What kinds of baby furniture can I skimp on or get later? I don't anticipate moving into a big place. If we move to a 2 bedroom, the 2nd room is for Erik's kids to share when they're visiting on alternate weekends.
I know that I can use a bassinet for up to 6 months then switch to a crib.
I can change the baby on the floor, on the couch or anywhere with a clean flat surface instead of bringing baby to the changing table.
Do I really need a high chair? I think those bumbo seats that sit comfortably on a couch would work and it's compact and can set aside. Do they fit okay on a regular adult kitchen chair?
A highchair wouldn't be used until around 6 months anyway, and you could easily use the bumbo on the floor (not on the couch or table or counter because the baby could fall out/off), or we have booster seats that attach to our kitchen chairs - they are much smaller than a high chair and were MUCH cheaper. They have buckles and a tray. We use the buckles and tray at first, and now we just use them to help the kids sit at the table regularly
