I BF my babies, but I'm a heavy sleeper, so I find it pertinent to have a cosleeper (the kind that's a bassinet that attaches to the side of my bed). Once my little one is no longer needing to nurse every 2-4 hours throughout the night, I turn it into just a bassinet because I'm able to get more sleep and just feed baby once a night and put them back down more easily. At 4-6 months old, all of my babies were ready to leave my room (sleeping through the night most of the time), so I put them in the nursery in a crib. I do think a baby needs a crib to sleep in at around 6 months old, but that's my opinion.

What's a pack'n'play? Is it like a travel cot?

We were going to get a co-sleeper bassinet as I want to be able to slide baby into bed with me without getting up / out (post-caesarean), but they're soooo expensive and only last around 6 months, so I've now decided to get a normal cot with a base that starts off higher up (around bed height) so I can remove one side and push it up against the bed and make my own co-sleeper! :-)

That's a great idea
A pack and play is something your new born can sleep in and some come with a changer. Once your baby is older and can stand to play on its own it's a safe spot to put them. They fold up small so you can take it with you! A lot of them have an infant level insert aswell

I have a crib and a bassinet. I will not co sleep because I do not have a safe mattress (4 inch super soft foam) and I don't like having anything in my bed (like, my dogs sleeping on the bed bothers me). I have the bassinet to keep her in the room with me for a while but I have a feeling I will transition her to her own room sooner rather than later. I am up all night to pee, I have a bladder condition. We have three dogs sleeping in with us...it's kind of disruptive. I don't know, we will see. I may get a pack and play at the consignment sale in a few weeks just to have it. I managed to get most of this stuff second hand so was cheap and if I don't use it it's not a huge loss.

Just Googled these pack 'n' plays and they look awesome! Great prices, too. The napper station looks quite small though so I'm guesing up to around 3 months? How long would you let a baby sleep in the top flat area (the raised level large rectangular area)?

I am planning on having a pack n play in my room and having the baby sleep there for around 3 months. I am not comfortable with co sleeping as me and my husband tend to roll a lot and we have a dog that sleeps with us. I then plan to transition to a crib. I am only able to take up to 12 weeks of maternity leave and when I go back to work the baby will be in the daycare where they sleep in cribs. So ideally I would like my child to be used to a crib. It might be worth it to get a crib just so you have one just in case.

We did a bassinet in our room until she was approximately 3 months. At that point our movement was starting to wake her up so we moved her to the crib. There was zero problem with transition and, in fact, I actually think she preferred the crib as she's an active sleeper and there was a lot more room for her to move around. Now she sleeps and naps in her crib.

My sister, on the other hand, co-slept and literally never used her gorgeous crib once. So it totally depends on your plans.

I have a queen size bed but i feel like there wouldnt be enough room to co sleep. We're active sleepers so id be terrified of squishing her or something.
I believe with the pack and play level inserts its good up to 15 pounds? I might have to double check on that. With the change table attachment i only plan on using it for the first 3 months if its up. I'm completely fine with just using a changing pad on the bed unless i cave and get the changing foam part to go on my dresser.

I think i'll probably just use a crib for sleeping unless i find a really good priced bassinet. I'm not sure how i feel about buying things second hand..i worry too much about germs and where its coming from lol

You'll need a crib eventually so just getting one to start is the cheapest option. If you want to have baby have sleep options around the house/room share temporarily with you, you can get a bassinet/pack 'n play. The pack 'n play sounds useful to me regardless so I'm considering just getting one myself. (used though)
