    Default What products can't you live without for bub #2?

    Hi all,

    Just wondering what products you can't live without for your kids with close age gaps??

    There will be 13-14 months between our #1 and #2, and i am starting the look around for things we either don't have or didn't need when we just had one.

    TIA for any suggestions

    Buy the best double pram that you can, we have a 13 mth gap and bought a second hand phil and teds inline pram thinking that DD will only be in a pram for a short while, the pram has fallen apart and now i am scouring for another pram, wish i had just forked out the money for a new one 5 mths ago! Buy extra cot sheets. Those are the two things we didnt buy at the time and regret!

    My 2 are 18 months apart and I barely used the double pram, we have a strider plus, I do use it when I do a big grocery shop though as it has a huge bottom basket.

    Loved my ergo for keeping #2 close while being hands free for toddler.

    I would buy a couple of lunch boxes and stock them full of little snacks like dried fruit or whatever your little one likes to eat. I found it so much easier to pull something out of the cupboard at lunchtime and give the toddler a sandwich and a few snack items then trying to rush around making a lunch and getting it done. I'd get DH to make a sandwich in the morning before he went to work.

    Thanks for the suggestions

    We put a P&T hammerhead with double attachment on layby on the weekend.

    I already have a baby carrier thingy. I only used it twice with DD as I had a travel system pram so we just used the pram when out and about.
    So it's still in good nick, so tick for that one

    I think I'm just trying to find excuses to get new stuff for this baby that's the fun part of being pregnant! Hehehe

    But any more suggestions would be awesome
