I was recently asked what things are a must-have for a newborn. Well my list is really really basic. I don’t need much for a newborn. And my newborn doesn’t need much but my touch, my breastmilk and my love. So here is my list of essential items for newborns.
2. Cloth Diapers
3. Baby Carrier – for me it’s a woven wrap
4. Cotton Onesies and Leg Warmers
And that’s it. I can’t think of anything else that I would add for a newborn essentials. Everything else for me is optional. I’ve found that as a mother, I just don’t need much with my newborn. And newborns are happiest with their mamas, so they really don’t need much either.
It’s not a long list but it has everything I need for a newborn baby.
