My baby needs clothes, car seat, boobs, cloth diapers, and a good wrap :)

They don't need much at all! We will have her in our bed, I will be breastfeeding exclusively and I cloth diaper lol

Clothes, diapers & wipes, bottles if you plan on formula feeding/ nursing pads and Lansinoh (maybe a breast pump of some type) if you are bfing, a car seat...

Babies don't really need too much initially, but thebump.com has a good list of things you might want to consider getting (although several of the items seem kind of unnecessary).

Clothes, diapers, wipes, blankies, warm hats and snow bundles if it's a winter baby, binkys and bottles if you plan on using them, socks, diaper cream, lotion, baby wash, towels, wash clothes, safety kits with fingernail clippers and what not, burp rags, baby tylonal....that's all I can think of at the. Moment. Hope it helps :)

Holy shit lol. I am writing this stuff down as it's been 10 years since I shopped for baby stuff (and she has been the only one til now) and I forgot how much we actually need.

This isn't a need but was very helpful a wrap for baby wearing, breast pads for leakage if you're breast feeding, stroller, sunscreen, lotions, vibrating seat/swing. We used the swing for some nap times like if DH and I wanted to actually sit at the table and eat dinner but I was slightly obsessed with DS so other than that I was always holding him. I also got a pump to store up extra breast milk so I had to get that, storage bags and bottles. We got DS a 'Lovie' it's like a security blanket, small and has a part of a stuffed animal on it. We kept it near him since birth and now at over 2 he still sleeps with it, I like that we picked what it would be and that it's not some giant blanket or hard to wash toy that he randomly got attached to. 




Carseat

Pack n play or bassinet 

Clothes

Diapers of some sort

Wipes

Shampoo/ washcloth/ towels

A baby hair brush- use while shampooing to prevent cradle cap

Blankets

Bottles if you need them

Formula or boobs 

Some sort of cloth to use for burping/wiping mouth after feeding 

Camera for lots of pics :) 

Bag to hold baby items if you go anywhere. I cleaned out my purse and used that. The diaper bag was too chunky

Oh I just made a whole chart of stuff, number of shopping trips, what I want to spend on each trip and total I plan on spending lol I would upload but am on my phone.

I'm personally stocking up on shampoos, lotions, and other bath accessories of that nature as well as a couple boxes of both newborn and size 1 diapers and wipes first.

2nd trip I have planned for basic onesies, socks and hand covers , blankets, swaddlers, things of that nature

3rd will be for accessories such as a carrier, carseat, stationary play area like swing and things like that

Final will be smaller stuff, diaper rash creams, infant Tylenol, breast milk storage bags, bra pads, and anything I've missed

Boobs. Blankets. PJ's/onesies/pants. A way to wear him or her (Moby wrap is cheap and easy to make). Diapers. Wipes. Triple Paste Cream for diaper rash. Baby wash. Attendence at a La Leche meeting. Carseat. That's it the first three months. 

Oh and nipple cream and washable breast pads.
