I've been in love with this cradle ever since I bought it last week from my coworker's stepdaughter. They picked it up at an antique store last year and she used it for her son who was born last December. I was a little hesitant to get it, but after my sister-in-law convinced me (and it didn't take much) that I'd need a co-sleeper for the first few weeks, I ended up getting it for $40. I took it home last Tuesday and I couldn't be happier with how it looks!
I'm having a hard time finding a mattress cover since it's a little bigger than a changing pad, yet smaller than a crib mattress. So I wrapped it in a throw blanket temporarily until I find the right one that fits.
I'm hoping this will save me some sleepless nights, but somehow I doubt it. We're keeping this in our bedroom for a few weeks while the baby sleeps with us. This is truly a timeless piece that I'm sure I'll enjoy using with Baby T and future babies to come!
Pregnancy Update: I'm 35 weeks today! Paul assembled the stroller this past weekend and even installed the carseat in my car. His fatherly instincts sure kicked in! As excited as we are to meet this baby, we want him stay in just a little while longer until he's "well done." We're so smitten with him already!
