We couldn't have done it without this Pack n Play- we have been using it since our little one was 2 days old, and keep it on our first level so we don't have to run upstairs to put him down for a nap or change diapers. The "vibrate" mode on the napper is the only thing that keeps him content or asleep when he is inconsolable, and as someone with back problems, the height of the changing table is great. My only complaint would be that the noise/music options hardly play audibly enough (even when increasing the volume all the way), and there have been times we'd accidentally pressed the button and not noticed for hours.. but hasn't seemed to make much of a dent in the battery life (vibrate still works at 4 weeks, and we run it for about 2 hrs/day). The storage option below is also extremely convenient to keep extra towels, blankets, diapers, etc. Also of note is that the lighter-colored canopy over the napper (ours is a cream color) still lets in a decent amount of light, so if your LO is sensitive to light, you'll need to make sure to keep the lights low, regardless of having it up.
