I'm hoping to get a bedside crib or similar for when LO arrives, but have very limited space beside my bed and need access to drawers/cupboards right where the crib will sit (joys of fitted furniture in a tiny room!) so it needs to be collapsible/moveable. All the moses baskets and stands I've looked at seem very flimsy - is that just how they are, or do you get 'better' ones? also looking at Chicco next2me crib www.mothercare.com/Chicco-Next-2-Me-Bedside-Crib---Dove-Grey/593765,default,pd.html but think it won't quite fit sad also don't really want to be spending ££ on something LO will only use for a few months! What have other mums used and was it any good? Glad for any recommendations! TIA

We also wanted to minimise our spend but get bedside crib. We saw a demo of the Bednest at baby show in Manchester. The lady was an antenatal teacher and showed so many features. We looked at Chicco - but you can't lift the crib off the stand. And you can't close the side once open without unstrapping whole thing from your bed. It's also a bit flimsy IMHO. We rented the Bednest for £79. Will last six months - twice as long as Moses basket. Then when finished with it Bednest collect it. (We used code SHOW20 to get that price - don't know if it will work now. - also it's only for Bednests website - doesn't work on NCT website.)
