The Sumba Front Rail Cover-Up is for both function and design. It will protect your foot board on the convertible cribs and it looks great while doing it. For the parent choosing not to use a bumper, it can add the needed decor lost when the bumper is removed. Cover ups can be used with a full bumper as well. Wash gentle cycle, separate, cold water. Tumble dry low or hang dry. This collection is neutral, perfect for a boy or a girl.
