Crib and changing table. We didn't really buy much else to begin with, but those definitely didn't get much use.

I figure my little one will go through that phase, especially as a lot of children start to overemphasize girl items and boy items at some point when they're defining their gender. I just plan to continue offering lots of alternatives. We're raising her in a gender neutral way. But to us, that means that both stereotypical boy items and stereotypical girl items are both completely acceptable. I do have limits when it comes to toys that might harm her self-image, but we'll come to that when we get there. For now, I'm dealing with people who don't think a baby girl should ever wear blue even though it's just one of the many colors in her wardrobe (including pink).

I just used my normal set up. I had a chair with arms, and a breastfeeding pillow. I put the baby in a cradle hold, and then when she was all set up and happy, I would move the hand supporting her to the keyboard. The way the chair and pillow were set up, the table helped act as an extra support. Took a few weeks to find a really comfortable position that was also really supportive and allowed use of both of my hands. But once I did, I was able to do all the stuff I needed to at the computer while my baby would nurse to sleep/for comfort.

@Asokks00 It's divisible by 4, and not by 100 unless it's also divisible by 400. So 2100 would not be a leap year even though it's 4 years after the last leap year. This is because the duration of a solar year is slightly less than 365.25 days

I agree with Karen_Es. I'm really into being gender neutral, and that kitchen would be lovely for any gender. Obviously whatever fits the current look of the real kitchen is best, and this play version seems to fit in very well. But really, it's not so much what the kitchen looks like as what the little one sees when she's in the kitchen (is the mom doing all the work or does the dad love being in the kitchen too). I know I want a little kitchen like this in my home so that my little one can cook with her father.
