I just got my 5-in-1 bassinet today. I was a little nervous about it, having read all of the bad reviews on here. While my husband was putting it together, I brought up each critique I read and he pointed out all of the so-called problem areas. I've listed the ones I can think of below:

*DIFFICULT TO ASSEMBLE/CAN'T FIND INSTRUCTIONS*
While it's true that the instructions weren't loose in the box, they were pretty easy to find. The bassinet folds in half for portability and that's the way it's packaged in the box. The instructions were sandwiched in-between the two halves. He found them right away and didn't have to look it up online or assemble anything extra. He said the instructions were very straight forward and put it together quickly. Being a teacher, I can't help but think that the people who complained about how hard it was to assemble didn't read the instructions.

*BASSINET DOESN'T ATTACH TO THE BASE*
There's a short little strap with a snap style buckle on each side of the base. It's a little hidden by the ruffles, but there's a slit in the fabric where you can pull them through. Once he snapped it into place, it was very secure. He was able to lift the entire unit from the handle of the bassinet.

*IT'S TOO TALL FOR A BED*
When he first put it together, it was very tall. I mentioned how people had said it was too tall to fit comfortably next to a bed. It turns out that the legs are adjustable and have 6 different height settings. We put it on the lowest and it's below my bed level- and I have a pretty average bed.

*THE HANDLE WON'T FOLD DOWN*
I read a couple of reviews that said how they wished the handle would go down because it's hard to get the baby in and out. He found little buttons you press at the base of each handle.

I've used this strictly as a bassinet next to our bed, and it has been fantastic. The best feature is the night light, which enables me to check on my baby in the middle of the night and nurse her without waking up her or my husband. It goes out on it's own in case you fall asleep without turning it off, which is very convenient and saves the batteries. I also love the versatility of folding up the wheels so it can rock like a cradle if I want. I haven't used the changing table portion at all. Though we did carry her in the removeable carrier once or twice, it was too large and cumbersome to be very convenient, so now I just use a Pack'n Play in the other room instead.

Our baby is almost outgrowing this bassinet- something that makes me sad, as I've enjoyed using it.

Here's what I liked and didn't like:

* Carrying the bassinet around was a bit of a nuisance (if the baby is in it, it's kinda heavy- if not, you gotta put down the baby, relocate the bassinet, get the baby again...).

* I never used the changing table- you have to take the bassinet off the unit. Who wants to deal with that in the middle of the night? Easier to use a real changing table.

* The rocking feature is nice, but I didn't use it that often. It was a bit of a hassle popping the wheels in and out.

* An extra fitted sheet for the mattress would have been nice.

* This may be just a problem with our particular unit, but the vibrating control sometimes works and sometimes doesn't despite fresh batteries. Not a big deal since the sounds work fine.

* Ability to adjust height. If you have a tall bed, low bed, don't worry: there are lots of height options here.

* Cute toys hanging off tall hood. If you don't want them there, you can easily remove them. The toys are in sight, but beyond reach.

* The Number One reason I like this bassinet a lot is because of the mesh siding. It lets air circulate- something that is very good if your baby, like ours, moves around and ends up with the head turned facing the side. I always move my baby toward the middle again, but it was reassuring to know that the mesh was letting fresh air in- just lift the outside ruffles out of the way.

All in all this bassinet has a whole bunch of extra features we really didn't feel were necessary. We might have been happier with a plain and traditional bassinet, except that we loved the breathable mesh siding. You can use this bassinet until your baby can roll over or push up or when your baby is 17.5 lbs- whichever happens first.

This is a great purchase, easy to assemble, I did it by myself in about a .5 hour with just a phillips screw driver. It's easy to move from room to room.

At first I was aprehensive about getting a bassinet...but for us it has been a lifesaver. Our master suite is upstairs and the baby's room is downstairs. During the day, she naps in her crib in her room but at night the bassinet makes it so easy for us...I can't imagine running downstairs in the night. Some people who criticize bassinets say because the baby is right there, you respond to little sounds instead of giving the baby time to get comfy and go back to sleep herself. Well, trust me, we're so tired that we do NOT jump up with every grunt or squeak. In fact, I think because I hear her sounds I've learned what are normal sleeping sounds and what sounds are true distress sounds.

As for the features of this bassinet...we have not used the changing table or the bed leveler. We have it on a rocking feature although, rocking the bassinet doesn't seem to soothe our baby. We have taken the top off a few times...in the mornings I will carry her into the bathroom so she can sleep nearby when I shower (you can't hear using a monitor.) When we visit grandparents we also take this along so the baby can stay on her sleep schedule. (Why don't we just use the carseat at their houses? My pediatrician told us NOT to allow the baby to sleep in the carseat when we are not in the car.)

As for other's criticisms:

I used Carters bassinet sheets...they fit great.

The mattress is a bit flimsy, but we use one of those baby positioners that prevents SIDS on top of the mattress which is firm and comfy for baby. Occaisionally the SIDS thingy is in her crib and I didn't want to run down stairs...baby does not seem bothered by the mattress.

One word of advice...this bassinet cannot function as a cosleeper. You can make it the same level as the bed but it has a high side so its not like you can reach out and easily soothe baby using this feature.
