TheGridMonster : yea – so many people want to get the cutesy stuff but there are things you NEED. And frankly if they are hoping that some cutesy thing will be remembered forever they are wrong. I couldn’t tell you which toy/book/stuffed animal came from who. But I do know my SIL mailed me nursing bras and my best friend brought over bags of fresh fruit when I got home from the hospital. Those ladies are the best and they know what a momma NEEDS. Because let’s get real…the first few months are all about boobs and poop.

I have a 4 month girl. My MUST haves would be:
lillebaby complete airflow carrier
rock n play
cloth diapers (to her as burp clothes and to dry butts… we are a disposable for actual diapers type of family)
Dr. Brown Option bottles
Activity mat (the fischer price one with the piano keys is the best!)
A swing was also a lifesaver for a month or so
drying rack (we like the Dr. Brown one- the popular boon grass one can collect water and mold if you aren’t super careful)

rock n play for the first few months, diaper caddy for moving around the house(i have diapers, wipes, meds, nail clippers, etc in mine), nose freda(i was skeptical at first but it was a LIFE SAVER), TONS of bibs that have that plastic in the middle for when they start teething/drooling. i go through about three or four bibs a day(cloth bibs are just a joke lol), breathable mesh bumper because my baby was getting his arms stuck in the spaces in the crib, and a really good baby monitor. these are all things i don’t think i could live without lol!
