Q: Hi, I am asking all you creative urban moms to please share your advice on creating a nursery nook in our 1-BR condo! I've attached a floor plan of our condo [see larger below]. Because of the first-time homebuyer credit we cannot move until June 2012 but don't want to wait until after then to start a family. (continued below…)

I would plan to use a co-sleeper by our bed for the first few months, but then after that I've thought of using the closet area (and likely one full closet) off the BR for a crib/clothes and treat that like a nursery. I could possibly close off that hallway from the bedroom with a sliding door like this. I know air circulation is a concern--would a small fan in the crib area suffice? Or would curtains instead of a sliding door be safer? Any suggestions/comments or links are welcome!

Also any advice on how long we might be able to keep that arrangement with a baby before we go insane and need more space would also be appreciated!
