Originally we talked about replacing the bed with a black Jenny Lind crib, y'know if this whole TTC thing works, but now we're not as sure. Honestly, we co-slept with Little K for the first year and it went rather well. She *literally* never slept in her crib for me; instead, we endured three completely sleepless nights of unabated crying before I gave up and slept peacefully with her in our bed. I'm thinking that I will leave the queen bed setup for grandparents, etc. to visit and then use it as a spare sleep surface if the new one has a fussy night or one of us is sick. Our master bedroom is massive and could hold a crib if needed, especially since I breastfeed my kids and would rather not haul my postpartum butt up 15 stairs 3x/night for the first six months.
Of course, that hinges on TTC working and a new baby being the same as Little K. We would obviously be playing all of this by ear. We should have some idea of whether or not this will even be an issue by the end of the month.
