Description
Sesam adjustable height crib with gates. The ceip has an electric lift, allowing knees to slide under the crib when sitting. It has a gate along one of the long sides. The specially designed gate lock enables a parent with weak muscles to open and close it, but it is difficult for the child to do so on its own.

Users comments
Erika used the Sesam bed for her first child and was very satisfied. She used it to care for the child as well as for play and sleep. The disadvantage was that it occupies a large amount of space and cannot go through doors.
