The Baby Products I’m Loving Second Time Around

by Madeleine Borgersen

The newborn bubble with your second is different. In some ways easier, in others, more challenging. Here are the products I’m loving the second time around.

Owlet Smart Sock

$400

Your second is going to get sicker, quicker. Unlike your first, you can’t keep them in that pristine bubble as easily so being able to monitor their o2 and heart rate as they recover from their first bout of sickness gives so much peace of mind!

BedNest

The perfect bassinet, the BedNest makes co-sleeping a breeze and can be angled up if your bundle gets a cold (super handy!) It also packs down easily for travel.

Bugaboo Donkey

I changed over my pram when we found out we were expecting to a double, the Bugaboo Donkey2. I love the versatility. Whether it’s our newborn in his capsule, the bassinet or the two side by side, there’s plenty of room for everyone and everything.

Lollipop Baby Monitor
