I need a list! Please help!

Where can I find a list of items I should have for the first year? Anything from the crib to the ointments to the little outlet protectors for when he starts to crawl? I want to make sure I have everything!

Thanks Ladies!

  • Get a copy of Baby Bargins. It has a great list, as well as lots of advice from tons of parents about the best brands, the worst ones, what features are useful, what are just expensive (heavy) add-ons.
