What configuration should I choose?

Lyra has an adjustable base has two heights for safety; use the higher position for a newborn or infant who is not yet sitting, and the lower position for a sitting infant or standing toddler. The legs come with your choice of height extenders for tall parents*, and caster wheels for families who may need to move the cot around the house for convenience. Once your sweet babe reaches toddlerhood, convert your cot into a toddler bed with the included safety guardrail (from 2Y +) for the next stage of their sleep journey.

*For safety and easy access for your toddler, remove height extenders from legs when in the toddler bed configuration.
