No matter how big your home is, it will always feel smaller after baby is born. It’s like they arrive, and then we instantly feel the need to buy so much stuff! With my first two, I admit to having a lot more things in the home for baby. This time, though, I opted for a more conservative approach and created a list on Amazon of minimalist baby essentials for those first few months.

The reduction in clutter has done wonders for my anxiety levels!

This list includes all the essentials you’ll need for baby’s growth and development in the first three months. This is completely based off of what we actually purchased for our third baby—you know, the one you find out you’re having *cough* plan to have after you decide to give away all your baby stuff.

I especially recommend the Bright Starts lion tag toy! This thing is Jocelyn’s absolute favorite toy and has been since she was born. As a newborn, she’d stare at it and smile. Now, she snuggles with her little lion, plays with the tags, and teethes on it, of course.

I’d also highly recommend purchasing stock in Wubbanubs. We currently have 4 in our house and another at the grandparents’ house, and it is so worth it.

    Yes!!! I’ve had soo many friends just have so much clutter and broken toys, when kids grow out a lot of this stuff so quickly. This list rocks, as I’m expecting in September and our real focus is learning materials as well as books. Reading at any age cannot be bad, whatsoever!

    Thank you for this list! Ours is very similar. We researched everything and picked what we would want to buy but purchased almost nothing, and waited to see if we would need it. Looking back at our list, we only purchased a third of what we were told we would need. I’m so grateful we didn’t buy the other two-thirds… What a waste of money that would have been 😉

    I also used the Britax stroller and the Swedish snot sucker for my kids! Your list is very helpful! It’s also easy to shop online through Amazon. 🙂 Thank you!

      You’re so welcome!

  8. I totally agree, decluttering is sooo helpful in reducing stress/overwhelm. I was lucky to be having two boys in a row, so no need to buy anything really, but I still find myself adding to the donate box! Less is more 🙂

      You’re so right! We donate several times a year. Less mess makes for saner parents, lol.
