..bassinet, pack & play, rock & play!? Help! :)

Hey Mamas!

So with only about a month to go until my due date.. the only thing we have left to sort out/buy is... a bassinet, pack & play or that highly talked about rock & play sleeper.. do you Mamas have any advice, suggestions or tips?

Currently I am thinking a small bassinet or the rock & play sleeper... my parents are getting a pack & play.. and I realize loads of parents use the top bassinet part of the pack & play for their newborn to sleep in.. but to me, it's bulky, hard to move and you won't use that top portion for long anyways.. the smaller bassinet or rock & play sleeper appeals to me because it's WAY portable, can rock, can be moved, light weight, etc..

So Mamas.. give me your input! :)

        I highly recommend you use the pack n' play the top bassinet I use it for the first 2 months during the day. The rock n' play I will be using probably night and at times during the day. This will be the first time using the rock n' play because it's new and was not around to try when my other 2 kiddos were born, but I have heard all kinds of great things and decide to buy it. I think is all about personal preference, whatever makes the baby comfy and you like best.

                I had a small bassinet and a pack n play that had music lights and an mp3 input for his music it also came w/ a heart that a put my finger on for my recorded heart beat.I got that at babies r us.He loved it.When i was pregnant with all my babies i played classical music and lulabies over my belly.Then the MP3 player on the pack n play,allowed me to play the music he remembered in the womb.
