Here is what our montessori-ish room looks like-I have a lot of work to do to get it to look like this again:)<br>
The changing table is what you see closest to the door. We also cosleep, but around 5 mos or so, we start putting the baby down in her room first, and just get her when she wakes the 1st time and bring her to our bed. It has worked well for us as they eventually sleep by themselves without a huge adjustment. Hopefully, this same set up will go well with twins.

<p>We're freaking out a little bit, as we're in a two bedroom. We would LOVE to move, but currently all rentals are being taken up by college students *grumble* <img alt=":irked" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="">  And they won't be gone until I'm about due. Even if it's close to my due date, I would love to move. Two bedrooms and 4 kids is just a no-go. My oldest needs his space and my daughter needs space from my oldest.</p>

Becky Wheeler, I'm in the same boat. My three kids and I live in a small two bedroom apartment. No idea when moving will be an option. Baby girl will sleep with me, but she doesn't really get to have a space. <img alt="greensad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"> it bums me out, but we'll manage.

<p>We have a two bedroom but the second bedroom is reserved as my home office (I work from home 4 days a week). My baby boy will not have his own space but it doesn't bother me. Baby's just want to be near us anyways... We are also adding a twin bed that will be his to our bed, so we will have plenty of bed space... It will be an adjustment for <em>us</em> sharing our space with the baby.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I figure by the time he is 3+ it would be nice for him to have his own space for doing pre-school activities and to just run/jump around inside. We're looking to sell this house and buy a 3 bedroom and our forever home as soon as possible. It may not happen this summer but I really hope next summer.  I'll probably put my office in a partially finished basement (we have no basement now). Then we'll add our last addition to the family :)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also think there can be a lot of benefits to siblings sharing a room especially at a young age. So the plan is we will have two and they will share a room until one of them hits pre-teen...and we will use the other room for play until then.</p>

<p>Only with my first did we do a nursery of any kind.  After I became a mom and found cosleeping, the nursery idea went out the window.  We sold our crib after the 2nd baby and still never used it.  Now on #5, still no plans to do anything special for a baby space.  I wouldn't know what to do if little one wasn't right with me all the time.  Plus my babies want to be no where else but with me either, so that works out.  The space for our baby is in my bed or on my chest or back.  <img alt=":love" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/love.gif" style=""></p>

I'm also big on cosleeping so we don't need a crib. I'm more worried about what I'm gonna do with this little girl's stuff! I saw a thing on Pinterest where someone put their baby's clothes into a shoe organizer that hangs on the back of the closet door. I'm probably going to need to do something like that. And i guess something similar for diapers. I don't know yet! I'm sure hoping to get a bigger place soon. Then at least I can put the baby's things in my daughter's room.

<p>Yeah we're lucky that my daughters closet organizer will have lots of room for baby's new stuff, even though we'll need to do some moving around. And the crib will be sidecarred to our bed. It's just setting up "areas" for things like the changepad and cloth diapers, etc. And I'll still get to pick up nice sheets and a blanket for the crib :) </p>
<p> </p>
<p>This house is a 3 bedroom, but the third is in the basement... so I don't know how old I'd feel comfortable letting my daughter sleep down there alone. I'd be worried that she'd sleepily try to come see us and trip on the stairs. Maybe 5? that's 2.5 years after this babe will be born. Seems like forever away. </p>

<p>Since we know we won't need to use a space for the new addition, just like our youngest when he was born, it's not that bad for me. It would just be a waste for us in the long run to try to CREATE a space when we know baby will be with us for at least the first year. But the older two need space. When we get a 3 bedroom, it'll go like this. Michael and Levi together, as they're both boys and Casey having her own room until Misty-Day is old enough to be in her own bed. And they can all have their own sides of their rooms that will be specially for them. What they like, have their names on their side of their room, etc.</p>

<p>We have a 100+yr old house -- which has shockingly large closets for it's age, but they are weird shapes, so only a tiny portion of each closet is actually easily accessed. I can fit 3 years of outgrown or 'to grow into' clothing in each child's closet along with all their current stuff that hangs -- but I can't get to it daily.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The babes will share space with DD -- not for sleeping, but for diapers and storage, if we are still in this house when they arrive. If we are in a new house, they'll have their own room, but not sleep in it full time. We need to figure out some sort of storage system that works for having 3 children's clothing in the space that DD currently uses -- at the very least this is one more dresser with better drawers, more likely it's a dresser for the babes and a separate dresser for DD. One of which has a low enough top to double as a change table. I'm not sure yet, but should get to work on figuring it out! Right now the majority of the baby stuff is in a plastic set of drawers blocking the door to my balcony - since the balcony is covered in snow, it's not being used anyway.</p>

