We used a co-sleeper next to my bed for my son and I LOVED it!! Since we were nursing, I knew this would be the best option. He was right beside me, without having to worry about anyone rolling on top of him. I also liked that it was much smaller than a crib or pack n play, allowing for walk space near my side of the bed. He ended up getting about 9 months or so out of it before he started standing up in it, so it was well worth the money in my opinion. I HIGHLY recommend these!
