We used a moses basket inside a crib as had a swinging crib given to us with ds , then used both with the next 2 , out of the moses basket then into the crib for another month or so , so not much difference really , as was pulling herself up to see by that point , dh wanted to get a cot/bed to begin with but we got a cot n now youngest is in a junior bed ( I thought the basket was more cosy than a big cot to begin with ) I'm going to get a rocking stand for the moses basket this time as the crib takes up quite a bit of room , and dismantled after lily as thought she was our last , I know what you mean re the nest though , they look good don't they , sorry not been much help have I ..... as you say , decisions decisions x x

Last time we used a moses until 4 months when he was really too big for it. He then moved into his own room in the cot because its just not practical to have the cot in our room.
This time I would like to get closer to the recommended 6 months and I suspect if need be we would force the cot in somehow. I will just get out of the bed on the wrong side as the cot will need to be up to me, blocking a wardrobe too. I don't mind it once I'm more recovered, feeding is established and sleeping too. I think that way it would only be a few weeks- month of it before we can have the 2 kids in together without too much worry.
Did you ever have issues with a new baby waking your older children or the older children poking/trying to hurt or wake up the baby? I think you never know how they will react and that reaction may change over time. I think my son will be ok as he is quite easy going but then again who knows?! I imagine him waking baby up thought and trying to look after him or her.
I am looking quite seriously at hiring the NCT bednest. It seems ideal from what I can remember about feeding with a c section. It will be awesome once the night time poops are over too.
How are you feeling in general?
