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.
