The Gift Guide - What to Put On Your Second Baby Registry
Monday, February 26, 2018
If you have a second baby on the way it can be confusing to know what you need to ask for at the baby shower. We make choosing the gifts for your second baby registry easy with our latest blog.
The beauty about having a second child is the wealth of experience and knowledge gained from the first. Chances are you are going into this venture with your eyes wider open and mistakes of past experiences etched firmly in your memory.
With trunk loads of toys already amassed from the first child, along with books and clothing, a new set of must-haves can take their place on your wishlist - grown from a refreshed perspective on how to raise a child with relative comfort and ease.
If you are in the midst of planning your second-baby registry, Baby Train carries a comprehensive range of premium quality, innovative and useful nursery and travel products you’ll want to add to your wishlist.
Twin baby prams are not just for twins. Light, adaptable, versatile prams now boast the ability to be modified to accommodate diverse aged children; with the capacity for capsule, carrycot and stroller options. For a new mum with a toddler, these prams are a godsend.
Consider suggesting a ‘chip in’ between friends and family members to tick off all your pram needs in one. By buying a quality, durable product, you will have a travel system which will genuinely enhance your day to day life.
Chances are by this time your first child has graduated out of of his car seat. If it was a good one it will have adapted through the stages from newborn to toddler and it will now be time for an updated seat to take its place.
This may be the ideal time to add a booster or pram compatible car capsule to your baby shower list.
With two small children, one ready to roll and one ready to run, you may wish you were an octopus - having only two hands to deal with them just doesn’t cut it. A baby carrier frees up your hands so you can get work done, tend to older children or simply make yourself a snack, all while keeping baby close to your heart.
Carriers often have the versatility to be used either on the front of the body or on your back - forward or rear facing, depending on baby’s age.
Once the new baby arrives, attention can be diverted away from the older child and gates and barriers become an important safety feature in the home.
Versatile play yards with adaptable extension kits can create safe zones, allowing you to get work finished, bathe or change your newest addition or keep noisy toddlers away from the sleeping baby.
Chances are the entrance of a new baby is going to mean an updated or replacement bassinet, cradle or cot. The range of contemporary, innovative and stylish nursery furniture has blossomed over the years and it’s worth checking out the stunning new options available.
If your eldest is old enough to sit in the bath independently, consider a Flexi Bath for the newborn. The time spent bathing together for children can be a bonding one and this safe and comfy bath support is an affordable yet handy purchase - ideal for guests on a budget.
Just as your life transformed when your first baby was born, so too will you experience a life change with the second. Baby Train are the experts in everything from travel systems and nursery furniture to all the accessories which go into making life as a parent easier.
