After having 3 babies and knowing the bare minimum newborn baby items I needed, I wanted to share the necessities during the newborn stage to all my new moms!

Besides the usual diapers, baby wipes, and clothes, I added other newborn baby items that I felt like was a must have!

10 Newborn Baby Items You Need

This list is not in any particular order.

1. Nail Cutting Scissors

If you read my baby registry checklist blog post, then you know I’ve raved about these nail-cutting scissors for babies. And I will continue to rave about them because it’s been a lifesaver.

I love how these scissors make cutting baby nails so much easier and without worrying about clipping their skin. Typically, I’ll wait until my baby has fallen asleep to cut her nails and toenails and it’s been night and day using these nail cutting scissors vs actual nail clippers.

2. Bassinet

Whether you choose to co-sleep or not, you’ll want to get a bassinet for your newborn.

I used mine quite a bit for my babies. And I spent a wide range from as cheap as $60 to upward of $350.

3. Carseat with Stroller

4. Swaddles and Sleep Sacks

Swaddles were definitely top of the list for newborn baby must-have items because it keeps newborn babies’ arms from flailing and scaring themselves. And it also keeps them wrapped and warm like they have been in the womb for 9 months.

Another great thing about swaddles is that it’s multipurpose. You can use it as a light blanket for summers when your baby grows out of the swaddle phase.

5. Snot Sucker

There are quite a few different snot suckers for babies ranging from basic ones to the NoseFrida to some high-speed nose sucker or aspirators.

I’ve personally never used electronic nose suckers because the first two items worked wonderfully for us. But if you have a hard time getting boogers out of your baby, it might be worth trying out.

6. Burp Clothes

7. Manual Breast Pump

8. Zipper Newborn Pajamas

Don’t buy the button pajamas because they will be a pain in your ass especially in the middle of the night. There are some really cute button pajamas and can sometimes be even cuter than the baby zipper pajamas. But you can’t beat the convenience of the zippers.

9. Diaper Rash Cream

Newborn babies poop a lot. And that means they’re more prone to get diaper rashes. We used diaper rash creams like no other because all the blowouts and constant wiping had my baby’s butt raw.

Our personal favorite is the Boudreaux’s butt paste but I know another favorite of every mom is the Desitin diaper rash cream.

10. Diapers and Wipes

In Conclusion

Every mom is going to have that one or a few items they recommend. And I hope my list of newborn baby must have items helped you narrow down your baby registry or baby shopping list so that you only purchase the essentials for your newborn!
