Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to use it with my own baby yet BUT my friend came to visit us right after I received this in the mail so I had her 3 month old daughter test it out for the week. My friend was so impressed with the size of the crib and the apparent comfort her daughter experienced, she bought one when she returned home. Before sleeping in that crib, her daughter wouldn't sleep anywhere besides the co-sleeper in the bed with mom. To me, that's a wonderful clue that my daughter will use this crib with ease. Since our nursery is in our bedroom (we only have one bedroom), we need to save as much space as we can and this does it for us (for now, until she grows out). It's much longer than expected though, in a good way, so I know it'll be used longer than I originally thought!! It's easy to assemble and it is light weight. I'm 39 weeks pregnant and I have no trouble moving it around and collapsing/ unfolding it. It definitely helps that the color scheme is super cute!
