Probably her crib. Her room is right next to ours.
Rock N Play! It ended up being our favorite baby gear item with DD, so we plan to use it again. I love that it keeps them elevated (for several reasons) and all babies seem to love them as well!
I'm surprised by how many are going straight to the crib! I guess not everyone is super paranoid like we are. DD slept in the Rock n Play or PnP in our room until she was about 9 months old! Her room is upstairs and ours is downstairs though, so I guess that makes a little bit of difference.
We do plan to move this baby sooner, but I can't imagine putting him in a different room right off the bat. Plus, it's convenient to have them in your room when you're getting up every 1.5-2 hours. Eek.
I didn't really know what to do and was on the fence for a while about putting LO in the crib in their nursery right away.
Everyone I talked to who has babies had different opinions...
We have decided to use a moses basket (with stand) in our room for the first few months.
My family has an antique cradle that everyone has used for their LO's... going back to 1882. (And yes, I've measure the slats to know they are still up to safety standards!)
DD slept in it for the first five weeks, when we transitioned her to the crib. We'll do the same probably with DS. Then the cradle will be sent to my sister's house, since she is expecting 9 weeks after me.
I'm a SS this time around...we have an antique "crib" that was hand-carved by my H's great great grandfather...4 generations have slept in this "crib" (which is so small it's more the size of a bassinet), including DH and his brother. We'll use that next to the bed until he outgrows it, and then it's off to actually make use of his crib and room.
We got an Arms Reach co-sleeper passed down from a family member who looooooved theirs (and used it with their youngest until she was 19!!!! months old). We plan to have baby in there for the first 6 months or so. If the Arms Reach hadn't been passed down, baby would've slept in the PnP for the first 6 months or so. Our nursery is super close to our room, but I have always known I'd want to co-sleep.
