Top 100 Newborn Essentials
What does your baby really need in the first few months? Here at Babble, that's a question we've spent a fair amount of time thinking about. Like you, we've fallen prey to many a baby gear aisle, lured by the promise of some miracle gadget that will make our little one eat or sleep or poop better than any other miracle gadget out there. Like you, we've stared at price tags through sleep-deprived eyes, wondering if the purchase of sanity was really a possibility.
Here's the good and bad news: Nothing you can buy is going to guarantee you a stress-free existence with your newborn. Tiny people are a handful, and even the easiest babies will have some troubled times. That said, there are at least a few things (or 100) that can absolutely make life a little easier. No, we haven't found that diapering robot we thought would have been invented by the time we had kids, but we have learned that having a few things on hand can make every day a little saner, not to mention cleaner. Read on for our all-time favorites.

You’ll want roughly three crib sheets on hand, depending on your desire and ability to do frequent laundry. The vast variety in crib sheets can be quite overwhelming, but you can always find something to match your style and budget, from basic cotton to designer prints to pricey organic sheets. You can also find unique handmade sheets, like this brilliant baby bedding that also measures your infant’s growth. Keep in mind that certain crib mattresses might require special sheets (like the Stokke Sleepi).
