A cute, fashionable diaper bag.  I hated all the diaper bags I had gotten from the hospital - they were just blah!

A swing. It’s the best! Mothers get clothes, cribs, etc. … but the swing for a young mommy is definitely good.

Dori
Mom to Emi

What I found that came in handy were diapers and wipes. I didn't have to buy my own until my son was 2 months old!

Mom to Andrew

Formula. Call your local stores to see if it could be exchanged later in case it wasn’t the right kind. We have WIC and Food Stamps but some months we are still buying formula and baby food out of pocket.
