What are your mom/baby must haves..unprepared for my second child

Taking care of my 2 year old son, getting sub plans ready for the new school year and trying to enjoy the summer, i feel like I have not really "prepared" for my second child. So i need some help. If you were to go into labor now what are things you "must have" Thanks!

    I really want a moby wrap this go around. I think it is a must for me to be able to go to the grocery store or out with both kids.

    This is my second as well....my must haves are a swing and a rocking chair. I don't know how I could have survived those sleepless nights when nothing soothed my daughter except the swing. This time around I have a lot nicer swing so I'm excited to use it, hopefully this baby likes it as well!!

    Well lets see besides extra sleep, you will need clothes for LO, a place for LO to sleep, love and you . This is my fifth child so I also decided to get a swing and a booster seat/highchair combo.

    lots of burp cloths, bouncy seat, some kind of baby carrier (bjorn, moby etc). 

    Things I went out and bought for this baby:

    bra pads, breast milk storage bags, new bottle nipples, pacifiers, diapers, vaseline, pads for me, motrin for me.  I think that's about it.

    Ditto this!!!  I had another "moby like" wrap with DD but it wasn't stretchy. I actually bought a Moby last week when someone posted they were on sale on walgreens.com. I can't wait to play with it :)  I hope I remember how to wrap!!

    We are looking into getting a bassinet if needed. DD#1 and this baby DD#2 will share a room. If this baby wakes a bunch at night she will have to stay with us for a bit so she doesn't mess with DD#1's sleep.

    We also got an extra bouncer so we could have one on both levels of the house.

    I am going to make a Moby style wrap here so I can wear this baby when we are out and about. We didn't want to waste the money on a double stroller yet in case DD#1 starts to want to walk more and more. She is almost 3 so its a possiblity.
