  • do you plan on nursing? nursing pad, nipple cream, and a boppy works wonders for that. I never had enough burp cloths. how about things like a thermometer, nail clippers, baby lotion/wash. I know there are lists online, huggies would send them to me all the time. Oh I also liked those swaddler blankets.

  • You "need" alot less than you think you do. What are you going to do about feeding? If you're going to breastfeed you might want to get a pump (even a cheap hand pump) and a couple of bottles so dad can bottle feed after the first couple of weeks. If not you need formula and bottles. But don't buy too many bottles because sometimes babies are picky about nipples and you can get more when you know what he or she likes. Get a couple of small towels and baby wash cloths are nice and soft. You also need a few receiving blankets. Plus a diaper bag.  Also a rectal thermometer.  That's all I can think of right now.
