    Essential Baby Gear

    Andie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    What baby gear do you need for your newborn? At some point, your little love will make his or her way out of your belly and you need to be prepared. We took the advice of moms and moms-to-be to tell us what will be most important to have on hand.

    This list should help you get all you need to take care of your baby during the early months. As your baby gets older, you will find other items that will make your life easier (like a jumpy seat or an exer-saucer!).

    Check out the full article for the entire list here ...then add your recommendations, wish list, and ask questions in the comments below.

    Happy shopping!
