I have to say, I definitely didn't get a baby bath, pacifiers, lotion, or extra diapers from the hospital so I wouldn't count on that unless you know for sure your hospital will!

I think the NECESSITIES are:

Crib/pack n play/bassinet/cosleeper (SOMETHING for her to sleep in)
Carseat
Stroller
DEFINITELY a swing or bouncer! Something for you to put her in to get stuff done

Diaper time:
Diapers
Wipes
Some type of cream for rashes


Bath time/hygiene:
Baby shampoo/soap
I don't think you necessarily NEED a bath at first- back in the day our parents just layered towels in the kitchen sink and one parent held baby in there while the other washed lol
Nail clippers: I'd say this is a MUST! DS scratched his cheek at about 2 DAYS OLD and he still has the scar at almost 4! Cut those little nails asap!
Towels
Washcloths

Clothes:
Onesies, light weight pants, sleepers are probably all you need to start with and you could add the cutesy stuff later on.
Mittens and socks


Lightweight blankets, swaddle blankets/woombie/halo sleep sac/ etc

Feeding:
If breastfeeding, I'd stock up on nipple pads and creams
Maybe a pump? (plus bottles etc for pumping)

If formula, bottles and stock up on formula beforehand.

Diaper bag
