I know you remember. It wasn't that long ago for many of you. When baby number one came along, it was like nothing you never experienced--from pregnancy through childbirth, those first 6 weeks, and that first year. It's all a fantastic, wonderful, sometimes quite stressful experience. When number two comes along, you know what to expect, but that doesn't always mean you're ready for it.
My sister-in-law is about to have number 2. It's another girl, and my nieces will be just 20 months apart. We're having a "sprinkle" for her this weekend. Not an all-out shower, but a few close family members celebrating the imminent arrival of the latest bundle of joy.
Having two little girls in the house means she's going to need a few things right away, both big and small. A double stroller and new crib are two that top her list. She can still use her infant car seat, but will eventually need a new car seat as well. Even though she will have two girls, she's going to need some newborn clothes, too. Not many, but some.
Also, I'm not sure if this is true with everyone, but I used my daughter's bibs and burpees till they looked like rags--permanently yellow, and very worn. I would need new ones, and I'm guessing she will too. While I'm at it, I would also probably get new bottles, too.
Moms, what do you think she needs to stock up on for number 2? What kind of things did you get new, and what were you able to reuse?
