If you have been thinking of converting your Sorelle Berkley crib to a toddler bed, you are in luck. This crib comes with storage drawers and a changer. And while the dimensions won’t change, you won’t have to worry about re-painting it or replacing the mattress. Here are some easy steps that will help you make the change:

Sorelle cribs are designed to be a lifetime purchase. This means that they can be used for your child from the time they’re born until they’re teenagers. To convert the crib to a toddler bed, you first have to remove the side panel rails. To remove the side panel rails, you need to use an Allen key to unscrew the bolts that attach the side panels to the foot board. These bolts can be turned counterclockwise and then removed.

Depending on the size of your child, you can convert a crib into a toddler bed using a separate guard rail. You can also convert a toddler bed into a daybed or a full-size bed. The transitional rails can be purchased separately. Once your child is ready for the next step, the Berkley Crib can be transformed into a toddler bed.

To install the ladder, start by measuring the width of the bottom rail. You should measure it at a 45 degree angle and hold the stick away from the side of the bed. The ladder’s bottom pieces should be angled to fit evenly on the floor. Lastly, make sure to match the notches on the ladder with the step pieces. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to assemble the ladder.

The dimensions of the crib will not change, but the sides and end panels will have to be removed. You should then attach the rails to the bed’s side with screws. The process is much easier if you’ve removed the side rails and bottom slats. Before installing the rails, you’ll need to remove the mattress and bedding from the crib. You can then attach the brackets to the rails using the screws provided with the conversion kit.

To install the rails, you should ensure that there’s a 9 inch space between the headboard and footboard. Use an Allen key to tighten the screws. Make sure to tighten them properly. If you’re having trouble, you can also consult with BetterHelp, an online community of 20,000 licensed therapists. These professionals are available to help you with your conversion. The process will take approximately 30 minutes.
