Question about Baby Gear
I have a Jardine convertible crib model 0308L00 and misplced the manual. I would like to convert it to a day bed but can't. I can't even find a website for Jardine Enterprises. Can you give me any suggestions w/o writing a letter to the company with my request?
Hi, I know it looks hard but It's really simple .just take out the screws that are on each side on the bottom and top 1 on the top and one on the bottom each side( 4 in total )(Sides not on the front) and that's it, the front part comes off and you save it for when you make the bed a full size bed wich that part becomes the foot board. Hope this information helps! Good luck!!

I came up with a way to fix the problem. I bought a single bedrail for the crib and used that. Here's how I made it work. I raised the bed up from the bottom level to the one just above that and that I put on the wooden guard rail piece that came with the bed as instructed. Then I just put together the bed rail that I purchased and laid it on inside the metal frame. now normally because they're made for actual beds and non crib day beds there are 2 plastic joints that would hang over...but I just made sure that they were sitting on the inside of the metel frame. then I secured the bed rail with the straps that came with the rail and laid the mattress over top of it. For me it's worked well. My daughter is almost two and a half and so far has understood that the rail isn't a toy and not to play with it so, so far so good. The reason you raise up the metal frame one level is that without it the plastic joints on the bed rail would not have room between the mattress and the wooden guard rail. and the guard rail still protects and stablizes the metal frame and bed at that level.

For those that feel uncomfortable with the height of the guard rail isn't high enough to keep your toddler from falling out of bed, here's a suggestion for what we did to make it work so we could use a safety rail that we purchased from K-Mart. Make sure the guard rail is positioned so that the "lip" part is facing the ground (instead of up, which makes it come up just barely above the height of the mattress). Then, move the entire rail down so that instead of putting both sets of screws in on either side, you're only putting in the bottom screws but you're positioning them in the "top" hole on either side (again, with the "lip" portion pointing downward). This makes the guard rail flush with the bottom of the mattress/spring set, and allows you to put a standard safety rail under the crib mattress. Yes, the lower half of the guard rail is not securely screwed into place, but with the one set of screws, it's enough to secure the toddler bedframe. And yes, most safety rails you buy for regular beds say not for use on toddler beds, but we used it with my daughter for about a year with no issues. Here's the only pic I found that kinda shows what it looked like. You can see the bed in the far right side of the pic (http://www.babyhomepages.net/picture/?pid=118029¤talbum=)
After converting it back to a crib when my son was born almost 2 yrs ago, we have recently converted it back to a toddler bed, and this time we're using it with the guard rails installed correctly, with no problems with my son falling out of bed! Currently, I'm looking at finding the conversion rail set to convert the thing to a full bed, as now our son & daughter have decided that they want to sleep together in the same bed!! So now I've moved on to another problem....tracking down that elusive conversion rail kit! Ha!!

Thats so weird, I have this crib too. Did you see that Jardine has a recall on a bunch of cribs. This one is not included, but I swear it should be. My daughter has kicked the rail before and it sounded like it was cracked. Also, there is no rail included for the toddler bed, so..... be prepared for a lot of sleepless nights if your child resists and also falls out of the bed a lot. I have had to sleep on the hardwood floor in her room so that I am there in case she falls out of the bed. I put down a bunch of pillows and blankets that are almost as high as the bed itself. LOL! Can't buy a bed rail for this crib :(

I just found the instructions/manual/packet for our Madison Jardine crib. My husband is reading them as we speak. If you want them faxed to you, you can email me at email@example.com. This shouldn't be so difficult!
