At first, I thought it was difficult to think that I needed anything for Baby Girl #3. She is due at the end of August, and the girls will be 3 (Lia) and 2 (Siena). I have had these three so close together, and we really have everything you could possibly need.
Or so I thought.

Of course, I start remembering/daydreaming about all of the things I wish I had had when the girls were born/new. And the list just keeps growing! It's funny though, literally every single thing that I need/want (besides #9) is not something you can buy at any ole Target or Babies R Us or Buy Buy Baby.

Anyway, enough of the yapping, check out the list:

1. Girasol Woven Wrap: I have an Ergo Baby Carrier (that I will hopefully buy an infant insert for - trying to find it used since some people really don't like it) as well as a Wrapsody Bali Baby Stretch Wrap (similar to the Moby or Boba Wrap, but less stretchy, so WAY more comfortable after a couple hours of wearing). Anyway, the Wrapsody was amazing for the newborn stage up until I could wear the girls in the Ergo, around 14 lbs.

So why do you "need" this woven wrap?!

Woven wraps have so many benefits: they are extremely strong (because of the way they are woven) and much cooler than stretchy wraps. They can be worn from the day baby is born until they are well into toddlerhood (although some fabric blends are more supportive than others for heavy toddlers). They can also be worn dozens and dozens of different ways (called ‘carries’), and baby feels secure to feel the boundaries rather than bouncing against a fabric that moves away from the him/her.

2. Little Pal with Wood Teether: This thing is just too stinking cute! I honestly feel like you can never have enough teething toys. They are so useful, which means they get destroyed pretty quickly. I really love this one because it is constructed of soft & absorbent 100% organic cotton. You can dampen the knots and place in freezer for extra soothing relief. I love that!

3. A really pretty and functional nursing bra: I've never had a good nursing bra. I hate that so much. I want something pretty, comfortable and functional. Is this too much to ask?!?! So, I have hopes that this time I will {spend the money} find something that I really love. I know it will get great use!

4. Kangaroo Care Nursing Necklaces: I just think these are SO awesome!!! I love the amazing colors, the beautiful design, and that baby would be distracted by this while nursing/bottle feeding! Here is Kangaroo Care's Etsy's description of these beauties: ♥ are 100% natural, vegan, human and eco-friendly ♥ help to catch your baby's attention while breastfeeding / bottle-feeding ♥ perfect accessory for babywearing mommies ♥or use it all the time you want to catch your baby's attention and stimulate him or her to look and explore ♥ stimulate your baby to touch, look and explore ♥ completely safe to chew on ♥ different textures help to evolve your baby's fine motor skills ♥ make a perfect baby shower gift ♥ colorful and fun to wear!

5. Earth Mama Angel Baby Shampoo/Body Wash: I can't want this stuff enough. I am in love with this shampoo/body wash. I had it for a short time with both of the girls, and I never really re-stock up on it because 1. it's SUPER expensive and 2. I would have to buy it at Amazon (or Zoolikins, a locally owned awesome store) because it's not at your typical stores. But it is literally the best shampoo/body wash you can put on your child. And it has a score of 0 with the Environmental Working Group's Cosmetic Database, which is the least toxic score of a product possible!

6. Bamboobies Reusable Nursing Pads: I loved my reusable nursing pads I got as a hand-me-down from a kind friend. This look super soft, and they have an overnight, thicker one in this package, so I think they'd be perfect.

7. Stella Bella Designs Nursing Scarf: How cute is this?! I will be having the baby in the hot as heck summer, but eventually, it will be winter, and I will have this awesome infinity scarf that doubles as a nursing cover. I really think it's so adorable!

8. aden + anais Burpy Bib: I mean, aden+anais products are drool-worthy and the softest blankets/sleep sacks I've ever purchased. I can't express enough - you have to go feel for yourself - how incredibly soft and luscious these products are. So, naturally, I "need" a burpy bib because I've never one!

9. Graco Nautilus 3-in-1 Car Seat: This is honestly a real need. I have three girls that are 3 and under. The reality is, I need to fit three car seats in the back of my car - so my options are to buy another infant carrier that will fit in the back with two convertible car seats OR buy this booster/car seat and just use the two convertible car seats for the two youngest girls. I honestly don't know what to do. But hopefully this car seat will be my problem solver!

So, that's the scoop!

How many kiddos do you have? Was there anything significant you think I should have on here for a third babe?!
