Functional and safe
I bought this despite a couple of negative reviews and although I can see their point, I am not disappointed. Assembly was difficult but once done correctly the stand was safe and the under sling useful for blankets. The Snug bassinet attaches securely to the frame allowing the assembly to be moved between rooms by the Snug's handles. I recommend that an improvement would be to add telescoping to the legs for babies with reflux: the Snug is secure on an angle, not sure about the Nest though.
Does not work well with original nest
We recently bought this stand after my brother gave us his old Phil & teds nest. Unfortunately the stand does not work perfectly with the original nest. We figured that might happen but we are going to keep it anyways. If we had the newer nest I'm sure I would give a 5-star rating - it was easy to assemble, is compact, seems sturdy. Really nothing negative about the stand itself!
I bought this to go with the Phil & ted's cot which I love but this is just awful. Took 2 of us 2 hours to figure out which way the legs go (there really should be arrows or marks or something) and a couple of the screws wouldn't fit the holes and the main weight bearing fabric that stretches across the frame to bear the cot doesn't stretch far enough no matter how hard you pull it. Very badly designed. If it wasn't such a hassle to return I would have done it immediately. Very disappointed.
The stand is great, but the assembly was difficult as the holes for the screws didn't correspond with the screws, causing me to make new holes, clearly it wasn't tested before it left the factory, disappointing.
