We'll be doing a combo of baby right in the bed with us and have a moses basket on a stand if needed. Does anyone have a similar combo, and if so, how did you feng shui the furniture in your room so that it worked for you?

Wish I could help, but we just have a big king mattress with foam bumpers on the side, and we're all in bed together.  From L to R, it's like this:  18mo, mama, daddy, 4yo. 

 

Best of luck finding an arrangement that works for your family!  There are so many possibilities.

I wish we'd bought a king-sized bed! Couldn't afford it at the time though, so settled for a queen, little did we know would be parents before the mattress was even paid for ;) I guess that is important to mention too: QUEEN-sized bed, and a 6'4" man who sleeps rather diagonally ;)

We have the Sniglar crib from IKEA sidecarred to my side of the bed. So the crib is up against the wall and then our queen mattress is pushed up against the crib. DD spends some time in her crib and some time in the big bed.
