I didn't register for one but we got one as a gift and my LO slept in it until he was about 10 weeks old. It was great for us. When he was a newborn, he took all of his naps in it and he slept in it at night. I liked that it was small enough to have in the living room during his naps, and you could touch it and it would rock on its own for a bit. After a while though, he just looked uncomfortable in it, too big I guess. So I started slowly transitioning him to the crib.
So, I don't know, yes I really liked it but it's not a must have if you want to have him nap in the crib or swing.
I'm planning to have my twins sleep in RNPs but have also heard about their possible tendancy to contribute to flat head. I've read that the Boppy Noggin Nest pillow (used with the RNP) can help prevent it. I'll probably try it.
LOVED the RnP. I bought it for DD2, and it was great. She napped in it pretty well, and DD1 loved to pull her around in it so they could "play" together.
I think any piece of baby gear can give baby a flat head if you leave them in it all the time.

this is exactly what we did and no flat head issues. The best baby item hands down is RNP.
I bought one off Craigslist before baby was born.
My sister gave me this, so this is what I've used when I need to park baby somewhere for me to do something. He really likes the mobile and lights, we've used this pretty much every single day. http://www.amazon.com/Tiny-Love-Rocker-Napper-Brown/dp/B0073DNYSW/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1354985442&sr=8-5&keywords=baby+sleeper+rocker
DS is over 3 months old, and I finally used the RnP for the first time this week. He has been sick (they think he has whooping cough, blah), and part of the care instructions they told me was to keep his head elevated when he sleeps. So for the past several nights, he's slept in the RnP. The size is really nice because I can pull it up right beside the bed so I can keep an eye on him better too.
I think the RnP would have gotten more use if I didn't get the Tiny Love Rocker. I'm glad we have the RnP right now though, even if it has barely gotten used, I wouldn't want DS to sleep overnight in the Tiny Love Rocker; I think the RnP is shaped better for not allowing the baby to turn in his sleep, even though they both have the seat-belt. Glad we didn't pay full price for the RnP though (I think I paid $20) since we've barely used it.
1 cycle until we can TTC again...
emolee84:Anything can cause a flat head if you leave baby in it too long
This. FTM here but we purchased a RNP and I'm not concerned with the flat head issues. I feel like leaving baby in any item for too long can cause this problem.
We loved out RNP and used it a lot for the first 3 months. A bonus was that it was so much easier to travel with than a pack n play when we were short on space. We'll be using it for this LO too.
