This is a sad question considering I've already done the whole cosleeping thing with DC #1. The thing is our house and lifestyle is a little different now and I'm having a hard time picturing things.
DH and I have a king sized bed (the mattress can't be put on the floor like we had with DC#1) and the baby will sleep there. But, I want to set the baby down a little more than I did with DC. She slept in the sling the entire time we weren't in bed...I don't think I can do that again. I also want to try to put the baby down at night before we go to bed so I can spend some time with DC and DH. AND, DC is in school so I imagine there will be mornings where we are up getting ready while the baby is sleeping.
Another big difference we have going this time around is that our house is bigger and has several floors. With DC we had a 2BR one level house. This house has the bedrooms on the second floor and the kitchen/living room on the first floor and when we eventually set up the baby's room we'll be putting a den/TV room on the 3rd floor. I imagine there will be times throughout the day where I'll be on a different floor from the sleeping baby.
So, I'm imagining where I'll put the baby to sleep once she/he can roll.
I suppose I can wrangle up a crib but that seems like a waste considering DC never got in it and we used it like a really bulky laundry basket. Maybe I can set up a nursery once the baby is mobile and just put a futon/twin mattress on the floor. I could also do just a small crib type pad/mattress that I move around the house.
What do you all do?
Of course, I may end up just slinging this baby for naps/early sleep too but I like to fantasize about all of these times I'm going to set this new baby down to sleep peacefully while I do all sorts of interesting things ;-)
