How to Prepare a Small Space for a New Baby

Babies are small and really don’t need much. Sure, our society today will make you believe that you’re not a good parent unless you have a huge nursery with all the best things and decorated like a fantasy land.

I’ll call it a bulkhead for the purposes of this article. You can start to see fading at this point. We were told by the RV mechanic that conducted our initial orientation that we should wax it twice a year, which is what we did.
