Our baby boy will be here in just a month!  We are so excited to have him join our family.  To be honest as of 2 weeks ago we didn’t have 1 item for the baby.  With us getting settled in at our new place, we started shopping for our newborn baby essentials quickly.  In these last 2 weeks we have gotten basically everything for the baby’s essentials and nursery.

I know it can be difficult thinking of everything you have to buy for the baby.  Especially if this is your first time around.  With this being our 4th baby I have learned what items I use and what items just collect dust.  To make it help for all those mamas that are expecting I wanted to share my newborn essentials. This list are exact items that I will be using.

Please keep in mind I am sure there are more items that other fellow moms are on their list, but I created  listed specifically on what I love and used.  It’s important to know this list is a starting point, but to be honest once you have the baby you will learn what items you like/dislike.

There are some brands I swear by and some that I prefer not to use.  We love Tommee Tippee bottles, Carter’s baby clothing, Nuna, Lansinoh breastfeeding products for mama. I could keep going.

I have also made a downloaded Newborn checklist to help you remember everything as you are prepping for your upcoming baby. Again, this is just a starting point, as you start to gather products you will learn what works best for you and your baby.
