3) Waterproof pad
4) Tight-fitting, organic cotton crib sheet
5) Tight-fitting, organic cotton swaddling blanket
6) No toys
7) No loose blankets
8) LOTS OF VERY LOUD & CONTRADICTORY OPINIONS ABOUT CRIB BUMPERS
9) Baby monitor with motion sensor mat, high-definition video and ambient temperature display
10) Baby who totally won't sleep in the crib anyway, not even for five minutes, hooray!
