Baby #2 Wish List
Solly Baby Wrap - I'm so excited to baby wear this time around. I didn't do it much with Aria, but I'm thinking the need will be much higher with the new babe. And, I've heard nothing but amazing things about this wrap. It was one of the first items that made it onto the wish list.
The Ollie Swaddle - I had a heck of a time swaddling Aria. I was either terrible at it or she was a swaddle ninja. Either way I have high hopes that this swaddle will solve all things. I also love the muted colors.
Little Unicorn Cotton Muslin Swaddle Blankets - When people say you can never have enough baby blankets they mean cotton muslin swaddle blankets. We had a nice stack of tiny baby blankets/towels/whatever for Aria and we hardly ever used them for anything. Her swaddle blankets, however, are still going strong. And, I don't think she would be at all okay with sharing. So, little man needs his own! And, these little unicorn ones are so beautiful they literally make me cry. I have at least $100 worth of these on my amazon baby #2 wish list. Aria had Aden + Anais, and while those are amazing I never loved their patterns. The little unicorn designs on the other hand are what baby picture dreams are made of.
DockATot - I stumbled upon this baby sleeper while researching all sorts of baby sleep options. He will be in our room to start but I was at a loss as to where I would put a bassinet or anything of the sort. This, however, looks perfect. He gets his own spot without me having to start hanging things from the ceiling.
Candy Kirby Designs, Knotted Baby Gown - I love how simple and gorgeous it is. All the beautiful baby picture dreams swimming through my head again.
Nuna Leaf - Aria hated her bouncer, and pretty much anything else involving being put down. But, that is probably because she wasn't reposing on a wafting leaf! This one is definitely on the furthest end of the wish side of this wish list, the rest being more or less needs. I just love it so it made the cut.
Mortimer Moose - I think there may be a rule that you have to have some sort of lamaze baby toy. If I would have known about the moose when I had Aria she certainly would have had it too. If the Solly Wrap was the first item to be added to the wish list then Mortimer was the second.
Pretzel Rattles - I saw these over on Little Baby Garvin ages ago. They are so pretty I remembered them when I found out I was expecting another myself. I'm not one to hold on to many things as mementos but I have a few baby toys of Aria's that I plan on keeping forever and ever. I feel like the pretzel rattles would make that list as well.
Sleep Sheep - Anything to help drown out big sister's 'inside' voice. We have Aria's but she uses it still, so little brother is going to need his own.
Ubbi Diaper Pail - Aria had a regular plastic type trash can, which really didn't do much to contain diaper stink. I never wanted to get a genie and then need to purchase special bags as well. So we just suffered. The Ubbi doesn't require any special bags so I'm sold.
Blooming Bath - A baby bath tub is high on my list of must haves. Aria didn't have one and in hindsight it was a pain in the rear. And, actually a sweet friend is already handing down their blooming bath for us to use so this one is already crossed off the list!
Shea Moisture Baby Wash - I heard this was a nice wash to use for newborns and I'm just hoping it smells better than the California Baby tea tree wash we used on Aria.
