The Stokke Sleepi crib is a unique, oval-shaped crib. It is designed to grow and change with your child. It transforms from a bassinet, to a crib, a toddler bed, then to a twin-size bed. It can be used from birth up to around age 10. Its wheels allow it to be transported from room to room, or they can be locked to keep it in one place.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Read the instructions carefully and follow them in detail to ensure that the safety features of the bassinet and crib are not compromised. Keep these instructions for later use. Save the Allen key for later use. Re-tighten all screws 2 to 3 weeks after assembly.

  2. 2

    When assembling the bassinet or crib, do not tighten the screws until the whole unit is assembled. Doing this ensures you the easiest way to assemble. To ensure a safe environment for the child, check regularly that every component is properly and securely in place before placing the child in the bassinet or crib.

  3. 3

    Make sure the bassinet or crib is placed on a level and stable surface. After assembly, check and tighten all fittings and screws. Loose screw connections or parts could lead to the baby trapping a body part, or clothing (e.g. strings, necklaces, ribbons) which pose a risk of strangulation.

  4. 4

    Make sure there are no loose parts in the bassinet or crib which a child could swallow, as this could lead to suffocation or choking. Remove any loose parts that could provide a foothold for the child.

  5. 5

    Never place the bassinet or crib by an open fire or source of strong heat, such as electric bar fires or gas fires, due to the risk of fire. Place the bassinet or crib within reasonable distance from curtains, blinds, heaters and power points.

  1. 1

    The crib, including side rails, must be fully erected prior to use. Before each usage or reassembly, inspect the crib for damaged hardware, loose joints, missing parts or sharp edges. Do not use the crib if any parts are missing or broken. Ask your dealer or write to Stokke for replacement parts and instructional literature if needed. Do not substitute parts. If refinishing, use a non-toxic finish specified for children's products.

  2. 2

    To prevent suffocation from entrapment, use only mattresses provided by the manufacturer. Never use additional mattress or padding. Never use plastic shipping bags or other plastic film as mattress covers. They can cause suffocation. Do not use a water mattress with this crib.

  3. 3

    Strings can cause strangulation. Do not place items with a string around a child's neck, such as hood strings or pacifier cords. Do not suspend strings over the crib or attach strings to toys. Do not place the crib near a window where cords from blinds or drapes may strangle a child. Keep medication, string, elastic, small toys or small items such as money out of reach from any position in the crib.

  4. 4

    The crib base height can be adjusted to four basic heights. Make sure that the distance from the mattress to the top of the crib is never less than 11.8 inches in the highest position and 20 inches in the lowest position. The lowest position of the crib base is always the safest. As soon as the baby can sit up or pull himself up, set the mattress to the lowest adjustment position and remove bumper pads, large toys and other objects that could serve as a step for climbing out. Discontinue use of the crib when your child is able to climb out or reaches the height of 35 inches. When your child can climb in and out of the bed by himself, remove one side of the bed and adjust the crib base to the upper position.
