What am I forgetting to buy for baby?

I have diapers, bottles, clothes (onsies, hats, sleepers, outfits), 2 packs of Binkys, hand mittens, bassinet, teething rings....etc
I still need some the big things but anything I'm forgetting that you couldn't live without???

  • How about a medicine kit? Something with a thermometer, dropper, nasal bulb, fingernail clippers etc. We got a good one at Walmart for 20 bucks...

  • I got the Dr. Brown bottles, BPA free, so there aren't any inserts... spit up towels are a good one though

  • wipes, burp cloths, bottle cleaner.

  • LOTS of burp cloths (I found that cloth diapers work a hell of a lot better than actual "burp" cloths...other Moms?). How are you with bedding? I bought more sheets than I needed for our bassinet, it really didn't get dirty, so you don't need to go nuts! Do you have a Boppy? Nipple cream?

    Honestly, other than diapers, wipes, and onesies, this was all I needed for quite awhile!

  • burp clothes and yes i agree with katie the cloth diapers worked much better. other then that it sounds like your set. maybe a bobby pillow if your going to breastfeed but other wise u dont really need one.

  • Bouncer and a swing. I never used the mittens or teething rings with any of my kids so not sure about those.

  • I agree that the boppy and the bouncers are great...and I preferred to use cloth diapers instead of burp cloths as well. If you've got extra money to spend, you can always stock up on diapers and wipes. Do you have socks? a few toys?
