As we start to plan for baby number two, I've been thinking about both the necessities and the new things that have come to market since we had Ethan back in 2012. It's really amazing how much can change in two short years...and of course I am a sucker for believing that we really need all the latest and greatest. Here are the top items we're considering:
Double Stroller: We currently have the BOB which we love, but if we're going to tote around two kiddos, I think I like the idea of this City Select Baby Jogger. I like how it stacks vertically versus having a double wide stroller. And it can also convert to a single stroller, which seems like a win-win to me.
Glass Bottles: We LOVED Dr. Brown's bottles with Ethan and I really like the idea of a glass version for the second baby.
Eco-Friendly Diapers: Who can resist the adorable patterns on the The Honest Co's diapers?
Extra Large Drying Rack: We have the Boon Grass, but now they make an extra large version, called the lawn...genius! And they also just came out with a narrow version, called the patch, for small spaces.
Double Video Monitor: We la la la love our video monitor and I'm debating getting the version with two cameras so we can keep an eye on both kiddos.
Baby Wrap: Everyone seems to be raving about the Solly Wrap...and I can hardly stand how cute those stripes are!
Easy Swaddle: We swore by Aden + Anais wraps with Ethan and wouldn't you know, that came out with an easy swaddle version not long after Ethan graduated out of them. For sure getting one of these bad boys!
Diaper Bag: Our last diaper bag is totally thrashed, so naturally we need a new one. I love this Marc by Marc Jacobs version. It's chic and gender neutral, which will be nice for Ryan to tote around as well.
So mamas, what's your experience with your second? Anything I'm missing?
