It’s hard to imagine that such a tiny little person could need so many things! Even if this is your first baby, you don’t have to buy everything new. Newborn babies grow pretty quickly, so you might want to borrow gently used things from a friend or family member.

Download your new baby essentials checklist and print a copy to keep track of what you have and what you need.

This checklist for a new baby covers the essentials, including:

  • Nursery
  • Feeding
