I'll admit that as an adoptive mom, I actually had only six hours to prepare for my daughter coming home from the hospital. We got the call that our daughter would be arriving one morning and six hours later, she was in our arms. So I'm living proof that you need very little to survive bringing a newborn home from the hospital. 

However, when my son arrived just under two years later, I was relieved to be much more prepared.
