Expectant parents spend a ton of time buying cribs, assembling them and selecting bedding to match a nursery's decor, but most parents prefer to wait a while before they actually have baby sleep in the crib.
One great option is a Moses basket. I kept our sleeping babe in one on the side of the bed until she moved into her crib. The baskets are pretty and convenient for newborns. And, I love that they can go from room to room so when baby needs a nap, you can always keep an eye on her.
A quick tip, make sure the lining in the basket is machine washable as you never know how much of a mess baby might make.
