    As far as groceries go see if any of the delivery services come to your area. Have a trial run or two before baby arrives. Very convenient as you can do your shopping with your phone/tablet in one hand and a baby in the other. No need to shower/dress/brush hair if it's been a tough night/day.

    All of the above plus a few basic clothes in bigger sizes (season appropriate). I swear DD would grow out of clothes overnight!
    I was given some 000 and 00 onesies which came in very handy.

    definately lots of pads and breast pads too. Oh and nipple cream. Things like toilet paper and washing liquid. Others have listed most like infants friends, baby balsam and the fess nasal spray.

    Nappies and wipes i wouldnt go too crazy on. They grow out of newborn ones pretty quickly but i like babylove and the coles little explorer nappies personally.

    Wipes u need to be careful bulk buying incase bubs has a reaction. But all natural wipes like the water wipes or wotnot wipes you should be pretty safe and the kindest on babies skin too.

    Definitely having meals frozen is the biggest thing. At first i wondered if id ever be able to cook dinner again as i had no time lol

    I also stocked up on things for me like my deodorant, hair products and makeup so I wouldn't run out of anything I knew I'd want to make me feel human.

    And wine. Lots of wine.

    If you're going to use disposable nappies, don't buy too many. Babies grow ridiculously fast in the first months, and a nappy that fits them one week can be decidedly smallish (resulting in leaks and poosplosions) the next. Given how expensive they are, you don't want to be left with boxes of too-small nappies you can no longer use. (I say this from experience!)

    Do buy enough cheap onesies in small sizes so that it doesn't matter if you miss doing the washing for a day. Newborns are grots- I swear one day DS1 went through a new onesie every couple of hours!
