You probably have a million things on your to-do list.
And your due date keeps coming closer and closer.
“How many bassinets do I need? Where can I find diapers? How do I put a crib together?”
You can do this. I have put together a list of the absolute necessities you need for a newborn.
You don’t have to do it all in one day. Add these baby products to your list and take it day by day.
All of these products can be found on Amazon. Don’t forget to create an Amazon Baby Registry. You get a discount for products placed on the registry and have 90 days to return any goods. Plus, you can add products from any site, not just Amazon.

A swaddle is very comforting for a newborn as it mimics the pressure of the womb.
You’ll want to have a couple in case one is in the wash and the other gets spit on.
A baby monitor gives you piece of mind while your newborn sleeps.
You don’t want to cut corners with this item, you want a high-quality monitor that won’t let you down.
A good quality diaper cream can help your baby tremendously. I’m a big fan of Burt’s Bees, but there are plenty of options out there.
One tube is sure to last you months as a little goes a long way.
