Newborn Items List

Here is a list of Newborn Baby Items that you will need before you have your baby (or immediately after). Keep in mind some of these items may not be as important to you, and you will discover what works for you as you go, but some items might be something you haven’t thought of needing. If anything double check your registry (or list) and check it twice! Or more, whatever fits your fancy!

Whatever you can get done before baby arrives the better. I completed two huge scrapbooks for Jett {before} because I was bound and determined (and I knew I wouldn’t have time once he arrived). He is days away from 6 Months and I am now working on getting my photo prints done, photo books, and video collages of his moments from being born to 6 Months. I am loving that I took care of the Scrapbook and Pregnancy photos before now. I will do the same thing when he turns a year old. Ain’t no mama got time for all that!

You can check out the video version to this same list on my channel:

– Will be posted here as soon as the video is.

It has a little more details of the items and why I recommend them.

Newborn Baby Items List:

Please note it’s a good idea to have a few Newborn outfits but have the same amount of 0-3 Month clothing on hand (if not more) in case your baby grows out of the Newborn size quickly.
  • Sleeping Arrangment (Crib, Bassinet, Co-Sleeper, Dock-A-Tot, etc.)
  • Sleeping Arrangement Sheets or Cover
  • Sleeping Arrangement Sheets or Cover Extras (at least two sets)
  • Newborn Shirts (not onesies) It airs out the Umbilical Cord + Easy Diaper Changes
  • Newborn Sleepers
  • Swaddles (Pre-made ones that zip or velcro will be your friends)
  • Mittens
  • Socks
  • Hats
  • (Optional) Bows
  • Tub (or Bath-Time device)
  • Bath Towels (hooded are best, 8+ or more)
  • Bath Cloths (not too many 10 would be about right – unless you don’t wash clothes often – then close to 20😂)
