Mittens to the rescue!
What gifts would you like to receive from your baby registry? These are all great ideas! I just like parties. Parties are always fun! Or getting pampered with other ladies, or a simple lunch where people can gift you some needed things, are really great.
Congratulations to you my friend. My SIL has loaned me her bassinet and a bouncy seat and family has been shopping at thrift stores for little clothes. It is really nice when people do sprinkles, or even just diaper parties for those second or fifth babies.
Loved reading this post! My husband and I are trying for our second baby, so fingers crossed this will be me soon. I agree with everything on your list.
I know the most important will be diapers. I also have a bassinet on my list, and something for carrying around baby with me during the day while I work. Depending on the age spread, a double stroller can come in handy. Double strollers are awesome, especially for kids close in age I had twins first, so I started with a double stroller. My list consists of a 2nd humidifier, a double jogger kids will be 17 months apart , princess potty, a 2nd monitor prefer video this time around for the older child and then give hers to baby , a 2nd sound machine, diapers, wipes, potty training pants, toddler mattress and convertible crib, and a hospital grade thermometer.
They are better for the planet AND our babies. They have a wetness strip so you can see when the diaper is wet and needs to be changed. These are the only diapers I will ever use on my kids.

I love the bouncer feature, as we could have Baby with us at the table from infancy. Bibs — Because babies are messy. Love this one too. If only we had it with our first. Oh, and this one by Britax is also a great infant car seat option. Baby wrap — I also love a good lightweight wrap.
I also love the Solly wrap! Stroller — So, we have a lot of strollers. I collect strollers, ha! If you just have one baby, I highly recommend the Quinny Moodd. It is our faaaaavorite. We also have the Baby Jogger City Select , since we needed a double stroller. And for a lightweight, umbrella type option, the Quinny Yezz is our favorite. Car mirror — Oh, this thing has made car rides non-disastrous. Babies love staring at themselves. And who can blame them?
Packs up easily and Baby sleeps just fine in it. So soft, nice and big, ideal for not only swaddling but also as a light blanket, stroller cover, nursing cover, car shade, literally everything. Plus, the designs are so cute! Pacifiers — Sam never really took to pacis, but for the little while that he did use them, they were a godsend. Sophie the giraffe teether — Sophieeeee. Drool bibs — Because babies drool. Diaper bag — A cute one.
Changing pad — We have this one and got a few cute covers to go over it. And they smell so good. Wipes — Again, duh. Infant bath tub — We have this one and love it- we actually still use it for Sam!
It has a removable infant insert, which is great. Fits perfectly in the bath tub, too. I love this puj tub , too, as it can fold up into nothing and hang on the back of your door. For tiny bathrooms like ours! Hooded bath towels — CUTE.
Gotta keep that sweet noggin nice and warm. Burp cloths — Definitely need. Because you just never know. Can also be used as wash cloths! That soft clean baby skin is comparable to nothing in this world. You make bath time so much fun! Basic onesies — Because blowouts are a constant, one can never have too many onesies.
Mittens — Sam scratched his face a lot when he was a newborn. Mittens to the rescue! Socks — These are a must to keep those little baby tootsies nice and cozy warm! Footed Jammies — I love the little snaps or buttons, but I also recommend getting the kind with zippers to save you some frustration during those late night diaper changes.
Baby moccs — Totally unnecessary but totally adorable. Skip Hop activity gym — Babies looooove these little play mat things. Sam would lie under this and play with the little animals all the time. Teething toys — Just get a bunch of these, because they are invaluable. The Nuby keys are cute and Sam loves them! Baby Einstein musical toy — This thing literally entertains a baby for hours.
Okay, maybe not that long, but seriously. Bring it in the car and the crying ceases. This is too classic of a toy not to have. Stuffed animal — Sam has a super soft bunny just like this, and it is the sweetest. We also love Brown Bear and friends books.
Babies love being read to.
