Hello to parents and parents to be of twins, I have a question on sleeping arrangements as I have boy/girl twins on the way. So, I was trying to avoid the use of Moses baskets as I had it in my head that they last for such a short time and then you're sort of stuck with them afterwards as no one would really want them second hand. We ordered a travel cot to use downstairs for daytime napping and 2 cot beds for upstairs. But now that we're putting it all together, it seems that the cotbed may be just a bit too big to fit in our bedroom. I just need some help deciding on the options we have for upstairs sleeping:
1. Put the babies in one cotbed together in the nursery and I can sleep in there with them on a single bed.
2. Rent a co-sleeping cot that will fit onto our double bed in our bedroom. It is provided with a new mattress. I think we'd get 4 months out of it if both are in it. We can return the cotbed once we're finished with it, so no need to find a new home for it.
3. Get 2 Moses baskets that should fit in the bedroom with us if we put one at side of bed and one at foot of bed. I have heard that you might only get a few weeks out of Moses baskets depending on how big the babies are, which is kind of why I was avoiding them. My local Aldi still has a couple in stock.
Options 2&3 mean getting more equipment and another set of sheets 🙄
