so i was chatting with my mil yesterday and she asked what i was going to have the baby sleep in downstairs, say during the day. my initial thought was that the baby will sleep upstairs in the pnp bassinet set up in our bedroom, for the better part of the time (at least the first few months and then transfer to crib). she alluded that this may be a hassle going up and down stairs, etc., and thought that i should think about getting a bassinet/cradle for the first floor. we live in an open floor plan townhome and although i have zero clue what to expect, i'm thinking this would make it difficult for the baby to rest peacefully. my plan is to continue during the day per usual and not be overly quiet (we have two dogs so i'm sure they'll help), and i also don't want my house taken over by baby gear- family room, that is...i want to remain open-minded, but this thought never crossed my mind. so, what are your thoughts on this- are you having a sleep set-up on both floors?
