Can someone put in order from the most to the least thing I need for baby? Like what can wait until after baby is born?

My baby is due August 9th. So I know oviously I don't need the snowsuit right now and I know I probably wont need the onsies right now since I have outfits for my little girl to wear in the summer especially the long sleeve ones that I am using for winter months for the short sleeve shirts. But here is a list of things I have for baby yet to buy.

bottle brush (to wash bottles)
baby book (I am big into writing all their firsts I did with my other 2 as well)
paper towels (I plan on making my own diaper wipes)
baby monitor
short sleeves onsies to go under clothes
long sleeve onsies to go under her short sleeve shirts
thermometor since ours isn't working right
grooming kit
outfit for pictures (we don't do the hospital pictures so we do the walmart pictures when baby is 2 weeks old.)

  • Honestly I would say Bottles brush diaper rash cream, tylenol, gas relief, even orajel some babies teeth early! also the thermometer of course blankies and clothes and paper towels for your wipes the baby monitor can probably wait cause you will probably be glued to the baby for a while also the snow suit can wait a grooming kit isnt a major but the nails will need clipped a baby book can prolly wait Hope i helped!!!

  • actually no I don't because everything was given to me with the other 2. I didn't even have to buy them any clothes up until now and they are 3 and 6.

  • If you are going to co-sleep or us a cradle you won't need a crib right away. Also I think they are supposed to be six weeks or more before they go in a swing. I mean seriously you could get by with a carseat, clothes, diapers, and bottles.

  • I always used the swing when baby was brought home from the hospital.

  • get these items for the arrival:

    baby monitor, baby swing, vibrator chair, baby bath tub (netted), baby wash, wash clothes, diapers, wipes, formula if needed, bottles, pacifiers, burp clothes, car seat, pack and play, boppy, receiving blankets

    I already have the baby swing, I wasn't going to do a vibrator chair since I have this tent type thing I can lay the baby in. I am not going to do the baby bath tub either I gave my girls baths in the sink. I already have the baby wash, wash cloths, diapers. I plan to breast feed so don't need formula but I have a breast pump. I already have the bottles and binkis. I don't use burp cloths I use recieving blankets which I already have. I have the carseat already. I have 2 back in plays already, but I only used them a total of 3 times and I have 2 kids. Nver used them. I wasn't going to do the boppy this time either I didn't think it was a thing I had to have I thought I could use a pillow just the same.
