Baby No.2 Wish List

Baby No.2 Wishlist4Moms Baby Rocker | Bloom Fresco Baby Chair | Ollie Ella Moma Nursing Chair | SnuzPod | Snuz Designz | Mamas & Papas Muslins | Medela Swing  | Groswaddle Swaddle Baby Blankets

The great thing about having a baby second, third or even forth time round, is that you have most or at least some of the things that you already need. Luckily, we kept most of our baby things after having the little lady as we knew we would like at least one more baby. That means that we don’t have to buy everything new like we did first time round. However there are some things that I would like to get again, upgrade, or get because we didn’t get them the first time round. So I’ve made a bit of a second baby wish list which we’re already making pretty good progress against!

1. 4Moms mamaRoo Baby Rocker  Stockist: John Lewis £239.95

I love the look of this rocker and definitely want to get it for our second baby. The first time round we had a beautiful wooden one that looked great, was stupidly expensive, but didn’t do anything. It was one of the things that I regretted spending so much on and always said that the next time round we would get one that had some type of motion. The mamaroo is a little on the pricey side, but it does so much and after having a terrible sleeper the first time round, I’m willing to invest my money in something that could help us avoid a similar experience the second time round.

2. Bloom Fresco Chrome Contemporary Leatherette Baby Chair Stockist:Peppermint £469

The Bloom Fresco is another product I love the look of and could see fitting in so well with our house. I remember looking at them when we were expecting the little lady, but thinking that they were ridiculously expensive for a high chair. But I’ve since changed my opinion after seeing a friends one and discovering that they can be used from birth, effectively doubling up as a bit of a rocker in the kitchen. I genuinely wish we’d just bought one the first time round because then at least we would have got lots more use out of it with two children.

3. Ollie Ella Mo-ma Glider Nursing Chair Stockist: John Lewis. £975

The Ollie Ella Glider is another product that I discovered when we were pregnant with the little lady, but at the time it was only stocked in the US. I literally lusted over this chair and refused to buy anything else on the premise that they didn’t measure up to this gorgeous piece of furniture. I was so delighted when I discovered a few months ago that John Lewis have started stocking them and would love to have one in the house, but have to admit it is eye wateringly expensive and the husband said he would rather rock us both himself for that price, ha!

4. Snuzpod Bedside Crib Stockist: The Little Green Sheep £169

The SnuzPod is a product that I have totally fallen in love with this pregnancy and am most definitely going to be getting for baby number two. It’s such an ingenious little invention, especially for mums that are breastfeeding like I’m hoping I’ll be able to again. This would have made our lives a lot easier if we’d had it when the little lady was a baby, but its a relatively new product so wasnt around at that time. I think with two little ones it’ll be even more useful as I can imagine there may be scenarios where the little lady may try to climb in bed with us once she notices her sibling is in our room with us.

5. Snuz Crib Bedding Set Cloud Nine Stockist:The Little Green Sheep £34.95

If we have the SnuzPod then we most definitely need the gorgeous Snuz Designz bedding that goes with it. I love the bright and fun designs and seriously want to buy them all. The hardest thing will be just picking one or two to start with!

6. Mamas & Papas Welcome to the World Large Muslin Squares Stockist: Mamas & Papas £19.00

I love muslins and used them for virtually everything when the little lady was a baby. We still have loads and use them on the odd occasion, but I’d like to get a few more because they are one of the things that you can never really have enough of with a baby. Some of my favourites that we have from the first time round are large Mamas & Papas patterned ones which have washed and kept really well so I’d love to get these beautiful rabbit ones from their new welcome to the world collection.

7. Medela Swing Breastpump Stockist: John Lewis £134

As I’ve already mentioned, I’m really hoping to breastfeed again with our second baby, so I’d love to get the Medela Swing which I had the first time round and really loved. It made breastfeeding surprisingly quick, easy and painless and I would recommend to any breastfeeding mum as I did in the review that I wrote when I was breastfeeding the little lady. This is another one of my must have purchases for baby number two.

8. Groswaddle Swaddle Baby Blankets Stockist:John Lewis £17.95

When we had the little lady I really wanted to try swaddling her, but never really managed to figure out the technique properly and wasnt confident enough in my new parenting skills to really give it a proper go. I’m pleased to see that this time round, there are a range of new products that have come on to the market that make swaddling a lot easier. I’m determined to give it a proper go this time as I really do think there are some real benefits for baby. We love The Gro Company and I love the look of their Groswaddle so im definitely going to make sure we pick up some of these!

I cant wait to look back in a couple of months and see what we actually got from our wish list. I’m sure we wont get everything, but I hope we can get most things! I’d love to hear what else you think should be on our wish list, and if you’re also having a baby soon whats on yours!

