Hi! I was just wanting some opinions. Everyone I know who has had kids always starts there newborn out in a Pack-n-Play or Bassinet. Is there a downfall to bringing them home straight to a Crib? Any opinions would be great

I personally don't see a "downfall" as to putting them straight into a crib. With that said, you also have to keep in mind whatever is more convenient for you. You'll have a newborn, and the baby will be waking up every few hours to feed and be changed during the night. If the crib is in a separate room, this could cause for some toes getting stubbed, a delayed reaction to you waking up, and a cranky baby the following day. With a pack 'n' play or bassinett in your bedroom; at arm's reach, your reaction is much faster and it seems to be a lot easier for mommy (and daddy) to tend to their newborn.

Hope I helped!

We put the crib next to our bed, and solved both probs. She was within arm's reach, and we didn't have to buy another temporary peice of furniture.

That's what we were thinking about doing. We were thinking about it because it seems like such a waist of money to by something they are going to be in for such a short time if we DON'T need it.

Baby's crib will be right next to my side of the bed. We did that with Curtis as well. It made for a VERY easy transition to his own room cause he was used to his crib

My BFF put both her babies straight in the crib. And has had no downfall. I however, used a cradle with my first cuz I had a c/s and wasnt able to walk well at first. Same with my second c/s, I used the pack in play. however both were moved to their own rooms in their crib at 3 mths.

It really all depends on you. how you feel. If you want to go to another room to tend to them in the first few months.. or rather if you feel up to depending on how your delivery goes.

My cradle wasnt a waste cuz it was handed down from my sister. the pack play is great now that my youngest is 6 mths old, cuz its in the living room and is a safe place I can puthim if I need to get something done. Also a place he can nap and I can keep an eye on him.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my gorgeous siggie!
