As a new parent, trying to figure out what the heck you need for your baby can be super daunting – trust me, I know. I’ll never forget the first time my husband and I walked into Buy Buy Baby to create our registry. We legit looked like chickens with our heads cut off wandering around the store with that fancy scanner, not knowing a THING about well, ANYTHING. So today I’m sharing my list of newborn essentials – things we used all the time for Riley while she was super tiny. Even though Riley’s almost 8 months old now, some of these items I still swear by today, so without further adieu, here are our baby must haves for 0 to 3 months.

Now before you freak out, don’t let this list scare you. Most of the things you’ll need for your little one are pretty affordable – minus the crib, stroller, and carseat (this is the stroller I have, btw).
And as far as newborn essentials go – remember, pretty much everything with a baby is trial and error. Every baby is different and they’ll each have their own preferences. Some will like to hang out in baby swings and others will want you to carry them 24/7 – this is the carrier I have and it was legit a life saver because my baby girl always wanted to be close to me.
Not that I’m complaining, though. I mean, look at that face. I can’t believe she used to be that small.
Btw, these are the bows I mentioned in my video. Here she’s wearing the white one, but the pack comes with 16 different colors and it’s like, $10. Best $10 I’ve ever spent.

And that’s about it! Those are what I consider to be the most important baby must-haves / newborn essentials during your baby’s first three months of life.