I love the idea of a hanging shoe organizer @Mozado! Right now, my biggest concern is where to put baby clothes and cloth diapers- I think i could squeeze one of those hanging organizers into my closet. Baby will be sleeping with us for the first two years or so, but I may put a crib beside the bed (at the same level) so we all have a little more space. I get stressed thinking about what to do once the babe is ready for his/her own bed/room- but that's a good three years away, so we'll figure it out when we get there!

<p>We live in a 3 bedroom at the moment, 2 bedrooms upstair and 1 bedroom downstairs that is the guest room/exercise room at the moment. Our bedroom upstairs is where the babe will be for the first 6 months at least- my first, so I have no idea what to expect, but hope to cosleep. Not sure yet what would be best: cosleeper, bassinet, cradle or what. My mom has a pack and play from the other grandkids to give me- might just try to use that by the side of the bed, and I'll probably end up with him in the bed with us most of the time (we have a queen, not huge, but not undoable) The room across the hall is slated to be the baby's room eventually. Right now, it is FULL of my hubby's crap, I mean, MOMENTOS :p Working on getting him to clean it out, so I can fix the baseboard heaters (half have no covers) and paint it from the pea green it is at the moment. Mom has my old chiffarobe from when I was a kid, so I'll be bringing that home- has a set of drawers with a closet on one side, could be used for diaper storage and blankets etc. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyone have opinions on the convertible cribs/toddler/twin beds? Are they worth the cost? Since I hope to cosleep, I feel like I might not end up using the crib much, might be a waste. In any case, I'm not putting anything like a crib or sleeper on the registry, since I'm still not sure what I should or will use. I guess I have that first time mama worry about rolling over on the babe while sleeping. I tend to bundle myself up in blankets and I feel like hubby and me take up most of the bed already. I guess you make it work? But maybe the pack and play by the side of the bed would be enough at the start, and then I can get something different if it doesn't work well. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Another awesome freebie I scored from a coworker: a glider! So far, I've been blessed with awesome generous friends and family :)</p>

