New Baby Checklist
Want to make sure you have everything ready for your new arrival? Download our free printable baby checklists or create your own custom checklist using our Baby Checklist template. The Newborn Checklist is a basic list of necessities that newborn babies typically require. The New Baby Checklist is a more comprehensive list of baby supplies including; general care, clothing, diapers, feeding, sleeping, travel and entertainment.
Both newborn and baby checklists also work great for planning your baby registry for a baby shower.

"No installation, no macros - just a simple spreadsheet" - by Jon Wittwer
The Baby Checklist Template download is an Excel spreadsheet that includes 3 different worksheets, described below. You can also download each worksheet separately for OpenOffice.
1. New Baby Checklist
Create and print a comprehensive checklist of what supplies and items you want to get for your new baby. You can add or remove items as needed.
Disclaimer: This list is comprehensive, but won't match each parent/baby lifestyle. It's a starting point at guiding you in what you want and need to have for baby.
2. Newborn Checklist
Create and print a newborn checklist of the basic items you will need when you bring you're baby home. With this spreadsheet, you can add or remove items as needed.
Disclaimer: This list attempts to include only the necessities for a newborn. Some babies may require items not on this list, but this should at least help you with knowing what you may need.
3. Mom's Delivery Day Bag Checklist
Create and print a checklist of what mom should have ready in her bag to take to the hospital. You can add or remove items as needed.
Disclaimer: Sending daddy home to pick up something you forgot could lead to him missing the birth. Take a tour of where you will deliver your baby, and where you will stay afterwards. That will give you a better idea of what to bring.
