Hi Mummy! I’ve shared this on another post, I’ll share again here. You may consider getting some from my list. I’m a kiasu + OCD + organised Mummy so I made sure I had everything before baby was born. Most of the stuffs I bought from Shopee or Carousell. The rest are from hand-me-downs. Some hand-me-downs are not listed as well. I started buying slowly when I was 6 months pregnant onwards. Drawer daily baby storage Wardrobe for baby stuffs Zip File for baby documents Baby cot Baby Pillows Toiletries Rack Palmers Stretch Marks Cream Bio Oil Bath Towels Wash cloths Pureen Liquid Cleanser Collapsible Bath Tub & Cushion Kodomo Hair & Body Cetaphil Baby Gentle Wash Pink Johnson’s Baby Powder Baby powder container with fluffy thingy Desitin Blue / Purple Ridwind / Gripewater Yu Yee Oil / Minyak telon Baby Nail clipper Manual Nasal Aspirator Kodomo Laundry detergent Downy Baby softener Infanity Baby wipes x 20 (80s) Soonsu Baby Wipes x 20 (100s) Changing mat Pampers Size Newborn Drypers Size S Huggies Size S Diaper caddy Portable bidet spray Maternity Belt Nipple cream Nursing breast pads Breast Cold Heat pad Nursing Cover Formula milk Milk powder container Thermal flasks Milk storage bags Permanent Marker Pump for breastmilk Hand sanitizer (liquid & hospital grade) Milk bottle brush set Dr Browns Anti Colic milk bottle set Avent Natural Starter Set Avent Classic Starter Set Avent Ultra soft pacifier Reversible Stroller Car seat stroller Tula FTG Carrier Baby Hair brush Baby Ear Thermometer Maternity high waist underwear Disposable maternity underwear Bathroom Slipper for hospital Vacuum sealed bags & Pump Nursing tops Nursing bra Socks for confinement Baby hangers Mummy Diaper Bagpack Baby socks Baby romper for sleep Baby romper for day use Cotton bud / pad Night light Maternity underwear Stroller organizer Stroller clip fan Stroller hook Stroller seat pad Cooling Adhesive for Babies Kodomo travel pack And the list goes on.. hopefully the above helps!

I started buying in my 3rd trimester starting from the big ticket items. As FTM myself with a 3 months old baby, I feel my biggest must-haves are my Ergobaby carrier, stroller, Haenim steriliser (makes my cleaning and sterilising of bottles so much easier as I mix feed), Joie car seat, cot and Spectra S1. For diapers I signed up for as many samples as I can frm the various diaper brands, goodie bags and friends whose baby have outgrown tt I ended up not having to buy any newborn size diapers for the first month. Luckily my baby has no skin issues with any brand. Don't buy too many baby clothes as baby will grow v fast. My baby cant even fit some of the smaller newborn clothes at his 2 weeks mark as he's a 3.8kg baby. Wipes: I'm using Infantino, bought during Shopee flash deal, much wetter and bigger than Pigeon. Standby some baby bottles and milk storage bags even if u intend to exclusively breastfeed. I didn't at first thinking I'll be fine but ended up having issues with my supply as I had csect and baby went to NICU for jaundice. Baby detergent, wash, bottle detergent, bottle sponge.
