Items to buy for baby #2


I'm having another boy and have most of the necessities for baby...
Carseat, carseat cover, stroller, Moby wrap, blankets, clothes, socks, wash cloths, towels, baby soap/shampoo/lotion, diaper cream, toys, bassinet, a swing, a rock n play, breast pump.

What are some items to remember for a 2nd baby, while a newborn?
I'm thinking I'll still need to get nursing pads, vitamin D drops, diapers, wipes, (cloth diapers didn't work out with my son and sold most of them..), breastmilk storage bags. Might try different pacifiers and bottles/nipples after 2 months..but my son never took any..
What am I missing or you'd recommend?

I'm getting bottles for this baby as I want to start combination feeding around 6 weeks. My son never ever accepted a bottle or dummy either, I think I left it too late to try him on a bottle and it would've been nice to sometimes have the option to.

Remember toiletries and a baby bath if you need one.

A baby carrier/sling/wrap if you plan to use one. I'll be putting baby in one for things like dropping my son off/picking him up from school - we live right across the road so won't be worth putting her in the stroller for that.

My opinion? Nothing, now. Wait. If you decide your baby has a need that isn't being met by the things you currently have, buy it then... chances are you'll find a thing or two that you (or we ) wouldn't even think of now. That's how it's gone for ALL of my subsequent babies, anyway.

Yes, I plan to wear baby a lot more. I have a Moby wrap, ring sling, chimparoo wrap, Ergo, and Lilibaby lol!!
Also, will try bottles and pacifiers more...

Nappy bags/sangenic system whatever you are going to use. To be honest apart from nappies/lansinoh/breast pump stuff there isn't much I'm going to buy at this stage as I want to see what we do or don't need as we had so much stuff with number 1 that we never used!

Number one thing for me is batch cooking, I had a freezer full of prepared meals the first time around and it kept us going for ages, best thing I ever did as we would have ended up on ready meals otherwise!

I only have bottles, formula, pacifiers, diapers, and wipes on my list. Oh and a crib mattress. Outside of that I have it left over from ds or didn't need it with him so why bother this time..

Sounds like your pretty set I've been thinking same, still have our pram and crib from when our toddler was a baby, still in excellent condition so no need to buy them again. Have had to buy a new Moses basket, mattress and clothes/blankets etc as we have a DD and this baby's a boy. We can use some of the white cellular blankets again etc but have a lot of pink/lemon etc so bought some new ones as well. Still need to buy a baby bath as we have ours away to a friend when lo outgrew it.
The only thing I'd suggest you could buy is a new mattress for the bassinet and a baby bath?

You will have the same age gap as me. My boy is now 7 week old and I have now gone out to buy a double pram, a buggy board and a moby wrap. I didn't anticipate how difficult it would be to get out and about with a newborn and a toddler and it was so stressful holding toddlers hand and pushing the pram when the toddler wants to nosey at everything and ends up walking sideways and sometimes u just need to get somewhere and not go slow.
