I'm looking for a bassinet for my son who'll be born soon ( hopefully). Does anyone have any suggestions on where I can get one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg??? It doesn't have to be fancy. I've tried They have some nice ones, but I like to have options. Any suggestions?

We're also using a pack n play with a bassinet attachment on top. It wasn't too bad as far as cost. They used to have a stand alone bassinet at walmart for pretty cheap as well. :)

We're also using a pack and play with the bassinet feature . We had a regular bassinet with our oldest but it didn't last long since our daughter was so tall she outgrew it by height real quick. You can always find them at consignment stores, Craig's lists ect. Since there not used for very long there generally in great condition. If you can afford it I'd look more into a pack and play with the bassinet so you'll get more use out of it . If space is super tight look into the travel lite pack and plays there smaller then the standard size ones .
