We have went over the big stuff everyone still has to pick up, but what about the little stuff that is easy to forget?

What have you purchased already?

What is still on your list?

I thought this might also help some of the FTM's and jog some of the BTDT mommy's memories.

Ha ha ha, I just had a friend give me nipple butter. She said that she wishes she had it when she was in the hospital. I'm grateful, because I would've totally overlooked that. Another friend told me yesterday not to get any little things yet because you get a ton of that at the shower.... ??? I'm kinda hoping that my shower guests remember things that I would've overlooked!

^Totally true. You tend to get a lot of baskets with stuff like baby shampoo/lotions/powder etc. or one filled with baby medicines/thermometers/etc.

I am waiting for after my shower for sure. After we see what we get then, I have either things added to my registry that I can use my fulfillment bonus to get, and I have a massive spreadsheet with EVERYTHING we will need (now and later), that I can use for a master checklist!

What have you purchased already? Not much yet, just the crib bedding.

What is still on your list? We're going to wait and see what we get after the showers. When I went to register the little stuff that had slipped my mind was:

*burp cloths
*diaper rash cream
*the dishwasher basket for all the little bottle parts
*the little bag dispenser thing for the diaper bag (for putting stinky diapers in when out and about- I have a weird thing about just tossing a poopy diaper in a public restroom bin- I try to spare the public the rotten smell!)

I'm waiting for the shower, but I have a running list of last minute things to get in Dec, which include:

XL pads (for me!), nipple cream, diapers, nursing bras and camis, etc. Hopefully everything else I will get at the shower, but if not, I have a list to add to!

Oh, I forgot! I did buy one thing....a pack each of LS and SS kimono style (side snap) teeshirts (not onesies). My brother/SIL said those are a MUST have when baby first comes home because they don't irritate the cord stump. I didn't want to chance those at a shower, and I found them on sale at Carters, so I just went ahead and got them.

I haven't bought anything yet. I've been given some things but I think I need to find a big check list of stuff needed for baby. As a FTM I'm a bit clueless. Anyone know where I might find such a checklist?

Thank you from those of us in retail!

True story: I was working in the children's department at Nordstrom when a new mother went into the dressing room to change her baby. (happened all the time even though we had spacious clean family restrooms) I was at the register with a trash bin underneath when she tries to HAND ME THE DIRTY DIAPER TO THROW IN MY BIN!

What is WRONG with people?!??

I don't need much of anything. Probably will just pick up new bottles and stock up on diapers.

UGH! My shower was this weekend which reminds me to make a thread about that...anyways. Having got a lot of stuff I am finding we still need quite a bit.

Nursing supplies, diaperbag, nursing bra/attire, diapers, changing table, infant car seat, infant medical kit/medicine. I am sure I am missing some things.

ETA: I just realized most of these are big ticket items...
I might just make my Christmas list all the small items still needed.

We don't have much...just yet. With the other children we pretty much had everything we needed (except the car seat when the last one was born 8 weeks early. lol) at this point in the pregnancy. I've just been so indecisive about everything.

some things that we tend to overlook...
-gas drops
-nursing bra
-nursing pads
-pads for post-partum
-underwear for post-partum (seriously!)
-a soft structured baby carrier like a Moby or Sleepy wrap (especially for those with older children this will be a life saver!)
-nipple cream


I think that's it...will add more as I think about it. I used to have a little list saved on my computer but I can't find it!
