There is a common practice of making newborn checklist of all needed things for a baby. As a rule it is written by parents with the help of soon_to_be grandparents as the most experienced experts. The newborn checklist helps to focus on the most important and practical baby things. Some items really become a surprise for new parents since they might not be aware of them.
For the first year make sure you have these things in your newborn checklist: Baby outfits, baby toys and baby bottles and nipples; For bath time you need _ baby bath or baby tub, or some baby safer to make it easier and to get a support while washing a baby; Baby crib, in fact it can be universal and be used up to 5 years old; Baby bedding, sheets and blankets. I would recommend also buying waterproof mattress protector. You will appreciate this thing at once. Baby slings and baby stroller to walk with a baby inside. Baby car seat _ to provide infant safety in the car. Baby shampoo without tears, baby powder, oil and lotion to take care of the gently baby skin. This list can really save you some bucks to spend on something else. If you decide to feed a baby with baby food then you surely should add this item to your week list of expenses and into newborn checklist.
