Step 1

Unzip Bag & Lock Each Leg in Place

Put the Lotus Bag in a convenient place, unzip and open mattress flaps. Pull Lotus frame and bassinet legs out and set in front of you. Then, lift each leg fully to ‘lock’ into place. You may need to move the fabric to accomodate the swing of each leg.

Step 2

Flip Lotus Over & Unclip

Flip the Lotus over so that the legs are facing down. Undo the clip that holds the frame together.

Pro tip: Push outwards on the top rails while squeezing the levers and they will release easily.

Step 3

Unfold & Lock Top Rail

While holding the ends of the top rail, pull part to unfold and lock the top rail. Push the sides of the top rail apart to ensure they are properly locked.

Step 4

Insert Both Rocker Bases

Assemble the rocker base by inserting the connectors into the bottom of each leg. Once connected, you can choose “rocking” (when the connector archs down) or “stationary” (when connector arches up).

Step 5

Place Mattress Into the Lotus

Unfold the mattress and place it into the base of the Lotus. Press down to secure the mattress to the velcro below.

Optional: Rocking to Stationary

You can easily convert the bassinet from rocking to stationary by holding mid-way on a rocker arm and rotating 90 degrees until it 'clicks' into place. Repeat on both sides.
