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

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

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
