Nursery Daybed, Yes or No?

One of my best friends is expecting a precious little girl early next year, and she had asked me whether she *needs* a daybed in her nursery. If you ask me, I would say yes to the daybed, but what do I know? I am yet to have a baby or design/decorate a nursery. So I am hoping you ladies and new moms out there could give me some pointers - I would like to know too for my own benefits down the road.

So nursery daybed, yes or no? What would one need a daybed for in the nursery? Is it primarily for parents or baby? I could imagine a mom cuddling her baby to sleep on the daybed; or a dad attending to his fussy baby by napping on the daybed to keep them company; or spending some quality time playing with baby on the daybed. Are these scenarios all real? Do parents actually find good use of a daybed in a nursery?

Practicality aside, here are some gorgeous daybeds to send me into my design la-la land.

An vintage daybed in a soft and soothing nursery designed by Elizabeth Dinkel.

The ever-popular Ikea Hemnes Daybed in a nursery nook designed by SchappacherWhite Architecture D.P.C.

Another good use of Ikea Hemnes daybed in a all-white nursery by Melanie Stewart Interior Design.

I am not usually a big-box-furniture-store type of gal but this Casey daybed in white seems stylish and practical with trundle for extra storage.

Oh and this dreamy Hamish Daybed by Oly.

Similar one seen in Christine's Bijiou and Boheme nursery.

West Elm's Window daybed has a geometric motif, suitable for a modern nursery setting.

Or Bayview Daybed with Trundle.

 So nursery daybed, yes or no?
