We're moving to a new (smaller-but-nicer) place just before the baby is born, and I can't find a crib that will fit in the room with our bed! We sleep in a queen bed and DH is quite large (he has to sleep kind of diagonally to fit on the bed) and we can't put the mattress on the floor (he has really bad allergies and the 'trial run' of mattress on the floor was a disaster). We can't afford a king sized bed.
I'm wondering if anyone has any brilliant ideas so that we can cosleep maybe at least some of the time? I was thinking of getting an Arm's Reach Cosleeper to start with, (until the baby is more mobile) then having the crib in the other room. We could start with putting the baby down in the crib at first then maybe take him/her to bed with us when he/she wakes for the first time, and when DH has hopefully stopped tossing and turning... but I'd like to have the baby next to me and I've heard that it's not safe to just push the bed against the wall or have a railing.
Has anyone else had this issue? I really want to have the baby in the room with us and I'm so disappointed that the side-car thing doesn't look like it will work, it seemed so perfect for our situation :(
