sorry, not too sure where this should go so popping it here.
we live in a double storey home. bubs is due next month and we have a bassinet for him to sleep in which will be in our room for the first few months. bassinet is on wheels so can be moved around upstairs but it's a tad heavy/clunky to be wheeling up and down the stairs.
I'm basically after some kind of solution for when we are downstairs for bub to sleep. hoping to avoid buying a second bassinet for obvious reasons. I was thinking a portacot as it would be ideal to kill 2 birds with 1 stone and have a travel sleeping solution ready to go too.
my only hesitation is, are portacot a safe for such frequent use? the parachute type fabric a lot of them seem to use seems not that breathable so I'm a bit worried about ventilation?
ideally I was thinking we get a portacot for bubs to use when he's downstairs with us, then we take him upstairs at night to sleep in his bassinet when we go to bed. I'm not even sure if what I'm thinking/proposing is suitable as I'm sure babies have their own ideas about where and when they'll sleep 😂
just wanting to hear from others who have 2 storey homes and what the best solution might be?
it also gets quite warm upstairs and being summer, I'm hoping to not have to worry about the room temp constantly (eg I got home last night and the temp in our room was 34C!!). it's a lot cooler downstairs.
thanks ladies xx
