We debated on where to keep her. The bedroom? Thank God we decided against this... she never slept. When she DID sleep, her tracheomalacia made her snort and gurgle like a furnace... no sleep would ever occur if she was in our room. We thought about the bathroom. Probably too noisy. So, we ended up parking the crib right in the middle of Grand Central Station- aka the living room. "Decorating" was hard. The bedding couldn't clash too much with the color of our huge rug, it would drive me insane. Ryan's parents gave her a gorgeous crib that matched our furniture well enough, and my parents gifted us the perfect bedding to match our current decor. We found a nice changing table that went along with everything.
It sounds weird to have your baby sleep in the living room, but somehow it has worked for 13 months and 14 days worth of nights. There has been the occasional late night wake up when Ryan comes home from work, but for the most part our kid sleeps like a rock. (knock on wood!)
|Crib... I have since made Ryan move it to be centered!|
The changer sits to the right of the crib now. The TV is on the wall to the right, recliners to the left.
