This LO will be in a bassinet in my room until Income Tax time next yr (so Marchish) unless I get a crib from one of the girls I work with. Still waiting for her to check her storage and make sure its all still there. Then she'll be in a crib in my room until either we move out of my moms or until I decide to put Cheyann and her in my room and me move into the tiny little room DD has now.

I would *like* to have something set up like I did with DD:
(assuming we have a 2 story house)
Bassinet downstairs- for naps when DD isn't home
Pack n play in our bedroom- for nighttime sleeping
Crib- naps during the day when DD is home and awake
My sister is bringing down her Moses basket. So baby will be in our room in that. Then when old enough will move in to crib in there own room. My last one was never in my room as there was not enough room for even a Moses basket, but her room was right next door so with doors open I could every move. As we are moving all the rooms are bigger so should be fine this time. Do need to get DD#2 a new bed as she is still in the cotbed. Again waiting until we move to buy her a big girl bed.
so confused what to do... currently DD starts by sleeping in her cot at night but somewhere along she climbs over me and in between me and DH .... now with LO I think it will be the cot but I don't know how I will manage DD....Maybe shift both father n daughter out for a bit ... to the other room....
Our youngest (Clara) was in her crib next to our bed the first year, we just moved her into the room adjoining ours recently. We did this because we have a very cold house and we couldn't stand having her in the next room when she was very small (she moves around a lot and the covers are all off). Lately though she's been crying around 3-4am and ends up between us so we just bought a king bed (we have a queen) as we are really needing the room. The plan is to put the queen bed in Clara's room so if she gets up in the middle of the night Dad can go there and cuddle with her. I'll put the pack n play next to our bed and use the bassinet feature for the new baby for the first 6 months. I think by the time this one is 6 months Clara can go to a big girl bed and we can put the baby in her crib.
DS will stay in the pack n play bassinet in our room for about 3 months. When it's time for me to go back to work, we'll transition him to his crib in the nursery.
