I did a lot of research before deciding on this product, and I love it. Many of the problems talked about in the poor reviews are easily solved.

-Many people complained that there is nothing to attach the bassinet to the base, other than gravity. This is absolutely not true. There are straps on either side (separate from the straps for the changing table) specifically designed to attach the bassinet. They took a minute to find under all the ruffles, but they are there.
- Many complained about not having extra sheets. Some even said that First Years does not make extra sheets for this bassinet. Again, this is completely false. I found extra sheets for a very reasonable price on their website.
- Some complained that the hood does not stay up on its own. That is correct, which is why there are velcro straps on either side of the hood to hold the hood up. When the hood is lowered, the velcro straps tuck away where the rough material can't touch the baby.
- Many complained about the quality of the mattress. I've had no problems with the mattress, although this seems to be a common problem among other people.
- Some say that the changing table is inconvenient because the bassinet has to be lifted off the base to get to it. This isn't a big deal for me. I'd much rather lift the bassinet and change the diaper there than take my baby to her room in the middle of the night to change her on the changing table there. It's a matter of opinion. Some people apparently hate it. I love it.
- Many talk about this bassinet being wide and not fitting through doors. I haven't had that problem at all. Granted, there isn't much extra space when pushing the bassinet through the doors, but it does fit. I guess it's just how your home is designed.

pros: relatively easy to put together, seems confortable for the baby, has rocking features which is a plus, price is not prohibitive

cons: many features dont seem to be needed: we dont seem to use the changing table function at all and rarely do we use the sounds

I bought this for my 3rd child. I had always wanted a bassinet with vibration for my other kids, and did a ton of research to get just the right one this time around. THIS IS IT! Any of the issues with the mattress as stated in other reviews must have been fixed because I had NO issues with anything on this bassinet. The light is perfect, sounds and vibrations-adjustable & great, mattress is comfy but not too hard or soft & a breathable material. Canopy reclines great and handle can be folded down. Underneath storage aplenty! My son was in this as long as I could possibly keep him in it. Sat him in the upright position to look at the mobile while I would shower. So convenient to take on trips instead of the pack n play for an infant! Used until he was 7 months old, 17.5 lbs. Just love it!

I received this as a baby shower gift. It was very easy to put together & looks just like the picture. The reason I'm rating this 3 starts is because it doesn't wheel around very easy on carpet and because the wiring inside it was broken. At first we thought it was a problem with our batteries but after closer observation we noticed that the little green wire on the inside was broken off. We should have checked this when we first got it but to tell you the truth after we put it together we just left it in the baby's room.

With the exception of a small portion at the top end, the sides of this are padded rather than mesh which can pose a suffocation risk if your baby has his/her face up against the side of the bassinet (think crib bumper). My baby is a squirmer and several times I woke up to find her laying with her face a half an inch from the side...scary! With a simple redesign this bassinet would be fine but I wound up getting a play yard for our room because it has mesh sides.
