iVillage did an informal survey asking what sleeping arrangement works best for a newborn baby.

Well, for every baby we have borrowed a cradle from SO's mother, but my kids have never liked sleeping in it. I just feel bad saying no to her. For DS, he slept in his carseat for about 3 weeks and then the cradle for about 4 and then his crib. Truth is, he never slept much until he was 2 years old and we put him in a big bed.

Carsyn is going to be sleeping right next to our bed for a bit in his pack and play bassenet for a bit, and then he will move to his crib which will still be in our room for a while longer

Same as Cheyenne for me most likely unless she likes the crib right away. My DD15 slept in the crib from the beginning (she outgrew bassinette pretty quickly sizewise. Of course she woke up all night but that's a newborn for you no matter where they sleep!!

This baby will sleep in a bassinet next to our bed until 2-3 months and then will move into a crib in the nursery.
