I would say sleep n plays, blankets, and a snowsuit. I think that's what they call it for babies.  Congratulations.

It's good to pack a baby bag for sure. Warm clothes cause it'll be cold, a snow suit if you're somewhere that gets snow, diapers, wipes, pacifier, burp cloths, blankets, they won't let you leave the hospital without a car seat. Also don't forget about a bag for yourself with toothbrush, toothpaste, hair brush, extra clothes, something to do (lap top, iPod, crosswords, etc...)

For at home a bassinet is great if you want to have baby next to your bed for easy access for breast feeding. Lots of blankets, towels, wash cloths, bouncer, portable play pen (for when they are bigger or in place of a crib) thermometer, baby nail clipper set, mittens and booties so he/she doesn't scratch themselves, also a Boppy pillow is good for breast feeding or propping baby up. Don't forget the other things like rash cream, shampoo, wash, powder, etc...
