A good baby carrier( like an ergo, moby, mei tai, ktan, bobba) not a crappy jeep or baby bjor. a swing and bouncy seat. If. You plan on nursing 2 -3 nursing tops. 2-3 nursing bras. Are you a working mom?

I always get a changing table and then realize i never use it. The swings are great to have to be honest and you can always find them on sale. My needs have always been, a bed, sheets and blankets, bottles and binkies, a baby tub and bath things, a swing and a pack and play. Those are just my needs along with diapers and clothes.

I got mine at babiesrus it was 117 i wouldn't have bought it bc i can't afford to spend that on things but my mother bought it for me. Look on craigslist or at thrift stores

a swing and a bouncy seat(vibrating chair). I would put my boys in the bouncy seat while I showered. That way they were occupied and safe while I was able to get clean lol. The swing was a lifesaver with my first but my second never took to one so its best to find one used on craigslist or bookoo. I actually bought a swing off of bookoo for 60 dollars...it was really nice and clean. It plugs in too!
