Preparing for a baby is such an exciting time in your life but can quickly feel overwhelming, so here is a list of my must have newborn baby essentials so get you started. This list is what I personally like to have for a newborn and up to the first three months of their life. See which items will be essential for you and work best for your baby.
After coming up with this list, one could easily argue that this isn’t very “minimalist,” but I have found that I loved having all of these items and they made my life easier. We are expecting our third baby so I feel like with each baby I have a better understanding of the items that I actually need.
