5 products you didn't have for baby #1 that you can't live without for baby #2

Written by Bebe au Lait Accounting


Posted on July 16 2018

Being a first time Mom is like a fairytale - everything is fresh and new, you have tons of fabulous new baby products in pristine condition, and everyone showers you and the new baby with attention. Each new discovery about baby is so magical - even the gross stuff has it's charm. You might lose sleep, but the excitement and thrill of your precious new baby makes you see everything with rose-colored glasses!

Having a second baby is more like paging through a well loved book - you know what to expect, and although you've been here before - you look forwards to each new chapter with joy. 

5 products you didn't have for baby #1 that you can't live without for baby #2

Instead of having everything shiny and new, you're probably using some of the same nursery products, infant clothes, stroller, and supplies that you used for baby #1. And that's awesome - #momlife is all about being creative with your time and resources. 

However, having the second baby means you're probably a lot more focused on efficiency and results than you were for baby #1! You need to do more with your time and money - and we're here to help. 

At Bebe au Lait, we're passionate about creating beautiful, high quality products with a maximum of versatility. We know that there's only so many hours in a day, so we try to make life easier for parents.

That's why we've created these 5 products that you didn't have for baby #1 that you can't live without for baby #2!
