  • It's a good idea to stock up on diapers and wipes. Baby powder. Formula if you're going to use it. Crib sheets. Bottles.

  • I think that you got it all! I will tell you that if you don't have help around make a few dishes and throw them in the freezer so on the days that you are to sleepy you will still have a nice meal!

  • One of those small bathing tubs to use in the kitchen to give your baby a bath. A really good diaper bag, because that will become your purse for the next 2.5 years or until your baby is potty trained.

  • While you're still pregnant, cook up a storm and freeze in small portion sizes. Once the baby comes you're not going to want to start cooking and you may not have the energy. This way you can pull something out of the freezer microwave it and you have an instant meal. I made chili, hearty soups, lasagna, stew and salmon burgers.

  • A play mat where they lay on their back and there's toys above him to bat at. A diaper Geenie! It will save you on garbage bags. You'll end up taking out half full bags because of the SMELL! Tub toys, baby socks, hats, a baby tooth brush, baby shampoo. You may also want to get a toy bar that straps onto the car seat.

  • Ok long list, and you don't HAVE to have all this to bring a child home A comfy chair preferably a rocker or glider or recliner, diapers and wipes. Extra face clothes or rags for spit ups over the shoulder and OMG moments (the more the better) infant safe washer detergent, pacifiers if you want to use them, bottles. Stock up your medicine cabinet with baby tylenol, mylicon, get a GOOD thermometer for kids because this is stuff you won't need right away but probably space buying untilo 11 PM some night when you need it. A baby sling or other cling to you contraption, stock up on your own meds and staple items--especially stuff you don't think your SO will be able to pick up for you, bathing items, clothes--figure on at least 3 outfits a day for a week and you are on the money. Sun hats or mittens depending on what season we are looking at. I am not a diaper genie fan but work out a system and be ready to go.
