Nate is only 3 months old, but is already outgrowing his bassinet. We aren't ready to move him to a crib yet, so for now he will move into a pack n' play. We didn't really know how this would work before, his sleeping arrangement I mean, and next time we will definitely get something bigger for the baby (our current bassinet was a hand-me-down). This is what I'm thinking -
The Arm's Reach Mini Co-Sleeper -
It doesn't convert to a play yard like some other others, we don't need that feature because we already have a pack n' play.
But it's also still kind of small, so there is the full size co-sleeper (which does convert to a play yard so it's two things in one) -
But they just aren't pretty, so if you want your co-sleeper to be an attractive piece of furniture they also make them in a sleigh style from wood -
While the first two co-sleepers have weight restrictions of 30-50 lbs, this last one, because it's made of solid wood, holds up to 500 lbs. Obviously you aren't going to have a 500 lb baby, but it's nice to know it's so solid that an older child pulling on it or jumping wouldn't be able to break it.
