Wow, I'm surprised to see so many things that are completely unnessesary on here! Like wipe warmers! lol

Here's what you'll need:
And a sling.

Maybe a swing too if you think you'll use it.

Also an herbal sitz bath for after the birth really really helps with pain and swelling. (I believe sells some, otherwise your local herbal shop should).

I think anything to keep baby safe and free of unnecessary illnesses are must have items for your newborn. I'm looking into Nursery/feeding sanitizers (look at Walmart or Target) and a baby health and emergency kit is a good idea to invest in. If you have cats (as we do!!) a crib tent is a good idea and will keep your mind at peace over a kitty accidently getting into the nursery. If you have carpets, invest in a really great vaccuum with some type of allergy filter on it, and you're gonna maybe want to look into baby sleep postioners to keep baby from rolling around in his/her sleep, I like the breathable ones, so in case baby moves his mouth over it, he can still breathe thru it and not suffocate.

I saw a few post saying about a baby wipes warmer... in my opinion, those things are worthless. We brought one for my son when he was under a year old, and we went to use it... and to our surprise, it didn't deliever the expectations. The wipes stayed warm for about 5 seconds at the most, and the wipes on the bottom of the warmer dried out too quickly. So I really wouldn't recommend it. I thought it was such a waste of money.
