I'm trying to pull together a list of things we're going to need for the baby (because I'm a little bit OCD and want to know it is under control ).. I've been thinking: To get about: Travel system (or pram & car seat) Moby wrap (not a necessity, but I want one!) Personal Care: Bath support (or baby bath) Towels (2 or 3?) Baby cloth/sponges Changing mat Nappies (how many nappies would you need for the 1st month?) Wipes or cotton wool pads EDIT: Just cotton wool pads with water for 1st month Nappy bags Bathing stuff (do you actually need nappy cream if the baby doesn't have nappy rash? EDIT: Big tube of bepanthen just in case! (Do you really need baby lotion? How about different baby shampoo and baby bath?!) EDIT: nope, just warm water 1st month Oilve oil (for dry skin/baby massage) Feeding Burp cloths/muslins (EDIT: 24) Nipple Cream Breastpads (for leaks) (x50) EDIT: Think Kotex Towels without wings (far more comfortable than maternity pads I'm reliably informed! ) EDIT: Steralizer - get it in advance because you might be using dummies/pacifiers (I really don't want to use them, but now I know other people are looking at the list too! ) (I don't know if I need it in advance of the baby or not but I want an electric breastpump, and so will need bottles, somthing to steralize with, teats... IDK what else?) Clothes Sleepsuits (12) Vests (12) Scratch mittens (6) Bibs (12) Hats (4) EDIT: Sleepsuits with built in mittens (thanks MrsTy) EDIT: Snowsuit EDIT: Jacket (x2) EDIT: Warm hat (x2) (baby's due in April hence the warm clothes, thanks BabyHaines) Sleeping Cot/Cotbed/Moses Basket & mattress EDIT: sleeping bag (EDIT: x3) Fitted sheets (4) Top sheets (4) Cellular blanket (4) (just for my own peace of mind) Angelcare monitor What do you think I've missed? Is there anything on my list completely unnecessary?
