The principal object of the invention is to
provide for the attachment of a baby bed or crib
to a conventional bedstead in such manner that
it will be most convenient for the occupant of the
bed to attend the infant and the latter’s crib is
so rdisposed in relation to the larger bed that it 10
will interfere in no way with the comfort of the
occupants thereof.
Another object of the invention is to provide
an infant’s crib, attached as described to a con
ventional bed, with the further provision that it
is capable of being shifted from a position over
the foot portion of the bed to a position beyond

Continuing with a more detailed description of
the drawing, reference is primarily made to Fig

The recesses c in the slot a are adapted to

Il below the rod mountings I3, when the crib
I2 is in operative and inoperative positions. In
other words, when the crib is positioned as shown
in solid lines in Figures 1 and 2, the links I8 are
so positioned that theywill support the crib by
having one recess c in engagement with the pin
22. However, when it is desired to shift the crib
to the position shown in dotted lines in thesev
figures, the upper ends of the links are detached

What is claimed is:
