Help please...what to get a 2nd child for Xmas...

Best high chair? (We all know it's the Ikea one really but refusniks will bring us tales of Tripp-Trappery and booster seats). Have you discovered an excellent finger food snack, toothbrush, bib or more importantly A Lipstick That Really Does Stay On?

hi all

wondering if you could help my failing brain (seriously'differently rested' at the mo! as 8mth old doodle has not got the idea of sleeping yet!)...i have 2 dds...1st is 2y9m and 2nd is 8mths. The question of what do the girls want for Xmas keeps rearing its ugly head....first dd is ok, can request craft/dressing up etc that she loves...but what to get 2nd dd who has all 1st child's toys at her disposal and I have no more room at the inn for toys...argh!! also,I know she won't care\have an idea about xmas anyway...so any ideas very gratefully received!

TIA

How about a nice outfit (I'm assuming that she exists on hand-me-downs usually, like most second kids) - or stick some cash in a bank account for when she's older?

My son will be 10 months at Christmas, but is a first child, so he still has plenty of room for more toys. I did notice that you didn't mention any books, though. My little guy loves his books, but he's really hard on them. (He fell asleep the other night with one in each hand and stops crying and lies down for a story from his favourite one at bedtime!) When we get around to a Number Two we'll need a whole new supply of books because there won't be much left of his.

We live in the US where it's almost impossible to find toys that aren't made in China (and subject to a new recall every week), so we're going to make an online wish list of pre-approved gifts for the proud grandparents to choose from. No battery-operated musical toys and no Chinese plastic down our chimney thank you!
