Like a lot of second time moms, I have a basement full of baby gear. Stroller, play yard, bouncy seat, high chair, stair gates, you name it. I have it all. Some of my stuff was gifts from relatives and friends, some of it we bought ourselves but no matter where it came from, it’s all still in good shape and just waiting to be unpacked for baby number two this summer.
But just because I have all the big stuff, doesn’t mean there aren’t gaps in my baby supply stash. Or there aren’t little wish list items that I keep making mental notes to stock up on for myself. These things are a lot less romantic that what I wanted for the first baby – no coordinating Pack’n’Play and baby swing this time! – But they’re the things I know from experience will make those first hectic weeks a little smoother.
Here’s my list of great gifts for a second time mom!
