I am unsure about this purchase, but felt that I could at least post this info.

I too, had the same problem. Unfortunately, Jardine does not have a website. After getting the runaround with Babies r us, I finally go tthe solution. You have to specifically Ask for the conversion side rail kit for the cherry Jardine Madison crib. It runs $129.99 and takes 14 weeks to get in. Yes, you read it right. 14 weeks! So if you are thinking about purchasing this crib to grow with your baby, the best advice I can give is to order it when you order the crib! Hope this helps!

I have the manual. If you need a copy, please email me at email@example.com and just be sure to put it in the subject also so I know it isnt spam. Also, I called the phone number on the manual and they advised me that all that needs to be done to get the conversion kit is to go to any mattress or bedding store and ask for a "Full size (assuming length since it is for a Twin frame) Metal and Hook-On Conversion Kit.
Hope this helps.

Jardine changed they're name to Bergamo. Stop searching under Jardine since the recalls they don't sell anything under that name. They now only carry the style MADDISON. Don't waste you time calling Jardine, they will tell you to read the small print in the manual & they never made conversion rails and that you have to buy them from Babysrus. Babysrus will only sell you the metal conversion rails and in store only.

I went into sleepy's with this same problem the other day. The picture in the manual calling them Full Size Conversion Rails is not specifically what they have. They do not have the long rails that connect headboard directly into footboard. BUT what they do have is almost like what you need except there are two separate parts that connect to each end of the bed frame (which are about 20 bucks each). Although you have to have a specific beadframe for this to work. Now if you don't you can purchase one and it equals to about the price estimated by Babies r us or even Jardine but it would replace your current bedframe. You also have the capbility of adjusting it specifically the height you need. Since the bedframe may not match the height of the slot on head and foot board.
How do you know if you have the right bedframe, well both ends of the bed frame where the wheels are should be at the tips of the bed and have slots in it for a possible connection. Standard bed frames have one connection at the top of the bed and the bottom kind of hangs over a bit not allowing it to reach to the end as well as not having the possibility of connection.
Hope this made sense.
I have not purchased it yet...just have all the info.

I have the Jardine (now Bergamo) Madison Lifetime crib and was told the same thing. Hook on style, full size metal conversion rail. I called the nearest Mattress Outlet store and with in 5 minutes he had them ordered from the warehouse! Now lets see if they fit! ;) Good luck to all. The people at Jardine enterprises are very rude!

I am also looking for conversion rails for the cherry Jardine madison crib. Didn't realize it was going to be hard until I read these posts! I would like to have the matching cherry color rails, but don't care if i just get metal rails because I will have a bedskirt over them anyway, so does anyone know what size metal bed rails I could get to fit this crib and where I could get them?? I don't want to spend over 100.00 on it either thats ridiculous when ive already spent almost 500.00 on the crib itself WITHOUT conversion rails!!
