Thankfully, we have a lot of what we need for our little bundle of joy that's expected to arrived in about a month. Since we didn't know Maggie's sex before she was born, most everything is gender-neutral too.
For this pregnancy, it's a totally different time of year than Maggie's birth (she was born in summer), plus, we know it's a boy! So, we did decide to create a registry for the new kid and I'm using Babyli.st which allows you to register for items from various stores.
- I've been able to add items from Etsy to my registry this way.
- You can add non-tangible items like bringing a meal or cleaning in the Help + Favors section.
- I can include a direct link to another registry like Target or Babies R Us.
- You can also add a personalized note. I made note that we would welcome any of the items in gently used condition and we have plenty of boy clothes already.
1- A doll carrier (for big sis). I have a feeling Maggie will be all about baby-wearing once she sees me using the Moby wrap.
2- Covered Goods nursing cover. I struggled with getting Maggie to use a nursing cover and I think there are a few reasons: we had a hard time with her latch, she was a summer baby and disliked the heat and I didn't introduce the cover early in our nursing journey. I am determined to get this guy to nurse under cover and am hopeful being a winter baby will help!
3- Zutano fleece bootie. I hear great things about these little booties, as in they STAY ON THEIR FEET. I need to try these for myself.
4- Phil and Ted's double stroller. I won't need a double-stroller right away, but I think by summer, it will be most helpful.
5- Tennessee tri-star logo bib. A little something to show some love to Daddy's home state.
6- Lily Jade Elizabeth diaper bag. I loved having a backpack diaper bag with Maggie and this one is definitely more costly, but with two kids I think it will be worth the investment. The organization pocket is removable, so I am convinced this will be a game changer. And did I mention it converts from over-the-shoulder to a backpack?
7- Colorado ski hat. Because I am obsessed with anything that has the Colorado state flag on it and he's a winter baby!
8- Bundle Me car seat cover. Another winter baby item, to keep the new kid warm and toasty.
9- Oh Baby nursing friendly pajamas. Mama needs to stay warm in the winter months with a new pair of pajamas.
Is there anything else you would add to this list? Let me know if you have any advice for having a baby during the winter.
