Sleeping Arrangements…….

25 Nov

Until a week ago I was under the impression that baby would be sleeping in a hand me down crib from my sister. Unfortunately once the crib got to us and we attempted to sand it down and paint it, it was clear it wouldn’t come up as nicely as we had hoped. We decided to buy a new crib and get rid of the older one.


After much deliberation and research (into which one we could pick up the same day as we’re impatient) we decided to go for the deluxe gliding crib from Mothercare. It has a really nice colour to it (Birch I think), feels sturdy and rocks really smoothly. We got it for £120 and took it home the same day. Hubby was able to put it up by himself in about half an hour with no major stresses – I’ll let you know baby’s verdict in a few weeks….


However, once the crib was up (and sheets/ blankets in it etc) hubby got a phone call from his brother who has a 7 week old baby girl. They’ve been using a Miyo hammock for her and she’s sleeping really well already. He very generously offered to buy us a hammock for our baby gift – lovely idea and it’ll take up less room in our bedroom – the crib is kind of big.

So now me and DH have switched sides of the bed in anticipation of the hammock arriving. My father in law will come and help him put it up once it gets here (which should be today). IF you haven’t see the hammocks then I’ll have a post about them coming up in the very near future – to be more specific –  once I have one.

The crib is now looking very swish in our front room 🙂

Has anyone used a hammock before? What does/ will your little one be sleeping in?
