    Diaper genie, changing table and baby wipes! Also, cloth diapers, which I could use for burp cloths, protection from my son's "shooter," and something to catch the pee/poop that kept coming out during diaper changes.

    The carriers didn't work for me at all.

    Congratulations, choirfiend! I am not married nor have any children myself; but I have a new niece and a sister who is a nanny for many children. My sister mentioned the cups that conform on the babies forehead to wash their hair and help rinse out the suds without getting it into their little eyes. This seems to be very helpful. Also the pacifiers are always a help, and the little clips that attach the pacifiers to their outfits for when they spit them out. :)

    Congratulations!!!

    Although I haven't had children yet, during college I worked in a nursery taking care of the newborns and teaching parents how to wrap, diaper and bath their babies. There are a lot of great recommendations, wash clothes are indispensable, the absolute best baby T-shirts are the snap ones that MR recommended because you have easy diaper access and if you are bathing a baby in a drafty room it's easy to sponge clean without completely exposing baby (example here) The pacifiers most used by hospitals: soothies but my favorite thing to give any mom expecting a little boy is the pee-pee teepee it might be useful but more importantly it just makes everyone laugh

    Congratulations, choirfiend, on your pregnancy. May you have a blessed and enjoyable pregnancy with a happy and safe birthing!

    In addition to the many awesome suggestions offered already, I LOVED LOVED LOVED my baby bumbo seat. I used it for a loooong time.

    I was going to suggest diapers, but a lot of others already suggested it. Guess that one is well-covered... no pun intended. :)
