  • You CAN NOT choose just ONE thing.

    Since babies NEED multiple things.

  • Depends on if you are getting presents from others. I could have gone 9 months without buying anything for my child. We got tons of clothes, a bassinet, crib, diapers, wipes, bottles, formula, yadda yadda. Something I got that I REALLY loved was a moses basket. It made it really easy to take my sleeping baby from room to room with me and was nice when I was breast feeding to keep her in bed with me. But most important is probably formula if you aren't bf.

  • its hard to choose what would be most important, I would say either clothes or diapers.

  • A safe car seat.
    Ultimately, a baby needs clothes to stay warm, diapers, car seat, and a place to sleep. Everything else is gravy.

  • As a gift, I think diapers. As a parent a carseat ;-)
