ACTUAL ESSENTIALS!

I remember sitting in the ob/gyn’s office and browsing the baby magazines which all have a new baby checklist and i would feel TOTALLY NOT ready because i just didn’t invest in all the things they said I needed… to be honest, those lists can make you feel really inadequate but rest assured, for the first 6 months of your baby’s life- they really do not need much!

You will notice that I omitted things like Tylenol Infant Drops and Diaper Rash ointments only because with my first child,  I purchased them but thankfully never needed them and ended up throwing away unopened bottles of items that were bought on a “just in case” basis…so now I would much rather purchase additional things as needed.

So here are the ACTUAL essentials you need to bring your baby home:

Baby Gear
Carseat

Feeding
Formula
Breast Pump (only if you plan on expressing breast milk)

Diapering
Diapers
Wipes
Used grocery bags to dispose of pampers

Health and Safety
Nose Frida
Thermometer
Nail Clipper

Bath
Bath Tub
Baby Wash
Baby Lotion
Towel

Clothes and Accessories
Onesies
Hats
Socks
Blanket

Nursery and Decor
Crib (with mattress)
Crib Sheets

For MOM
Diaper Bag
Pampering Items such as this Olay Duo– this is flexible, dual-sided body cleanser that exfoliates, cleanses, and smooths skin. The best part is: its one product which makes it easy to have great skin even when taking 5 minute showers!
