I need a checklist of just essentials I’m going to need for my newborn comming soon. Honestly, I’ve been lagging on buying baby stuff, mostly because I don’t want a lot of clothes laying around and wish to wait ’til the baby is born to buy specific gender clothes. This is my second baby in two years, so I have an idea of what is most needed for newborns, but I’d like some help on things I might have forgotten.
So far I have
Two small boxes of Huggies Newborn diapers
3pk Vent Aire Bottles
2pk A-Vent Bottles
New bobby pillow
1 3pk of newborn shirts with the mitten cuff
2 5pks of 5-8lbs onsies
2 5pks of 8-10lbs(I think) onsies
New baby bath and foam pad
2 baby hooded towels
4 baby washcloths
Basic baby safety kit(nose sucker/thermometer/clippers/etc)
2 new crib sheets
1 4pk of recieving blankets
New travel size swing
Bottles rack(orginally my son’s)
What I know I need
Baby bath soap
Baby washing soap
Latex nipples for bottles
Formula(if I don’t breastfeed)
More recieving blankets/towels/newborn shirts
Basically it, I plan on buying clothes and toys as the baby grows because I know they don’t need much as newborns but the basics.
Is there anything else I need to buy before the baby comes? I know I need to stock up on wipes and diapers and I will, these are the things I basically have right now and will get more later.
Oh yes, I know I forgot SOCKS!! How many packs do I need to buy??
Also, I wasn’t planning on having another baby for years, so I ended up giving away most of my son’s old bouncers/walker and stuff to charity before I found out I was expecting ^.^ good thing I kept the strollar and carseat :)
