I have been getting a ton of questions about what items that we’re buying for baby #2 and I wanted to share everything on our list! There are a few things that we are re-purchasing, like a new diaper pale, and others that I’m excited to try thanks to some of my favorite mama recommendations. 

Puj Flyte Bathtub – There are a few things I learned about bathing a newborn. 1. The big tubs are completely unnecessary. 2. I prefer a tub that fits in a sink so I’m not leaning over a bathtub. 3. It is important to find a tub that is not prone to mold/mildew. Exactly why I’m drawn to this Puj Flyte tub that my friend Becky recommended. It is phthalate free, bpa free, and lead free. It does not absorb water, making it mold/mildew free and hands easily to dry. It also folds up for travel! I’m excited to try this.

Medela Freestyle Breast Pump – I used and loved this breast pump with Charlie and just restocked on all of the tubes and spare parts for baby #2. I loved how efficient and easy this is to use. It is battery operated so it doesn’t have to be plugged in (making it easier to pump on the go) and all of the pieces are easy to wash. 

DockATot – Have any of you tried this? I’ve heard amazing things. We don’t plan to co-sleep with the baby but I think this might be a good option for just general naps around the house. I’m still trying to decide what we will have Charlie sleep in in our room. Charlie slept in the Fisher Price Rock and Play for 6 weeks (I know I’ll receive backlash from people but that’s what worked for us) next to my side of the bed before we moved him to his crib. I’m also considering the SNOO. I’d love your thoughts!

Baby Jogger City Mini GT Double Stroller – I’m still torn about an easy double stroller that can handle to be beat up a bit! We have the Nuna Pipa Infant Car Seat which we will use again so I need a stroller that is compatible. We have and love the City Mini GT so it seems appropriate to get the double. Any other favorite double strollers that you guys love? 

Fawn Diaper Bag – I still use and love this bag for Charlie and will continue to use it for both of my kiddos. I love that it can be worn as a crossbody or backpack, it is shallow enough that you can find everything and it has a bunch of pockets for each organization. Plus, it’s cute and stylish!

Bjorn Soft Mesh Bouncer – I had meant to order this over and over again for Charlie but never did! Charlie had terrible acid reflux and this chair came highly recommended for gassy babies who had stomach issues. It keeps them upright, fold flat for easy storage and it supposed to be crazy comfortable. 

Babyletto Lolly Crib – This is the crib we ordered for the new nursery! I can’t wait to share more with you. We have some fun projects happening for this room. I designed Charlie’s nursery without knowing if I we were having a boy or a girl and it has been fun to tackle this room in a full boy mindset. It is still pretty neutral and I love the natural wood/white combo of this crib. Charlie’s crib is a grey wood and I love the texture it brings to his room. We are adding a bunch of different texture elements to the new nursery. 

Plus, a few of our tried and true favorites that we still use for Charlie – like our Dohm sound machine, DoTerra Petal diffuser (read more about how we use essential oils here), a Drop Humidifier, Mustela baby products, Milkbarn jammies and Little Unicorn bath towels
