Lauren Conrad is known for her fashion sense, and it seems her future baby will also have the latest must-have accessories.
The Hills alum, 33, has partnered with Amazon Baby Registry for an exhaustive wish list of products ahead of welcoming her second child.
Los Angeles-based designer Lauren has revealed the mothering essentials that she will be snapping up for baby number two, from some $7 toys to a very pricey $900 self-rocking sleeper crib.

‘This time around, it’s all about getting the entire family ready for the baby’s arrival,’ the fashion designer said on the Amazon page.
‘A lot of cool tech came out since Liam [two] was born. I’m excited about using a bunch of new products in the baby’s nursery to help me track feedings, diapers, and other baby details I used to track on my phone. It’s a game changer,’ she added.
So, what is going to make life easier for Lauren et al?
High tech: The self-rocking SNOO Smart Sleeper is included on Lauren’s list, with an impressive pricetag of $906
Resting: The $249.99 baby swing, left, can be controlled by bluetooth, whereas the simple crib, right, ($239.99) is as straight forward as it gets
For starters, the SNOO Smart Sleeper, which retails for $1,200 elsewhere but is available on Amazon for $906. There’s over 60 positive reviewers for the high-tech self-rocking bassinet on the site. And it seems that Lauren is on to a winner.
On Amazon, parents have called the bassinet a ‘miracle’.
‘After [four] weeks of baby only doing [two to three] hour sleep chunks at a time at night and having to spend [one to two] hours a night trying to get him to fall asleep, I broke down and bought one. Best. Decision. Ever,’ a new mom said.
Lauren also has her eye on the bluetooth-enables 4moms mamaRoo 4 baby swing ($249.99).
Of the popular swing, one reviewer said, ‘This thing is expensive but it’s giving me about 3 hrs a day right now with my hands free so I can get a couple of things done without a baby freaking out in the background. Hard to put a price on that.’
Essentials: LC’s list includes a baby monitor ($149.99), left, and a $119.99 non-toxic mattress for the crib, right
Transport: In her ‘out and about’ section, Lauren has included a $299.99 playard, left, and a $899.99 stroller, right
Add on: The fancy stroller will also require a RumbleSeat ($189.99) for when the baby reaches three months
The list includes a convertible crib ($239.99) which requires a mattress, non-toxic of course, ($119.99). The nursery room will also be complete with the addition of a rocking chair by Delta Children ($269.99) and a baby/breathing monitor from Cocoon Cam Plus ($149.99).
A portable playard, also by brand mamaRoo, is on the list too. The $299.99 playard is for Lauren when she’s ‘out and about’ and should not be confused with the stroller ($899.99), detachable Rumble Seat ($189.99), car seat ($199.99), baby carrier ($69.99) or baby bouncer ($99.99).
While there is no shortage of somewhat costly items on the baby list, there are also toys – like a cute elephant that plays music ($24.90) and, naturally it being a California-based family, a plush avocado toy ($7.99).
In terms of other essentials, Lauren has listed a thermometer, bottle warmers, baby wipes, nipple pads, diaper rash cream and picture books.
Convenient: When on the go, Lauren will opt for a $199.99 car seat, left, or a handy $69.99 baby carrier, right
Cute: It’s not all high-tech gadgets as there’s also cute toys for under $25, such as this avocado, left, and musical elephant, right, on the list
Style-conscious Lauren, who has her own line with Kohl’s, opted to include a leather diaper bag by Jessica Alba’s eco-friendly brand, The Honest Company ($142.49).
For when future baby Tell progresses to being fed solid foods, Lauren has included a sleek $259.99 high chair.

Feeding time: An adjustable $259.99 high chair available in a range of colors seems like a good investment
Preparing for a baby’s arrival is a costly time, so Amazon’s Baby Registry cleverly offers savings for parents, through the 15 per cent ‘completion discount’.
The e-commerce giant also has a Diaper Fund, which allows friends and family to contribute to the cost of purchasing diapers through Amazon.
‘I know I’ll need more diapers. The Baby Registry Diaper Fund is a really convenient way for friends and family to gift you something you really need, without having to hide 20 boxes somewhere in the house,’ Lauren said.

Lauren revealed she was expecting her second child in an Instagram post she shared in early April.
‘It’s been hard to keep this one to myself! Very excited to share that our family will be getting a little bigger this year,’ she told her six million followers.
Conrad first found fame in 2004 when she was cast in the MTV reality show, The Hills, however she declined to appear on this year’s reboot, The Hills: New Beginnings.
Keeping busy during her pregnancy, the lifestyle author and blogger announced the launch of her own podcast, Lauren Conrad: Asking for a Friend, earlier this year.
