I purchased a Humanity bed. As you can see I have no other children, so I don't really know how it will work yet. I've been meaning to ask my DDC if anyone has ever had one. I really like it so far, as it doubles as an awesome pregnancy pillow! Truthfully, I do find that it takes up some space, but I think that's because I'm using it as a preg pillow instead of a bedrail right now. I have also found that where I put my leg all the time (the middle) the pillow tends to lose it's plumpness. But you wash it, and it comes back. It is very expensive and my husband wanted to make one. I guess I probably should've listened to him, but knowing that it is all made 100% organically is nice. You could make one that way, but it would take some effort to find all the right materials.
Originally we wanted to get a co-sleeper, but one of my best friends got one for her baby a year ago and said it was one of the items that was a complete waste of money for them. She said she wound up never really using it past the first month, and even if she had (as you said) you can't use the co-sleeper past the 30 pound limit. We also measured things out, and found that our bedroom is really too small for a cosleeper. Our plan is to have the baby in bed with us, and we are also going to have a cradle beside the bed for extra.....I dunno....safe space for the baby. It's a family heirloom situation. We'll see how it goes. Good luck.
