As we near go time for baby #2, I’ve found myself scrambling to get the products that we need for the arrival of our second baby. Things are going to be different this time around – I’m going to be chasing around my 21 month old while adapting to a newborn, whereas with Maddie Grace I could devote my whole time and attention to her. That means this time around I need different things to help me balance my time between the two of them, and here’s what I’ve come up with:
Soft Baby Wrap
With Maddie Grace I hardly left the house the first few months (well the first year, really). But now she’s a crazy toddler. Neither of us are going to be okay with her being home all the time, so me and the new baby are going to have to figure out how to get out of the house, and a soft baby wrap seems to be the way to go. I love the colors and options that Happy Baby Wrap has to offer!
I have several baby seats already around the house waiting for our new little ones arrival. I’m particularly excited about trying out the 4Moms BounceRoo (see my full review on it here) but have several others as well. It will be nice to be able to put the baby in one in whatever room of the house I’m in with Maddie Grace so that I can give her some one on one time.
And let’s be specific here – I want the safest of the safe swaddles. Maddie Grace I could watch a lot more closely than I think I will this baby and I could always make sure she was safely swaddled. That’s why I love the Just Born Swaddle. It provides head and back support, has options for arms-in or arms-out support, and helps promote back sleeping so you have one less thing to worry about!
So same idea. Maddie Grace I was always right next to, especially when she slept. I would wake up throughout the night to check and make sure she was still breathing. I’m so glad I’ve gotten my hands on a Mimo Baby Starter Kit. Using Mimo you can check your babies sleep quality, respiration, sleep position, and skin temperature all from your phone.
Cute Nursing Cover
Once again, I hardly ever nursed Maddie Grace outside our home because I never really left the house. That’s not going to be so easy this go-around when we are out to lunch or on play dates. So I’ve gone ahead and ordered nursing covers like these ones that are cute, provide plenty of coverage, and can even double up as carseat or grocery cart covers.
What am I missing out? Anything I need to order ASAP?
