Now that baby number two is making an appearance in a matter of weeks (ok, I could still say months but weeks sounds better) I thought I'd put together a wishlist. These are some of the things that I would love to get in readiness for baby number two, though in reality we really don't need very much. I think that's why these are mainly decorative because I'm keen to make some slight changes to the nursery. I am already conscious that this baby will be having a lot of hand-me-downs, as we're expecting another girl, so by changing the nursery it will feel like a new experience again. That's what I'm hoping anyway.
Starting in the top left hand corner I have fallen in love with the idea of a bedside co-sleeper and this Convertible from Babybay is just beautiful. I love the design and how it attaches to the side of the bed allowing co-sleeping without the risk. We didn't co-sleep at all with Isabella because I was simply too scared one of us would accidently hurt her in the night. However it was something I wish we could have done; I spent far too many nights awkwardly hanging out of the bed checking Isabella was breathing (paranoid first mum alert). I love the idea of being able to lie right next to your baby, especially when they are so teeny tiny.
Talking about babies sleeping I've seen the Whisbear everywhere recently and want to find out more about its magical powers. Its been no secret here on my blog that when Isabella was a baby she didn't sleep very well at all, in fact we didn't have a solid nights sleep until she over well over a year old. So this time around I'm willing to try anything and everything to help this little one sleep peacefully. The Whisbear plays white noise, has a CRYsensor and is a sensory toy as well.
I've always wanted a wall of inspiring quotes somewhere in our house, but never found quite the right place. I think having some beautiful inspiring quote prints in both Isabella's new bedroom and the baby's bedroom will be such lovely additions. After all with two children I'm sure they'll be days I need to focus on an inspiring quote, rather than focusing on the busy mess that will inevitably surround me. This stunning floral 'She believed she could. So she did.' print and Roald Dahl 'If you have good thoughts' Sunbeams print are from FreddieTheKid on Etsy.
How beautiful are these Personalised Pastel Wooden Blocks from Myla & Oscar? We don't know the name this little one will be having yet, so this would have to be an exciting post birth order. They are made to order and would just look so cute on a nursery shelf or in photos. They'd also make a very special gift for a baby shower or new arrival - *hint hint friends & family*
The white stars paired with the dusky pink background makes this Nobodinoz Changing Pad from Molly Meg a pretty addition to any changing bag. It's made with slightly cushioned fabric, which makes it nicer for little bottoms when being changed on harder surfaces. The Changing Pad is available in a wider range of patterns, but this is the one that really stood out to me.
The packaging for this Wee Gallery Organic Muslin Swaddle in Wild from Monkey McCoy is so unique and cute. Muslin cloths and swaddles are every parents saviour, as they're so multi-purpose and make pretty photo backdrops too.
If you know me well then you'll know that my favourite animal is the penguin; the way they walk, work together and their general cuteness has made them my favourite for years. So of course when I saw this adorable Pitter Patter Penguin: Baby's First Soft Book in Foyles it was always going to make it onto this wishlist.
In an attempt to make the nursery a bit more personal for the little one, rather than them essential sleeping in Isabella's old room, this Personalised Cloud Hanging Decoration from Paper & Wool really stood out to me. I love the font and colour choices available, such a pretty addition to any nursery.
This Rainbow Teether from blossom & BEAR adds a nice bit of colour, helps to relieve the pain of teething and looks pretty too. I know we won't need this for a while yet, but you can never be too organised and we all know how quickly time flies when children are involved.
What was/is on your baby wishlist?
