Word of advice...don't open any newborn diapers until after you have the baby. I wasted a whole box because my son was born into 1s and 0-3 month clothes. Nothing newborn fit him.



That being said...you don't really need the aspirator...the hospital lets you take theirs home & they work great. And if you plan to breastfeed you may not need more bottles...although more bottles was the first thing I thought when I read the list lol.

I always switch right when he hits the lowest weight for the next size so I can finish the previous box! Except going in to 4s, which is where he could be now and I'm just in denial lol. He's got a ways before he completely outgrows 3s and you get more with those so I'm pushing a bit longer
