So a family friend is going to be the babysitter for MJ. Instead of bringing things back and forth I have a few doubles for her house. Such as; a playpen (already purchased), a diaper bag (only because mine is a super cute purse type and I don’t want to ruin it but FI’s diaper bag is a backpack so might just let her use that one since I have to bring it home everyday to refill it), a bathtub (just in case he gets dirty I don’t want her to try and bathe him in her own tub or sink)
Is there anything else that I should get doubles of?

The only things my daycare provider requested was a changing pad and extra clothes. I sent extra paci, extra blankets, extra bibs, extra burb cloths, extra socks along with the the other things. She keeps a bin in her home for each child so I stocked it and refill it every monday. We didn’t provide any extra toys or pack n pays or anything…

I provided everything listed by sn2bmrsmntgmry, and I also sent doubles of a few of her favorite toys and loveys. I just gave her a whole box of diapers/wipes, so I don’t have to bring those daily. I pack a lunch bag/tote with bottles, a bib and a burp cloth, and that’s all that gets sent daily.

I think it might turn into a giant PITA to pass a diaper bag back and forth every day, on top of carrying the baby back and forth. I would buy a basic one and let the babysitter manage restocking it with the supplies you bring in bulk to her place. I got a plain back Carter’s diaper bag for $10 at Ross.
