I have 2 big boys (11lbs5oz and 10lbs4oz respectively), ages 3 and almost 4 months.

They both slept in a bassinet for about 3 months and transitioned to a pack n play on the bassinet setting. When my oldest started to roll, I moved the bassinet mattress down to the base.

Bouncers and low swings are a better option than anything tall. They have a larger range when it comes to weight and size limits, and when you look over and see a leg hanging's not quite as scary. I have this and a bouncer I got for $5 at a garage sale.

Someone suggested the Mei Tai carrier to me for big babies. It's been a lot more comfortable than the carriers with clasps.

The carseat we have is a Graco click connect with a compatible stroller. Whenever possible, we bring the stroller and lock the carseat into it. My oldest outgrew the bucket seat at around 9 months and has been in a convertible seat since. There are a lot of good convertible seats that grow with even a big kid. I have the Graco MySize65 - I'd get the 4Ever if it wasn't too big for my Honda Fit.

If all else fails, a comfortable floor mat in a safe place works great. I bought a big shaggy fleece rug. My baby loves it because he can see me and everything going on. When he gets more mobile, I can put a baby gate around it.

Lots of good advice here, but if you want to simply "put your child down", I LOVED the Leachco Podster. It's just a pillow, so he can't outgrow it. I moved that pillow all through the house. He took naps in it on the floor in every room, at grandma's house, there were even a few nights I put it in his crib because he slept SO WELL in it. We called it the magic pillow. That and a play mat with lots of shiny/jingly bits.

We had to ignore the weight limit on the swings (the things that rock them to sleep). They did wonders for all of us to get the sleep we needed.

At a certain point I just said " we are going to push this thing to the limit, if it is worth it." It never died. One swing we had in the livingroom just stopped swaying him when he got too big. The one in our bedroom kept on keeping on, so we made the most of it. We just transitioned to the crib after 11 months and he did great.

We had 2 different types of swings. 2 different brands. So maybe just change the swing out.

This one was great...

...but didn't handle the weight as well as this one:

> I don't know what we're going to do about the changing table. I guess his legs really don't need to fit on the pad, but there's now no good place for the wipes to go and ugh. First world problems.

We are using a dresser as a changing table (along with a contoured pad that is open at the top and bottom). We are using the top drawer for diapers/wipes/cremes/etc. We got a nice sturdy one off Craigslist and painted it to match his room.

He's longer than the pad, so I just make sure his head and butt aren't off the table. Here's hoping that by the time he's longer than 32" from his head to his butt... he's potty trained!

I knew seat height wasn't an issue, just the back or sides of the potty + weight of kiddo. I was shown this one, and bought it.

Safety 1st Gotta Go Now Folding Travel Potty and Trainer, Blue/White

It's awesome that I can bring it while on the go to keep training consistent. Then use it On the toilet for his little butt

I'd get a push type Walker or a play table he can stand at. I feel like at 6 months old you'd get a lot more use out of something like that rather than a seated type bouncer. He will be on the move soon and not want to be contained. Table walker

My oldest hated potty seats and small potties because he was always too big for them. We switched to the potty seat that is attached to your regular toilet seat and he was much happier with that. It didn’t slide around like other seats that sit on the regular toilet, and it flipped up and was held in place by a magnet so adults can also use the toilet.

This one is similar but not the exact one we used.potty seat

gb Pockit Stroller, Capri Blue

Ive been looking at these recently. They are supposed to be taller than regular umbrellas, I think target also carries them.

I have been going back and forth about getting one but they are a little expensive for me and we dont use strollers very often.

This is the foldable travel potty seat we bought for my older son, who still occasionally uses it now (as an actual four year old) with no trouble. Very easy to carry in the younger one's diaper bag.
