Questions for those with cats and baby(ies)
I have 3 cats at home and I'm pregnant - due in January. We live in a small apartment and there is no way I can't lock out the cats out of our bedroom. I want to keep the baby next to me, in a bassinet and later move her/him in a crib in our second bedroom. Now my problem is, how to keep the cats away from the bassinet? I was thinking to maybe have someone make me some kind of 'cover' (with holes so there is enough air).
How are the cats usually around the baby? Are they coming close to the baby or are they keeping distance? I'm just wondering....this is my first baby and I'm not sure what to expect.
My other option would be to keep the baby in the 2nd bedroom (the cats are not allowed there because we keep there computers, guitars, etc) - which will be turned into nursery. but in this case, the baby wouldn't be close to me. Not sure if that's good right from the beginning.
