    I think the bassinet is a gorgeous idea. I guess its depends on whether you can financially justify it

    Financially it's fine, hubby just doesn't see the point of them, where as I think they are more secure for a tiny bub and more portable than a cot

    I used to work in a mother baby unit as a nurse and newborns were always in bassinets. I guess its personal choice but I prefer to have them sleeping well in a bassinet and then gradually moving to a cot. As I said personal choice. Every bubba is different and will adjust accordingly. I hope you dh sees the benefit of you really want one x

    Mum2b, I tend to agree with your husband. I will be going straight to cot. But if you can afford it you may as well do both.

    I'm 1dpo today. I think there are quite a few of us testing at the end of the month. Lets hope the next two weeks go quickly.

    So far behind in this thread, but think I saw some BFP so congrats!!!

    Week till testing day and I have a function the night before ekk not sure if I should risk a few drinks or not. Really feel we missed the egg this month so not feeling to positive and not tempted for once to test as I really don't want to see the BFN.

    Really need to catch up on this new thread, moves way to fast .

    We probably wouldn't have bought one, but had one passed on from a friend and it was good as we could keep bubs in our room overnight and sleep in their own room during the day and we could just pop it in their cot. Babies last in them for about 3-4months maximum.

    On my phone, if I press the menu "button" (touch area to left of home button on Galaxy S2), I get the option to subscribe (so I don't have to post anything). I can also use that to unsubscribe.

    I like bassinets & have my eye on two of the expensive ones (can't remember what they're called at the moment - I have them bookmarked on the internets). I plan to have bubs in the room with us when really young, then move to cot in own room later.

    I used the one from our pram. We went and brought the proper stand for it to be used as a normal basinette also. I didn't realize that those ones are smaller! Ds was born big ish (9lbs) and it only lasted us 8 weeks before he was squished! The stand alone cost us as much, or more than some bassinets! ($110!!)
    So I don't recommend that option... I am looking at another one, a proper one, for #2, because I think they are adorable, and we have less room in our bedroom now. We had a huge room when ds was born, his cot was in our room till he was 14mnths! Buy ill be aware of size.

    He went in my great nephews basinette at 12 weeks while we were on holidays and still had heaps of room!
