Baby Registry

This post goes out to all of you mommies out there. I thought putting a baby registry together would be a cinch. Man was I wrong. I am registered at Baby's R Us. I have some basics like the car seat and stroller, playard, swing, vibrating chair, diaper bag, 3 sizes of diapers, baby bath, high chair, health care kit, monitor, bottles, and baby shampoo.

Since we don't know the sex yet I have put off putting clothes on there and some other things that really end up being related to the sex.

I want your opinions on what I need to have on the registry! I feel super overwhelmed about all of this. It seems like there is a ton of things recommended to put on that seem ridiculous to me but then I am like well what if I really do need that or what if that would be an awesome help?

So, ladies, what would your recommendations be? What are those essentials that I might be overlooking?



  1. You can put a steriliser on there if that is the route you want to go. I have the avent bottles and steriliser set. Plus if you are going into detail maybe put pediatrician approved laundry detergent on there so that you can get going on washing all of the clothes before the baby arrives!

  2. That is a great idea! Do you have a special detergent you use?

  3. I had a baby six weeks ago, and the things I couldn't live without are:

    - Soothie pacifiers
    - Swaddlers. They usually like being wrapped up tight and these are way easier than dealing with blankets that come unwrapped!
    - Cloth diapers to use as burp cloths
    - A TON of wipes. You'll use them!
    - Hooded towels
    - Basket that goes in the dishwasher to hold bottle parts. AWESOME.

    Hope that helps! You will probably get tons of baby clothes at a shower, so I wouldn't worry about that anyway!
