Many warned us not to buy this. "Too expensive." "You'll never use it." "They'll outgrow it so fast." "It isn't worth it." However, the heart wants what the heart wants. We loved the design. The function ended up proving them all wrong. This item of furniture was essential for our child's first six months. True, we didn't always use it during the night. It did allow me to shower every morning (amazing baby not included). We have wall-to-wall carpeting so I would just slide it into the bathroom and slide it out when I was done. Also, slid it into the living room/dining room/office and put the baby down in there to be close to us. It comes with two sheets so one is always available if the other is in the wash. The cushion comes off so you can use that part separately. May not be for everyone but was a must have for us. Also, amazing to see your baby grow by how much space they take up inside.
