10 Gifts for Second-Time Moms

By Rebekah Kuschmider |

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!

10 Gifts for Second-Time Moms

Simple Newborn Clothes

Many moms still have a lot of the gorgeous, special occasion outfits they got for their first child. But simple onsies, socks and sleepers probably fell victim to unfixable up-the-back poop-slopsions or disappeared into the vortex in the dryer that steals baby socks.

    How about a Push Pack – a prepacked hospital labor bag. She’s busy w/ #1, and really doesn’t have all of the time to pack. Lists of what to bring are so much more practical for #2, 3, 4 … the Push Pack is filled with all of those little things!

    Great list! I am also pregnant with my second and I would love to receive any of these suggestions. I would also add house cleaning services to the list. I could hardly keep my house clean with one baby!
