I saw a long time ago, a picture of a nursery with a twin bed in the same room. I think it's a great idea. Although, I don't have kids yet so I don't know how great of an idea this is.
I would think that it would be good to have a bed so DH can sleep in our bedroom without being bothered. Since he will have to get up to go to work. Or vice-versa, when the DH is taking care of the baby and I'm asleep in the bedroom.
I'm thinking a futon, twin size bed or a pull out couch will work. Also, since we live in a 2 bed apt, we could use that nursery as a spare bedroom (maybe?) for visitors.
Is this a good idea?
