  1. Plastic ones with a scoop, like the Baby Bjorn one. You don't need that until they start solids -- and then you'll definitely want it. However, many babies hate them so you might want to hold off on getting many. http://www.amazon.com/BABYBJORN-Soft-Bib-Pack-Yellow/dp/B000CSBP3G/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1389161181&sr=8-5&keywords=bibs
I don't know if there's really a major difference in high chairs. But for what it's worth, we got the Stokke Tripp Trapp. It converts into a chair as they get older, and it's not hideous or too bulky. It comes in a bunch of colors.
Gayle M I also like that when you remove the tray, the baby (or toddler) still can't climb right out. On many high chairs, the tray helps to lock the kid in (there's no upper part on the leg holes). This is a bit scary with a young toddlers. You need to take off the tray because it's filthy and bring it over to the kitchen -- leaving your kid unattended in a place they can fall.

Gayle M Project Wish List (& Other Ideas)
There are projects that I personally wish I had.
  • Consulting/Mock Interview Scheduler Platform
Similar to Evisors.com. I want a platform to be able to manage my mock interviewers / resume reviews.
A user views the different mock interviewers and selects one. He can request some specific time slots, and then the interviewer confirms one of these. Once confirmed, payment is taken and phone numbers/emails are exchanged.
Part of the pay goes to the mock interviewer and part is taken by CareerCup. [If this is difficult, the system could just track how much the mock interviewer is owed and I can pay them separately.]
After the interview, the user can review the mock interviewer.
The system should also be able to support resume review, in a similar way.
(I am willing to pay for this if someone can complete it. Talk to me if you're interested.)
  • Wordpress Plugin -- "Suggest Edit"
Similar to Quora, allow users to suggest edits (spelling changes) on a wordpress blog post. This should work like Quora's does. Someone clicks "Suggest Edits" and then can edit my blog post. I can then "approve" their edits as-is or continue to edit it.
  • iPhone App - Idea Tracker
An "idea tracker" mobile app which lets me very, very quickly add a new startup idea to a list. The list should sync with Google Spreadsheets so that I can edit it from my computer too.

I've published three books, two which were self-published and one which was traditionally published.
  • The Google Resume. Traditionally published through Wiley, which is arguably the biggest / best publisher for this genre.
