  • You need a bed..(crib or bassinet), a swing is nice (but not necessary)..and obviously a carseat. Stroller is nice but not necessary at this point.

  • a car seat, diapers, bottles, baby soap, clothes, and blankets. and somewhere that the baby will sleep. oh and whipes. you might want to get some formula if you arent breastfeeding. if you are then you will want to get some breast pads for yourself. and maybe a breastpump, if you are going to be pumping

  • diapers, wipes, something for the skin (in case your baby will have diaper rash), lots of onsies, pajamas, def. formula (u wont know if u can breastfeed until the baby is born and even then its better in case u cant breastfeed anymore for some reason), bottles (for formula and/or in case baby daddy wants to feed the baby), socks (warm feed is very important for babies), a bed of course, a stroller (unless u want to sit at home all day), car seat (otherwise u wont be able to bring your baby home safe).

    for yourself: as said before, nursing pads, then regular pads (probably lots of them), comfy pants.
