I debated on buying this for a while, because of all of the negative reviews. We went to a store that carried them to test it out, and they had them put together incorrectly! And I thought "what expensive junk!". When I got home I read every review I could find, and I decided it was worth a try (mostly because of Amazon's free baby returns and all the reviews saying "read the directions!") and installed it according to the directions, and my baby goes in and out just fine! You definitely have to make sure the seat isn't too far forward. I'm not really sure how we could use the Tripp Trapp without the baby set, (our daughter is 8 months old). We love it!
