    Just curious what others are doing :)

    With number 2 I want to get him/her a newer crib. With my son we didn't have alot of money so we got a cheap crib that is only a crib. Now he's been sleeping on the floor on a mattress til' he is use to not rolling out of bed and we're going to buy him a bed.

    For number two I want to buy a new crib. One that converts to a bed later. But I feel like I should be spending money on other things lol. sooo just curious how many buy new things for #2

    THe other reason is I feel the second should get as much new stuff as the first!

    i dont have a number 1 already but i can see your point about the crib/cot if you buy a cot/bed your babys number 2 will have a bed ready without another new expence so it serves to reasons and lasts longer for money ive been lookin at cotbeds rather than just cots....


    i think if i had 1 already id use alot of the old stuff if the same sex but maybe new cot, pushchair

    With my second i kind of had to buy most things new , As my first was a girl and literally everything was Pink lol .
    I still used the same Cot , Just a new Matress and new bumper set etc . Same pram and car seat But it was in fab condition .
    This time on number 3 had to get everything again as i had gotten rid of everything was planning no more babies lol .Some times just new things to go with old things is a nice idea :) . Its ur choice hun . xxx .

    When planning number 1 i decide not to go too 'blue' so that when i had my second one all i had to buy was a double pram , bottles and pink clothes. Don't feel guilty about not spending the same on number 2 just think about the extra you can spend on them when there actually here x

    Well his carseat will be reused for new baby as it was only used for 6 months, but the stroller there is not a chance it can be reused. I'm afraid it could die any day lol, plus I need a ride and sit stroller so my son can stand on it and baby can sit.

    And I really want to buy more baby stuff :) I'm kinda hoping for a girl to buy the cute clothes too. Right now I have a boy and I have two nephews - LOTS of boys lol.

    I'm actually hoping I can reuse as much as possible! I will need to get all new baby clothes b/c for some reason I got rid of all my son's baby clothes. But we still have his crib, car seats, pack n play (which is blue but I'll still use it even if we have a girl), strollers, high chair, and various other baby gear. If I can get away with just getting diapers and clothes I'll be a happy camper! :happydance:

    Oh, and this time around I do plan on getting me a really cool diaper bag. I used a backpack last time, which was great, but I'm feeling the need to be a bit more stylish this time!

    I gave all of my sons baby clothes away to my nephews. So even if I have a boy he'll need new clothes :p
