As of right now we have the car seat and bases, changing table, a rock n play, a swing, a bouncer and a stroller. I think that is basically all the big items. So now on to items we will need with baby #2.
1. New CribInitially we weren't going to buy another crib but I recently found out Kinley's crib transitions into a full bed so we are just going to buy another 4n1 crib for the baby. I knew her crib transitioned to a toddler bed but I didn't know it went to a full. Needless to say I was super excited!!
2. Double Stroller
I recently bought the graco ready to grow double stroller from someone who had only used it a handful of times. I think we will stick with that for a double stroller for now.
3. Solly Baby Wrap
I really really want a Solly wrap for this baby. I didn't use a wrap with Kinley. We used the Ergo and the newborn insert. I LOVE the Ergo but I didn't love it with a newborn. I have heard such amazing things about the Solly, so that is definitely on my list!
4. Aden and Anais Blankets
These blankets are the absolute best! They are light weight and breathable but provide enough warmth when need be. I have been trying to not buy Kinley more of these because really how many blankets does one kid need...BUT they are amazing! So I will be adding to our collection.
5. Breast Pump
This one I am torn about. I used the Medela Freestyle with Kinley and I still have it but I am wondering if I need to get a new one. I used that thing a LOT! Does anyone have any suggestions on that? Do I need a new one? I loved the convenience of the freestyle but my boobs didn't respond to it well. Maybe that is just because my boobs hated the pump. Could totally be! There was definitely a love/hate relationship with that thing!
Sophie is a must! Kinley loved Sophie from the beginning! Hers was used a lot so I will definitely be getting the baby another one.
7. New Nursing Cover
I had a few of these with Kinley but I didn't love any of them. I am looking at the Milk Snob covers. They look wonderful and the reviews are great!
8. Halo Sleep Sacks
Kinley really loved being swaddled after we got through the initial fight. We will definitely be investing in some more of these because they get full of everything pretty fast! Everything to include poop, pee, coffee, lots of spit up and whatever else you can imagine.
9. New Clothes
Of course the baby will need new clothes! Kinley was a winter baby and this baby will be a spring baby. So the clothes will not be in the right season unfortunately. I am sure some of her clothes will get re-used but the majority will be new clothes. The new baby has to have something new, right :)
I didn't put a humidifier in Kinley's room for a few months after she was born and after I did I was very happy I did. I always love having a humidifier in our room so I thought the kiddos would too. Though to be honest it is getting pretty nasty so I need to get a new one. Does anyone have any suggestions on humidifiers they love?
So besides the known diapers and wipes those are my 10 things we will definitely be getting for this next baby. If anyone has any other must haves please share!! I like to plan and start saving so all this doesn't drain our bank account at once :).
Hope everyone is having a great start to the week! And of course one cute pic from the girl that wanted every peanut M&M pack at the grocery store yesterday. I know it is blurry and I am sorry but it is too funny!
