Good Questions: Do Combo Nursery/Guest Rooms Work?

Miranda writes: I've read about and seen numerous photos of combo guestroom/nurseries, but I was wondering how well they really worked. My husband and I are moving into a two bedroom apartment, and would like to have a guest bed in the future baby's room. Do adult guests and infants really make good roomies, though? Is it only a nice idea in theory?

If a family member is visiting soon after delivery, aren't we keeping our guest awake all the time with the night feedings? Do you end up having to move the baby to a new room whenever you have a guest? Can that work? I'd be grateful for any real-life experiences the readers can offer. Thank you!

Please share your thoughts and suggestions with Miranda in the comments below...thanks!
