Last Round up Haul of Things for Baby #2

I really enjoy reading these types of posts on other blogs myself, so I thought I'd show you a few of the latest things we've added to the collection of things that we have for baby boy number two. Some of the things I've already spoken about or shown you in previous non-haul type posts but I thought it would be nice to do a little round-up type post anyway.

Jellycat Bunny

We picked up this rather cute little Jellycat bunny in John Lewis and decided that he will be a gift from Ethan to his little brother when he's born. We thought it would be nice and sentimental as hopefully this will go on to become baby's favourite teddy and bedtime comfort, just like Ethan's Jellycat doggy is to him. 

Striped cotton all-in-one

This gorgeous grey and white striped all-in-one from The Essential One is what we have picked out as baby's coming home outfit. The cotton is super soft and it has a stretchy material sort of feel to it that I just know he'll be really comfortable in. I love the colours and style too, I thought it was perfect for a little boy.

Booties and newborn sized socks

Both of the above are from John Lewis again, I love the little nautical-style theme of them. I think the  nautical theme is going to be really trendy for little boys this summer and with baby going to be a little summer baby, I just couldn't resist. 

Baby all-in-one sleep suit

I picked this little sleep suit up in Gap last month but it was in the sale, so I'm not sure if they'll still have them or not. I really love the colour and design, again, I thought it looked pretty trendy so I couldn't leave it behind. 

I've seen a few really good reviews floating around the internet on the Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine, it's purpose is to Make a fresh bottle at the correct temperature in less than two minutes whilst removing any impuririties that are present in the water. From the reviews, I really like how easy it looks to use and how much easier it seems to make things when preparing bottles. I haven't set ours up yet, but I'm really hoping that it'll be as good as the reviews suggest. 

3 Pack Large Muslins

I got this pack of three large muslin cloth's in John Lewis for around £20. I know that might seem quite steep for muslin cloth's but as I know I'll use them so often, I wanted something a little different to the plain old boring white ones I had last time around when Ethan was born. I have some of the aiden + anais muslin cloths too and I love the design they have on them and the fact that they are meant to stay soft no matter how many times they get washed (unlike the cheap white ones I had with Ethan that got stained very quickly and then went hard in the washing machine). Another thing I like about these ones in particular is the fact that they are quite large so when clean can potentially be used for swaddling or as a little light blanket for baby on warm summer days.

Sleep bag

This little sleep bag from Baby Gap caught my eye instantly, mostly because it's just so mini! I cannot tell you how utterly soft it is, it's ridiculously snug and I couldn't think of anything nicer to sleep in - I want an adult-sized one for myself! I couldn't put it down in the shop so it had to come home with us and I really can't wait to put baby in it!

Baby boy bear three pack of vests

These gorgeous super soft little vests came in a three pack from The Essential One and I can't get over how utterly adorable and mini they are! I also have the matching baby grows to go with them and I just know that they are going to look adorable on.



  1. I think that every child need a Jellycat bunny. My two both love theirs and Flump has her own one already (which we used to announce to the kids) and I'm definitely taking it to hospital with me so she can start bonding right away...!
    That cloud sleep suit is adorable too, he's such a lucky little man. Can't wait to hear the news he has arrived now. x

  2. Oh what lovely bits for little one Alex! I can't wait to know if we have a boy or a girl so I can get shopping properly ;-) xx

    1. Thank you :) It's so much fun baby shopping!xx

  3. Aww such a lovely collection of baby things :)

    I'm obsessed with Jellycat cuddly toys, they're so cute and incredibly soft. We have the Baby GAP sleeping bag, which really helped my daughter to sleep in her moses basket. Before we started using a sleeping bag she would refuse to sleep in it!

    Those muslins too <3

    1. I fell straight in love with it as soon as I saw it! xx

  5. SUCH cute bits Alex, I do love a baby haul :) random question but how were you planning to make up baby's first bottles when they only take 2oz at a time? The smallest bottles perfect prep makes is 4oz and we can't decide the best way to do it before that? :s
    Jo XOXO

    1. Thanks Jo. I think we'll probably just make up 4oz and see how we go. I haven't quite figured it out yet as we're not sure how much milk baby will take. xx

  6. How cute is the striped all in one from Essential One, the perfect going home outfit. I have my eye on the Tommee Tippee prep machine too

  7. I love everything you've bought! I've got the Jellycat bunny too, it's so soft I love it. Thinking of purchasing the prep machine should breastfeeding not work out for us too, it looks handy!