    I had 4 & 7 which were great. I too would want 1 & 2 if I was to have a baba again, although they are pricey – gorgeous though xx

      I loved my Medela Swing the first time around and cant wait to use it again with baby no.2 and I’ve heard great things about the Snuz so cant wait to try it too. The chair for me is a must have after baby no 1, but the high chair is probably a bit of a luxury I have to admit 😉

  2. March 13, 2016 / 12:21 am

    That nursing chair is gorgeous! I’ve heard great things about the groswaddle too – we did it with a normal blanket and it definitely made a difference. x #KCACOLS

    Great wishlist! I think if I was making one it would be very similar to this! x #KCACOLS

    We had a baby bloom and loved it. Although they are really heavy and a nightmare to move and the base can take up a lot of space, so just something to be aware of, if it is going to be in a smaller space. However, it is really well made and lasts, we have used it with both our children. Some fab choices on your wishlist #KCACOLS

    What a beautiful wishlist! There are definitely things I would want the second time around and be willing to invest in. I would love that chair but ouch at the price tag! I hope you manage to get a good selection from your wishlist 🙂 #kcacols

  6. March 13, 2016 / 1:23 pm

    I have the Medela pump and really like it. I wish I’d gotten a bedside crib like the one you want instead of a moses basket – if I ever have another baby (in the VERY distant future), I’d definitely get one. I also regret not getting a rocker, since it may have helped with a lot of the sleep problems we had in the early days. #KCACOLS

    What lovely things. We need a bouncer/baby rocker but that one seems a little pricey. We do have a Snüzpod though which I am so excited to use! Love the cloud nine Designz bedding too – it’s on my list of must-haves too. #KCACOLS

    So many beautiful things! It’s almost enough to make me want to have another baby! (Only almost though, we’re stopping at our lovely two). Love the idea of the snuzpod and the highchair is to die for! Although my hubby would have expected it to cook all of our meals for the first two years too for the price. 🙂

    I hope that the stork brings you as many of your wishlist items as it can carry, along with a beautiful bundle of fun of course.

    Thanks for hosting!

    I’ve been eyeing up the Snuzpod and the Mamaroo for my hypothetical no.2 – so glad they’re selling the Mamaroo over here now as a while back it seemed to be US only. My reservation with it is that it’s such a lot of money for something that might not be a hit with your baby (mine wouldn’t be put down at all, ever!) If they’re selling it in John Lewis now though you could visit a store for a trial once the baby arrives. I love that bedding set for the Snuzpod as well, it’s lovely!

      Oh wow, sounds like hard work! I cant imagine pumping manually, but I guess people do it. Next time round definitely consider a Medela Swing, it is seriously amazing! Really looking forward to getting some of the things on this wish list 🙂

    • My Petit Canard
      March 14, 2016 / 11:01 pm

      Thank you! I was told a very similar thing by the husband. Somehow I dont think the rocker will be materialising in our house anytime soon, but the rest of the items on the list are looking a lot more hopeful 🙂

  11. March 14, 2016 / 12:52 pm

    Number 4 is a must I saw this the other day – its amazing in 4 short years the market has improved as I looked and looked for something similar for my daughter. When I have another baby this is essential! #MarvMondays

  12. March 14, 2016 / 5:27 pm

    I LOVE that nursing chair!! My nursing chair is one of my favourite baby items, but this is so gorgeous! I may start savi6now for when we have baby no.2! Definitely agree that the Medela Swing is a great product, although I think I would buy a double next time just to make pumping a bit quicker! Great list, hope you manage to get some of them 🙂 #marvmondays

      Oh isnt it just beautiful, and they have a few other designs and colours in their range too at John Lewis. If they were around when Ella was born then we may have bought it, but with this quite possibly being our last, its quite a lot to spend knowing that we’ll only get so much use out of it. But then, it is gorgeous… 😉

      March 14, 2016 / 10:49 pm

      What a shame, but I can see how that could easily happen! The large muslins that we got from Mamas & Papas were originally intended for swaddling, but as I could never figure out how to do it properly, we just used them as large muslins. Hoping that if we get some proper swaddling blankets we’ll actually use them for swaddling!

  13. March 14, 2016 / 6:54 pm

    Wow, what beautiful items, it would be great to see some cheaper alternatives too. And thanks for co-hosting the link party, love coming back and seeing so many inspiring thing each week!

