  • PS don't be fooled by cute baby bathtubs. They leak, crack, mold, drip, etc. Review them hardcore before you decide on one.

  • A sling, a swing, and diapers of various sizes. Also if you decided to BF I think it would be really handy to have a storage system for pumped milk that includes freezer bags.

  • One of my most used items is actually receiving blankets, I used them for EVERYTHING with my first son, so I made sure to have at least a dozen this time around.

  • Bouncy chair,
    pack & play,
    cloth diapers & pins (they make great burp cloths, peepee covers, make shift bibs and just in case you can use them as diapers),
    a tub of a & d ointment
    Oh and a boppy great for breast or bottle feedings.
