Ainslie325:Depends on the family. I like having a sleeping/changing station on the first floor as it prevents my having to go upstairs to the nursery every time my son needs a diaper change.
Also, I had a c section so it was really helpful that first few weeks to not have to keep going up stairs.
We haven't had our baby yet, but the first thing we bought was a pnp. I was on craigslist just after finding out we were expecting and saw a nearly new pnp with the changing station for $20!
Our house is TINY and we don't have the money to rent anything bigger so our master bedroom is going to be the nursery as well. and the pnp fits great in a little nook in our bedroom. We're hoping it's going to work out for us =)
Our son slept in his Pack-N-Play in our room until he moved into his own room.
Now we keep it in our living area. He naps there a lot, and it's nice to have a safe place to contain him if I need to step away for a few minutes. We keep ours near the front door and will set him in there while we're packing/unpacking the car to go places.
We also use it when we travel.
I'll probably get a second one for baby number two.
