I really like it. I bought it off eBay from someone who lived within an hour so that I could pick it up. Shipping is nuts on these things, but it is between 25-30 pounds, depending on what you get.

I set it up today. All the kids love it. They all think that it would be SO comfortable to sleep in a hammock. I'm really glad that we got a frame. It can go from living room to bedroom without a tremendous amount of effort. It compacts down pretty well for travel. We have to visit family in July so this will work out well. Plus, it can go outside with us for meals on the deck.

The foot panel zips and ties so it seems to be more safe. Dh did not like the design of the Happy Hangup because the foot area was so open. We also looked at a few other designs and he preferred this style best. He also wasn't big on putting hooks through the ceiling. And I like the mesh sides rather than all fabric because I do think that it will give more ventilation of CO2 better than cotton fabric.

It also came with the Jump-jump and the mosquito net. The extras are really pretty affordable. I will probably end up ordering the heavy duty spring for the Jump-jump and maybe a couple of extra sheets. I think that the snugglers would be good for newborn stage, but it isn't like I don't have a hundred things that would work just as well.

Hi I'm just bumping this up to see how many of you actually ended up buying any of these hammocks and how you liked them?

Dh and I are trying to find something compact to put in our room, or maybe in other rooms in the house as well, since we're not going to have an actual room for the baby but we're not comfortable with total co-sleeping.

How do you like them so far? What are the pros and cons?

My biggest concern is how well do you think they will work when the babies become mobile? Especially sitting and pulling up?
