Pregnancy + Baby Advice We Wish We'd Never Followed

8. Use A Bassinet Beside You
As I prepped for our baby's arrival, I made plans. And those plans were for our newborn to sleep in our room, in a lovely bassinet arrangement right next to my bedside. That was what I was told was best. Well, reality hit and our little guy didn't like that bassinet. At all. He loved his Rock-n-Play, however, and he slept for hours in it — so you better believe that's where we put him. It was a win for everyone, and lesson learned:Go with what works for your baby over what you've been told to go with.
