I've found it good to feed in and great towards the end of pregnancy when I couldn't get out of other chairs very easily but it hasn't held up very well and I'm disappointed that it's peeling and that it isn't so soft any more.
spills wipe off easily, initially comfortable
At the two year mark the padding has compressed and the arms and the lower part of the back support (where my back presses up against it) is peeling quite badly, sqeaked after a few weeks and needed to be oiled
My husband almost died when i told him how much it cost but i can see even he loves it, and for time amount of time we have had it for and hasnt worn or become dodgy in time (and we use it in the lounge room now) it is very worth it.
Other than needing a bit more padding under the bottom it is really comfy and easy to fall asleep in when you up for hours at night feeding
at first it was fine but after a few months it squeeks alot but lubricant spray fixed that. which before we used the spray it woke bub up everytime i moved. It is expensive. It needs just a bit more padding under the bottom and behind the head
I absolutely loved this chair. My husband got it for me as a present and ist the best present he's ever bought! He even used it sometimes to rock the little one back to sleep.
Very comfy, especially for breastfeeding in the middle of the night. I used to feed in a standard lounge chair which was bad for my back. This chair keeps you in the correct posture but is so comfy! I love the rocking feature on both the chair and the footstool.
Nothing! Possibly may be a bit pricey when you consider what else you need to buy for a new baby (ie cot, changetable, car seat etc).

Know better, choose better.
I didnt use this product much because having a double story house sometimes i would feed downsatirs and sometimes upstairs. Ended up selling it on ebay. Otherwise the product is fairly good and comfortable. The ottoman was i think better because it was small enough to move anywhere i wanted
This chair was about $299 I think? when we bought it. I would have bought the Valco, but it was about $450! I tried both in the store, this one just needed lower back support(a small pillow from Freedom makes this chair more comfy for less than $10), and for $150 saving, we thought we could live with it. If I had the chance over, I think that I would have bought the Valco, even though it was more expensive. The quality of this one is alright, but if you were planning on having a tribe of kids, this one may be annoying after a while. This c...hair is the best in our rumpus room and so my husband will get in it if I am playing on the floor with bubs, so it is not an uncomfortable chair, it is good value. Great looking chair. very easy to assemble, and I was 9 months pregnant when I put it together!! Will last well for one or two children to feed. I should have bought this earlier in my pregnancy, that is when you need an easy to get in and out of chair the MOST!! Easy to get in and out of. We love the foot rest, doubles as a great way to do push ups and leg lifts while on the floor with bubs or just watching TV. There is very little lower back support (we have a roll pillow always on the chair for back support now). The pockets on the side lost their shape and fall outwards even with nothing in them! Lower quality, but for the price, it is a bargain.
We purchased this chair once I discovered I couldn't feed comfortably on our existing couches. This chair is firm but comfortable and provides excellent support for feeding. The footrest and the rocking is an added bonus. I would recommend this chair to other mothers but I would recommend waiting to purchase until after baby is born so that you can try several chairs with the baby to see what works best for you. Before baby was born, I probably would have chosen a more expensive chair, however I found the more padded and expensive models in ...the shop were not as firm as I needed to feed and the armrests were wrong width. Definitely recommend buying with a baby to "try it out". I highly recommend this chair. Very comfortable, firm and supportive for feeding baby. Easy to clean if you have a messy baby. The footrest is great too. Not very attractive amongst our furniture but a very necessary purchase. The chair did develop a squeak after 3 months, but responded well to some WD40!
I love the comfort factor of this chair. Easy to get in and out of without hands, smooth action and great for rocking back and forth to put baby to sleep.
Would recommend a chair like this.
So comfy to sit in. I saw this before I was pregnant and knew it would be one of the first things I would buy.
I had books sitting in the side pockets, and now they are all stretched and poking out even when nothing is in them. It wasn't as if they were heavy books, just any pressure on them and they don't regain their new shape.
