This travel crib is beautifully designed, durable & strong. The bassinet portion is deep & large (wish I had known this, I would have gotten this earlier). My daughter is 8 months, so I am not using the bassinet, but it was designed very well as they made sure that it is very secure when it is in use, via strong snaps and buckles.
The push through/push down mechanism is smooth & easy to use. The mattress is durable, sturdy & comfortable. You don't know how bad I wish I could climb into this thing with her. She can sit comfortably with several toys, & lay down with plenty of room.
It is heavier than some other travel cribs, but I've also lifted heavier ones. Not difficult to move & lift when necessary & packing it up is easy! I also see no problem taking this with us to picnics & family BBQs.
Love that it is off the ground with NO sagging, even with carpeted floors, I did not want her laying against the floor. We keep it in the living room while we are home. & It unpacks easily at both grandma's houses & anywhere else. Nuna products have NOT disappointed me.
