I have the pod cot, and adore it, my son likes it too. The nifty actually has long gaps at either end, so it wouldnt do what I wanted, which was stop his arms and things, escaping out the sides.
It was easy to put together, but the mattress fits very snugly and it is hard to change sheets and tuck him in.
He is still on the higher setting as he doesnt sit or pull himself up yet, but he has really enjoyed transitioning to sleep in there
I had wanted an old meat safe style cotbut there were one second hand available in Victoria that I could find!
