    We are currently in a 1 bedroom loft and are planning on moving when baby is 3-4 months old, or when baby is 10 months old (depending!).  We thought about having an arm’s reach co-sleeper next to my bed, but I am really anti-“buying a bunch of stuff.”  So, I am going with a really high quality crib that is made for small spaces. 

    I am not going to sugar coat though- I am very against having a baby IN an actual adult bed.  I think the co-sleeper is much safer!  I am judgemental about parents that put baby in the actual bed (and have only heard of this: A. Online and B. because babies get killed that way- there were several killed in my state that way recently).

    I like your idea about the getting ready room.  Our bathroom and bedroom is upstairs too- and I am not super excited about going up and down with baby.

    I want to know too! We have a small apartment, and having something like that might help!

    We wanted to have him sleep in our bedroom at first, and have an Arm’s Reach co-sleeper, but DS refused to sleep in it. Really he refused to sleep anywhere but in my arms. The first night or two we were home he slept in my arms while I dozed in a recliner. Within a week he was in the bed with us. Not something I planned, but it was the only way we got any sleep. DS is 5.5 months now and sleeps most of the night in a PnP in our room, but only after we started sleep training. 

    In theory I loved the idea of the co-sleeper; in practice it didn’t work for us.

    I didn’t answer the poll because I don’t have a baby yet. But I’d be curious to know others’ experience as well. I have a good friend who loved her co-sleeper and we’d definetly consider one if/when we have a wee one.

    I definitely want one. It seems much easier to breastfeed and check on the baby just to soothe. I also read that it decreases the risk of SIDS. Seems much safer than in our actual bed.

    I didn’t vote because I’m still pregnant.  A friend of mine is letting me borrow hers when our baby comes in June.  Her son is 10 months old, and she loved it.
