I only used a crib with my first 2 kids. the later 2 we used the bassinet playpen. Its the playpen that has the bassinet on top and when the baby gets bigger u take it off. My daughter is 3 weeks and barely sleeps in it lol. I breastfeed so mostly shes in the bed with us. Its easier thn getting up every 2 hours to feed her .

I bought the bassinet first; I bought it when I was about 5 months along. My daughter  came 12 weeks early, so as tiny as she was when I brought her home from the hospital, the bassinett was perfect fo her. I got a convertible crib later at a baby shower. She's outgrown the bassinett so now she sleeps in her crib. And I love the fact that it turns into a full size bed later.

IMHO, I don't see the point in a regular crib. Babies outgrow stuff so quickly. You want something that is going to get a lot of use. The same can be said for the car seat. There are convertible car seats that accomodate 5-100 lbs. That's birth to about 12 years!!! Shocked They cost a little more than regular car seats, but it pays for itself over time.
That's just my opinion, though. I like saving $$$ in the long term.

Most full sized babies grow out of it really quickly. We had it and while it was great for keeping baby safely between us so  he could be within arms reach, we only used it for 2/3 months - baby was 4lbs and premie issues. Then we switched him to the PacknPlay with the bassinet attachment. He slept in the the bassinet attachment until we found him sitting up oneday out of the blue. Then we droped it. We moved him out of our room and into his own at 1 year. Then we moved the PackNPlay to Grandma's and now at 28 months he sleeps in it at grandma's. Thank heavens for that crib because my back went out and if I was putting him in the pack-n-play daily I would just DIE!
I vote for a crib that converts to toddler to full bed. I love it - DS is still using it as a crib but in a jiffy DH can switch it to toddler bed and then to full. No need to buy anything else.
