A Quick List Of Things Your Newborn Actually Needs

New Baby Checklist

Taking care of your newborn baby’s needs can be overwhelming if you don’t know what they actually need. It really doesn’t matter how many articles/ books you have read —the long lists can easily make your head spin.

So, we decided to simplify this for you now that you have a hell lot of things to do. Below is the list of the things that your newborn will actually need.


An infant only requires a few clothing items, particularly in the first 2 months. Below are the essential things:

  • 8-10 pairs of dresses
  • Socks or soft booties
  • Sleep sacks or swaddling blankets
  • Sunhat
  • a winter sweater/ coat for winter time
  • Bibs
  • Knit cap
  • Zip-up Sweatshirt
  • Baby hangers

Don’t buy too many things in the same size at first. Babies grow quicker than you think.

Bath Items/ Cleaning

It’s imperative to have all of the required bath/ cleaning items within your reach when giving your baby a bath or while cleaning your baby. Here are the most important items that you need:

It is a good idea to buy a baby care kit online

Diapering Needs

Whether you are planning to use disposable or cloth diapers, you’ll need plenty. Other things that you’ll need are:

  • 1-2 Packets of Diapers
  • Waterproof pads for changing table
  • Wipes or cotton cloths
  • Diaper rash cream
  • Dirty diaper container
  • Plastic wipes holder for the diaper bag
  • Small thermos to keep warm water for cleaning the baby

Feeding supplies

  • Burp Cloths
  • Nursing pillow
  • Milk or water bottles with nipples
  • Breast pump
  • Insulated bottle holder
  • Bottlebrush
  • Nipple cream for you
  • Nursing bras for you

For travel/mobility:

  • A baby carrier: You do not have to be a freaked out parent to wear your baby, you just have to want to do your regular work. If your baby doesn’t want to be kept in bed or cradle, you can wear him or her and do everything.
  • A stroller: Buy a stroller that has an infant seat, so that you can still use it once the baby outgrows it.
  • Sunscreen and Insect repellent: Mineral based sunscreen and natural insect repellent is available in our online store to protect your little angel’s delicate skin.

So there you go; those are everything that you will really need for a baby. Be sure to have these things handy before your newborn arrives in your life.
