I just received this item and am very pleased with it. Everything looks and works exactly as specified and the set-up was super easy (took me about 5 minutes). I'll be having my third c-section and from experience I knew I'd need something that provided all-in-one accommodations. I had an Arm's Reach co-sleeper with my last two babies and I can see how people like having their baby at their bed level. For me though, it was extremely painful to pick up my baby without getting out of bed to do it (I couldn't just sit up in bed and lean over to the side to pick them up...using the side muscles of your stomach after a c-section is impossible without some major discomfort). So since, the only benefit of having the co-sleeper was useless for me because of my c-section, I opted for something else this time. This play yard is perfect because I can still use it as a bassinet which relieves any extra bending over and the changing table is right there as well. So, no kneeling down or walking back and forth to another room to change diapers. I also like how the diaper and wipe holder are at the same level as the changing table...again no extra bending over which can be a pain (literally) after a c-section. I specifically chose this playpen over others because the bassinet can remain attached to the playpen while being folded back up...no need to disassemble a bunch of parts to pack it away...although the changing station has to be removed...but taking those items off is very simple since they just click on and off (the changing table fits in the carrying bag, but not the diaper holder...that can be brought along separately though so it's not a big deal). I also chose this playpen because of the ease of moving the changing table out of the way when not in use and the fact that it attaches to the playpen in such a way that it won't lean to the side when I put my baby in it. Last of all, I love that I can continue to use this product as my child grows rather than tossing out a useless bassinet and having to go buy a play yard later on.
