13. Set up a diaper changing station
This may seem obvious, but you'll need to create a space to store diaper supplies and change your baby. In addition to wipes and diapers, you'll want to have some sort of rash cream ready to go, even if you don't end up using it for a few months.

Likewise, a changing pad or table is worth the space requirement. If you don't want a separate table, consider securing a pad to the top of a dresser. Having a dedicated space to change baby makes it easier on your body than bending over a bed or couch. If your house is large or has multiple stories, consider filling a diaper caddy and creating an additional changing space in a central living area.

And, last, but not least, think about where you're going to throw away disposable diapers or store dirty cloth diapers until they're washed. I thought I could get away without buying a diaper pail, but by the time my daughter was eating solids, this was no longer a pleasant choice. I gave in and bought one when she was around six months old. It was worth the investment.
