Baby on Board- Sleeping?
When our first baby was born, we had the portable crib, but soon realized it took up way too much space. We ended up using existing bunks with netting covering the opening. It was perfect. We just latched it on the upper bunk or ceiling and it was easy to get him and her in and out. I don''t know if it will work, but here is a picture of our 2nd child in the top bunk:
My suggestion is to use the space you have. A boat is so limited as it is.
We are currently living aboard/cruising locally with 2 kids, ages 2 1/2 and 4. It''s really starting to get a little easier. Netting is the key for our piece of mind on deck. The kids are able to play and we don''t have to worry too much. They always wear their life jacket whenever on deck or on the docks. That has been our rule since they started walking. They are so used to it, that most of the time I have to remind them they can take off their life jackets while down below.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. It''s nice having resources when it comes to having the kids on the boat. Best of luck.