      Thanks, so glad to see you back for another week :-). I probably should have put a few more, affordable items on the list and almost did, but then I figured why not go big as its a wish list 😉

  14. March 14, 2016 / 8:32 pm

    Some great items on your wish list there. I’ve heard great things about the medela pump and I absolutely loved my rocking chair when bf my third baby. I wish I’d had a rocking chair with my other two. The other item I couldn’t have been without was my stretchy wrap. A must have in my opinion to enable you to snuggle baby while still being hands free. A godsend to anyone with a baby and a small one toddling/running around.

    Thanks for hosting #marvelousmondays

      I really missed not having a rocking chair the first time round, but think I might have to look for something a little more affordable! I’d love to get a sling too and was going to put one on the list, but when I started looking found it such a minefield (there are so many types out there!) so if you have any recommendations please share them 🙂

  15. March 14, 2016 / 8:43 pm

    I’d definitely go for a bedside crib the second time round – would have fitted much better in our tiny bedroom than the Moses basket #Marvmondays

    • My Petit Canard
      March 14, 2016 / 10:42 pm

      Thats what im thinking, the moses basket as lovely as it was, was a bit of an awkward shape and not as easily accessible so im really looking forward to having a SnuzPod this time round 🙂

    • My Petit Canard
      March 15, 2016 / 10:08 pm

      Its beautiful! I can easily imagine sitting in it with babes in arms 🙂

    Wow what a lovely list of items for your new baby! It’s funny how many new things come on the market since I had a baby! I really love the look of the Mamaroo – my friend bought one for her little girl last year and she swore by it so I think it’d be a great purchase!

    Thank you so much for linking up to #KCACOLS and I hope to see you back again next week xx

      I know, it some ways its changed loads, and in other ways hardly at all. I really love the look of the mamaroo, but dont really know many people that have actually had them so its great to hear that you’re friend thought it was great. Cant wait to get one!

  20. March 18, 2016 / 10:03 pm

    Lovely products. That looks like a high tech baby rocker! I like the Bloom products, and Medela breast pumps. & I love giant muslins. Nice as it looks, I probably agree with your husband about the nursing chair! 😀 #KCACOLS

      Thanks. I have to say, some baby products have come a long way since we had our daughter 2/3 years ago! I think its safe to say we wont be investing in the nursing chair *sad face* but Ill be a very happy lady if we manage to get the rocker and SnuzPod 🙂

    • March 21, 2016 / 10:22 pm

      I thought the same thing too! Its changes in some ways, but in others its exactly the same. The babyrocker and SnuzPods are my favourite picks and have to haves for this baby, cant wait to get them. Fingers crossed they are as great as I think they’ll be 🙂

  21. March 20, 2016 / 4:19 pm

    I really wanted the 4moms mamaroo when i was pregnant with Harry but couldn’t find it anywhere at the time! The snuzpod is one of my all time favourite baby products, im so sad my son grew out of it! #shareitsunday x

    • March 21, 2016 / 10:20 pm

      Oh what a shame! I dont think it was around when we had Ella the first time around either. I think it came out about a year after she was born.. The SnuzPod really does have rave reviews from everyone, I cant wait to get ours 🙂

  22. March 20, 2016 / 4:53 pm

    In case you haven’t taken the plunge yet with #1 – I saw it in Mamas and Papas this weekend for ~£190, a little bit of a saving there! It is a VERY swish seat!

    • March 21, 2016 / 10:19 pm

      Thanks for the tip! We still havent quite taken the plunge. I did see that this was on promotion at Mamas and Papas over the weekend, but we’re holding off until the Easter bank hols in case theres a bit more of a saving on offer. Fingers crosssed! 🙂

  23. March 20, 2016 / 9:47 pm

    Oh, I love the look of this list. I am going to Pin it, as there are loads of products on here that I desperately need. We have so much saved from Little Miss H but I don’t think much of it is suitable for a little boy. I am planning a massive shopping trip. We had Little Miss H in a moses basket but I really want Little Mister H to go in a bedside cot and I have heard such good things about the SnuzPod and that bedding is the cutest. And I definitely need to get a Medela swing breast pump. I had so many problems breast feeding Little Miss H that I expressed almost exclusively for three months. But I had an absolutely rubbish pump and it died a death by the end. The Medela is the best on the market and I know that it will be such a help for baby number two. Especially as for medical reasons I need to make sure that baby boy is able to get a large supply of breast milk and so expressing will be a must. Oh, and the GroSwaddle is brilliant. We used them for Little Miss H and she always looked so snug and content all wrapped up. Thanks for linking up to #SundaysStars. Hugs Lucy xxxx

      Thanks Lucy, glad its been useful! The Medela really is a must have, I couldnt recommend it any more highly! Its worth every single penny. The SnuzPod has rave reviews from everyone that I’ve spoken to and I’m pretty sure will make life easier all round 🙂 Those two are definitely my must have!
