    I'm not pregnant so hope you don't mind me replying! We have the cot and change table, both are onto our 2nd bubba and they are great. No complaints at all about either of them.

    We bought the Singlar cot 4yrs ago for $99 - it's still going strong and is on to the second baby. I've had no issues with it.

    We have the gulliver cot and change table and also a set of draws from ikea. No problems at all with it. The high chair is also a winner!

    I can't help with your actual question lol as I have no ikea furniture aside from a kallax shelving unit, but if you are thinking purely based on price then you can get some great deals elsewhere too! We got our cot (childcare brand) from target on clearance for $99. I bought a change table on eBay brand new for about $80 (sleigh style with 2 shelves). Cot mattress baby bunting regularly have them 15% off.
    I am a choice member and just checked their cot reviews most of the ikea cots did ok (scored 65%) but the $99 one was scored 40% and not recommended due to possible limb entrapment and holes where fingers can get caught too. The cheapest cot to score 100% on their test was a $200 babies r us cot

    Also the reason for the recall is because people are not installing it properly - in that it comes with equipment to fix it to the wall and people were not doing that!
    Any piece of furniture can topple over I guess!!