<p>Personally I decided that a twin bed made the most sense for us. It will fit perfect next to ours and up against the wall then I'm going to use foam rails up against the wall and the headboard to prevent any chance of entrapment. I figure this way this bed can be his forever instead of buying a crib... and side caring it then buying a twin later. I would probably feel differently if I couldn't put the bed against the wall. We are going to build a platform that the twin will sit on so the height matches perfectly our bed. When the baby gets older (I figure around 1 yr old) I am going to drop his bed down a 3-6 inches to avoid getting kicked and intruding on my bed space but still have the ability to easily comfort. It will also be his first step to his own room one day. Right now I'd like to keep him with us until our future 2nd child is two years to help with the sibling rivalry... He'll just get moved next to my husband instead and new baby will be next to me like he was (we'd transition this before the baby was born)... then when the 2nd is older I'll move both kids into the same room together where they can cosleep together for a little while and then we will bunk them. Of course the plans are subject to change based on how cosleeping goes for everyone. If worse comes to worse I can always buy a crib later and save the twin for when he's older..so I know there will be no "waiste".</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here is what we are using to "merge" the twin bed with ours and create a safe and comfortable sleeping arrangement for all.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here are the foam side rails without the nasty chemicals:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FHonest-Foam-24-Inch-Wedge%2Fdp%2FB00B72JOQQ%2Fref%3Dbr_it_dp_o_nS_nC%3Fie%3DUTF8%26colid%3D2B9Y4B6BRP1IH%26coliid%3DI2L5N2KMESTU9E" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Honest-Foam-24-Inch-Wedge/dp/B00B72JOQQ/ref=br_it_dp_o_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2B9Y4B6BRP1IH&coliid=I2L5N2KMESTU9E</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>This shows how they work...with instructions for infants. But since it's marketed as bed rails here it has the nasty fire retardant:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FMagic-Bumpers-Portable-Child-Safety%2Fdp%2FB003KFCV6S%2Fref%3Daag_m_pw_dp%3Fie%3DUTF8%26m%3DA1UIHBKCLF6G90" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Bumpers-Portable-Child-Safety/dp/B003KFCV6S/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A1UIHBKCLF6G90</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>This is what I'm going to use to safely bridge the beds:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fdp%2FB0053WHBSO%2Fref%3Dwl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl%3F_encoding%3DUTF8%26colid%3D1W25JKDBAB8S9%26coliid%3DI1PPEDLAVVURCQ" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0053WHBSO/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1W25JKDBAB8S9&coliid=I1PPEDLAVVURCQ</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>We'll also be using some tightners to make sure the bed's stay together although with this setup I highly doubt they will budge.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here is how to side-car a crib.</p>
<p><a href="http://www.drmomma.org/2010/01/turn-your-crib-into-cosleeper.html" target="_blank">http://www.drmomma.org/2010/01/turn-your-crib-into-cosleeper.html</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I don't think it makes any sense to buy one of these co-sleepers personally. They only work for 4 months and are about $200... where a crib is not much more than that and will last a long time... and you can safely sidecar it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>If you still are not sure about cosleeping safety especially during the early months... I recommend looking at something like this:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fdp%2FB005ASKQ42%2Fref%3Dwl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl%3F_encoding%3DUTF8%26colid%3D1W25JKDBAB8S9%26coliid%3DI1UZFTYABKK6FY" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005ASKQ42/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1W25JKDBAB8S9&coliid=I1UZFTYABKK6FY</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I would use that over a bassinet any day..<span style="line-height:1.5em;">I found one used for $25 which we're goi</span><span style="line-height:1.5em;">ng to use during our summer camping and traveling for safe cosleeping.</span></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I also would skew away from the bassinet/pack and play idea because now you have to get out of bed and reach down to get baby... Having the baby close to you will help make breastfeeding easier, as well as regulate breathing/blood pressure etc for the baby...other countries that routinely co-sleep have much lower SIDs rates than us. You must make sure that you are co-sleeping safely. That means no drugs, safe sleeping arrangements (including keeping blankets/pillows away from baby..keep the blanket only up to your waiste), and not advised to be next to your husband... read about safe co-sleeping. Most co-sleeping deaths happen with parents that do not regularly co-sleep but decided to take the baby into bed or onto couch (NO COUCH cosleeping!!)_ because of an over-tired parent, cranky or sick baby.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>In addition, just for peace of mind I want to get this:</p>
<p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FSnuza-Portable-Baby-Movement-Monitor%2Fdp%2FB002WLGV08%2Fref%3Dbr_it_dp_o_nS_nC%3Fie%3DUTF8%26colid%3D2B9Y4B6BRP1IH%26coliid%3DI3U5ZFQDQEKMZ5" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/Snuza-Portable-Baby-Movement-Monitor/dp/B002WLGV08/ref=br_it_dp_o_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2B9Y4B6BRP1IH&coliid=I3U5ZFQDQEKMZ5</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>I love it because you can use it for any sleeping situation. Whether or not the baby is right next to you or in the crib in the next room.</p>

