    Nothing at the in laws as they live over an hour away and never go there. They come to our house.
    my son said its fine and thinks its a good idea... they live an hour away and will be coming for weekends etc...

    My parents in law have everything we would use at home. Cot, high chair, rocker, toys, nappies wipes etc. we have a small car so it saves us having to bring it all with us.

I'm always asking mil for a towel to put on her couch etc before I feed my little on because he is a spewer, so maybe a few cloth nappies / towels for cleaning up baby messes. A sheet or 2 for the cot, and a blanket is always handy.
    I so hope this baby doesn't take after its father ( my son) who was a projectile vomiter...I will need a truckload of spew cloths lol

    My mum who lives 10min from me only has a high chair as she minds the kids more often at our place. Plus mum is a co sleeper so cots are just clothes hampers for her.

    Not defensive, just matter of fact, my children dont see one set of grandparents, and my kids are not sad or unlucky etc and honestly the grandparents act like they couldnt care less. Just a fact of life for many people, no need to feel sad.

    I just guess I feel sad because I remember how great my grandparents were and I wish they were still around... I have such wonderful memories of my life with my grandparents and I am using those memories as a role model with my own grandchild/ren to be

    My parents only live 5 minutes away, but still have built up a collection of things for my kids for when we go there (which is quite often).

    When DS1 was born they bought a portacot which didn't get used all that much but was still handy. Mums also built up a collection of toys so there's plenty for both boys to play with now. She always has wipes and nappy sacks. I used to leave a few nappies there for DS1 but with 2 kids now it's easier just to bring everything in my nappy bag.

    Once DS started solids they bought a high chair for him to use there, and he's now upgraded to a booster chair that sits on a regular chair so the high chair can now be used by DS2. I've also left behind some cups, spoons etc for feeding and mum has bought a few plates, bowls and drink bottles.

    They have also taken great delight in buying different outside things for the backyard so the boys now have their own personal playground at their nanna and papa's which I think is lovely.

    My parents live within walking distance and have the full set up including a bed, port a cot, high chair, bouncer, carseat, stroller and all of the small things like nappies, wipes, bottles etc. We're there quite often so it definitely gets used.

    My ILs have a high chair and we just take things there when needed.
