Can the baby sleep in a playard next to my bed for the first couple of weeks? I want to get him sleeping in his crib ASAP so I hope that it would not be for more than a month but his room is upstairs and mine is downstairs (there is no way around this unfortunately). It seems like such a waste to have a crib, a playard and a cradle. Plus, the cribs have soft sides (not mesh sides like the playard) so it seems that airflow would not be great (SIDS paranoia).
What do you all plan to do? (I do not plan to do any "co-sleeping", I just want to keep the baby near me for a short time while I am very sore and getting used to my new sleepless schedule)
