moby wrap… This is how I can eat during the day. It also makes walks and outings so much easier.
backpack type diaper bag…. Might not be super stylish, but it’s darn convenient
pump… i started pumping super early on because I have an over supply, and I was so glad I had the pump and bottles and such on hand
recieving blankets… Tons! So much spit. haha
hooded towels and baby tub.
swing… This waa a lifesaver for us in the beginning, but we waited until after she was born to buy it, once we found she loved the swinging motion. You could try a mini swing, too. Cheaper and space-saver.
changing pad… We do all changes in her room, on the pad, even though she sleeps in our room.
bassinet… We love having her close by.
white noise app… I just use an old smart phone for this.
Boppy… It’s great, but in a pinch, a normal pillow is just fine
Nice to have:
diaper genie… We like and use it.
bottle warmer… Breast milk is naturally warm, so LO won’t take cold bottles.
Play mat… We have one with lights and sounds, but I mostly just throw a blanket down or on the couch and we have tummy time.
Bouncg seat… She doesn’t really love it, but it works sometimes.
Don’t bother with:
nice clothes… As a winter newborn, she’s lived in jammies. they’re cute, but I only buy on sale.
Toys… There’s nothing she needs to play with as a newborn.
I’ll add that we have a fancy-shmancy Uppababy stroller…. And it was so worth the money. This puppy steers and turns so smoothly, it’s amazing.
I’m sure I’ve forgotten some stuff. Oh, DD is 8 weeks old.
