NEEDS:
1) Lots of wipes
2) diapers
3) onesies/sleepers
4) bottles and nipples if formula feeding
5) carseat
6) basinett
7) miracle blanket (its basically swaddling, but they love it)!! Go online to read about it more.

Good to have:

A bouncer would be good to have (my mom got my LO one used to being bounced to sleep her, so now I have to carry her and bounce on the bed gently for her to calm down).

A boppy pillow is great if you are BFding and even formula feed (helps me at night).

1)Swaddle Me - they act like they don't want to be swaddled but sleep so much better when they are..I wish I had known how much they like it when I first brought my baby home.
2)car seat/stroller
3)receiving blankets
4)cloth diapers for EVERYTHING...great for cleaning up baby spillage
5)diapers
6)wipes
7)bedding
8)crib
9)changing table/changing pad and covers/waterproof boppies to go over changing pad cover
10)bouncer/play gym/boppie pillow/bumbo

7. Diapers/wipes
8. baby tub/ wash

The things that we used were gowns, receiving blankets, caps, mittens (she scratched herself all the time), a sleep positioner, burp rags. Does it only have to be 10?

Here's my favorite stuff. Maybe not the 10 most needed, but good stuff that's not necessarily a "given".

I completely agree with the suggestion and the list of items to take care for a new baby are listed to be taken care by a New mother.So better take care of it.
