Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I would say when your pregnant ... To be ready when your baby comes...!! Like around 7 months when you still feel okay to be decorating the nursery and stuff...But if the baby is already at home any time you have the money, time, is fine the sonner you get her used to sleeping in the crib the less hard it will be... believe it or not babys get used to sleeping with you or where ever there sleeping and changing that is sometimes kinda hard after the babys been there for a while ..

My son went straight into his crib when we brought him home.  I didn't want to spend the extra money on a bassinet (no matter how adorable they were).  I'd say you can buy a crib whenever you're ready to buy a crib financially, or have the space for it to go.

It is better to do so before the baby is born and when you have enough energy to go decide on which one you want. It is also best that it gets set up before the baby is born. You don't have to put the sheets on right away. Just before you use it :)

as soon as my daughter came home from the hospital, she slept in her crib. we had to put her in a playpen at 6 months, after she decided to climb out of it. i turned around to get a diaper off the changing table, turn back around, and boom! she's straddling the side with this look like, "look mama! no hands!" i thought i was going to have a heart attack. needless to say, i have a WORLD CLASS CLIMBER on my hands. she's now 22 months.

buy a crib before your baby is born. there's no need to buy a bassinet. if you are low on cash, a playpen works just fine. my daughter came home from the hospital, and went straight into her crib. at 6 months, she climbed out of it, and has been sleeping in a playpen since.

bassinets are a waste of money. I used a Graco Pack-n-play. The bottom raised up, it had a little canopy on it, and it even had an attachment for a changing area. I bought it like-new at a yard sale for $40. So glad I did this. After Claire stopped sleeping in it, I sent it to my mom's for when she stays over there.
