    My dad has a high chair and toys - he only lives 5 minutes away so its no trouble to take stuff with us.
    My in laws live 2 hours away and they have toys, portacot, highchair and baby toys for the pool.

    My IL's live 6 hours away. They bought a brand new cot for DD and mattress with sheets. When we are going there she asks what DD needs and buys them. They also have a high chair and pram so when we fly up there we don't have to lug ours around! We really appreciate it all.

    I think it's a great idea! And very thoughtful.

    My parents have: cot, change table, toddler bed, 2 highchairs (just cheap Ikea ones which are the best anyway!), heaps of toys, a cheap Target double stroller, plates/bib/cutlery for kids and I'm sure other stuff I've forgotten. I go over there very regularly and it's so helpful. They also have grandchildren that live interstate who come and stay for weeks at a time. I provide packs of nappies to leave at their house.

    I think at the least a high chair, somewhere to change the baby, and as added extras a portacot and somewhere to put the baby down like a bouncer or playmat and a couple of toys. I wouldn't bother with nappies because they will always have their own in a nappy bag, and it will probably be a waste to have your own as the baby will grow out of them before they get used.

    My parents have a port-a-cot set up and that's all.

    They have toys, bath stuff etc.

    I have a "my little seat" as a portable high chair.

    I just use a bed with my roll out change mat for changing. And I leave a handful of nappies and wipes there.

    I've asked my dad to clean and restore the old highchair we used, he used and my nan used its 83 yrs old and beautiful wood. I told my parents i would buy a portacot for their place, and leave some toys and stuff there as well.
