DS is a little over 9 months, and we have coslept from the beginning. This is no longer working for us for a variety of reasons, and it is time to try something else.
I need help figuring out what to buy. Space (we have a 1 bedroom) and money are tight.
We have a mini cosleeper that DS never used. He can't transition to that now because he can pull himself up to a standing position.
What would you recommend for a smaller space and on a budget? I want something that DS will like, something that will fit in our room, and something that he can stay in for a while.
I was thinking about a portable/mini crib. How quickly do LOs outgrow those, though? Our guy is already 25 lbs.
Maybe a pack and play? He sleeps in one of these at daycare so I know he likes it. But they seem so large. And is it difficult to put your babe to sleep in it since the floor is so low? I'm just thinking of me trying to get him to sleep in it and straining to reach down and rub his back...
I have considered a regular size crib. Don't know if we could fit it, but it would be nice to get a convertible one, as that will take him to a bed.
I've also heard that some mamas put their wee ones in cots at this age? Is that something anyone's done?
Also, have I thought about putting the bed on the floor with another mattress adjacent? Yep. But, unfortunately, we do no have room for that. :\
