^ sis cheniwin, thanks for the tip and same here for clothes. we didn't get that many, i think we have about 10-15 longsleeved, sleeveless, and shortsleeved bodysuits ranging from 0-6 months in unisex color. we also only have 2 swaddles/receiving blankets because my friends have said that they never really used them - their babies were fine with the bodysuits for sleeping.
our hospital explicitly says on their website that we only need to bring going home clothes for baby and myself and nothing else so we're holding off on other stuff for now like the bathing accessories. for diapers, we are committed to cloth diapering so i'm slowly building my stash and we got a few newborn sized cloth diapers. but if the newborn sizes will still be too big for baby then we'll probably use the same diapers that the hospital will use for baby.
for toiletries, we're going to continue using dr. bronner's, we started using it this year for my husband and myself and that's what we'll use for baby as well.
for bottles, we are holding off first because my friend said she went through 3 different brands and ended up using the same brand as the hospital used because that's what their baby liked. she has very little milk right now so they need to supplement with formula. but our other friend said that when she didn't produce any milk in her first week, what she did was just continue to make her baby latch and she also pumped to get her body to produce more milk, which is why i got a hospital-grade pump
have happy and safe pregnancies everyone!
