Buy onesies that button down the front instead of rompers (getting a newborn's fragile head through the neck hole was a real challenge for me back then). Long sleeved zipper rompers with covered footsies for easy diaper changes at night if you intend to have baby sleep with the aircon on. Crib for night; bouncer for daytime, playmat for tummy time. Bathtub, head-to-toe baby wash, and chemical-free detergent. And of course, diapers and unscented wet wipes. And finally, a newborn carrier to "wear" your infant simply because you can still do stuff around the house hands-free while keeping baby soothed. As for decor/toys, high contrast colours are best for catching newborns' attention/focus.

Most importantly to buy what you need. Like breast pump, breast pad and storage bottles cz you'll be doing alotof feeding. Newborns i think the most important you need is onesies, socks, mittens, swaddles possibly 4pcs, milk bottles, carrier and bathtub. And telon yes. To massage baby.


Just a little advise when buying newborn baby clothes. Don't buy too many. Your baby will outgrow newborn clothes in a flash and as they hardly go out, all those super cute going-out clothes will be a waste! 😭

For a start i got a baby cot, something lightweight for me and able to rock. Then i got few tops, bottoms, socks, mittens and hats. Changing mat as well! Then followed by bottles and stroller. All at baby fair :)
