What are must have actual NEEDED items that I should add?
Some items I already have from shopping at garage sales but since this is my first baby I feel like when ever I look at my list I am missing needed items.
I already have a tub, an infant bouncer (the ones the lay in) and some clothing/toys.
For the Amazon list I have clothing, socks, onesies, booties, the mittens for the newborn, a grooming kit, receiving blankets, wash cloths, towels, Diapers for newborns on up (different brands so they can chose on price, I did this with other items too), bibs and a couple of other toys. I also added some bottles and a basket to put in the dishwasher to clean them with (I plan on breast feeding and pumping), and a cover for myself for breastfeeding.
.... What else should I add??
I really loved the Carters gowns for my kids. They have an elastic bottom that makes diaper changes in the middle of the night so much faster and easier. You're done faster and the baby goes back to sleep more easily. http://www.amazon.com/Carters-Stripe-Animal-Print-Months/dp/B003V5F1J6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1306699466&sr=8-1

Another thing I loved were wearable blankets, which are totally safe. Halo makes great ones for summer that are sleveless and I used ones with sleeves during the winter. They were similar to this: http://www.amazon.com/Just-One-Year-SleepbagsPoka-Dot/dp/B003H3IU9K/ref=sr_1_13?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1306699788&sr=1-13

One more thing that was an absolute lifesaver with my second baby was a white noise machine. Good ones are pricey though and you don't know if you'll need one, so you might want to hold off until the baby is born. My first was fine, but my second was such a light sleeper! I had this one: http://www.amazon.com/Marpac-SleepMate-980A-Electro-Mechanical-Conditioner/dp/B000KUHFGM/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1306700647&sr=8-5
I so love shopping for babies. :)
