My DH and I are expecting our first child. I'm hoping some of you who have done this before will have some tips on nurseries. We are planning to practice most aspects of AP, including co-sleeping. So one of my questions is... do we really need a nursery? We have a small 3-bedroom house. The 2nd bedroom is a guest room, and the 3rd is currently the office (desks, computer, bookshelves.... junk). I would really like to keep a guest room. Making a nursery would probably meaning flip-flopping the rooms, selling DH's giant desk, and having a lot of bookshelves in the nursery. Is that all worth it?
I'm assuming with a newborn we wouldn't even use a nursery much. But I am wondering if a few months later, a separate nursery would be handy for an 8-month-old, 10-month-old, etc.