<p>I've only had one babe to 'test out' things, but here's my take- with our first, I had a pack and play with the bassinet in it, that I pushed up against the bed, and planned to use that until she outgrew it (I think 15lbs) and then switch her into her crib. I loved the IDEA of cosleeping, but did not feel safe at all about my DH and I in the bed with a newborn. He's a very spread out, heavy sleeper, and I already felt squished in the bed. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fast forward, she was born- she hated the bassinet. Would only sleep on one of us. So we spent a couple weeks sleeping sitting up in bed with her on our chests, and then taking her back to the bassinet. But because the bassinet was at a different height, and I was very sore due to tearing from the birth and residiual SPD. So it actually would have been easier to get out of bed completely and walk her across the room, than it was to try to lean over and gently place her in the pack and play bassinet. I hated it. But I was also so sleep deprived I was terrified of cosleeping with her. It did get easier eventually, she slept more in the bassinet, and I got better at "leaning" her into it. Plus she got bigger and I got slightly less sleep deprived, and she ended up in the bed with us more and more. Around 4 months we started putting her to sleep in the crib in her room, and then bringing her into bed with us towards morning. cue more exhaustion. when she woke up, I had to walk into her room and nurse in the rocker, and then once she was in bed, I didn't sleep as soundly because I was nervous.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Finalllllllly around 10 months we started bringing her into our bed full time again, right from the start of the night, and I finally felt confident with her in the bed, and we all slept a lot better. But it was a hard road to get there, and I wished we'd had more/better options earlier on. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>THIS time, we're sidecarring a crib to our bed, and then putting the pack and play in our basement for naps (we have a living area and my daughters play area down there). We didn't sidecar the crib last time for two reasons- a/ I could see no way of it fitting properly and us still being able to move around the room. b/ we didn't know what to do with naps then, if we didn't have a 'real' crib.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>But... I've given in to the idea of hvaing no space in our room. It seems very worth it this time, to be able to have the baby with us, but not in our bed, so I'm not constantly worried about hurting him/her, especially when I'm so exhausted. My daughter was a ridiculous sleeper, and I was deliriously sleep deprived even several months after her birth. Not having to get out of bed, or bend and twist funny to get baby into their space-- totally worth it. I love being able to snuggle with baby, and watch them, and smell them, but then I also need my space.   Also, I'm not as worried for naps anymore, because I've seen how little my daughter actually moves around, and also how early she learned to get down safely from the bed. In her 2+ years, she's never fallen out of bed that I can remember, and we don't have a bed rail on either side. Plus, I'll have the pnp downtstairs, where we'll probably be for a lot of naps. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sooooo lol yes, my vote is sidecar a crib! I am so excited about the prospect of it this time, as it really does seem like the perfect answer to all our problems. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>RE: Cribs. We have a convertible that goes from crib to toddler bed. We transitioned it from crib to bed around 18 months I think, and she's done fantastic with it, especially since she starts the night in her bed now and then comes in with us, it's been nice that she can climb out and walk into our room without us having to go get her. We're using the same crib for the sidecarring, but I have no real idea when we'll switch from a sidecar arrangement, but we'll probably go right into the toddler bed, once we do.   Our second bedroom doesn't have room for a double bed, so for us, that part wouldn't be worth it. </p>

<p>haha it alerted me that someone posted while I was typing my response. Yes! Totally the issue for us. The height difference just did not work at all. In a different room as a napper, great. But not as a substitute cosleeper/sidecar, which I intended it to be.  Especially since my babe was up every hour for the first... ermm probably 9 months? </p>

<p>As for naps...once he's crawling and if there is a chance he could drop off the foot of the bed (note putting mattresses on the floor is NOT an option DH will not go for it) I'm going to look into two options.. One is there will be a 2ft space at the bottom of that twin bed, so I might make a pillow drop off on a platform, and then to the floor so it's 2 short drops. The second idea I have is to just put him on a cot. Of course I also considered getting a pack & play but I think I'll only go that way if we really need it. Right now I dont see the need for one. In the early months we could use the cosleeper thing that I linked before but I agree that the baby is unlikely to move so I dont see much of a risk at this age.</p>

<p>Awesome, thanks Activia for the links and tips, and to onetwoten for the info.  I definitely know the dangers to stay away from, and have done a good amount of research, and know that I want to cosleep- just trying to figure out what would work the best, and still having those first time mama nerves and feeling like I don't want to spend all kinds of money on something I won't end up using :p  I hadn't seen the sidecaring of a crib before, that's pretty cool! I think maybe we'll try to make that happen- it would create more space, and be easier to bring the babe in for breastfeeding. Seems like putting the money out for a convertible crib would be worth it, if we plan to do that and then have it used as a toddler/twin bed later. Kinda wishing we had a king mattress at this point- might make fitting on one mattress more doable :) Thanks for the tips. Those side bumpers seem pretty nifty too! </p>

<p>I thought I'd posted it, but this is the idea I'm going for with the sidecarred crib. I want something that kiiiind of blends into the room. We're planning on somewhat matching the crib sheet/cribskirt to our bedding, so grey/ midnight blue, regardless of sex. Our crib is white. I've actually got almost these exact sheets on my amazon registry. Our crib will be squished in between our bed and the wall though, def not enough space to have it not jammed in there. Oh, and I love how flush the crib mattress sits with their mattress. by my calculations, I should be able to get this by putting a second crib mattress underneath our good mattress.  : </p>

<p>I really wish a king size bed was in our cards too, but both price and space wise, it isn't. I'm not sure we could get a kind bed actually into our house... </p>

Yeah, a king size box spring- no way that would fit up our stairway- even if it were a split, I think we'd end up ripping up the walks to get it in! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

<p>You can get two twin box-springs instead and they do have these foam mattresses that fold really easily so you can squeeze them up stairs... However, foam really takes awhile to off-gas and personally I wouldnt want to be off-gass'ing it while pregnant or with a newborn.</p>
