  • A Car seat: you cant take him/her home without one! A crib/bassinet, diapers, bottles(if bottle feeding) Receiving blankets, burp clothes, wipes, onesies, warm jammies, diaper bag, different pacis, if your going to offer them, wash cloths, hooded towels, body wash, first aid kit, nail clippers, comb, Booger sucker (lol I dont know the proper namer for it). I could go on and on :) GL to you Kara!

  • I've had 4 babies. You need a lot less then what "people" tell you you need. =) Essentials are receiving blankets, onesies, diapers, pj's, wipes, desitin, baby soap and shampoo, rubbing alcohol and q tips for the cord, socks, and change of sheets, in case you have a uper. If your breast feeding, some sort of cover up, and I recomend a couple button up shirts, because its much easier to get to your breasts. If your bottle feeding, bottles. its been a while, so I'm sure I missed a few things

  • there is a link below that may help but in my opinion you just need some clothes, diapers, bottles, car seat, dont forget the socks and caps, thermometer, shampoo, bodywash, bottle cleaner, lotion, powder, butt paste, and a lot of love.

  • what about those little hats newborns with earaches are not fun. Those mitten thingys to avoid scratches, And in the winter i like to have a nice carseat cover helps to keep baby warm and keeps the harsh winds out
