7 Essential Things You Need for a Newborn Baby ...


As a brand-new mom, things you need for a newborn baby are fresh on my mind these days!

Newborn babies actually require very little, but the market would have you believe otherwise.

So before you go and throw down all your hard-earned cash for all the trinkets with bells and whistles that promise a lot and then get tossed to the back of your closet, take a look at my list of things you need for a newborn baby!

These are mostly the items that I have found to be helpful and indispensable with my very own brand new baby!

1. Boppy Pillow

One of the things you need for a newborn baby whether you bottle-feed or breast-feed is a boppy pillow.

It makes feeding much more comfortable, and helps support baby so mom’s arms don’t get tired!3

Plus, boppy pillows are great for helping prop baby up and encourage tummy time as he or she grows.

2. Gas Drops

Gas drops have been my ultimate lifesaver!

When baby has a little bubble that refuses to come out, you may be in for a long night of crying.

Gas drops can immediately offer baby (and mommy!) relief and rest!

You may need to try a few brands before finding one that works best.

3. Swaddlers

Most newborns like to be swaddled, since it helps keep them warm and feeling secure.

You can use receiving or swaddling blankets, but they can be tricky to wrap a squirming, fussing infant in.

Get a couple of swaddlers!

They are easy and quick to use, and machine washable so that if baby spits up, you can throw it in the wash, no worries!

4. Onesies

It’s good to have a few outfits on hand for those rare outings the first couple of weeks.

But what your baby will likely end up wearing the most of will be little onesies and gowns.

These are easy to put on and take off, and you can change a diaper with no fuss.

Plus, babies like to be comfy too, so dressing them to the nines every day might just make them more fussy and irritable.
