Editor: Jen, this is a excellent question! Young babies need very little - a blanket or towel to lie or sit on and maybe a special toy that they only get to use at your house. If you expect this little one to be a frequent guest, I'm guessing his or her parents would be super grateful if you kept a portable high chair (like my favorite, the MeToo) in the closet. Babies can start using it around 6 months and through 2.5 years or so. A few books or small toys to use at your house would be fun for the child and would be less for their parents to haul around. Readers - what would you love friends or family to have when you and your kids visit?
