This is our 2nd baby and I still have basically everything from my daughter. I've given a few things away that I have found to be unnecessary and as long as this baby is a girl we won't "HAVE" to buy anything however (teehee) I have my eye on a few things I would like this time around.
-Better swaddling blankets---aden & anais seem nice & big
-a lambskin would be nice for tummy time
-non-pink/purple clothes if baby isn't a girl
-a natural lotion--rather than Johnson's
-a new diaper bag
-a lovey for when they are older (my daughter got lucky as I had a stuffed monkey she made her own. with this babe i think i am going to try and find a homemade animal for them on etsy)
-a mattress and sheets for when babe moves to a floor bed.
-postpartum cloth pads
-Earth Mama recovery bath herbs
-breast pump-I had such a huge over supply with my daughter that I was able to pump and donate what i didn't use/need since i mostly stayed home with her.
-probably going to need new maternity clothes because i didn't lose all my previous baby weight. this time though i'm just gonna go to goodwill. I may just live in dresses and skirts. it'd be easier if i could just be naked though hahaha!
We still have our daughters car-seat however it's the infant style bucket ones but i'm wondering if just starting out with a convertible seat would be best. I also need to figure out if a wrap or sling is better for a newborn. I have both but my daughter HATED the wrap and I didn't have a sling yet. So we will see which I end up with! We have a bassinet that we will use and then probably move babe to a floor bed and then a toddler bed. This time around I wouldn't say we HAVE TO HAVE anything but man...there are a few things I think I will still buy simply because through trial and error I found a better solution.
