This is a difficult one for me to answer, my "baby" is 15 years old!
Things you need to look at are:
Nappies (biggest cost - early on they can go through 15 a day or more)
Shampoo, soap, Bum cream, lotion, nappyliners, wet wipes
clothes - they can need dressing 3 times a day so you need at least 5-6 sets of clothes ( which they grow out of at a fenomenal rate - hopefully you will have grandma's and aunties to help provide this)
linen for both
Powdered milk and bottles if mum is not going to breastfeed ( will save you a lot if she does - and is much better for baby)
See http://babyproducts.about.com/od/preparingforbaby/a/basiclayette.htm for a list
