I initially wasn’t going to do this post, but it came highly requested by a bunch of new moms who read the blog and feel as lost as I do/did when it comes to baby registry items. After DMing with a bunch of you on Instagram, I thought it could be helpful to do this in two-fold. First (this post), sharing what we registered for. And then come back with a follow up after we have had plenty of time to figure out what we used, didn’t use, love, didn’t love, were glad to have, and wish we had.
(I have to put this disclaimer here that all of this was based on internet research plus recommendations from friends I trust! I have never done this before, so it’s a bit of a guessing game for now until we figure out what preferences our baby has. As you can imagine, every family and every baby is different and will have different needs and preferences!)
WHAT WE REGISTERED FOR
I used Babylist to gather all of the items and it could not have been simpler. I have zero affiliation with the site and found it via Google. Just wanted to share that I have been very happy with how it works! I added the bookmark plug in to my browser and could easily add any baby item as I found it to our registry, similar to how you might pin a photo from a website to your Pinterest board. I love that this allows you to gather items from across the internet. From Amazon to Nordstrom, you can add it all! Beyond just creating a registry, I have found it personally helpful to keep track of items we want for baby even if they don’t end up being gifted. It’s like my own little Excel spreadsheet!
Main Stroller: Uppababy Vista V2
Infant Car Seat: Nuna Pipa RX (currently sold out)
Extra Car Seat Base: RELX Infant Car Seat Base
Travel system: Doona Car Seat & Stroller
Crib Sheets (I registered for a few from various places!)
CLOTHES & ACCESSORIES
** It was recommended to me that I not register for clothes or blankets since people typically gift those items anyway… but I couldn’t resist adding some fun clothing items out at different price points if for no other reason than to demonstrate the kind of style Mike and I prefer clothing wise. (Maybe that’s weird, but you know… lol) But honestly just have no idea what we need quantity/style/function wise yet.)
