Yes, seal it. Dewaxed shellac makes a perfect sealer and allows the stain to be put on more evenly. Pine is very blotchy because of its resin content. The shellac will seal in the resin and allow you to get a more uniform coverage with the stain. Looks like a great job you did on the changing table. I’m sure they will be very happy with it.
