What to use for day time naps instead of Moses basket?
At the moment we have a Moses basket in our front room which we use for day time naps (when he naps lol!) and for sleeping at night with us when we're downstairs before bed. In our bedroom we have a crib for overnight sleeps. M still has plenty of space in his crib but I suspect will only last in his moses basket for next 3/4 weeks. We do have a cot bed in the nursery but logistically there isn't enough space in our room for it so can't bring the crib downstairs when he outgrows basket, which was my original thought.
What could we replace the Moses basket with to have downstairs? I thought about a travel cot but they are massive and wont fit in the space where the Moses basket and stand is, plus getting him in/out while he's so little would be terrible for my back. I thought about a travel cot that has a bassinett feature as they are obviously raised up but they say you should discontinue use of the bassinets bit once babies hit 3 months, so we'd only get a few extra weeks out of it which seems like a waste of money. The other option would be another crib, but they aren't exactly cheap (the one we have was end of line discontinued rock whet kiddicare closed their shops, so only cost 25 quid as opposed to the 60/70 they usually cost)
we could have nothing to replace it but I'm really keen for him to have something decent to sleep in as he often goes down from 8pm-midnight so it's not very practical for him to sleep on one of us or in something like bouncer for such a long period......and I'm not prepared to put him to bed in crib in our room while we're downstairs at night coz of SIDS guidelines
