12 weeks pregnant with my second. Still very sick so I'm just trying to do anything to start getting excited.
I haven't even begun to think about baby stuff and what's needed and will eventually get stuff out of storage and go through it all.
Just wondering is there any stuff that you would suggest getting for the second baby? Would you suggest a mamroo thing?
Anything that you are meant to get a new one of for each baby?
Sorry just in need of some list writing and retail therapy to feel a bit better!

A carseat. Either to upgrade your oldest into or for the new bub.
You may need a new mattress for the bassinet or cot depending on how manky it might be, especially if it's been in not so good storage.
New wheels for your pram?
Do you need a pram board for your oldest or a double pram?
New baby toiletries
Congrats and yeah I feel for you. I had 26 weeks of morning sickness. Not fun.

Possibly a double pram
Things you might not have needed the first time around like a rocker
New teats for bottles
I bought a few extra onesies etc but the reality is that DS2 rarely gets bought new clothes as a 3.5 year old!

A carrier/wrap/ring sling. That way you can be safely holding baby while running after the older child.
If your baby will be born opposite season to your first, you might need a lot of new clothes, different weight swaddles etc.

Some new/fresh maternity clothes, bras & undies particularly if different seasons.

Depending on how old your older child is -a new car seat, if they are old enough and tall enough to get a type g car seat (1 year to 8 years) they are a good option as they are fully harnessed, only if they are tall enough of course as it saves you buying a booster at age 4 ( rear facing for longer is safer of course) Other wise another 0 to 4 car seat if your older child is on the little side
- new mattress if first one is stained
- cloth nappies for spew rags
- baby swing is a god send
- baby carrier (we have baby Bjorne “the one”)
- second seat for pram or skate board attachment
We had a 5 year gap between our kids so needed quite a lot as most things were passéd on but if you have a smaller gap it’s pretty easy to re use most things. Hope you feel better soon
