    Hi,

    I am just wondering what everyone has done after their baby has outgrown the moses basket? I live in a house and have used the moses basket for downstairs. My ds has a crib in our room and a cot in his nursery. I am thinking of getting a travel cot for downstairs now that my ds has outgrown his moses basket. My thinking is that I can use the bassinet for day time naps and then use it as a play pen when he can sit up. Should I do this or is this just a waste of money? What have you all done?

    Sorry I have to dash is DS is crying!!!

    Thanks

    My LO went into cotbed at 5 weeks, I dont have anything downstairs as he likes to play on his mat etc. He does nap either in his swing or in his cot. xx

    When did your LO outgrow the moses basket? I swear i must have the biggest basket in the world, my 6month old's still in hers!! Part of her cotbed had to be sent back as the wood had chipped so she can't go in that yet until a new part returns and as she's only just started rolling over (OH found her on her stomach in the moses yesterday!) she's now in the basket on the floor :dohh: shes huge aswell :haha:

    We put LO into her cot after the moses basket. And right now she naps wherever we can get her to, on me, on the sofa, on the playnest, or in the cot if we're really struggling.

    Our LO sleeps in our room at night. Early days he was sleeping in a bassinette. But I noticed at 2 months he was becoming more active and i feared him rocking the bassinette over. I know I'm a little much sometimes....so we moved the bassinette out of our room, and he sleeps in a playpen (in the top part) now, beside our bed.

    During the day he does his naps from his room in his crib.

    Once i start putting LO upstairs at night to settle by himself (he is showing signs to be ready so will be in the next week or so arghhh) then i will get rid of the moses basket downstairs and he will take his naps upstairs during the day in his baby nest.
