2nd Baby Buys


This is a post I  hoped to get up pre Max but he decided to arrive a little early but I thought it might be a handy one for second time mums.. As you will know, I knew I was expecting another boy so with that I got a lot of ‘oh that’s handy, you won’t need to buy much’ Well that didn’t stop me!

Firstly I didn’t know Josh was a boy so none of the early stuff is very ‘boyish’-cue buying new cute babygrows. Plus looking at Josh’s now, they all looked a bit tired.

*the obligatory going home outfit-Hat H&M, Cardi Zara & Babygrow Jo Jo Maman Bebe

Secondly, there were things we didn’t have the first time that I knew would be useful for second time-video monitor, bottle warmer are examples. I am exclusivily breastfeeding for now but plan to introduce a bottle like I did with Josh in a few weeks. Most of these items were bought in Mothercare in the sale. 

Thirdly, you can not control the nesting feeling that comes and new baby deserves a few new things too!
Here are some of my favourites and handy purchases I made. 

This cushion completed Max’s room and I just love it! I got it in Marks & Spencer with their very handy deliver to store service. 

I couldn’t resist this star set after re spraying the Tripp Trap!

I’ve always loved these muslins so this was an early purchase and put away until baby boy was born and they are a great size. A really lovely gift! I got mine from Cherish Me which is a fab baby boutique in Dublin. 

Happy Shopping!
