I have been thinking about sleeping solutions for when bubs arrives and have had an idea - would appreciate anyones thoughts/advice on this. Please feel free to tell me if I am insane! Originally we were going to buy a cotbed with cot divider to make it smaller and swaddle bubs for the first while then move the divider to make it gradually bigger. That was going to be in our bedroom until he was ready to go into the nursery. For downstairs we were going to use the carrycot that fits on top of our Britax B-smart pushchair. Then we decided against all of the above and thought - why not buy a nice travel cot and upgrade the mattress to the same quality you would have in a cot. We could have the travel cot upstairs at night and then take downstairs for during the day. That way, bubs always gets to sleep in the same bed. I have seen some nifty ones that aren't too heavy so I don't think it would be too much hassle. DH works from home anyway so could do all the lifting and shifting. Have noticed ones like the Graco Contour Electra come with a raised bassinet portion as well as a changing table which seems to make sense. Ideally I would like to get one that lasts until a child is 2 years at least... I am unusually against moses baskets for some reason and worry the cats might knock it over so that is not a solution. I would consider a swinging crib...:shrug; Thoughts? Opinions? Sighs of disbelief?
