When I registered for baby items with my first daughter, Harlan, I honestly didn’t think about whether or not the gear would last for more than one child. I bought what I liked and that was the end of it.
When we moved from Tampa to NYC there was a lot of baby gear that we saved just in case we did have another baby. When I got pregnant with Avery we went to our storage unit to get a few of the items we saved from Harlan. I had no idea what the condition of most of the items would be in because they had been in the storage unit for well over a year, but we thought we would give it a try and see if Avery would use it.
To my surprise, we have gotten a lot of use out of many of the same baby items we used for Harlan. I know that every baby is different and what one might love the other might hate. But there are several items that we have used for both girls and they both have loved. Check out the 7 baby items after the jump!
