Well, if you do think you'll stick around for the first 6 months of the child's life, you might want an area with a rug or mat area. You'll also probably want a designated area for feeding- a glider, rocker, or just a comfortable chair. Also, designate a small space for a bouncer of some kind. In the latest issue of Cookie mag, our own Maxwell recommends the Oeuf Lounger.
In terms of the other smaller things to register for, we like the list that Rookie Moms came up with.
Readers, particularly those with experience in small spaces- give us your suggestions.
