Take sinks for example. In America, you have all kinds of different sink sizes to choose from. The one in Petra's parent's house in the States was big enough to bathe Enoh in when he was 4 months old last Christmas. (The American ingenuity that produced a bathtub for the sink is a topic for another post.)
Whereas the one in our house in Croatia is not big enough to bathe 1 week old Ian. (The Croatian disbelief that you would even think about bathing your child in a sink is a topic for another post.) So Ian took his first bath on the kitchen table instead.
