What is going to be your sleeping situation with baby? Are you co-sleeping? nursery with a crib? what are you all doing?
We have a co-sleeper and plan on using that until she's too big, then moving her to a crib in our room. I always thought I'd co-sleep with her actually in the bed with us, but we have a queen bed and my husband sleeps like an angry bear waking up a zillion times a night and I like to spread out... so I just don't see there being any room for baby.
I'm trying to convince my husband that we should get a king sized bed, it's hard enough just the two of us sharing a bed with my being pregnant and needing a pillow nest around me and tossing and turning and not being able to stand being touched- his sweaty butt is ALWAYS on mine and it drives me insane!!!!!!! he likes it though... but he's not the one being rubbed up on by a sweaty body. Do you have a king bed or a queen bed or what?? I really think a king bed will be a life changer for us... especially because my husband works and has to get up at 6am - it will be better to have a firmer nicer mattress with more space. Right now we have a generic memory foam one and it's really soft and IMO not safe for a baby because of that and the off-gassing- it still has the chemical smell a year later. I'd love to get an organic cotton/latex one but they're really expensive- but sleep is SO important and affects your whole quality of life- so I think it would be worth it, right?
and then later on when baby is like a year and up... a crib in the other room makes more sense to me because I do NOT want to be night-nursing past a year old.... I'll nurse her at night before sleep but I have friends with babies who have had the hardest time night weaning even at 2-3 years old their babies are pawing at them in the night to nurse- I know that would drive me crazy!!
