so what all would i need when the baby is born products and everything?

Maybe this will help!..List of things for newborn babies:
1. Car seat: This is one of the time consuming things to shop for. I would advise buying a travel system that has both a car seat and a stroller. The main advantage is that the car seat fits into the stroller. So, when the baby is sleeping in the car seat, you don't have to wake up the baby to get into the stroller. You can just fit the car seat into the stroller and the baby's nap is undisturbed. I bought the Graco travel system which I have no complaints about. The rear facing car seat can be used up to 1 year or 22 pounds of your baby's weight. Follow the instructions for fitting the car seat and you can go to the local fire department if you need help.

Things for newborn babies
Crib and bedding set:

2. Crib: Crib is another thing to buy for your baby to sleep at night and shopping for a crib takes a lot of time.

Crib linens
1 matress pad
2 crib sheets
2 waterproof mattress pads
2 light blankets to cover your baby.
3. Diaper related stuff: I bought the infant diapers at target. I like the pampers brand which is really good and do not leak easily. Check out my other hub on how to save money on baby diapers.

Baby wipes: Try to use thick soft wipes to clean your baby's bottom. I like the huggies brand which is thick and really good.

Changing pad: It helps to change your baby's diaper.

Diaper bag: I bought the back pack kind of diaper bag which is easy to carry, looks good and is very convenient. You can pack all your baby's things like formula food, bottles, diapers, wipes, clothes and toys. I bought the one that has a changing mat and bottle holder.

Diaper rash cream: I bought the A&D diaper rash ointment. You can also use this for baby's lip dryness.

4. Baby's clothes: .

7 onesies (0-3 months)
4 stretch suits
1 snow suit ( buy if the baby is born during the winter months )
2 pairs of socks
1 pair of mittens
2 hats
4 receiving blankets to cover your newborn baby
2 thick blankets
2 bibs
3 wash cloths
5. Bath items:

Bath tub
Buy packaged bath kits that contain many acessories like thermometer, comb, scissors, nail clippers.
Shampoo: I personally like Johnson and Johnson's head to toe tear free baby shampoo to bath the baby.
Baby lotion
Baby oil: Again, I prefer Johnson's brand
Aquaphor: For dry skin - I bought the aquaphor which is too oily. I heard that Eucerin is also good.
Baby comb and nail clippers
Towel: Always buy the one which is soft and gentle and wash before using.
Laundry detergent: I like the Dreft brand laundry detergent
New born first aid kit: I bought the safety 1st brand that comes with the comb, nail cutter, nasal aspirator and thermometer.

Breast pump to pump your milk into the bottle
Nursing bras if you are breast feeding
Breast pads
Nipple cream
7. Bottle feeding items

6 bottles and sterilizing equipment
1 bottle brush
1 bottle warmer
Infant formula milk: always check the expiration date and ask your doctor first.

Rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs (for the umbelical cord)
Infant tylenol - for fever (you will need it when the baby gets immunization shots)
