Since we already have a baby, we won’t be buying too many things for baby #2….but I did learn some things since having Hudson, specifically what worked for us and what didn’t. And, I’ve discovered some new products these past two years that I would love to add to our routine!
First up is the Solly Baby Wrap. Hudson LOVED to be held….and I think without some type of wrap I would have lost my mind. With this baby, I’m pretty sure I’ll need to multi-task even more, so having my hands free is super important. We have the moby wrap but I never really loved it. I’ve heard so many great things about the Solly so it’s definitely on my wish list! Plus I love the stripe pattern…so cute.
I also learned about the Ollie Swaddle blanket via instagram and it has me super intrigued. Hudson loved to be swaddled and these blankets apparently are the best. And super soft. They only come in pink and blue so I guess I’ll have to wait to buy this one!
My new obsession is Bip and Bop necklaces, another fun discovery from instagram! During my trip to San Francisco last week I was missing Hudson big time. I have an “H” necklace I wear, but wanted another one that was a little bigger….so I pulled the trigger and bought this one. Bip and Bop sells individual charms so once we have this baby I’ll be able to add a charm to my necklace. Jon, if you are reading this (and you better be!) I just made this easy on you.
As many of you know, I breastfed Hudson for over a year. We didn’t do much feeding in public but I think that with a two year old in tow I’ll need to do it much more frequently. I’m in love with this cover from Covered Goods that also doubles as a scarf AND a carseat cover. This is already on it’s way to our house and I can’t wait to try it out!
As for diaper pails, I think we’ll probably need another one since it is unlikely Hudson will be potty trained by June. I sort of kind of am starting to hate the diaper genie. Several bloggers have recommended the Ubbi Pail so I’d like to give it a try. You don’t have to buy special bags for this one, which makes it a winner in my book.
Waterproof mattress pad. Need I say more? Hudson’s are pretty worn out, so I’m going to pick up a few of these, which my favorites of the brands we have.
We have the Baby Jogger City Select stroller and have LOVED it. I specifically got it knowing it would be easy to add a second seat. Totally one of our best baby purchases. So it looks like it’s time to add that second seat. Red please!
Hudson and I both love his monogrammed bunny from Peekawhoo. It’s soft and cuddly and makes a great baby gift. My friends at Peekawhoo are already standing by, waiting for a name so they can get the bunny to us. I can’t wait!
We love Freshly Picked moccasins….doesn’t everyone? They stay on baby’s feet and are super cute. I didn’t use these until Hudson was walking but I think they would make a great shoe for a baby. And stay on so much better than socks!
And finally, I’d really like to try the MamaRoo. Hudson loved his swing but this one does so much more! Plus it takes up less space which means more room for Hudson’s toys!
What’s on your baby #2 wish list?
