Where Babys Will Sleep On A Boat

DeeJay - March 2

I have a little time till we go away, but my parents have a boat, and we will be taking dd on it for a long weekend, and my delema is where she will sleep. I have a pack and play, but we would have to set it up in the salon (living room tv area) and then we would all have to be quiet while she sleeps. So I would like to put her up in the forward cabin, but it is what is called a "v-bunk" type bed, and it is very high up. This is also where dh and I sleep so she would be sleeping with us, which she never has before. Although this is a large boat, there is still limited space. I was thinking of bringing her blow up bath tub, and using it as a bed with some blankets in it so she cannot roll off the bed. Any other suggestions would be helpfull. Also does anyone know of a place to get life vests for 6+ month olds?

How old iis you little one? what about a moses basket, like a portable ba__sinette type thing? If she is able to move around lot and roll, that one proabbly isnt' the best....My dh grandmother used to put him to sleep in the bathtub.....she wuold put balkets down and lay him in there.

We have a 27' cabin cruiser that we spend most of our summer on (every weekend, plus a two-week holiday), and I was wondering where our little guy is going to sleep as well. He'll be six months when start heading out. I was thinking that we'd all co-sleep in the V-berth. I'd use our pack & play, but I'm not sure where it would fit just yet. Check Overtons website for life jackets. They might have some. If not, try contacting the Coast Guard.
