I am so not ready for another baby. Not in the least. I am still recovering (mentally and spiritually) from pregnancy, labour and delivery and the first 3 months of baby Charlotte's life. :) All joking aside - I have no clue if we are going to have another baby. I can't imagine only having one, or Charlotte not knowing what it is like to have a little brother or sister. I have always thought that if I did have kids, I would have at least 2. My husband is set on just having one - mainly for financial reasons - but we will have to see what the future holds I guess. I must say, I would love another maternity leave. This is the best time in my life so far - enjoying every minute of it and am so grateful.
But if we do decide to have another baby, and are blessed to have one, these are on my wish list of items I would love to try!
Fisher-Price Newborn Rock n' Play Sleeper
I think there was a just a recall on this item for mold but those recalls don't ever deter me (just be sure to Google it if you already own this product). We used a basinet for our little one but she never really got used to it so I moved her into a little bed next to me and that only worked sometimes. She spent her first 2 months sleeping on me or swaddled and propped up in a breastfeeding pillow. For Maybe Baby #2, I would like to try a different approach and get something like this Rock n' Play Sleeper. And if it works, it is easy to move from room to room, and easy to travel with. Anyone use this product and did your little one sleep in it?
This is the "it" product for 2014. Charlotte never took to her swing or vibrating seat but if we have baby number 2, I would love to try a MamaRoo - swinging and vibrating all in one. I enter every contest I come across to try and win one of these. And since the majority of our baby gear is second hand (grateful) it would be fun to have something brand new the next time around.
I had to buy my friend a baby shower gift so I asked my prenatal class momma friends what baby product they can't live without (I actually don't use a lot of products - we have a ton of stuff but I rarely use most of it). One friend said that she loves her Woombie Donut and after looking into it, I wish I had one myself. It's basically a travel bed for your infant. You can use it to set your baby down in a comfortable space when you need your hands free. They say not to use it to sleep in but I would have no problem with it - and would probably take it everywhere with me. I will for sure be looking at one of these in the future.
Are there any items that you think are must haves for "maybe baby" #2?
Are you a 1st Time Mom and trying to figure it out as you go along too? Feel free to leave me a comment with any questions and I will be more than happy to get back to you. Thanks for reading!
