While most of us spend an endless amount of time searching for the perfect crib to anchor our nurseries, the reality is that your crib will probably just sit there collecting dust for those first few months. The adjustment period with a newborn is hard enough without having to go in and out rooms all night long. You’ll likely want your new bundle of a joy in a cozier sleep oasis right next to your bed. So before you look up one more crib, prioritize what comes first and choose the right bassinet for you. After all, it is going to be part of your room decor for a few months.
