A bassinet was essential for us. We bought a crib but honestly our 1st rarely slept in it. A baby tub was essential for us and although i desperately wanted to breastfeed my milk didnt come in right away and when it did i produced very little so we had to do formula. Definitely have some on hand. Definitely invest in bottles and lots of them we had about 10 to start. Also several changes of clothes and defintely lots of onesies Just my experience but in tgethe end its up to what works for you and baby.
