Must-Haves For Baby Number Two

Monday, November 1, 2021

One of the many joys of having a second baby is being far more relaxed while making preparations. We were so lucky to get everything we needed for Eloise before she was born so we didn't have to buy much this time around. I did make a few purchases because I wanted some updated items for our baby. While there is nothing wrong with boys wearing/using pink, I was really looking forward to getting lots of blue in since it's one of my favorite colors. So here's some of the things we purchased:

1. Uppa Baby Vista 2 Double Stroller in Declan {Oatmeal Color}
This was one of the first purchases we made. I wanted a double stroller that was somewhat light. When Eloise was born I bought the Bugaboo Donkey {which is beautiful by the way} but could not handle the weight so I ended up getting rid of it. This time around I did a lot of research and decided on the Uppa Baby. So far it has been great! Love the height of the stroller and all the storage space. Looking forward to using it as a double once baby arrives. 

2. Little Giraffe Luxe Baby Blanket
Found this brand at Nordstrom while shopping for a travel blanket for Eloise. The size and weight are PERFECT. They are so warm and soft and I feel like they get better with each wash. We got the dusty pink color for Eloise and the Cornflower Blue for baby. Would make a great holiday gift too!

4. Avent Natural Baby Bottle Blue
We used Avent for Eloise and loved them. So easy to clean and store and loved the different sizes and nipples they had available. We added some blue bottles to our stash just for fun. 

5. Dock-A-Tot Cover
This was easily one of our most used baby items. We had Eloise in it until she could no longer fit. It was her favorite spot to nap. I wanted an updated cover and found this gorgeous blue floral from their collaboration with Morris & Co. I loved every print they had and wish I could get them all.

6. Nursery Caddy Tote
We will be doing sink baths for the foreseeable future so this caddy is very handy in keeping things organized and accessible.
7. Noodle & Boo Newborn Hair & Body Wash
Love the smell of Noodle & Boo, it's probably my favorite shampoo brand. Could not help myself and had to get a couple bottles for baby.

8. Bibs Baby Pacifier
This brand has the best colors and sizes for pacifiers. Eloise was not a huge fan so I am hoping baby boy will actually like them so I can get all of the colors {mom nerd-alert, I know haha}.

9. Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets
We love swaddle blankets! Added a few to our collections with these adorable animal prints that are both masculine and sweet at the same time.

Aside from boy clothing this is pretty much all we have gotten for the baby. I can't believe we are only a couple weeks away!

Stay tuned for a few more blog posts before I go away for a few weeks to attend to my newborn.

All the best,
