Unless they have DRASTICALY changed it, the Bundle Me is a big no-no for car safety. As are most of the car mirrors and toys (they can come flying off in an accident and hit the baby with a LOT of force). Just a little FYI

For us we only really needed the sling, diapers, clothes, and carseat. All of the others are just extra's.

Re: Items to buy to prepare for a new baby?

Ditto on the BundleMe not being safe in the carseat. They're great for a stroller, but it's not safe to put things like that on the carseat, unless they come with the seat or are made by the seat manufacturer & approved for use with the seat. A better option for bundling up in the carseat is a "shower-cap" style cover, that only goes over the seat & won't interfere with the harnesses or get under the baby. Something like this is good: http://tinyurl.com/v5uzs

Sounds like you have lots of good suggestions, though! Congrats on becoming an aunt!!
