Is a chinchilla the right pet for me?

So ive heard lots about how to take care of chinchillas but virtually nothing about what its like to own one. How messy are they? Are they a hassle as ferrets seem to be? How much attention do they need? What kind of bad habits do they have? In what ways is it fun/ rewarding to own a chinchilla? We are looking for a pet that we can love, and i will be having a a baby this august so prefferably not a mean animal. I will not be allowing my baby to hold or really play with the chinchilla as i realize any small animals arent really good for kids to play with but if my baby sticks her hand in its cage will it bite her? We are kind of a nocturnal family so a nocturnal animal would be great for us please let me know anything about these animals before i purchase one. Any funny/ horrific stories good/ bad chinchilla experiences are appreceiated!
