It's been 10 years for me! I've gone to a couple baby stores or like the baby aisle in Target just to get a sense of what's out there/what might be useful, and I have a panic attack every time.

It's not that hard! wth is my problem??

In 2010, it was a 10 year gap for me too and it totally was like being a new mom! This time since we're having another girl, I'm thrilled I have all the big stuff, a lot of clothes will carry over and there isn't anything we have to have that we're missing!

I feel for you both! Been there!!

A little bit. My "baby" will be 4 in September so getting back in the mindset of what to do about diapering/sleeping arrangements/feeding is a total shift. They have a lot more cooler things out now than even 4 years ago.

I remember even just going from my 1st to my 2nd a lot changed between just the 2 years!

Yup. I got rid of everything so we are starting from scratch. The only things I have is a bumbo seat cuz I didn't actually toss it out, and my moby wraps cuz they were packed away when we had our yard sale.

I have definitely felt like we are starting from scratch as we got rid of a lot of stuff when we moved. But then we didn't buy a whole lot in the first place. (My DD is 4 now). The whole new born thing seems like it was so long ago...I am almost going to have to re-leard everything.

I do! My son is going to be almost 4 when baby is born so it hasn't been that long since I went through it. It sure does feel like it though. I have been browsing online for baby products or replacement parts for things I already have and nothing is the same. The other day I had to do an internet search to figure out when the second trimester started, you would think I had never been pregnant before!

My youngest will be 4 when baby is born but I've already done this spacing two other times!

The stuff I'm kinda dreading is the baby proofing like baby gates.

My "baby" is 12, so it's been a long time for me! Each day I'm being reminded of things that pop up in pregnancy that I'd long since forgotten about, and I am totally lost in the baby section of the stores - they've come up with so many new gadgets that I'm completely confused now.
