2nd time round

Post by Kerryw on Mon 7 Oct 2013 - 10:48

HI

Starting to look at what I have and what I need.

is there anything you added to what you already had 2nd time round?
what did you buy new?

I am going to use the boys car seats and cot but have anew pram (obviously a double for one baby is over kill)

but not sure about other things?

new bottles obviously and dummies

I would like to get a wrap to carry the newborn but not sure where to look or what to try. I had no luck with the baby sense sling I always felt I was going to snap one of thier necks.

Kerry I was so bad, I bought everything new. I didnt believe in 2nd baby having 2nd hand things. But I downsized my list hugely.... u realise what u never use the 1st time around. Cot I bought 2nd hand cos it was a good deal. I bought new bottles and dummies etc. I did have 2 of Rachels TT bottles that I still use, just bought new teats. I hated my sling, didnt feel secure at all.
I bought a new Pram with car seat (travel system one) but I use Rachels old car seat for Emma now cos she is forward facing. Things like bath seats, linen, etc I bought all new.

my personal opinion: replacing everything is a waste BUT I believe every child, second or 10th deserve to have new things. Things of D that I used with W:
cot (replaced the mattress)
Camping cot (replaced mattress)
Monitor
Compactum
Pram & Snug & Safe
Bath seat
Nappy Bin
Bumbo seat

so basically all the big things..

Things I replaced & added:

New bottles, teats & dummies/dummy chains
sippy cups/ feeding bowls, spoons etc
clothes
blankets
linen
towls
new room decor/theme
ew stage 2 car seat
new toys
mattresses
babysense sling (waste, like TT said always had that not secure feeling)
new cot mobile
bottle warmer & sterilizer
new towel nappies/burp cloths

basically all the more personal items got replaced

I kept the big things, pram, cot, nappy bin, bumbo seat (we bought a neutral colour from the get go) steriliser, breast pump (I just bought myself a second one on junkmail - well sterilised before use as the one I used is off the market and I LOVED my breast pump - so I could express both sides at once)

We replaced the "personal" things like Lilly says. Bedding, clothes, I used some of Joshua's old, still perfect vests (white) and a few unisex outfits. Bottles, new, as his was all in blue. I got a microwave steriliser that I didn't have with him for travel and when the kids went to grannies over the weekend and such.

I also felt she needed her "own" stuff, but the expensive stuff we kept.

I am just waiting for the scan on monday then I can start planning Smile

I have lots of blankets from the boys
but some new clothes I think will be nice - especially the 6-12 months ones did not survive the boys LOL
I would love a cot but it seems a waste - but will see what I can find 2nd hand.
Towels - yes maybe some new ones would be nice - was just going to use the boys ones.
I am thinking of trying cloth nappies this time but I think I will wait and see how I cope first.
I never had one of those fancy bins - not sure if they are necessary?

Ya I kept all Rachels blankets, its quite special actually. Clothes we bought all new but kept 3 or 4 of Rachels cute dresses etc that Emma can wear.
Do u have a camp cot? I bought my car 2nd hand for R 1500 not bad, U get them at good prices 2nd hand.
Towels - I find hooded towels a waste. I just use normal towels. So keep the hooded ones for the early days but dont buy more.
The nappy bins? I LOVE mine, still use it.
