moms of 2: what did you buy?

so, i said this in the BOTB post yesterday but typing it out really got me thinking about it. it looks like i am going to need way more than i thought. i was so excited to just have to shop for new bedding and clothes, but i am thinking there are some necessities that i am going to have to budget for.

so, what everyday stuff did you end up buying for #2?

  • I bought EVERYTHING girlie with Sarah so I ended up having to buy just about everything  Plus Sarah is still in her baby bed, but even if she wasn't I'm not sure I would have him in the PBK white sleigh bed.

    I needed another baby monitor, diaper champ, bed/bedding, new pacifiers, blankets, burp clothes, bouncy chair, car seat, stroller, diaper bag....that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

     Wow.  I'm not a mom of two yet but we honestly hadn't planned on buying much of anything.  I saved everything from Orion and because we didnt' know boy/girl we kept everything gender neutral.  We are buying Orion a toddler bed sometime in the spring so we can reuse the crib and I'll probably buy another set of bedding but other than a few small things I can't think of anything we'll need. 

  • A few more bottles

    New pacifiers

    Pink Boppy cover

    Pink hooded towels

    Pink washcloths

    Girl sleepers and onsies

    Baby wash

    Mylicon

    Infant Tylenol

    Another monitor

    Girl receiving blankets

    New sleep positioner

    New bathtub

    Girl bibs

    New bottle brush

    Baby hangers

    Girl activity mat

    Bumbo play tray

    New bedding for girl

    New changing table covers (pink and ecru)

    New crib sheets for girl

     

  • We are another ultra-girlie baby gear family.  So far, we intend to buy:

    -- Toddler bed and mattress for Avery

    -- New bedding/decor for Deux

    -- Car seat if Deux is a boy

    -- Double stroller

    -- clothes,  blankets, burp cloths, bibs if Deux is a boy

    Luckily, we have some gender neutral stuff - bouncy seats, exersaucer, bumbo, so we don't have to buy that again.  We don't use a monitor with Avery any more since we can hear her if she cries, so we'll use the monitor with Deux.  We also just take poopy diapers straight to the garbage outside, so we don't use a diaper genie.

     If we have a girl, we are pretty set for now.  We'll eventually need another high chair or we'll just get a booster for Avery.

    We didn't buy much of anything either.  We bought a crib, because Sam was still in his (but it was really inexpensive--like $99).  We reused Sam's bedding, because it was gender neutral.  We used Sam's room for changing diapers for both of them, so no new diaper changer or diaper champ needed.

    Really, other than clothes, we just bought more bottles, burp cloths, bibs, etc.  We also had to buy new onesies and infant clothing because we donated all of Sam's stuff to Katrina evacuees.

  • So far not much just:

    BPA free bottles

    pacis

    bottle brush

    a few clothes

    More swaddle me blankets

    Double jogging stroller

    second car seat base

    If we had a girl we would have bough new bedding.  DH cheaped out on me and said no to new bedding because he was a boy.

  • We are not planning on much.  We already have all of the little baby gear in gender neutral colors, so we are good to go with that.  We will still get the basics, that others have listed like pacifiers, bottle brush, etc.   
  • Um, only a video monitor with 2 cameras.  Everything else we're reusing.

    OH, and some bottles when I was on The Great Bottle-That-Julia-Will-Take Hunt.

As far as basics--onesies, socks, baby mylicon, baby tylenol, new brush, new bathtub, new towels, sheets, a double stroller and a double jogging stroller,  some new blankets, bottles, pacifiers, diapers, hangers, baby shampoo and baby wash.
