When I was pregnant with Mason, my first son, I didn’t know what to buy! I did a ton of research through different websites and ended up getting pretty overwhelmed. Things that work for one baby may not work for another, so I purchased quite a few things I ended up never using. So, here are my second baby must haves!
Now that I’ve gone through the experience of having a kid, I’ve realized that it’s best to just purchase the basics before your baby is born! At the end of the day, all you really need is a safe place for the baby to sleep, clean bottles if you want to bottle-feed, clean diapers, and clean clothes. And if you’re nursing it’s still great to have formula on-hand, just in case!
When shopping for my first child, I didn’t put a lot of thought into what I would need to purchase for myself and solely focused on what Mason would need. I felt like I ended up neglecting myself during those first few months, and I definitely don’t want to make that mistake again! Now, I’m not only thinking of newborn essentials, but also what you would need as a new Momma in the fourth trimester.
Today, I’m sharing the things that came in handy for Mason and I in those first several months. Because these items worked so well before, I’ll definitely be keeping them on hand for our second son! Click on the images below to shop for second baby must haves!
