List of Basic Needs for Newborn Babies

There are many things a baby will need in the first few months that you'll need to be prepared for when the baby arrives. However, that doesn't mean you have to run out and buy it all at once. It is best to wait until you are at least three months pregnant before buying baby items in case of any problems with the pregnancy. Also, don't forget that someone will most likely throw you a baby shower once you have completed a baby registry. Here is a list of basic needs for the newborn baby. Once you have already had a baby shower and know what you have and know what else you need you will then only have to buy what you really need, which will save you money.

Basic needs for newborn baby:

  • 2 to 4 packages of newborn disposable or cloth diapers, diaper bag, diaper cream/ointment, baby powder. Cloth diapers, a diaper pail and safety pins can save you a lot of money in the long run and are better for the environment.
