I got 3 packs of these off of amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PDIX9AM/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_v6WGCbJ8W0HRH
I have a baby wipe warmer (but a random plastic box will work too). Dump em in. Pour sanitized (boiled, then cooled down) warm water over them. Remember to wipe box with soap or alchol once in a while (like any time you are out of wipes). I throw each wipe in a wet bag after use. Throw em in my laundry seperately, or with my cloth diapers.
I bought 3x of these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PDIX9AM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabt1_lRXWFbM0D7VT5?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1. I really like it! I don't know how to sew else I would've tried making my own. I have my Peri bottle that I fill with water and squeeze into the cloth to wet it as I use them. I still use some disposable wipes for poops tho. But recently, I've been using regular TP. I take the tube out of the middle and grab the TP end from there instead so it's not all over the place. I wet it with the Peri bottle before use, grab poop / clean booty.
I like these babygoal Reusable Bamboo Baby... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PDIX9AM?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I use Babygoal wipes from Amazon and a spray bottle of plain water. I thought the wipes were so tiny at first but they're actually the perfect size to get in all the nooks and crannies. My baby is 11 weeks and works great so far!
I took a minimalist, kind of granola, approach. Skipped the infant bucket seat and went straight to a convertible (follow SafeInTheSeat for all things car seat safety). Was gifted a stroller but never used it, preferred a carrier (I'm not in the city and we live in a rural area.) Skipped the crib and used a pack n play. So knowing that, here's mine:
A place to sleep. We got a pack n play with the bassinet insert and my 2yo is still sleeping in it (the PNP, not the bassinet insert obvs)
Clothes. You only need enough outfits for however many days you plan on going before doing laundry, plus some extra for messes. Get the Cloud Island brand sleepers from target. They zip backwards to make diaper changes easy, have elastic on the ankles so they stay put, and fold over mittens if you need them. Skip the baby pants. They're the worst.
Swaddles. I liked the halo ones. You don't need a lot of these.
Noise machine for sleep. We used an air filter we already had.
Magic merlin sleep suit for swaddle transition. Maybe you'll get lucky and your baby won't mind not being swaddled or will transition easy. Mine didn't.
Carrier. Baby ktan was okay for early days but quickly outgrown. I also have a lillebaby and a boppy comfyfit. The boppy is my favorite, but I wouldn't pay full price. Get it on an Amazon open box warehouse deal.
Rocking chair. Still using mine 2 years later.
Haakaa. Even if you don't plan on breastfeeding, I think it would be super helpful for relieving engorgement.
Burp rags. Don't get the pretty ones. The gerber or oxocozy prefolds are far superior and will come in handy when potty training.
If you plan on cloth diapering, skip the diaper genie thing and just use a laundry basket with holes. A bidet attachment for your toilet is nice and comes in handy postpartum when everything is too sensitive for toilet paper.
Cloth baby wipes even if you don't plan on cloth diapering, these things work SO much better than disposable wipes. They actually get the poop off instead of smearing it around.
High chair. I got the cult favorite Ikea antilop and hated it. My kid was a reluctant eater and ended up in feeding therapy. I later splurged on a Tripp trapp and wish I had just got it from the get go. My 2yo is still using it and I'll be buying a second chair for the may baby.
Jumperoo. I was pretty anti-containers but when you just need 15 fucking minutes, they're great.
LPT: Don't get a rug. Get a mat like this. Poop, puke, and everything in between will end up on the rug, and these mats are super comfy when you're rolling around on the floor with your kiddo.
Also if you're considering a Lovevery subscription but you're hesitant about the cost, just get it. You'll end up saving money by not buying other toys. I started the subscription at 1 year last time but will be getting the infant one this time.
Things I regret buying: so many swaddles, clothes that weren't cloud island sleepers, receiving blankets, Ikea antilop, skip hop activity center.
I bought these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PDIX9AM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_E7W3sA1fkTK6A I probably have 36 or so but I don't go through them all before a wash. You can use just water but I got this and mixed it in the peri bottle I got from the hospital https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B00E570Z72/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fabc_EX2H5SNA325A0VFFJ1Z4
This one is just under 5"x5"
I bought two cheap PUL rubbish bags from Alva 3 years ago when my first was tiny. They have a zippered bottom, so I'd unzip, dump the diapers into the washer, and just throw the bag in with them. Never a smell in 3 years. I'd imagine a cotton bag getting smelly really quick. With how wet and gross those diapers can be, it's much better, in my opinion, to have a system that won't lead to leaked pee/poop water all over the house.
As for wipes, I've loved the bamboo ones I found on Amazon 12 for only $6. They are smallish, but frankly, with how thick they are (and two different sides, one super soft, one a little rougher for poop), I find I can get away with one, sometimes two for poops. I both use California Baby diaper spray and I make one myself using Baby Bites Wipes Solution cubes.
