This product looked fantastic and versatile. It is sturdy and really useful that it can be moved up and down - we have 2 dogs so it was important to us that the baby was out of reach. The fact it charges into a seat and high chair is work great, although we’ve yet to use it as our little boy is only 6 weeks old. The main reason I’m disappointed with this product is that you have to purchase a mattress seperately to use it as a crib. This was £20, which wasn’t a big issue. However, the quality of the Chicco mattress is alarming - there is a big dip in the middle and it seemed the baby was sinking into the mattress, which is obviously concerning given that they’re supposed to sleep on firm surfaces. I contacted Chicco about this, but was disappointed with their unhelpful reply that all products are safety tested and so it can’t be an issue. However, since reading other reviews on the mattress, it seems I’m not the only one with this concern. What we’ve done now is to buy a standard Moses basket mattress, which is better but is a little small for the crib, so again isn’t ideal. A further issue with the cribs is the wheels - they often get stuck, particularly on carpet, so it’s not as simple to move between rooms as the product claims. Overall, the product design is great in principle, but the mattress safety is a concern so I wouldn’t recommend this.
Grows with your baby, height adjustment, reflux tilt
When tilted the sides are low.
We bought this as our babies crib for upstairs. As I had a c section the height adjustment was so helpful as bending down was painful for me. As our baby grew he began to have painful reflux and we were recommended to tilt his crib, the chicco hug has this as a setting so no need to mess around with wedges or books! We have now bought the high chair tray and cover for when we start weaning in the new year. The fact this grows with your baby means you're not needing to keep buying different equipment. It is also longer than standard moses baskets so baby can get more use out of it for sleeping.
Downsides is it needs certain chicco sheets and when its tilted for reflux the bottom is low so as baby starts to move more it could pose a risk. We have it in a darker grey colour but we love it and recommend to all.
We purchased this for our newborn and was so happy with it. It comes in a few colours so great for a boy or girl. We liked the fact it could be at variable heights and it also had a tilted sleeping position which was great as our baby suffered with reflux.
It also featured a great wake up and go to sleep tune which our baby loved. All in all a great purchase and you won’t be disappointed.
I absolutely LOVE this! We got this when my son was two months old, he was clingy and unsettled constantly. I put him in this and he was so content and happy. The music plays a choice of happy day time music or sleepinh music. It also has a few lights for him to watch and then a bar with toys dangling for him to play with. It can be used from birth to three years and used ad a cot, slightly elevated lie down position, seat or highchair. It has wheels so can be easily moved around the room - perfect for clingy babies who don't like you leaving the room!! It is easy to clean too which is great for weaning purposes! Use this daily with my two year old and baby, they both love using it.
Easily manouvered, comfortable, large sleeping area
Mattress and tray table need to be bought separately adding to the expense
A brilliant option for somewhere for baby to sleep and sit. It was apparently quite fiddly to put together, however, this was done by my husband so I cannot really comment on this.
Our little boy did not like his Moses basket but settles really well in this. It is far more comfortable for him, especially with the added mattress. This does have to be bought separately though so is an added expense.
This is bigger than a Moses basket so the mattress requires flat sheets rather the ones designed for a Moses basket mattress, although i do believe Chicco make ones designed to fit now. As it is bigger it lasts longer than a Moses basket and the adjustable height means it can be raised to the height you want to match your bed/chair whatever it will be next to.
This product will last a lot longer than the next to me crib which is why we chose it. I am glad a new high chair tray has been brought out by Chicco, however once again this is at an added expense so anyone buying this will need to factor this in.
