Crib [Jun. 26th, 2009|01:27 am]
I finally got a crib for Matthew's room. After much nagging from my mother, my aunts, and pretty much every relative over 40 who heard I did not have one, I caved. I only got it because it was free, and I found a free mattress for it. I already had crib sheets and a crib dust ruffle inherited from Chastity and I picked up a bumper at the airmen's attic, so I didn't spend any money on it. The mattress is in good shape. If I find an inexpensive toddler bed or convertible crib I will use it for that. The crib however, is from 1988 and the pieces connect with plastic, which has become brittle and snapped in places over the past 21 years. There is no way in hell I will actually let Matthew stay in it, but I can honestly say I have one and it is kind of cute. Hopefully this will get them off my back.

My mother got my daughter a crib before she was born... Megan still has yet to sleep in it for a night. Haha. I finally turned it into a daybed, and she's napped in it once or twice, but she cosleeps with me. And I still get grief for "when are you going to put that child in her own bed." Makes me want to throttle someone.

We have an arm's reach co-sleeper that Matthew sleeps in from time to time, but he's usally in bed with me. My husband is always assuring people that Matthew will be both weaned and sleeping in his own bed by the time he goes to college. :)

We have a crib - Ellie slept in it maybe a few weeks when it was side-carred to our bed. I never even got it out for Frisco. Right now he and Ellie sleep on a double bed next ours, although I'm often there with him because I fall asleep while nursing.

We have an arm's reach co-sleeper, but Matthew mostly sleeps in bed with me. We don't have room for a second bed in our room, but that would be awesome! We figure Matthew will eventually go to his own bed, but not until he is well beyond the crib stage.
