Now that mom-to-be is expecting her second baby, it’s probably safe to assume, she already has many of the baby essentials. This doesn’t mean, she wouldn’t appreciate replacing some of her old baby stuff with some new baby stuff. Onesies, bibs, blankets, pacifiers, and feeding accessories are often ready for an update by the time baby # 2 comes along. 

What’s a baby shower without a brand new, teddy bear?  Give baby a security blanket or lovey of their very own.

Gift baskets are the perfect way to combine practical and creative ideas.  A gift basket can be for baby, or the whole family. Mom, dad and siblings are fun and easy to buy for too.

  • Custom Pewter or silver jewelery (this also a great gift for mom).
  • Birth certificate holders and frames.
  • Hand print and foot print kits.
  • Piggy banks.
  • Personalized story books.

Baby Layettes are an ideal gift for a second baby. The second born, will have plenty of opportunity to wear all the hand-downs, from big-brother or big sister. Something new and cozy, for a new baby, just makes sense. 

on baby’s gender, HE or SHE may need a whole new wardrobe. If that’s
case that case, look for sizes that a newborn can grow into.

Little headbands, hats, hair clips, and fancy socks, will only make her
more adorable.

Give little boys sporty hats, cool shoes, or stuff that’s, “just like dads.”

Diapers for a Second Baby Shower

Second baby shower gift ideas and diapers go very well together.  Babies need lots of diapers! Diaper cakes, baskets, caddies, and totes make some of the best baby shower gifts.  Every new mommy will appreciate them.  Make sure you have an idea of her diapering preference… disposable, bio degradable, cloth, and so on.

A fabulous diaper bag is a mommy essential!  Baby items will ware quickly when they are used a lot, this includes diaper bags. Look for bags that are stylish and have enough room to hold the contents for two children. If dad will be doing lots of baby toting, choose colors and patterns that are gender neutral.  You may even want to shop for bags that are just for fathers.

Baby Gear and big ticket items are a good fit for group gifting.  Parents may need to
upgrade a stroller or car seat. Make the car seat a convertible ( a seat
that can go from birth to toddler).  Make the stroller a double ( a
stroller for two children).  Gift cards from Visa, MasterCard, or a favorite baby store might be just the thing for a second baby gift.
