I’m still here; I just haven’t had a lot to blog about lately.
My mom gave me her bread machine that she never used, so I’ve had fun playing around with that lately.
I have been researching different childbirth “methods.” I’m still not set on any one approach, but I am feeling more prepared and even excited about giving birth. If I had to do it today, I could (but, of course, I want Baby to stay inside for a couple more months to grow bigger and stronger).
We know we want Baby in our bedroom for the first few months at least (actually, we don’t have a lot of choice, since our apartment only has one bedroom). We were considering getting an Arm’s Reach Mini Co-Sleeper, and maybe we still will, but a lot of the parent reviews I have read online say that their babies outgrew them after four or five months. I don’t know if it would be a good use of money to get a co-sleeper that could only be used for four or five months and then have to purchase a full-sized crib, as well.
Another option would be to get an relatively inexpensive Moses basket (has anyone ever tried one?) or bassinet, plus a crib. Any advice from moms who have been there? Did you have your babies sleep in your room? When did you move them to another room?
