We have a pack n play that we used with Riley but I think I want another option for the new baby to sleep in. Which would you get? Paul's parents said they would buy us one big thing for the baby so that will help.

I voted for both. That way during the night baby can sleep next to you and during the day he could sleep in the living room with you.

Does your pack and play have a bassinette part to use similar to the cosleeper?

What's the difference between the FP one and a swing (which can be used stationary) for downstairs?

What I like about the FP one is that it is at an angle for sleeping so for a kid who might have reflux it might be nice and it is raised so not so low like a bouncer. We will have a swing too, so I guess maybe I don't really need it. Luckily we don't have to buy the swing, my sister is lending us hers like she did the last time.

I voted for the rocker sleeper, that way you'll have an option for whether the baby likes to sleep flat (pack-and-play) or at an incline (sleeper). Since the sleeper looks like it's easily portable, it would be easy enough to move from room to room while Baby sleeps or whatever.

I voted both. That's what I did. I got a pack n play for the bedroom and the rock n play for everywhere else. And the rock n play in portable too, probably easier to pack up and take along than the pack n play.

Kayla has taken over the rock n play though so I see another one in our future.

Since Kayla had reflux, I wanted to be prepared this time. The rock n play has a good angle and looks really comfortable. Kayla seems to think its the best thing ever.

I like the rocker sleeper. It's different enough to be worth the money, and the price is right.

I voted for the Arms Reach sleeper. I found that both the swing and bouncy chair we had for Lily works fine to keep Abri inclined enough to keep her reflux from bothering her. Since she wakes up so many times at night, I wish I had the co-sleeper.

I love the co-sleeper. It's SOOO nice to have. Seriously, get it!!! I looked at the rocker, but the only issue is that baby has to be strapped in. When I wake up with Sam, I have my eyes shut and I don't even fully wake up. I'm not sure I could strap him in everytime he woke up. Something to think about.

I think the rocker sleeper looks great, because of the portability.

You'll have the best of both worlds, then! I was going to say the co-sleeper. We have a pnp and that's what we're using, but I wish, wish, wish it were a co-sleeper. I haven't really found any on CL and refuse to buy one brand new when the pnp will do us just fine, just not as convenient as I'll have to lean over to lift him out of the bassinette part for a while.

I voted the co-sleeper, but it looks like you already got it. Awesome! I wish I had one, wanted one with every kid. They just spend so much time in my bed with me at night when they're babies, that it would be great for them to have their own space.

Good job on a great find!

Wow, I've never seen one of those rocker sleepers but they sure would have come in handy with Jacob, he had horrible acid reflux and I used to have to put him in his carseat and place the carseat into the bassinet part of the pack n play, he slept that way for the first 4 months of life, this would have been perfect therefore I voted for that one. I think in general babies seem to enjoy sleeping with elevation and the rocker looks much more portable and convenient for travel.
