hmm try googling, I'm holding a baby right now but can't seem to think lol......too tired
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).
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.
Pack n play or bassinet
Diapers of some sort
Shampoo/ washcloth/ towels
A baby hair brush- use while shampooing to prevent cradle cap
Bottles if you need them

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

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