Like the look of these but can't decide. Anyone used one or planning on using one? I know about the safety recall a few years ago but can't seem to find more recent threads online about people using them now.

Thoughts?

It's a nay from me. Doesn't look like it would be long before baby would get too big and heavy for it plus the frame is very clunky but looks as if it could topple forward quite easily.

A friend recommended this to us as we were really struggling with our DS. Well it may have worked for her kids but it was a big fat waste of money for us! He wasn't comforted by it one bit. And it's massive so if you get one make sure you have loads of room! I think that's a nay

I have a 9 month old who still fits easily. It's very stable. And we get a full nights sleep pretty much guaranteed.

We had one. It only got used v occasionally. By 5 months the 2 DCs who used it could roll over in it (even though that was said to be impossible). In my view that made it unsafe, as they were then face down in something soft at an awkward angle. If a baby did that for the first time alone...

Thanks Ladies. I think you've helped me move to Nay. Just been offered a Bednest from a friend (with the safety modification) so may just go with that!
