  • Diapers, diapers, and more diapers (that is if you aren't doing cloth). Wipes, diaper rash cream, thermometer, baby wash, breast pads (the ones that block leaking).
    Good luck and congrats!
    There's probably more, I just can't think of it now.

  • furniture, diapers, wipes, shampoo, wash, butt cream, first aid kid, grooming kit, mittens, booties, LOTS more clothes, bibs, baby laundry detergent.
    Are your 3-6 mo stuff for cold weather? You need some cold weather clothes.
    Jammies..those sleep sacks are great, and the arms usually fold over the hands so you don't need seperate mittens.

    at least 100 diapers
    3 tubs of wipes

  • Burp rags also! a lot of those.. we used swaddle blankets but you can use receiving blankets at first, premake a couple meals too that week before - I loved the sleep sacks also when the cord is still on, it won't tug at it to hurt baby,.grooming kit for the nails - baby hats, thermometer..... oh how exciting

  • You can not have too many baby wash clothes. You need a boppy, breatpads without the plastic liner, q-tips, a bottle of alcohol, a suitcase size pack of super pads, tank tops to wear under you shirts so when you lift your shirt to breastfeed all your side is not exposed. that way you can pull your top shirt up & tank down, big blankets for draping while breastfeeding, motrin for the cramps & afterbirth pain, A couple of cases of water you will need to drink up & its easier than carrying a cup. A couple of breastmilk storage bags since you already have a pump and a couple of books you wouldnt mind reading to the baby. I often spent the time nursing the baby as a way to squeeze in reading to the baby. Good luck.

  • Breastfriend is da best! If ur serious about nursing: pack of different breast pads ( c which u like best), find a local support group for bf mamas, learn how to swaddle, get so involved the minute ur baby arrives (u nurse n he burps n changes diapers), buy a nursing book (look on la leche league website), and the rest u'll figure out. Good luck!

  • Yah..what they said ^. You might think about getting a swing.lots of breast pads,lotion for your sore nipples.It's been so long for me I don't even know what it's called.Get a good car seat.Just wondering but...did you have a baby shower?A bassinette works wonderful.Also.what really helped me when I had my kids & what my daughter-in-law used alot & that was a cereal bottle.It helps when you start feeding them cereal.Hopes this helps you. OH are going to need some pads for yourself.Because you'll be spotting for awhile.Take care sweetie.You'll be just fine.: )
