For those who are co-sleeping Brooke Cumberland TTC since Oct 2013; 1 child; Wisconsin 420 posts

I want to co-sleep with the next baby because now that we moved, we actually have the room! With my first, she slept in her crib right away, but now that all the bedrooms are taken, I'd like to co-sleep for the first few months. However, I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on the best co-sleepers? Price isn't really a big deal, it's more of the use of the co-sleeper and if it was nice and convenient in that it stores diapers, wipes, etc. and is on wheels. I have found some that i think look nice, just not sure if they are the best.

Not sure- when we co-sleep he's in bed with me.
I would look at reviews on amazon. That's how I decide on everything to buy.

I'm watching this too because while I do sleep with my children in my bed we are kind of in a predicament with #2. Dd is 5 and sleeps in her own bed but ends up in our bed 5 nights a week probably. There's just enough room for SO me and a baby. Not a 5 yr old too. So I thought about getting one of those so when dd climbs in I can move baby to that and sleep closer to the ensue to be by her. Idk though. Where did u find those? Do they attach to the bed at all so thy don't roll away or separate?

We have the top one and we tried using it at first but she was not happy unless she was in the bed with me. But it feels nice and sturdy. It isn't always the easiest thing to put up and take down but it's okay. And it can have all the sides all the way up so you can take it when you travel if you need a sleeper/bassinet type thing that ISN'T attached to the bed.

Some I found do attach to the bed - I googled co-sleepers and went to images. Target and Walmart and Toys 'r Us have some. I don't want one that attaches though, I assume the wheel ones can lock though. I want one with wheels so if the baby is super fussy and needs to breast feed, I can wheel her out in the living room so I don't disturb DH while he sleeps.

A co-sleeper sounds like a good idea than for you :) I want to be closer to the next baby, I was always checking on DD anyways and felt I never got any sleep! lol

That's what I would have done without cosleeping. I couldn't only sleep
If I had one hand on her.

That is my sentiment exactly. I'm lazy once I'm in bed unless she is wet which is rare yay for 4 month old holding it through the night I don't get out of bed just plop the b**b out feed her once or twice and sleep till time for work!

LOL - i know, but I am such a light sleeper sometimes, and DH is such a horrible sleeper! He's been on medical leave since July 2011 and takes medication for his leg and pain so I hate waking him unless I need him. Sometimes he has insomnia or sleep apnea so it'd be nice to have wheels just incase I need it. But I'm hoping I can EBF and can just attach the baby to the b**b and continue sleeping :)

That's what we did. She just nursed at her leisure and I slept. Never even woke SO :)
