I can’t be one of those parents who wearily recycles clichés about how hard it is to have small children in the home. I can’t be one of those parents because my children were all remarkably easy. They slept at night. They ate well. They worked through each little infant hiccup without it stretching our nerves beyond their elastic limit. I was blessed. Our children were a blessing.

One of the most used pieces of equipment in our home when the kids were little was the baby playpen. We had a couple of them in different locations so that we still had the use of one when we were visiting grandparents.

If you are in the process of adopting a new child, congratulations! Parenthood is a big step in life, and it is certainly a rewarding one! In order to make the transition from being childless to being a parent, it is a good idea to buy ahead of time as many of the baby’s supplies as possible.

A wooden high chair is a product that you can purchase now even if you do not know the sex of your future child. Wood is unisex, and more importantly, it fits in with nearly any home decor scheme. Unlike plastic chairs that may be lightweight and easily tipped, a wooden high chair is strong, sturdy and heavy. This means the chair is not going anywhere unless you are the one moving it.

Wood is easy to clean, whether it is spilled food you are wiping up or a child’s errant crayon artwork. High-quality high chairs can be used for multiple children or even passed along to new families once your own children are too old to use them.
