  • clothing and diapers- thats it as far as necessities - you will need 2 or 3 wraps to swaddle your little one, a baby sling was my god send but may not be for you, really, just get a couple of onesies and a box of diapers and see what your little one needs, if she needs lots of rocking a swing or a sling, if she needs noise a radio, if she is a vomit-y baby you will need burp cloths - it all depends on who comes to live with you -good luck and enjoy this time it is special and awesome x-x

  • here are some basic things... diapers, wipes, diaper cream, baby bath tub (or you can use your sink) baby wash, wash cloths,baby lotion, nail clippers(the ones with the magnifying lens are very nice) bottles, if your breast feeding you'll want a pump and storage containers, if not formula.thermomitor and baby fever reducer just in case. swaddling blankets, crib, crib sheets get a few cause accidents always happen lol. umm, baby clothes, for winter i find footie pj nice and onsies, car seat and a car seat cover if you live in a cold state. baby monitor, burp rags, a rocking chair helps, babies like the swaying motion.
    ** there are alot of luxery things out there so go according to your money situation. always have food and diapers first. here is some advice... nap when the baby naps cause you will be tired, and don't be ashamed to ask for help when you need it. everyone needs a break sometimes. good luck to you!

  • Diapers mainly. I asked for diapers and my baby is 6 mos old & I haven't had to buy any yet.....though soon. Clothes can always be bought on clearance (seasonal) and thrift stores/goodwill. Lots of people get rid of brand new things....especially for small babies. See what you get at your shower first. People go overboard on newborn items at showers. You will need a bathtub and baby Tylenol & Motrin & gas drops (store brand is fine) too keep on hand. Bottles (I like Vent Air because they reduce gas.) Burp cloths (or you can use anything-even a soft dish towel) and a place for baby to sleep. If you get a used crib that has a drop side, be sure to screw the sides so that it won't come down. (new health hazzard.) Also a humidifier. Hope this helps.
