It’s understood that practically everyone agonizes over what to buy for their first baby. Most compile robust registries with everything from the car seat to six kinds of pacifiers. But the second baby registry? A different story altogether.
Most people still have the big-ticket items kicking around and might even feel a bit sheepish about asking friends and family to buy baby items again. But when you add a second baby into the mix– especially if your first is still a toddler–your needs are different than before. Products that give you an extra set of arms and make your busy life a little easier are key.
Of course the second (and first!) time around, shopping second hand is a smart way to go. But if you’ve got family and friends opening their wallet, by all means take them up on it. 😂
Don’t know where to start? You’re in luck. As seasoned mamas of multiples, we’ve compiled a list of things that truly solve problems and help make it easier to care for babies and toddlers at the same time.
These are the best products to add to a second baby registry.
