There is only one reason I didn't have a full panic attack in BuyBuyBaby the day I started June's baby registry: a good (very kind and patient) friend who had recently had a baby came with me and told me exactly what I would actually need for my baby. Now I can be that friend for you.
These are not all items that I registered for, or a review of every baby item in every brand – these are all items I actually used for June ...a lot.
June slept in a bassinet in our room for the first few months before sleeping in the crib in her room, but I still used our glider in her room every single day since she came home!
I remember stressing over how many diapers to buy. My recommendation – buy a small box of newborn diapers in a couple different brands so you can try them out. Once you know which kind you like best, sign up for Amazon mom and get those babes on subscription!
- Pampers Swaddlers Diapers
- Huggies Wipes
- Butt Cream
- Changing table pad
- Changing table pad cover
- Wipe warmer
- Ubbi Diaper Pail
- Ubbi Diaper Pail Bags
The clothes listed here are minimal because June really only wore onesies for the first few months of her life. (Probably important to note - we were in Florida and it was summer.)
When you are brave enough to venture outside of your house, having a travel system (car seat + stroller) that is easy to open/close/move around really makes all the difference.
Feel free to contact me or comment on this post if you have any questions – or call out anything missing from this list! I'd love for it to be a really thorough resource for new mamas-to-be.
Follow up post sharing the things we used after the newborn phase coming soon!
