I didn't with either of my two. Neither of my kids grew any hair for two years though. Baldie babies! We used cloth diapers and had thick cloth wipes with a warm soapy solution on the changing table so they were wiped down regularly, easily. When they needed a thorough wash, I took a bath with them. It was much warmer for them, and had the added bonus of mama got to relax and play in the tub. I only did it though when DH was home and able to hand me the baby and to take...
I'm from Hudson, but there is another mama here (gurumama) who lives very near where you are looking. I'll go nudge her. Maybe I can get her to reply here.
Ikea sells quite small islands, like microwave cart sized. What is in all those cabinets? I have about the same number of cabinets and I was ruthless about putting things that I used less than once a week elsewhere. I have a small dresser with deep drawers that is in the basement with the TV on it. That is where I keep my lasagna pans, pie pans, placemats and napkins, and extra cassarole dishes. My crockpot in the basement too on a shelf under the stairs. I know you said...

We love our peds dentist in Sudbury on Route 20. My youngest is unvaxed (4.5) and it's never been mentioned. Let me know if you are interested.

This is for infants. A futon is ideal, instead of a standard thickness mattress if you are introducing this as a young barely crawling infant. Obviously a young toddler, it wouldn't matter how thick it was because they could safely get off a regular...
