Isn't the baby next to your bed in a bassinet, cradle etc the same as co-sleeping (I thought it was), so I did not answer the poll. Baby will be next to us in a level co-sleeper Dh made & of course in bed when feeding.
Freethinking Earth-mama of five.
Most likely I'll just wear the baby or plop it on the couch and hope a dog or my daughter doesn't step on it. My daughter slept on the couch for naps and evenings a lot and never got stepped on, so hopefully that will be true for this next one too.

Aagh I'm so conflicted about this one. Part of me would love to just co-sleep all the time and assume it will be fine, the rest of me is ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED about rolling over onto her, pushing her out...no matter what people say, I am a fidgety sleeper, so is my boyfriend, and we have both done each other injuries in our sleep before. Exposing a newborn to that just seems silly. Plus I worry about opportunity for snuggling etc with DP...I like naked frisky hugging...
We have a crib, second hand and given to us by a friend so no outlay there. We haven't put it up yet, and I'm still debating whether when we do it should be as a sidecar, or just very close to the bed. She will be in our room for the forseeable future, that's definite. I haven't discussed sidecarring with DP yet, not sure how he'll feel about it. Maybe we should just put it up seperately, so that we can either have her in with us, or if that's not working out, she can be in a seperate bed but close by.
Yep, I totally remember with my first having a cousin who had a baby six days after me, and we were all on a family reunion in a hotel. Her toddler slept horribly because it wasn't home, they were exhausted by the second day, all of them. My toddler slept great, because all he ever needed was to be snuggled next to mom to sleep, because that's how it was at home.
