I’m having my first baby! Now what do I need?
I’ve been looking through baby books to get a basic idea of some of the supplies I will need. I’m all about getting things done with the absolute minimum (not because I’m cheap or don’t have the money, but because I believe that’s the way mother nature intended it), so I’ve narrowed it down to this list:
2 fitted sheets
ample newborn diapers
ample formula if I decide to formula feed
bottles (how many do you think?)
3 receiving blankets
a few onesies, maybe some hats and socks
Obviously as the baby gets older, I can buy things to fill the needs as they arise, but this list is strictly what I believe I will need immediately upon coming home. Am I missing anything that you thought was important for your newborn? Is there anything on the list I can do without? I am so new to all of this, and though I have been reading the books and trying to prepare, I know I won’t think of everything, so your help is really appreciated!
Thanks everyone’s answers are really helpful!
AWESOMENESS IS ONLY ME: My baby is planned XD
