it is normal to have panic and think that you haven't gotten enough. the bottom line is, all the magazines and tv and all your friends will tell you that you can't live without a boppy pillow, nursing pads, bibs, etc.
well. i nursed for three and a half months with no boppy, i used maybe four of the huge box of pads i bought, and my daughter never used a bib til she was seven months and started teething.
my advice is to have enough clothes to get you through (all the used shit people wanna give you, take it. they can wear that stuff at home or whatever. a kid that poops and throws up constantly will make you appreciate used clothing lol.) while i was pregnant i was very low on cash so every payday i bought a pkg of diapers, different sizes, so i'd have some forever. nbs, ones, twos and so forth. you need baby wash, lotion, wipes. bottles, jammies, and lots of help from others.
