The first 6 months? Just the basics-sleepers, some outfits, socks, blankets, diapers, wipes, suckies, some toys, carseat (of course), crib/sleeping area for baby, some type of diaper bag, maybe a bath of some sort, and a bouncer or swing of some sort to keep baby in at certain times of day. A must have for me personally is my Moby wrap.

apart from clothes/toiletries etc they don´t really need that much.

Mine slept in the basinetter part of the stroller till 4 months were breastfed and we CD.

I loved my sling and DD2 used the bouncy/swing a lot so DD1 could get some time with mummy.

Some lightweight blankets are always useful, sometimes a thick blanket is just too much.

I never used a boppy or a pillow, but I know loads of people find them essential.

Also nipple cream, best if its one you just apply after feeding and don´t have to wash off. Lots of people recommended just rubbing a bit of breastmilk on them after each feed, but with DD1 I had horribly cracked nipples. (Not fun ) and with DD2 the midwife said to start using the vream at about 37 weeks to soften up the nipples. Its so much easier to let them work out how to latch properly if it doesn´t feel like they´ve got razor wire on their lips!!

A wrap or carrier is a must! And gas drops for sure. We BF and CD as well, I need some more diapers since DS doesn't appear to be in a hurry to potty train. A nose sucker (no clue what the real name is), diaper cream(we use California baby Calendulla, doubles as lotion), bouncy seat, wash cloths, some burp cloths, car seat, paknplay, blankets, a few outfits and sleepers.

I actually have all that I need other than some sort of sling or seat for bathing baby. I saved everything from last time. And really... I didn't need much.
