    Default 2nd child same gender what do I need

    With less than 3 months to go I haven't purchased anything for 2nd bub. ( well a few new bottles and onsies)
    I know we need a car seat but I feel we have everything else.
    Our pram converts to a double ( and I got the parts) and we have kept everything else.

    Am I just caught up in the chaos of a toddler and forgetting something ?

    Ill let you know soon but the only things I bought was new Manchester and things like that (towel, sheets, etc).

    Didn't even bought new clothes and its a different gender!
    Didn't bother with a double pram as DS walks everywhere already.

    So Id say you are set!

    I've just had dd2 and like you had kept most things. Good to have that double pram as sometimes my dd1 wants to be in it if her sister is and tired.

    Other than that the usual personal care stuff and take it from there!!! I just buy as I go.

    We bought a new dresser to put clothes in. Car seat (like you mentioned).

    I also bought new linen and clothes (different gender) but you wouldn't need that.

    Are your kids born around the same time of year? The only thing I can think is if you had a summer baby you might need more warmer stuff for Winter baby?

    This is a bit left field but I'd suggest you get a toy that you can say the baby gave your older child as a present. And then a bag of cheap activities that your older child can do whilst you look after Bub.
