    just get essential clothes and perhaps a few favorite outfits.. because people give you loads and i mean loads of gifts...loads of clothes.. 0-3 months usually..

    we have 3 baby grows 3 vests 2 tops 3 trousers, a jacket and a snow suit.. (we dont know if its a boy or a girl) but u seriously dont need to go nuts.. people buy u so much..and 2 blankets

    essentials..

    cot
    bouncer/swing
    blankets
    pram/pushchair/sling
    carseat
    steriliser/bottles

    you might want to get
    a moses basket/crib (hardly get used though)
    a baby gym (could be a gift off someone)
    cot mobile (again gift)
    night light

    cant be bothered to think of anymore right now.. head hurts

    Mothercare have a checklist section to give you an idea of what you can get. Not all of it is actually needed, but you'll at least have all the possibles covered and can decide what will work for you.

    You may prefer a sleep suit over blankets, or washable nappies over disposables... then a microwave steriliser over a plug in one. Have a read of the items and see what will fit in with your lifestyle and plans.

    don't forget

    big pants! (ones that you can throw away after)
    Panty liners (the really thick ones!)
    Nipple cream (if breast feeding)
    Cotton wool
    Small plastic pot (for water to change bum)
    Little socks
    Storage (for all your nappies and creams)
    A bag for when out (ones with bottle holders ar cleaver, the more pockets the better!) if it will fit on your pushchair the even better)

    Trust me you will have loads by the time the baby comes!
