The Essential Pregnancy Gear List for Expectant Moms
WebMD makes pregnancy gear simple for expectant moms.
Diapers and Wipes
Layette. A layette is a collection of clothing for a newborn, and
it's a good idea to have it on hand ahead of time. A layette typically
includes receiving blankets to swaddle the baby, pajamas, onesies, socks, hats,
bibs, burp clothes, and towels. It's a good idea to wash everything in advance
with a mild detergent, as baby's skin is very sensitive.
Bottles, pumps. If you are going to breastfeed, you may need a breast
pump and extra bottles to freeze and store milk. Pumping will give you more
flexibility if you need to leave your baby with a sitter. If you will be
using formula, you will need bottles (which must be sterilized) and more
formula than you can possibly imagine.
