A crib is one of the most basic necessities for a baby, but it can be hard for parents to choose one that fits their needs. Sleigh 3-in-1 cribs allow parents to convert the crib into a toddler bed and a day bed when their baby grows. Delta provides two different sleigh 3-in-1 crib models -- Glenwood and Venetian. These cribs come in different wood finishes and provide a stationary, non-drop-side design for added safety.

Glenwood Sleigh Crib

Attach the front and rear left legs to the left side of the crib using two dowels, two 6x38 mm bolts, two 6 x55 mm bolts and two nuts. Use the longer bolts and nuts on the bottom of the crib. Use the shorter bolts and dowels on the top of the crib. Repeat on the right side of the crib with the right front and rear legs.

Place the left-side top in the slot on the left side of the crib. Insert two 6x38 mm bolts through the holes in the legs and secure using the M4 Allen wrench. Repeat on the right side of the crib.

Attach the back of the crib to the left and right sides of the crib using four 6x65 mm bolts and four barrel nuts. Tighten with the M4 Allen wrench. Use the screwdriver to hold the barrel nuts in place.

Secure the mattress support in all corners using a 6x15 mm bolt in each corner. Tighten with the M4 Allen wrench. Place the mattress on the highest position for a newborn and lower as the child grows.

Attach the front side of the crib using four 6x65 mm bolts and four barrel nuts. Tighten with the M4 Allen wrench and use the screwdriver to keep the barrel nuts in place. Place the M4 Allen wrench and the assembly instructions booklet in the pouch on the mattress support.

Venetian Sleigh Crib

Attach the two stabilizer bars to the left and right sides of the crib using one dowel, one assembly bolt and one barrel nut on each end. Tighten with the M4 Allen wrench and hold the barrel nut in place with the screwdriver.

Secure the back of the crib between the crib ends and on top of the stabilizer bars. Use two assembly bolts and two barrel nuts on each side with the M4 Allen wrench.

Secure the mattress support to the crib using one mattress support bolt on each corner. Tighten with the M4 Allen wrench. Place the mattress support on the highest position for a newborn and lower as the baby grows. Make sure the writing on the mattress support pouch faces up.

Attach the front of the crib using two assembly bolts and two barrel nuts on each side. Adjust with the M4 Allen wrench and hold the barrel nuts in place with the screwdriver. Place the M4 Allen wrench and the assembly instructions booklet in the pouch on the mattress support.
