    Just wondering what you ladies have used or plan on using, I'm unsure which would be better to put in our room at first. Thinking either a little gliding crib or Moses basket.

    We're putting a rocking Moses basket in our room first and in babies room will be the cotbed
    The swinging cribs look rigid and not very comfy Moses baskets look more snug.
    I've just bought a pure white wicker Moses basket from mothercare it's lush c

    I am considering using the nest bed, that attaches on to your bed but keeps baby separate from you.

    You can hire them as well, so you don't have to buy if money is a bit tighter.

    With my first I bought a gliding crib and she hated it wouldn't sleep in it, for first 2/3 weeks she would only sleep in the bed with me! then she started steeping in the pram!

    With this one I'm goin to get a Moses basket x

    We've got a gliding crib for the bedroom, then I'm gonna use the carrycot on the pram in the day (living in a bungalow, should make it easy to move baby room to room with me). There's been lots of nice comments on how lovely our crib looks (2nd hand on eBay for £45) and I figured it'd last us longer on this one, and for future :)

    Saw lovely rocking Moses today in mother care but they don't look very sturdy. Are they all the same? X

    We have cribs for the girls in our bedroom and they will sleep in the pram downstairs. Moses baskets are ok untill they roll, as h rolled over at 2 weeks I am pleased I didn't get one! A lot of friends had to get a crib after just a month or two as their babies grew out of the Moses basket!

    i had same problem weeks back,crib moses or bednest. and finally got a swinging white crib from mothercare £99.00
    moses baskets are easy to get them around but they grow out of them quickly.
    we have a bugaboo so she will sleep in that in day.
    bed nest does look good i have to say but firstly i wouldnt have the side down at night i would worry that baby would roll out.
    i think its such a personal choice though x

    I defo wouldn't have it down at night but is great to have side down if your awake :) space is a premium in our room and I saw the bed nest in John Lewis and looked quite a small frame so shouldn't take up too much room x

    We got a travel cot with a bassinet insert for my first baby. It was perfect. It lasted until he was ready to go in the big cotbed. I shall be using it again for baby #2. It also has a very useful raised changing table attachment which meant that you could just whip them out for a quick change in the night without any fuss. It also means you've got a travel cot for if you go anywhere.
