    With all the recalls..I have to ask

    I have to ask you ladies, raising kids these days, don't you see more recalls then ever before? Between cribs and strollers, bottles and formula, it's got to be frustrating. I just don't remember all these recalls years ago. I can't help but wonder why. Careless workers? Less checking on quality control?
    It's frustrating I would imagine.
    What are your thoughts on that?

    I think things were made with better quality material years ago. It seems like anymore things are put together cheaply so that companies can make a bigger profit.

    I agree, cheaper material and assembly could be to blame.

    Also, I wonder if products failed years ago as well, but people just didn't complain as much as they do now? So if not enough people reported it, no one knew?

    It's true, and probably a combination of everything. Just seems more now and I would imagine frustrating at times. Thanks for your input ladies! :)

    I do believe we are the generation asking for more in life, however, I also think that now the cutbacks on quality in order to bust the profit are, unfortunately, common practice!
