For my first two I had the older version of this chair and we loved it so much we bought this one for our third after a friend's heavy 3.5 year old toddler climbed in and broke the chair. I love the fact that it is suitable from birth, you can pretty much lie baby flat. There are two handles on the side of the chair you turn up to adjust the back-rest. The chair also bennefits from removable 'pillows' with a bottom part and head part that can be adjusted and as baby gets older completely removed. The pillows keep baby very comfy. The arm with the toys can be removed easily. The chair can rocked by foot or as baby gets older by baby's own movements. The chair can also be put on non rocking by turning a plastic feet down at the back and bottom of the chair as shown in the picture. This is fab for when baby starts weaning and cannot sit unsupported yet. (mine do not tend to sit unaided until they are about 10 months!) The fabric and pillows are fully removable and washable. The instructions I believe recommend hand or surface wash only but I wash them at 30 in the washing machine and the fabric stays fine and fits the frame every time. It is easy to take on trips and holiday as it folds flat if you take the metal bits appart. I absolutely love this chair and would recommend it. The only reason i have given this chair only 3 stars is the fact that the harnas is covered with fabric 'flaps'. They are very stiff and we find it very annoying when you strap baby in, it makes it a real struggle. We thought about cutting them off but then baby's toddler sisters would be able to open the harnas as the harnas itself is very easy to open. The normal old fashioned harnas was much better and much safer.
