OT but we brought our baby home in hospital kimono undershirt. One for his top and another (his legs in the sleeves) made ‘pants’ Which is my way of staying that babes need a safe place to sleep and a safe way to travel hike from the hospital, they need diapers and little more. All the ‘must haves’ are marketing

My June babies came home in undershirts! It’s ~100 degrees then where I live

I just had a baby. Bring a onesie, stretchie, hat, car seat, car seat blanket. I brought two onesies and stretchies just in case. I also brought booties but didn’t use them. That’s really all you need to actually bring them home from the hospital. You’ll need to of course have all the rest of the basics at home (diapers, wipes, etc). Can give you a list of that too Smile

Re the hospital:
My hospital doesn’t provide wipes so consider bringing those
And
Pacifiers if you want to use them (“baby friendly” hospitals don’t provide

I just had a baby. Here's what I have: stretchies, onesies, pants, shirts, jackets, hats, mittens so don't scratch, socks, sleeping sacks/swaddles, blankets, burp clothes, bibs, diapers, wipes, diaper ointment, infant tylenol, bacitracin, baby bathtub, baby towels/washcloths, bottles, nipples, breastpump, lanolin, nursing pads, nursing bra, formula, distilled water, bottle brush, baby monitor, bassinet, sheets, carseat, bundleme, snap n go, moby wrap. You might also want: baby swing, pacifiers, bouncer, changing table, boppy lounger and.or nursing pillow.

That's all I remember for now.

Lawngreen, you have the superdeluxe layette, far more than any newborn needs. Pants and shirts, for example--no newborn needs this. He's not going to be testifying before Congress any time soon; stretchies will do just fine and be more comfy for him and convenient for mom.

Distilled water--totally unnecessary. Good for your steam iron, though,if you live in a hard-water area. OTOH, how much ironing are you doing if you have a newborn?
Baby towel and washcloths--a luxury. Ordinary towels and washcloths will do just fine. The hood is cute but not a necessity, and any thin washcloth will serve.
Baby monitor--a luxury for lazy parents though it does allow you to check on the kid without opening his door. Useful if the door creaks badly, though oiling the hinges is cheaper.

Just want to add to the lists above, I am finding a diaper caddy super convenient to have. I keep it upstairs by my bed at night and bring down during the daytime with everything I need for diaper changing and more. I store diapers, wipes, changing pad, change of clothes, pacifiers, prepared bottles and pre measured formula, disposable diaper bags, hand sanitizer. I also love having a wipes warmer. And if you’re having a boy you’ll need gauze pads and bacitracin for after the bris. Otherwise I think those lists were pretty comprehensive, but I keep ordering more things on amazing by the day. Good luck and bshaa tova!

It's funny you should say that, because I actually managed to accumulate most of it by getting other people's hand-me-downs/for free. I guess I got really lucky.

Regarding the monitor, I never had for my other kids, but I happen to now have an extremely wild toddler and for fear of my baby's safety, I have to keep her away from him in a closed bedroom anytime I am not holding her and hence the need to be able to monitor her from afar.

I totally forgot about baby wash. Also a diaper bag for going out.

Some small things that are easy to forget if you don't have around:
Qtips (for the stump)
Bacitracin and gauze (if it's a boy)
Changing pad
Dye free detergent (lots of babies are sensitive in the beginning)
