When we found out we were pregnant with Leo we splurged a little considering he was our very first baby … but this time around we made sure to save a few items that can be re-used for baby number TWO!! While we both want to support our economy we don’t want to just run out and buy new things that aren’t necessary!!
The one thing we ARE buying new for baby number two is a crib as Leo isn’t ready to move from his and I fell in LOVE with this oval one from Pottery Barn Kids which I think will look adorable in our little girl’s nursery!!
One of the best car seats, in my opinion, I love how light it is, the color (ok, yes I understand this is NOT important at all!!) that it fits with our Bugaboo strollers, and that it has a high NHTSA rating.
Hands down, our favourite stroller ever!! We had three but recently gifted the Cameleon to my cousin, Steph. Reason being is that we either use a stroller on vacay or in the city (for that we use the Bee!!). OR, we take the stroller on hikes or camping and for that, we use the Buffalo (this particular stroller isn’t available anymore)! However, we JUST ordered the DONKEY2 (pictured below!) so I’m going to have to get rid of one of our Bugaboo’s and I don’t know which one to lose! Justin won’t let me have a garage full of strollers … geesh!!! LOL!!
We took Leo home from the hospital in this blanket and we want to do the same with our little girl! However, I do want to buy another one of these blankets so when they are older, they can each take one with them for THEIR babies!! (queue waterworks) …
This is something you normally have to buy once but for some reason, we gave ours away … so while I do have to buy another wipes warmer, this is something I should have held onto in the first place as it can be used over and over and over again!!
I have the Medela electric breast pump as well which is amazing but I was always too lazy to deal with it, like making sure it was charged!! Which is why I loved the hand-held pump better! I just found it was super simple and user-friendly! Not to mention I’m always on the go!! I’ll be going back to work about 6 weeks after baby is born so I’ll want something small and easy to travel with and keep in the trailer at work and one at home! Cost wise – with the handheld you have more flexibility to have a few …
I was given the Blessed Nest nursing pillow as a gift from my best friend, Karissa and I fell in love with it! It’s filled with buckwheat hulls which makes it feel like a beanbag and it’s NATURAL … it’s so comfortable to use as it molds to your body and your babe’s bod and it’s not too hot or cool!
You all know my love for Fawn Design diaper bags!! They are faux leather, trendy, and functional!!! They have so many pockets and zippers which make carrying things around with you a breeze!! They actually just re-launched their FAWN 2.0 and I’m obsessed!
These are probably going to be hand-me-downs in the family (and extended family!) for some time to come!!
This is actually perfect timing as Leo doesn’t use his highchair anymore, he’s all about his step-up at the kitchen counter!!
I found this bottle warmer to be the easiest way to heat Leo’s milk without overheating it!!
With Leo, we had the Halo Sleep System and I liked it other than the fact that it was so heavy and bulky so if I needed to have a shower I needed another bassinet. For baby number two, I got a Moses Basket and then I will put our baby nest (Kaitlin’s friend Shayla makes these and she’s local!) in the basket, or on the kitchen counter. We used to use the Dockatot for Leo but these aren’t sold in Canada anymore so we’ve made the switch to the Baby Nest. These are also perfect if you’re going over to someone’s house or camping!!
There you have it!!! What are some of your favourite items that you were able to re-use with your little ones?? Share them with everyone below!!
