Gone are the days of only a baby shower for your first baby. My church was kind enough to throw me a shower for my second and earlier this year they threw a shower of a mom due with her fourth!
This brings up the question — what does one register for for the second (or third or fourth) kid — this assuming you didn’t get rid of all your baby equipment and/or it isn’t gender specific.
I’ve come up with a list of eight. Eight things you are for sure going to need for baby.
1. Diapers and Wipes
Whether you are going for cloth or disposable you need diapers. Even reusing cloth, it’s nice to have extra/new for the new addition. Same goes with the wipe. I currently have two in diapers and it’s crazy how many wipes we go through!
2. Bath Stuff
Shampoo, bubble bath, powder, lotion, etc.
Yes, this is number two. You would think I’d have blankets from number one, but no. Every blanket I had was either way to girlie or way to thick for my summer baby (E was a late fall/winter baby). So I registered for the lightweight blankets (and even had a friend make me an amazing quilt that going to be perfect for winter!)
This one might not be as much of a need to others as much as it was for me. Given my number one was a girl and number two was a boy so I needed a whole new wardrobe. There is also season differences to take in to consideration.
5. Spit Rags
I have this favorite shop in Etsy. This gal makes the best and cutest spit rags. Again every single spit rag I owned was either super girlie or decked in flowers. Who doesn’t love a cute spit rag?!
6. Nursey Decor
My little dude doesn’t get his own room. In fact his bed (which is an owl pack n play) is a hand me down from his sister. However, some babies get their own space and with that own space comes with decorating. Be sure to register for the fun decor stuff!!
7. Nursing Pads/Milk Storage Supplies
If you are going the nursing route, nursing pads and milk storage supplies are a must!
8. Bottles, Formula, Etc
If you’re not going the nursing route, you’ll need bottles and formula. Even if you are going the nursing route, a few bottles to have on hand is a good thing.
