  • Hmmmm I could have lived without any of the things that the people mentioned. One of our only things was blankets for swaddling and plenty of them for leaks and spit ups.

  • My boppy for breastfeeding, lanolin for my chapped nips, and a light soft blanket for swaddling.

  • BURP CLOTHS AND lot of them. Id say the only other thing was my boppy as I used it to sit on, to nurse with, to keep the baby propped up in becasue of severe reflux and to wrap around my poor sore tummy.

  • Mine were swaddling blankets and his swing, he was colicly and the only way to get him to sleep at times was being swaddled and/or moving..which after walking him around my father's house while i was on vacation...a swing was a must have.
