If you have any sewing skills, you could make a simple slipcover that stops an inch or two short of the floor. I would wrap the arms in batting to hide the metal frame, drape my fabric (inside out!) over the chair, folding and pinning wherever a seam was needed, then sew along the pinned lines. A seamstress should be able to sew a slipcover for less than reupholstering the whole thing, if sewing isn't your thing. Also, a lightweight fabric would show every lump and bump underneath, so choose something in an upholstery weight or double-up. And if you use an easy care fabric, you'll be able to throw it in the wash when life gets messy.

As a tall parent with an even taller partner, I find a changing table with pad and cover to be incredibly convenient and comfortable. Our curved changing pad helps keep our active little guy from wiggling right over the edge. The covers make it more comfortable for him in our cool, humid climate. A cloth diaper thrown on top wouldn't stay in place once he discovered free will and actually made it easier for him to slide around on the vinyl.

I tried carrying my things in a pouch inside the diaper bag for a few months, but realized that was kind of backwards for a working mom. Now there's a pouch of diapers in my bag and I couldn't be happier.

I like to give a copy of The Happiest Baby On the Block and a swaddling wrap/blanket, along with other items from the parents' registry for swaddling or soothing.
