help me make a list please!

of things i will need for baby. aside from the obvious clothes lol. my mind is going nutz trying to remember everything. and i know we don't have that much time before baby gets here. there are a couple of very large consignment sales going on mid july (one the day after i get my gender ultrasound yay!) and i'm hoping to get most of my stuff at the sales (since i'm a first time mommy i have early shopping passes to them another yay!). but i don't want to be kicking myself if i forget something because they won't have the sales again until spring. the only bigger ticket item i want to buy new is the carseat.

this is my list so far:
crib
dresser
changing table
carseat
a sling or baby carrier of some sort
boppy pillow (loved the one we had for my god daughter)
a bassinet for our bedroom
baby swing
of course diapers but i won't find them at the sales

i know i'm leaving stuff out

forgot to mention i already have a bumbo and play mat (garage sale $10 for both of em) and a pack n play we bought and use for my god daughter had a lot of other stuff we bought for her she outgrew, including a new carseat and stroller. but since i wasn't getting preg and my little brother was having a girl and it was all pink lol we sent it all to him

Re: help me make a list please!

I think the most imoportant thing for me when I had DD was the "My Breast Friend". Sounds corny but I loved the thing! It's like a Boppy but it clips closed and lays flatter so the baby doesn't roll in towards your body.

A bouncy/vibrating seat. DD loved hers. And if you travel/visit a lot, a travel swing is nice to have too.

Each baby likes different things. My DD loved her swing and spent a lot of time in it, my DS was not a fan. Was in it a handful of times. He preferred the vibrating chair

Well, to go along with your list I'd make sure to get:
crib sheets
boppy cover - extra one so you can wash
bassinet sheets
contour pad for changing table
cover for changing pad

When I get back on my desktop tomorrow I'll post my master list of baby stuff that I give to new moms. It's good for thinking about what you might want and making sure you don't miss out on anything. (Half of it is not going to be stuff you find at resale but stuff you'll need/want.)
