Rubbing alcohol if you don't already have some, gas drops, swaddling blankets, burp rags (I use the gerber cloth diapers, they make great burp rags), bibs (babies drool a lot! lol),
well now my mind has gone blank, will let you know if I think of anything else. Also if you register on walmart or brus they have a list that kinda helps too, they over do it, but might give you more ideas.

Do you have any blankets? I like the really soft ones for holding them and the flannel ones are great for swaddling. You also might want to get a positioner, monitor, towels and make sure you have some NB diapers.

Tiphawee replied to ShannaKate2's response:
i still havent yet i just have everything on a list in walmarts lol.. but by the time i start ording ill be about 30 weeks or so, :/ i wanted to start earlier (trust me its easier) but didnt have the money then.. so the last three month im spending over 200 dollars each month buying things for the baby.. and after the baby is born i have to buy the crib so he'll be in a bassinet the first month (its cheaper lol)

Oh, baby hangers! (If you will be hanging LOs clothing) I know you don't need this right away, but the shopping cart cover.

mommyof3kiddos replied to Tiphawee's response:
It might be cheaper to just buy the crib and forget the bassinett. Where are you setting up the baby's room? Is he going to be in the same room as you? Or will he have his own room? If he is in the same room I say just buy the crib and skip the bassinett.

Tiphawee replied to mommyof3kiddos's response:
he has his own room, but i figured the first month or two he'll be in with me
