I only have the one kid, and he only has 4 presents under the tree. 3 are wrapped normal sized gifts, and one is an activity center and will be covered in a blanket.
I would make sure the gifts are "fair" between the 4yo and 9yo, and make sure it didn't look like the baby got any more than them, but I definitely don't think you need to get the baby more just so the 4&9yo see that everyone got the same amount. If they ask, you can explain that the baby doesn't need as much as they do or something like that (I'm sure a STM has better language there).
Corinne is getting 5 presents from us (1 is a package of about 5 books) and 3 from Santa, but we're on the overboard side of the spectrum.
I agree with pp, just make sure the baby doesn't have more than the older kids and I think you'll be fine.
