i use the term"crib" quite loosely; it could be any confined sleeping device.
My youngest is the only one we had a pack and play for. Ironically, it's my kids who 100% co-slept until they moved to their own mattress on the floor that go to bed the best at night, no complaints, fall straight to sleep. I think maybe I moved my youngest out of the family bed too soon. Not sure. Can't go back now.

I don't think that if you use a crib you aren't being ap. You need to do whatever works for your family. I co-slept with both of mine until 8 months. Around then they became so wiggly and nobody was getting any sleep so it wasn't good for anybody. We moved them to cribs and they have slept better. Not that they sleep perfect now but they sleep better. I wouldn't worry about when you go on vacation your dd might adjust better to sleeping off the floor than you think. When we co-slept it was on a regular mattress with a boxspring and we survived. If you want to have something for the new baby to sleep in then get it. It is much different having 2 kids than 1. Don't worry about "rules" of ap just do what works for your family. I think that is a much bigger part of being ap than saying that you have to co-sleep.
