Baby Stuff for Tall People

It turns out that of course there's a website specifically addressing "baby stuff for tall people," at

The big takeaways for me:

  • Don't buy a tall crib because they're all designed to be a the right height to NOT kill your baby if she manages to get out;
  • If you need to buy one thing for a tall papa, invest in a tall changing table -- that's where the back pain comes from;
  • When you're looking at strollers, look not only for a tall handle, but also for wide distance between the back wheels.  Tall parents tend to have longer strides, and so they tend to kick the wheels.
This was really helpful!  All these things that I've never had to think about ...
