I use sposies for the first bit because the washer/dryer is in the basement and I don't have the energy for the stairs. plus, we usually have to use premie dipes for the first 2 weeks.
I'm feeling much the same, but for the opposite reason. I have a girl and I bought way too much, so I don't need anything for a girl, but if we have a boy we'll need clothes and stuff.
However there are some things I'll need no matter what. I definitely want to get a double stroller even if I'm wearing the baby it's nice to have a safe place to set the baby down if I need to when we're out and about. I also want to get a bucket carseat this time. I don't think we'll take it out of the car much, but if the baby is sleeping and we're somewhere where I won't be walking around I don't want to wake him/her up and resettle him/her in the sling. We never had one with dd, but I might feel a greater need for convenience with #2. I also want a new ring sling because the first one I had was super frumpy and I didn't like it. I ended up borrowing a friends Maya wrap which I loved, but she wanted it back, so now I don't have one. I guess there are quite a few things I want for this baby. I really wanted an amby for dd, but didn't get one and I'm undecided on whether to get one for this babe. I think I may want a cosleeper also just because the bed is already really crowded with me, dh and dd and I just want a safe place to put the baby so s/he isn't squished by a squirmy, active toddler.
