Does anyone use (or have used) one of these? It seems really interesting to me but they're kind of expensive. I've been trying to get one on e-bay but the prices usually get driven up to $100+ and then people are charging $40 to ship it - I've even tried craigslist and freecycle. I can buy a brand new one for $160 from Target (if I don't want a choice in color) or $10 more from a local store here where I can choose exactly what color I want. I was just curious what you thought of it before I spend all that money. Thanks.

Here's the link to their website for those that aren't familiar.

It looks pretty cool and great for taking on vacations and such! I probably would have bought one if I'd heard about it when I was pg!

I have one, it's great! I wake up at 5:30 for work, and the baby usually isn't up by then. Our sleeping arrangement has her sleeping in the co-sleeper from the time she falls asleep at night (around 8pmish) until the first time she wakes up for the night, after which time she sleeps with me. Once I wake up to go to work, I lay her back down in the sleeper. We have a super tiny bed and I'd never let her sleep by herself on our bed (my husband is a bed hog) because she's SO wiggly! If you have a bed that's too small for exclusive co-sleeping (especially useful for naps) I would really suggest one.

We are on our second one. I gave our first one to a friend when I thought we were finished having babies after #2. I absolutely LOVE it!! We have a king-sized bed, but I still do the same thing that Neoma does. Taylor was a preemie and got used to be comforted by having someone place their hand on top of her head and one on her feet as she curled back into the fetal position. To this day, she needs to have her head against something to get totally relaxed. I don't want her wiggling around on the bed until her head touches the headboard, so the co-sleeper works great when I am not in bed with her.
