This is too simplistic for GQ…
A character in a story I’m working on has just gotten custody of his 8-month-old son, and is paranoid that he won’t have him long, so he’s very reluctant to go out and buy a lot of stuff for the baby, or accept people’s hand-me-downs.
If you didn’t have a crib, playpen, one of those pack and play things etc. as an option, what would you do with the baby when he needed to sleep?
Said baby is mobile enough to crawl and probably pull himself up to standing, which is what makes it hard for me to think of a makeshift place to put him. He’d be able to get out of a drawer, right?
