The arrangement of baby berth, which is attached to the lower berth, is in such a way that baby cannot fall off the seat while sleeping. Straps have also been provided to secure the baby.  

The baby berth can be used after being rotated to bring it to the same level as the lower berth. A slider must also be locked to guarantee that the berth is safe.   

When it is not in use, it can be fixed with the help of a stopper, which is underneath the lower berth.
