Default New baby supplies

I am starting to think about getting the clothes ready for baby 2, and I have no memory of what we needed for baby 1! We are not finding out this time around, and almost all of dd's things were pink, so I am pretty much starting over with newborn basics. (We have plenty of bibs/burp cloths/blankets/etc, so it is just clothes I am looking for advice on). DD was in newborn for a few weeks, so I am just trying to get a good start- I am not looking to buy long-term stuff.

So far I have snap shirts-8 long and 8 short sleeve
5 pairs of pants
6 sleepers
8 onsies
1 sweater
1 swaddle blanket
2 sleep sacs
1 hat
1 pair of booties

I think all I need is another sweater, a few swaddle blankets/sleep sacs, a few hats and some socks. Oh, and some gowns.

Anything I am missing in the clothing department for newborn? Once the baby is born and we find out what it is my Mom and MIL will go crazy with the shopping, so I am not worried about bigger sizes yet.

I think you'll be okay with that for the first week or so. Just remember how many clothes you'll go through with a newborn (spitting up, peeing and pooping on their clothes, etc.) but I think you could get by with that. Especially, if you plan to buy more clothes once you find out what it is

And try to get the onsies/shirts with the snaps along the shoulder or all the way down the front so they are easier to put on.

Sounds like more then enough! My poor kid only has 4 knit sleepers to his name right now
And a bunch of bibs! We had a ton of tiny stuff given to us that didn't get used as he grew too fast.

You might want to get a few hats as they come in different sizes despite all saying newborn. You never know what size of head you're baby will have.

I think the list you have made is just enough for the present and congratulations for your baby as well.
