Preparing to bring home a newborn for the first time can be stressful! When I was pregnant I searched the internet over and over for newborn "must haves" and checklists. I combined a lot of the "essential" items into one large spreadsheet, and once I had all the items, I thought I was prepared. But then the baby came and we realized that we needed some items that were too specific to be on any of those lists. Here are five newborn items that were left off many lists, but I found extremely helpful. If you are expecting, or know someone who is, I hope this list saves you some time and stress and helps you feel a little more prepared!
