It looks like most people have you covered but as someone who just had a baby boy at the beginning of January, I would like to recommend newborn baby gowns such as the one shown here:
They will make your life so much easier when changing diapers (especially since you will be doing it 10-12 times a day).
Also, I recommend getting Boudreaux's Butt Paste for diaper rash. My son developed diaper rash while still in the hospital, and this was the only thing that cleared it up.
Congratulations and Good Luck!

Besides all the stuff that everyone has listed I recommend getting a sitzbath, much better then the peri bottle, and if you plan on Breastfeeding find the phone number of a good Lactation Consultant BEFORE you need one.

By the way dreft and ivory snow is the best baby laundry detergent but it's a little on the expensive side but it does not make the babies skin itch and it smells great ohh and you might need pacifiers if you wanna use them and your gonna need bottles

Of course Diapers, wipes, carseat, breastfeeding supplies if you plan to nurse. I loved having a boppy to use to either nurse or bottle feed(it helps your neck and back from hurting) and a thing called a moby. When my son was a newborn he loved to snuggles and be close to my chest. I would wrap him up in it, he would feel secure and it freed my arms up to do things around the house. Also a must have is the What to expect the 1st year book too. Its the bible to all baby things. Good luck and enjoy being a mommy!

diapers, wipes, formula if not breast feeding, bottles, bottle cleaning brush, clothes, socks, blankets, spit rags, swaddling blankets, crib and crib sheets, carseat since the hospital won't let you leave without one, a really comfortable chair, pacifiers. One thing I absolutly loved was the blanket sleepers. It makes it really easy to change diapers at night. A night light, if breastfeeding a breast pump. Try to get as much rest as possible and enjoy your baby because they don't stay little forever

you may need a stroller formula if you do not breastfeed if you are planning to breastfeed and if the baby does not latch on don't get upset if you really wanna breastfeed your gonna need a breast pump your gonna need a bassinet or crib or playpen for the baby to sleep in if you want you can get a swing and you do not need a new one if you don't mind you can a used one if it works your gonna need something for the baby to wear so you can get preemie/newborn sleepers and onesies a mobile if you want for the baby to look at sometimes comes with a bassinet or playpen and a crib set if you get a crib and blankets
