Basic Layette for baby

We are expecting a new grandson in February. Our first grandchild so I looked up the basic layette so I know what Aimee will need for Alijah. I love lists, as you know if you read my blog very often. I just wish there were a few more sales of baby stuff. this is all one NEEDS for a baby.

 Baby Needs: Clothing and Layette
  • 5-10 onesies or kimono style t-shirts
  • 5-7 baby sleepers or nightgowns  (these are the best for small babies)
  • 1 cold weather sleeper if necessary
  • 5-7 pairs of baby socks
  • 1-2 newborn hats,babies loose heat through their heads keep 'em covered
Baby Needs: Diapers and Bath Items
  • 2 packs of disposable diapers or enough cloth diapers for at least two days. Newborns can soil up to 10 diapers per day. One estimate is babies need 350 disposable diapers in the first month!
  • 1 pack of disposable wipes or 10 cloth wipes
  • Waterproof pad for diaper changes (In my family a blanket on the table or floor works just as well.)
  • 3-5 baby washcloths
  • 1-2 hooded towels, if desired. Regular towels will work, too.
  • Baby nail clippers
  • Digital thermometer
  • No Tears Shampoo
  • Baby Wash
Baby Needs: Bedding and Feeding

  • 3-4 fitted sheets for crib, cradle, bassinet, or traditional bassinet
  • 5-7 lightweight blankets
  • 1-2 heavier blankets, depending on climate
  • 10 burp cloths
  • 5-8 bottles, if you're bottle feeding
  • 8-10 bibs (I never really used these)
  • Breastfeeding pillow, Boppy is a great one!
  • Binky, pacifier,plug what ever you call it you will need 3 if using these
