Between the baby showers and all the endless recommendations from friends (“you HAVE to get this” or that) — how do you know what you really need for baby’s arrival?
Actually, you don’t need much.
A few onesies (long and short-sleeved), a couple of newborn baby hats, pajamas or outfits with footies, your choice of diapers and some swaddling blankets.
As a bonus: a baby carrier like a Boba Baby Wrap or Carrier (sold at Blooma!) makes life easier for you and oh-so-snuggly for both you and baby.
That’s pretty much it. Are there other essentials you can think of? Do share.
We also adore this New Baby Checklist from LüSa Organics. It details all the must-have items in greater detail, plus lists the extras that are nice to have, too. So if you’re hoping to pare down and not go too bonkers with stuff, definitely check out the LüSa Organics list. Then let us know what you think!
