BTW: You won't use half that crap.
Also, don't get a pump right away until your supply is set and you make sure breastfeeding is going to work out. The majority of places will not take back a used breast pump.
You need very, very little necessities. lol
Most places just want you to spend as much of your money as humanly possible :roll: I'd at least have a digital thermometer though, humidifier, bulb syringe, baby nail clippers...

I wasn't planning on buying a pump right away but I totally forgot you can't return an opened one....... so I'll definitely wait! Thank you for linking me :)

please don't lol, really. I promise you, you do not need much at all. Like that other poster said, I didn't even use like half the shit I bought w/ my first.

Quoting shelbylynn [32 WEEKS!]:" Lol I'm driving myself crazy.... hopefully I calm down after my shower tomorrow when her room is filled lol"
Oh yeah, you should get a lot from your shower!
I wish I would of had one!
They can give you a free hand held one. You don't need a real one unless going to work. You practically need nothing for a newborn! Bed, carseat, a few onesies, bath soap, diapers, wipes. The rest of the stuff is totally not needed. You can use regular towels and washcloths for baths and burping. I used kitchen towels. You don't need baby tub. My kids hated the swing. I co slept for a while, you might not even need a crib until later. I don't use a diaper bag. Get a big purse. Put a diaper and some wipes in it. Leave a change of clothes in the car. Stuff is rediculously expensive and I can say I didn't use most of it! Changing table is a waste. I change my kid on the floor or ottoman. I'm too tired to walk to the kids room to change 200 diapers a day.
Diaper genie is a waste. Get some exercise and walk to the dumpster. It wot kill you. The refills are like $6.
