Hardly anything!!! I was so insanely over-prepared for our babies. You really only need diapers and wipes, a place to change your baby (I used the floor), a place for them to sleep, a few light blankets, and a couple changes of clothes.


Before your baby comes get some: diapers, wipes, burp cloths/ swaddle blankets (I used the swaddle blankets as spit up rags, my daughter hated being swaddled) also a few newborn outfits and 0-3 months outfits depending on baby's size.
