Okay. Advice-giving time. For once, in the other, slightly less well-known direction: you to me.
Two burning-ish questions:
- Is the convertible-to-toddler-bed thing worth it?
- Do I want a drop-down side (vs. 5 million different possible matress heights), or will that be mostly impractical anyways (what with carrying a (potentially sleeping) baby while you drop it down)?
- PS: I know the baby will be sleeping with us (co-sleeper or actual co-sleeping) for some time, but I need a crib. Pretty much right now. Because holy smokes, it's January. June is like... right around the corner.
2. car seat
- I hate how cumbersome the (seemingly standard) portable infant carseat thing is (do we all know what I'm talking about?) Those things are heavy and unbelievably stupid to carry. If I DON'T get one, how often will I miss it? Will I end up waking up a sleeping child every time I leave my car?
I'm planning on wearing the baby in a sling whenever possible, plus - at the grocery store I'd literally be unable to see where I'm going if I put the carseat in the cart.
Also, I'm sort of loving the infant-to-practically-adult-sized-child Britax.
How long until it returns?
Oh never mind. I'm actually enjoying The Crazy of it all.
