Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Little tummies products:  Gas drops, constipation drops, vapor rub for babies (especially with winter coming on) - those were my big ones that I didn't have that I always try to include in peoples gift baskets now.  (Babies R Us and Target carry them, walmart carries some of the little tummies products, but it depends on your area).

alcohol wipes for the cord, and if its a boy and being circumsized then bacatracin and little gauze squares.

I don't think you need alcohol for the cord stump - many docs are saying just let it air dry.  Make sure you have plenty of burp cloths/old cloth diapers around - for drool and spitup and whatever else needs cleaning, and blankets for baby to lie on as you move him/her around the house.  Good luck!

Tylenol is a definite must have. My little boy got the flu at 6 weeks and was miserable. Plus it helps with fever, headache, earache, and when they get shots or are sick or teething! Good luck! :)
