Does anyone have a spare instruction manual for a baby girl?

To ship a couple of large pictures in frames we found bike boxes were the best fit, I used lots of tape marked fragile. I covered glass with sticky plastic book covering, so if glass broke it would all stay in one piece and made cardboard corners to protect the frames.

 

Our Tchest size boxes came a bit battered and crushed if I hadnt packed them full, and apart from a wine glass I dropped after if travelled safely all that way, the rest of the glass and china made it safely.

 

Hope you found what you are looking for.
