This beautiful dark cherry bed starts out as a crib with a side that raises and lowers. As your child grows, you can take off both sides for their first bed, and finally put one side back on to make it into a sofa / daybed. The instructions are included as are, if you'd like them, the original safety mattress for babies, and the much thicker mattress for a child, and the linen (sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases) that goes with them. I have three of the cots. Our children are all moving on now and we no longer need them. The original price was £1695. They are in remarkably good condition although with some wear and tear.
