Tiny newborns are hard to leave alone in the big crib. That's why there are smaller places for babies to sleep. These are fairly popular for space saving and other reasons. Some involve co-sleeping or the family bed, while others are the prelude to a crib.
The Snuggle Delight is a nice product for parents who are new to co-sleeping with their babies. This product can help them overcome fears and safely sleep with their baby. It is portable and small enough to fit in even a double bed. It is a small bed within a bed concept. Very similar to the Snuggle Nest.
The Hoohobbers Baby Moses Basket is an ideal place for your newborn to sleep. It is easy to move from room to room and has washable sheets and bumpers. This makes the perfect smaller space for a new baby, or for a second sleep area on another floor. I bought one, and it's been used for six kids. Though I did eventually need to buy some replacement pads - only because I lost them.
The Jenny Lind Cradle was the first baby purchase I ever made. It was a beautiful wooden cradle, with the ability to rock. It also has a pin mechanism to stop it from moving if your baby prefers that. The mattress was perfect size and fit nicely in a small room. It's perfect for a newborn.
