I think if you are alright with having the baby sleep in the same room as you, then it is do-able, but eventually you are also going to have to think about what you will need for the baby, because you say you are already cramped on space. You will need somewhere for her/his clothes. A place for toys, trust me they can take up space, espically if you have relatives who will splurge on a first birthday or something. My older brother has a son, and my mother went crazy for his first birthday, my brother and his wife, had to turn one of their guest bedrooms into a play room for him because he got so many toys. He isn’t spoiled by any means, but he does have a lot of toys from his birthdays. I mean they still have a guest bedroom, but I’m just saying. My mom raised me and my older brother in a one bedroom apartment for a little, my father was in the navy, so we didn’t see him a lot. She actually slept on the couch and had us share room when I got older. (It was a pull out couch.) When I was a baby, she had me in a bassinet in the living room at night, so my older brother could sleep in his room without hearing me cry when I was a baby. She kept some of our toys in the the living room, and the rest of them stayed in my older brothers room, when I got older and it was time for me to be taken out of the crib, my mom got bunk beds, and I slept on the bottom, because I was still little, and my older brother slept on the top. If we had company over, the little bit of toys out in the living room got put in our bedroom, and two or three toys were left out for us to play with when people were over. When my mom got pregnant with my little brother, we moved into a three bedroom apartment. She kept my little brother in her room till he was old enough to be taken out of the crib, and me and my older brother each had our own rooms. Then me and my younger brother shared a room, and then when I got older, my little brother and big brother shared a room. When my dad got out of the navy we moved to PA and bought our first house. We all had our own bedrooms. There were 3 bedrooms upstairs. My mom and dad’s room. (Master) Mine. and my little brother’s room, and then there was a family room, a computer room, and laundry room, and another bedroom downstairs, which was my older brother’s room. We moved here when I was 10, so it took my parents 14 years to finally buy a house, where we all had our own bedrooms.
Sorry that was so long, haha, just wanted to give you a prespective of a one bedroom apartment. I mean you are only having one child, so it’s not as bad as me and brothers, haha, but it can get cramped, and don’t get me wrong I had a good childhood, but I did wish for my own space a lot. If I were you, I would look for a 2 bedroom apartment. Eventually your child is going to get too big for the crib. (I think my brother switched my nephew to a bed at a little after he turned 2. He was starting to try and climb out of the crib) and I don’t know if you would be okay with having a toddler bed in your bedroom or not, plus all other things. My mom always told me that she loved us to death, but she was glad when she got a room all to her self again, with no crib in it, toys, baby clothes, etc, haha. Plus it can get hard to be intimate with your SO too, I would think. So again if I were you I would look for a 2 bedroom. I think it would make it a lot easier for you.
