pregnant again :)

first....YAY!

question....what were the things you wished you'd had for the first child that you did/will have for your second? I'm trying to think of what I have already, and what I'd wished i'd had, things like a bumbo seat. I babysat a baby girl for a few months and didnt realize how great it was until she brought hers over.

  • a boppy, which maybe the bumbo seat you are talking about. I wanted a sling, breast pump, changing table, take maternity and newborn pics, carseat cover, playpen, diaper genie

  • I want to get maternity pics taken, which I didnt last time. I learned about slings/wraps etc when DD was like 6 or 8 mos old, so I'm super excited to use one with my newborn when she arrives. Thats about it, really.

  • Same as the first poster...the Boppy. I have no idea how I survived my first baby without one. I loved it when I had my 2nd. I also didn't use the playpen enough with my first, but it really got a lot of use with my 2nd.

  • The pictures comment reminded me that I got newborn pictures taken of my 2nd, I really wished I had done that with the first. Other than that I can't think of anything. I got a Bumbo seat at a garage sale for my 2nd. Thank goodness I hardly paid anything for it because she hated it. For my 3rd I'm hoping to get a co-sleeper and a new infant carseat that will last longer. My old one only holds up to 20 lbs and 26 inches, which my kids outgrow in length pretty quickly.
