d1dcee619dde284b4d99a9d6ceabd58a.PNG4cf67a89e33c70cf6844797b89c9a7b8.PNGWe have a baby crib that we "tried" using for both of our daughters when they were babies but as soon as we would put them down in it, they would wake right up. I don't even like the crib because it's hard for me to put them down in it anyways. So I figured with baby #3 I could buy a pack n play that comes with a bassinet/changer and it'll be a whole lot easier on me. I just can't figure out which one I like. I kinda want one that lights up at night with a mobile like the one above but I'm a little upset that it's not the rocker type.

That one looks nice! There are SOOO many options but they can get so pricey too. This is the one I'm getting. It's not a rocker either but I love the storage aspect of it.

Wow that is a nice storage set! You're right they are kind of expensive. We're still trying to get a car seat and also buy one of those sit and stand strollers Surprised

Holy cow, I don't know what happened with all those posts Embarassed

I feel so blessed that our niece bought us a car seat and my dad is buying us the stroller that goes with it. My nana is gifting us the pack n play too. But everything else, it's all been on us and it's overwhelming. Are you set on the rocker? We got a swing and then this little cuddle cove seat should be enough. I've tried to make what we have, can afford work...
I was really into this one too and it's got the removable rocker. I just like the storage part of the other one more. I couldn't find many with that much space + the removable seat.

We unfortunately have to buy EVERYTHING :-( I'm not having a baby shower because I don't really have any friends haha. I'd love to buy a travel system like we did with our girls but it's a lot harder this time. I'll have a 3 year old in July and my youngest will be 15 months in a couple weeks. She's able to walk but not by herself in public, she still falls every now and then. So we'll have to buy a stroller that fits a car seat ugh lol. I think I'll just settle for the bassinet pack n play and end up getting one of those mamaroo rocker things or something. I see you're due soon, I know you're excited! I can't wait until my time comes, I've been miserable this whole pregnancy lol

I have the same one that's in your pic but a friend  gave it to us and  it didn't have that light up thing above the bassinet because i think they lost it.  We used it for both babies because they HATED the crib lol, but they absolutely loved that pack n play

I hated my pack n play or maybe my babies hated it so i didn't like it either. I got an autorock rock n play sleeper for my baby and it's amazing, he's my best sleeper yet! When he gets too big for it we will switch to DD's old crib which i love because you can move the mattress high enough that putting down a sleeping baby won't jolt them awake when trying to reach to put them down

I'm thankful for the little bits of help for sure. It's been a rough year here...The sit n stands are nice! Plus, they're not too pricey! Those mamaroos look so nice! That would be a decent compromise!

I have 2 1/2ish weeks left till my c-section and I am so anxious. I've become quite miserable Embarassed

That's the exact one I've had with DS and now DD. DS never slept in the bassinet but DD loves it but now she's too long for it and doesn't sleep as good laying in her crib lol

We used a mini crib and it worked better than a pack n play. Also more stable and comfortable for them to lay in as the bottom doesn't give it have creases in it like pack n plays do. As a newborn a rock n play worked to sleep in.
