As you prepare for your baby to come home, you will want to have many items ready. If you are having a baby shower, you can put some of these items on your gift registry. You can buy other items on your own before your baby is born.
The more you plan ahead, the more relaxed and ready you will be when your baby arrives.
Below is a list of items you will need.
