Tell me what to buy for a newborn!

Now I have to know, lol.  What would you moms suggest buying and what would you suggest skipping?  Any answers are greatly appreciated.  This can be furniture, clothes, ANYTHING.

  • Hmm Do buy bottles if formula feeding, breast pump if nursing, car seat is a must, personally I couldn't live without a bouncy seat.

    Skip the fancy diaper pail, wipe warmer, tons of newborn outfits (unless you have a preemie, they grow out of them in 2 seconds).

  • I used...Swing, bouncy seat, crib and or bassinet, car seat, wipes, diapers, several outfits.
    I used a changing mat that came with the diaper bag for all my diaper changes and I changed them on the floor or couch. My changing table never got used! I used a small trashcan with grocery bags as the diaper trash and just took it out once a day or so depending on need. I had a breast pump, bottles, breast pads for leakage...hmm.

  • I also didn't mess with the bottle warmer. Unless your BF and heating up your breast milk. When I switched to formula, I just left a gallon of water on the counter and mixed the formula by the bottle with that heating required.
