Muslin Swaddle Blankets: I absolutely love my swaddle blankets! They can double as nursing covers, too! 

Dock-a-tot: I have several mom friends who say that this is a must-have baby item. 

Bassinet: A bassinet to go beside your bed will help keep baby within arms reach in the early weeks. 

Crib: A crib is a given! Even though your baby may not sleep in the crib right away, you will need one when baby gets older.

Crib Mattress: Can’t have a crib without a crib mattress!

Blankets: You’ll especially need these in the cold winter months. The Hudson Baby Blankets (pictured below) are the softest blankets! I love them! I ordered one for my newest addition, and I will be ordering a few more!

Crib/Bassinet Sheets: You will want at least  3 or 4 of each.


Boba Wrap Carrier: I honestly don’t know what I would’ve done without my Boba carrier! It was such a lifesaver!!

Structured Carrier: As baby gets older, a structured carrier becomes a little easier to carry them in.

Car seat/ Stroller Combo: Some hospitals give away free car seats to new moms. But, they are very basic seats. Having a carseat with a base makes getting the baby in and out of the car much easier!

Boppy Pillow (with cover): I used my boppy pillow forever!! This is one is a must-have for breastfeeding moms.

Diaper Caddy : Having a diaper caddy will make diaper changes super easy. You can carry it throughout the house, or keep it in your room for late night changes and feedings.

Breast Pump: (For breastfeeding moms.)

Nursing Pads: Choose between disposables or washable ones. Lansinoh is my favorite!

Bottles: Dr. Brown’s bottles were always my favorite bottles!

Bottle Brush: If you are bottle-feeding you will definitely want to have one of these!

Bottle Drying Rack:

Formula: It’s a good idea to have some formula on hand when baby arrives. However, I wouldn’t stock up on too much of one kind. Some babies are sensitive to certain kinds of formula.

Bibs: You’ll probably need 5-10 bibs to start with.


Diaper Bag: Choose a diaper bag that is practical and roomy so you can fit all the essentials inside!


Diapers: Cloth or disposable.

Wipes: I recommend organic or sensitive wipes for newborns.

Pacifiers: Get a couple different brands. Sometimes babies will be a little picky when it comes to pacifiers. Mine would only take Nuk pacis for the longest time! 


Bath: A baby bath with a newborn sling is great to have.

Towels: You will want to have 7 or so hood towels for your baby.

Washcloths: I would suggest getting a big package of washcloths.

Baby wash: My favorite is Baby Magic!

Shampoo Rinse Cup: I really love having one of these for my babies and toddlers!


Onesies :6-8 per size.

Sleepers :7 per size.

Gowns:I used these every night. So , I would recommend having at least 7.

Socks/Shoes: 6-7 pairs of socks, and however many shoes you feel you need. I never really put my babies in shoes that often so I only bought 1 or 2 pair.

Outfit: About 6 outfits per size.

Hats:3 or 4 hats.

Did I miss anything??
