We forgot a comb & hairbrush. Our DD was born with a full head of hair, was a huge surprise.
One thing I didn't get around to before the birth was making a no-sew stretchy wrap (DIY hug a bub). I bought the fabric but didn't cut to size. I did it quite hastily after bub was born and then had to watch you tube vids to learn how to tie it. Really wish I'd been more organised so it was ready from day 1.

I only really bought some clothes, nappies, wipes, car seat, pram, basinette and cot. The rest we bought as needed. I can't stand clutter though, and the thought of unnecessary items lying around my house drives me bonkers.

A water bottle to rinse as you pee. It helps a little to dilute it a little over your stitches. (Try to use warmish water though or you get a shock lol)
Definitely cheap undies you don't mind throwing out, an lots of pad. Goodnights work just as well as maternity and can be cheaper in some places.
