After having both a baby boy and a baby girl, I’d say we are pretty well-stocked for number 3. We have a full wardrobe for both genders, a crib, changing table, strollers, car seats, etc…
So this time around I wanted to get some fun things for me and the baby! I started a “Baby Registry” Pinterest board to keep track of what I want. Don’t be confused by the term “registry;” I don’t actually expect these things to be bought for me, but I like having everything in one easy-to-see place. And hey, if anyone needs a present idea…!
Actually, when Vanessa was born, we got lots and lots of diapers given to us, which was AWESOME. We had a corner of the nursery dedicated to boxes of diapers, and I don’t think I bought her a single diaper until she was 6 months old!
But other than diapers, here are some of the fun things I want to get this time around:
Push Pack: pre-packed hospital labor bag
This just looks like an awesome way to be well-prepared for that hospital stay. Throw in a Boppy pillow and a baby blanket, and I think I’d be all set! I had such a good experience last time around, that I’m actually excited for this time around, but I know every labor and delivery is a little different!
Pink Lining “Poppins” diaper bag
Definitely not something I need, but it’s so cute! I found it through the baby shower giveaway hop I participated in recently, and sadly I did not win it!
Another prize I sadly did not win! I need to get a new changing pad, since our old one is basically worn down to nothing, and might as well get a nice new cover for it, right? This one would match the nursery decor perfectly!
3-in-1 Rocker Napper from Tiny Love
Guess where I heard about this? If you said, “from another giveaway you didn’t win,” you are RIGHT! This is actually something I need for baby #3. My first baby slept in a bassinet that then got ruined in storage. My second slept in a nap nanny, which has since basically been recalled. So now we need something for baby #3. I love that this has a reclining option, because my first had a hard time sleeping on his back, and there are few safe ways to elevate a newborn.
Such a smart, simple way to feed baby during the night without waking up daddy and/or leaving the room! Want it, need it!
In addition to being adorable, this seems like it would really come in handy. I’ve bathed two newborns in the plastic baby tub we have, and it’s never an easy task! I like that this would allow me to stand up while washing baby and keep the water running so baby doesn’t get cold!
This is something I’ve been wanting to get for a long time, and I’m finally going to get one for baby #3! Once we move and get the nursery all set up, I’ll be reserving a special corner for my glider so I can rock my baby!
So those are my needs/wants/desires for baby #3! Plus lots and lots and lots of diapers.
What did I miss? Any other must-haves out there, or Etsy shops that I must check out? Let me know!
