Co-sleeper? But if you bed doesn't have big side rails you can just remove the front of a regular crib and attach it to the side of the bed.

I use a co-sleeper. And they sell additional blocks to add height to the bottom, if needed.

That's good to know. We are inheriting a very tall bed and I wanted to use a co sleeper but didn't know how it would work.

Now, I coslept/shared a bed with my daughter because my husband was gond and I had plenty of room. This one I'm thinking a cosleeper, will it work similarly to sharig a be as being able to nurse easily at night or should I just keep my thoughts on a pack n play with a bassinet for awhile?

It is thin like a bassinet, but attaches to the side of your bed. It should be really easy to get to the baby.

I didn't know they made stuff to make the crib taller so we just put a bunch of blankets under the mattress to make it all even. The crib was still a bit lower than the bed so I ended up sleeping head DOWN in the crib w/ the rest of my body in the bed

I looked at cosleepers as a safe alternative to bed sharing, but it turns out they aren't recommend either. I also read lots of reviews saying they take a lot of space and make it difficult to get out of bed. I'm going with the pack and play with bassinet, which we need anyway, so money saved!

DH is building us a co-sleeper that is very much like the SUPER expensive culla baby co sleeper but ours will have one set of legs and will screw into the box spring into the mattress. It's small enough it won't take up a ton of space and I am SO excited about it!

Here is a DIY link that is similar to the one we are doing.

Amanda, I heard they are very similar to bed sharing.

This is the one I am getting:Amazon.com: Arm's Reach Concepts Clear-Vue Co-Sleeper, Cocoa/Fern: Baby

It is co sleeper, but if I have trouble with co sleeping, I can make it a freestanding bassinet. I plan on moving him/her to a crib around 5 months. They have bigger ones for those that want to cosleep longer.
