I am totally obsessing over this! I want the babies to sleep in our room when they are born until whenever. I plan on brestfeeding, but I am boogled as to where they should sleep. I looked at PnP, but the weight limit for the bassinet goes to 15lbs, and I anticipate them sleeping together in there longer then that.

What did you ladies do?

Well, ours were in our room for about 2 weeks in a PnP. However, with what very little sleep we were getting to begin with, every little peep they made was waking us up unnecessarily.

So, they've been in their room, in their own cribs since they were about a month old (NICU babies).

Have you looked into the Twin PnP? It might be able to hold more weight.

Get the full size co-sleeper! I had it attached to my bed and the girls slept there for the first 4 months- until they started rolling over! Then I had to separate them. 1 slept in her crib and the other still slept in the cosleeper!

You will also want a PnP though. At the time, we were in a 2 bedroom condo, but I needed a place to put the babies down when I was in the living room. So I got a PnP and that helped SO much! Oh, and my girls are now 16 months and we are still using the PnP and the cosleeper (as a playpen, for naps).

I personally didn't like the Twin PnP for the sole reason that the bassinets were separated from each other. I wanted the girls to be close to each other.

The boys slept in a pnp in our room for 2wks then we moved them to their crib. Fortunately their room is right next to ours so it wasn't that much more effort to hear them & b/f at night. I think its always great to have a pnp around, we still use ours all the time.

We had an Arms Reach Co-sleeper.. which I highly suggest. The bassinets weightlimit goes to 30lbs. My twins slept in it (together) until they were around 6 months. (right next to our bed) Then they went into a crib in our room, then at 9 months they went into their own room in seperate cribs.

Make sure to look for the original Co-sleeper not the mini.

Not sure how this is going to work, but we have a PnP on the first floor. We have one crib in the nursery and one in our room. Our plan is to have them in the same crib in our room at first and move them at some point. It may be after a week or may be after a few months. We'll just wing it and decide as the time comes.

Thank you peimum for my siggie

My lil ones slept in their own cribs at about 2 weeks also. For the first few weeks I slept in the living room healing from my c/s I couldnt walk all the stairs to my room and then would have to come down stairs to make bottles and such. So they slept in a bassinet together next to the couch.

My DH was an over the road truck driver so I made it easier for me lol

well noah slept in a bassinette in our room (a regular bassinette, not one with a PnP) until he was about 15 weeks old. (according to my notes he was around 17.5 lbs at that time).

my "plan" is to have them both is a bassinette or both in a crib (whichever is more comfortable for them) in our room until i don't know when! just whenever we are ready to move them i guess (or when they are ready to split up). we don't really have an official nursery right now anyway with our house on the market and unsure of what's going to happen there so they may be in our room for a few months!

The boys were 42 weeks when they came home from hospital, and they slept in their own cribs in their room with Angelcare monitors every night since then. I did the same thing with my singleton, just got up to EBF each time as I didn't rest well with listening to him squirming all night.

Lucky mother to five!

I had my twins share a pack n' play for about the first 3 months. They actually slept in their bouncy seats in the pack n' play for quite awhile due to reflux issues. It was much easier to have them right next to me while breastfeeding.
