I'm a first time mom (creating my baby registry) who is wondering if it is safe to place a newborn into a crib to sleep. I have a tiny house, so the crib will be right next to my side of the bed. I just don't see the reasoning in purchasing a bassinette that I can only use for a few months, only to turn around and buy a crib 3-6 months later.
I have heard from a birthing coach that you should sleep with your newborn in your bed for the first few weeks, but I have also read that can be extremely dangerous for the baby.
Any words of wisdom?
