Why did I buy this thing? It was so cute and stylish. My coworkers told me I'd love having it in my bedroom. In fact, I did love having my baby close by. However, I really dislike this model. First, it does not prop the baby up at all, which is bad when your baby gets acid reflux. We bought a doctor recommended pillow to prop our child up, but it did not fit in the bassinet. That was not the only issue with its size. My child is tall, and he grew out of the bassinet within a month or two. He would scoot into the corners and scare me that me might suffocate. I think a pack n' play is a much better solution. It can be set up, taken apart, travel, and does all the things the bassinet does (except rock). Oh, and did I mention that the bassinet doesn't rock well? It also doesn't fit through our doors! So forget letting the baby nap in the living room while you get things done. We had to take the whole thing apart and slid it sideways to get it out. What a bummer! Go with the pack n' play, and save a lot of money.
