My MIL (walking distance away) has the full set up for bubs. Bub isn't due until March and she has gone nuts.. She has more baby stuff than us! While it is nice shes so excited I wish she hadn't bought so much as we only live around the corner.

Both sets of grandparents have a portacot, high chair, spare nappies, drink bottle and toys.

Mum has a Porta Cot, nappies, wipes, our high chair is over there, toys, outdoor toys, cups, bowls, plates etc. MIL has a highchair, some inside and outside toys

Yes, definitely a great idea. Mum has cot, high chair, bouncer, nappies and wipes. So much easier when I spend the day there and I don't need to worry that I might run out of nappies.
Also when I was working when DD1 was a baby and mum looked after her she had some little sachets of formula too in case I ended up having to stay late at work and hadn't packed enough.
If you feel you may be overstepping the mark, just ask the parents if they would like it. I would say they will really appreciate it.

It's a great idea. My parents & the ILs both have portacots& highchairs. Saves so much space in the car when go to visit them.
Maybe ask to make sure but we have found it to be very helpful.

My mum has a portacot, spare little cot mattress to put on the floor, some toys and car seats at her house. We live interstate so it makes it easier for us not have to travel with this stuff when we visit.
Don't think you're being control more helpful

My Mum has books and toys. The boys don't stay there often because she is busy working. We take everything they need.
My Dad is the same.
DF'S parents have a room for the boys which has a bed for DS1, cot for DS2 (which MIL picked up second hand along with the mattress and I am glad we don't use it often), they also have toys, a booster seat and a car seat for DS1.
I found it more helpful for MIL to buy us a highchair for our house than hers. She bought a portable one which we would take to hers and it was a fantastic present.

My parents have a porta cot, high chair, toys, wipes and baby bath.
I think the less parents have to cart with them the better so you're doing a thoughtful and helpful thing

My parents have nothing because they are 3 hours away. Mil has nothing because she smokes inside and I hate ever going there and my sister who my ds stays with occasionally has very bad OCD and can't even stand when I leave the porta cot etc at her house. Which means we carry everything with us.
I think it is a good idea to have some basics if you will be babysitting or having a baby at your house often.
