I know most people do not have a baby shower for their second baby, but I wouldn't mind a little get together with friends to celebrate life before two kids. I have lots of clothes left from Mason and most of the gear. We kept what we really liked and used most often. I do not need much more than diapers and wipes, but I love parties and seeing people that I don't get to see that often.
There are a couple items besides diapers and wipes that I have been looking at. It is so hard to decide what we really want.
The headache of this pregnancy. What do I need? Will Mason like the sit and stand? Will we use it? Will it be easier to use a child carrier and our single umbrella stroller for outings? Mason can walk a lot, but there are times he is not so into walking. If we went to an amusement park or zoo or any event type place we would need an option for Mason to sit when he gets tired.
The practical option I will probably go with is the Baby Trend Sit & Stand. It is practical and hopefully it will hold up for walking. I saw one of these at the Phoenix Zoo when we went and asked the parents how they liked it, they liked it and recommended it. This would be nice for outings.
Baby Trend Double Stroller Sit & Stand
The cadillac of double jogging strollers is the BoB. I wish I had $400 to drop on a stroller, but I cannot do it. I have seen these strollers at a couple 5ks and they are pretty nice.
The option I like the best is the In Step Double Stroller. It runs about $270 so I don't think we will be getting that one, but it would be really nice for our walks and runs. This is the one that I would choose I think.
There are so many options out there to choose from. I hope we can find some of these today so I can look at them in real life instead of just online.
We had a cheap $30 carrier when Mason was little that I think we might have used a handful of times. We really were not into wearing him. My biggest problem was how uncomfortable the carrier was. My back would start hurting after about ten minutes. It just did not have the support and it was definitely a "you get what you paid for" type situation.
This time around I think that I will be using a carrier more because Mason will be running around and need things as well. I have been researching carriers since I found out I was pregnant. The one that really interests me is the Lille Baby. I watched a video on how it goes on and comes off and the uses for it and I thought that it looked pretty easy to use. The main thing is I don't want to have to have another adult around to help me get this thing on.
Anyone out there have this carrier? Thoughts? What carrier do you have that you would recommend?
Tim loves his Keurig and I think that I would love this baby Keurig! How great is this product? I am in love! I may consider this if it was my first pregnancy, but I could always sell it after. I am lusting after this thing, but I cannot justify spending that kind of money.
This is not for the new baby, but it is something we saw that we think Mason (& Tim) would really like. Darn infomercials on the weekends... some of the stuff actually looks good.
For mommas of two what was something you had to have when you had baby # 2?
