I have a 4 and 2 year old and an almost 4 month old. Boy, boy, girl. For dd, we just bought girl clothes, a new car seat. That was it.

My oldest two boys are 1 year apart I also have a 7 month old son Connor and I am expecting a baby in January.

A double stroller was a must have for me. A car seat of course was a must. I have all boys so it honestly wasn't much to buy.

My biggest issue was keeping the older child occupied if I could do it all over I would have found more ways to keep him busy jealousy was a issue.

Congratulations!

If your son is still in a crib, you might want a second one, or you might want a basinet/cradle for your little girl until she's ready for the crib and your son is ready for a toddler bed.  Otherwise, I'd just make sure you have a good car seat, clothes and maybe a double stroller.  I don't think you need much else.

Clothes, blankets, etc. Our second and third will be 22 months apart. I kept the car seat and stroller.

You already have a child. You know what you need. My kids were 18 months and 23 months apart.

I was going to suggest a baby carrier. It will make a world of difference.

Also, check Pinterest ideas for busy bags for toddlers. Having special bags to play with when the baby is fussy or nursing full time can help reduce jealousy.
