Quoting ASHLEy;):" Everyone keeps telling me that I need TONS of diapers."
yes you do! Maybe a pack or 2 of newborn and allot of size 1's Sams Club/ Costco is great if your buying disposable as well as wipes you go through those faster than you would hope for because they can be quick to use when cleaning a spit up if your on the go.
Cosleeping for sure! Dr. Sears has posted about research showing that sleeping with your baby in a sober and safe state and safe bed helps regulate and match their breathing to yours, reduce SIDS, and you don't have to really wake up or do much to feed.

is that one of the drs that say you shouldnt tell a child no and you shouldnt spank or use time out?
Spanking is detrimental to development and health. It only means a person is too inept in finding a better way to teach their children then hurting them. It teaches that hurting someone is acceptable, and that you only have power and should be respected because of fear, rather than real respect. Saying no is fine, just give an explanation so they know WHY you're saying no, and they can learn.

ok just curious i know some people say you shouldnt tell a child no
My daughter had a Womb bear Oh my goodness that thing was amazing! It made the same sounds that the baby hears inside your tummy. That's the only way she could sleep.
Quoting kate2412:" oh my goodness I have never heard of a baby wipes warmer !! lol"
Just make sure you look at the reviews if you get one. I think they are unnecessary but many people really like them since they help late night diaper changes more comfortable. Many have been recalled for fire dangers and burns so just check them out if you must have one

I found one of these at Goodwill and was super excited about the price- $40.00!! It was practically brand new. I am so glad I came across this great deal b/c I am also very nervous about the whole SIDs and such.
One thing not mentioned, as my sister told me. SLEEP NOW!.lol..
Well, I started to buy onesies and as much unisex clothes I can find since I'm due in january. No one ever thinks about the time they are due in terms of clothing. I'm really nervous and scared to death. I wake up, panicking. I'm like "oh my gosh, I'm someone's mother". My child's father says: go back to sleep, u are gonna be waking up like that for years get used to it. Lol...
Diapers and clothes. Stock up. Especially. On the onesies.
Quoting MrzSweet♥:" a car bottle warmer...its a life saver"

I'd say the necessities of course :) but also: I got this vibrating, rocking swing that my sissy said was a life saver. Bottle warmers definitely. Nooks. Breast pads (definitely not a good idea to have a soaked shirt when walking around during the day) LOTS OF DIAPERS AND WIPES!!
