What did you have to buy for #2?

I know we'll need a pump b/c the one we borrowed died on user #3.  Obviously we'll need more burp clothes and a shole bunch of new clothes since it's different seasons.....

We'll need a bouncy seat b/c we didn't use one with Kalli....but what did you need for #2?  I want to start a list so we can buy things slowly.

    I didn't need to get birp cloths or bibs because I had a buttload of them from before.

    Things that we bought:
    Crib mattress (since A is still using his mattress in his toddler bed)
    A few outfits
    Diapers
    Bath products
    Infant meds
    Bottles (glass ones to eliminate all of the BPA questions)

    That's pretty much it, but it's only because I kept EVERYTHING from before and they're boys born in the same seasons (so the clothing is still the same).

    Check out the registry list at BRU.  Even if you don't register (some people do for #2 some people don't) it will give you an idea of all the things you might need for a baby (no matter what #) and then you can say I have this, I don't have this and I can do with out this.

    We have to buy everything again because we gave all our baby stuff to a friend who had an unexpected PG and was not in a position to get the supplies they needed.  Thank goodness we are in a position to be able to get the things we need.

    And though a lot of people don't register we did.  If someone wants to be generous and get us a present they can look to see what we need.  But we did not register for anything big. I think our most expensive item was $50.

    I thought I could get away with a single stroller and a sling - but I ended up buying a double last week.

    Another monitor

    More 'infant' toys

    I have two boys so I didn't need new clothes - thank goodness

    We moved DS into his big boy bed before #2 was born, so we did not need a new crib or mattress or anything else in the nursery (dresser, glider, etc.).  We were also able to "reuse" the nursery as is since it was gender neutral.

    I did get a new changing pad, since the other one was pretty flat and didn't look too comfortable anymore.

    I thought about getting a double stroller, but didn't and wouldn't have used it anyway since DS is very independent and "Strollers are for babies".

    I tried reusing bottles and just bought new nipples, but ended up getting new bottles because DD didn't like the ones I used with DS.

    I got a new humidifier (other one went with DS), piggy bank, baby book, some blankets (DS kept the ones that were "his"), a new diaper bag to take to daycare (needed to carry stuff for 2), new Diaper Genie (old one was beat to pieces) and of course clothes since we were having a girl and had all boy stuff (but she does wear some of his pants and his jammies).  I also got an Ultimate Crib Sheet.  Didn't have one with DS (don't think they existed yet!) but has been very nice to have now.

    We really got more stuff for #1 than for #2 since we moved him into a big boy room and needed to outfit that with a bed, dresser, book case, bedding, etc.

    Good Luck!
