Essential items for baby arriving

I've had a very shy Mum pm me on our Facebook page asking if I could put up a few posts for her.\r\n\r\nShe is a young, first time Mum and in her words "feels totally clueless as to what she needs exactly for baby". \r\n\r\nSo folks, I'm asking you to please put forward your list of essential items that is required for baby. What should she definitely buy/borrow and what should she avoid?

Everyone will swear by different things of course, but here's my list! Newborn outfits / babygros - only a few, they grow so quickly, but 0-3 will be too big intially - get the ones with built in scratch mitts. vests baby hat bibs - soft ones Muslins - I wasn't convinced but you can use them for EVERYTHING Nappies Wipes / Cotton Wool Baby bath / bath insert Steriliser Dummies if using Moses basket / crib for sleeping Blankets / grobags Changing table (to save your back!) Pram / Sling Bouncer That will get you through the first bit! The bouncer gave me free hands during the day and lets them look around and watch whilst you get on with 'stuff', they cant see much from a moses basket. If the weather is good a thermometer for the bedroom or a small desktop fan is useful, and as they get bigger of course things change too. [u]Tips[/u] Sockons - stops them losing their little socks Highchair - the basic ikea one can be scrubbed so clean, we ditched our £100 one for it! When big enough - a jumperoo, hours of fun :) If they are difficult to settle, a swing works wonders..... Sophie the giraffe for teething - make sure you clean it regularly- or the gummy mitt I'm sure someone will come along and point out something I've forgotten!
