Right now I am shopping for a perfect bed for the nursery. I am thinking either a futon or small day bed!
It will be used for night nursing so I can lay down and be comfortable. Then when the baby is sleeping for longer stretches I will sneak back into my room to snuggle with DH alone.
I can't co-sleep or bedshare in the family bed as I have a sleep disorder and not only that but DH works 7 days a week and we can't afford for him to miss work because he is tired (I stay at home full time). I have never seen the point in both of us being sleep deprived, so this seems like the best solution for our family.
I am sooo excited about it because with DD I was stuck on the couch with her (and it wasn't big enough to comfortably nurse lying down.. so I had to sit up and nurse her at night)...
Seems like I am not alone.. found a link that has some great pictures for bed in the nursery ideas:
