Re: Co-rooming options

I usually side car a pack n play bassinet, but it's too difficult for me to get in and out of bed PP that way. This time we're using a bassinet with wheels ($15 on CL) and I can just move it wherever I want it w/o preventing my ability to get into bed.

Re: Co-rooming options

I have used a cradle in the past, but hated getting up and grabbing baby and putting baby back even when next to the bed you have to sit up put your feet someplace so you dont fall over and grab baby...

then i used a mini cosleepr, loved this! I borrowed it tho. So this time i bought a full sized arms reach cosleeper to have baby next to me flush w/ the bed! Will be so nice! (my 2yo will be usuing the crib still...soo...thats not an options)

I was looking at the arms reach co-sleeper or anything similar. Anyone use these? Like them? Other ideas?
I used one with my daughter and LOVED it...I'm definitely going that route again

I did this with my first (my son) but after using the co sleeper with my daughter I recommend the co sleeper. Takes up a lot less room and I could move it into the living room whenever I wanted

Thanks mamas for all the suggestions!

There are a few arms reach co-sleepers on our local Craigslist that I am going to check out!
