Our Baby Registry

I know that a lot of you are seasoned veterans when it comes to parenting & some of you are first time mamas to be like I am. I’ve had a few requests from the latter to share our baby registry! I also thought it would be great to share & have parents who have been there & done that weigh in on anything I may have missed or items that they just didn’t end up using & why! Obviously, every baby is different & every family is different. I’ve heard some parents share that something their first loved the second hated & vis versa. Regardless, I’m all for having all the info & being as prepared as possible so today, I am sharing our baby registry with you all.

Sharing everything on our baby registry broken down by category. Plus, the site we used to make registering super easy for us & our friends & family.

Our Baby Registry

I’m certain that all babies NEED are love, diapers, & a few outfits at first. However, a ton of items make parenting more convenient. I know my parents didn’t have a special bath tub or a snot sucker (ya, that is a thing) & I turned out just fine. Just because you don’t have to have something doesn’t mean it isn’t great to have & can make the world’s hardest job a little easier here & there.

Speaking of convenience, if you have not heard of Babylist, register there! A girlfriend told me about it & I am so very happy she did. It’s basically a one stop shop where you can add items from ANYwhere online to your registry so it’s all just in one easy to shop place. It also has options for shoppers to buy the exact item at different retailers. You can organize it by category, which I’ll also do below, & you can add a little bookmark on your browser to easily add items as your shopping around. I can’t tell you how much time this has saved me! I wish this was sponsored, but it’s not, because I am their biggest fan. You can mark items as must haves & even do group gifts for bigger ticket items that people can chip in on. I am linking our Babylist registry if you just want to sort through it easily, but I am breaking down our baby registry by category below so you can see the item name & easily add it to your registry or buy it for yourself.

General

We chose the Eufy because it supposedly can’t be hacked, has a large screen, & a far range. I’m so excited to be able to use the tote organizer in a non-traditional diaper bag that I can use for years to come. I WILL find a way to remove that ridiculous warning tag on the baby bouncer. I don’t understand why you’d make something so aesthetically pleasing & then put a supposedly non-removable tag right by the baby’s head? I’m going to work on it or there will be some other solution so I don’t have to stare at it. I’m crazy, I know.

Transportation

We test drove both the Uppababy stroller & the Nuna when deciding which to add to our registry. We both preferred how the Uppababy felt & the compatibility it has to be a double stroller + the storage. I also love all of the accessories it has, so we added those as well. I’ll do a full review on this once we have it & our little guy is here. We’ve also heard that the Doona is a MUST have! Charles’s friends who have kids told him this is the item they love most. It’s perfect for being on the go!

Feeding

When it comes to feeding, there is so much unknown. I’m going into it totally open minded to do whatever works best for mama & baby to ensure he is fed! I know babies may need to try several bottles to find what works, so we’re trying just a set of one & if he likes them we’ll get more of those or try others.

Bathing

Diapering

As far as diapers & creams go, I hear its all trial & error for each individual baby. I hear boys are totally different than girls & just like with everything else, keep an open mind! We did hear amazing things about the diaper pail.

Books & Toys

I’ve bought a few books on our own so far to fill bookshelves & need to look around for more! I feel like they don’t need too many toys early on, but that comes as they grow.

Nursery & Decor

We’ve heard so many great things about the SNOO, so while it’s a big splurge, we want to try it out! Knowing your baby is secure in it & can’t roll over will be a huge relief as first time parents. Plus, if it can help us all sleep through the night sooner then we are all for it! For all of our decor that we purchased to get our nursery in order, see our nursery design post. We’re trying to get this in order as much as possible on our own since so much has been back ordered the last year & it will feel like a big ‘to do’ checked off the list before baby. I know a lot of people register for nursery furniture, but we didn’t want to wait with all the shipping delays! I’ll share a full reveal when we finish it. Hopefully, in the next month or two!

Clothes & Accessories

A lot of the clothes I originally added already sold out by the time I went back through now to link them. I’ve bought quite a bit on my own, but know that babies wear so many outfits a day that it’s nice to have a ton on hand. I’ll probably add more closer to some of our showers! I’ve also heard the more you can get for newborns that zip or tie, the better. Too many snaps or buttons aren’t practical when you’re changing them so much throughout each day! I’m so excited for all the cute baby boy clothes though. I’m sure it’s no surprise that they are all neutral–along with everything else on our registry– but hey, he’s gotta be on brand! haha

If you are a mama (or mama to be) & feel like I missed any must have items or there are items you would do more/less of, etc. I would love your feedback below! This way other mom’s can see what you all have to say below to reference. I’ll do a post later on about my top registry items & then once we use them I’ll do reviews on our must have items for each stage. I know every baby & family is different, but it’s been so helpful for me to look at what other people have loved when building our registry.

Don’t forget to check out our nursery design for what that will look like. I also have posts on our gender reveal, our pregnancy announcement, & my first trimester essentials in case you missed them! If there are any other posts related to baby you’d like to see, please let me know. XO

    hi! registry looks great! the only thing i’d recommend adding (or just having on hand) is an old fashioned thermometer – contactless thermometers aren’t as accurate with babies and i believe med professionals recommend taking a rectal temp when they’re little! the kinsa thermometer is a good one to have since it sends stats right to your phone!

    Looks great! One thing I didn’t think of when I was a new mom was little baby gloves for when they are a newborn. Their nails are so sharp and it’s terrifying to trim them at first and they scratch themselves! I also had a little mini electric nail file that was easier than a nail trimmer. I also got so much use out of sleep sacks for when they get too big to be swaddled, a portable high chair for when you go to someone else’s house, my kids both loved sitting in a Bumbo floor seat before they could sit up on their own, and something I still use to this day is the little plastic basket you can put on top rack of dishwasher to wash all the little pacifiers, bottle parts, etc!

    So many must have’s on your registry! I am a mom of four and I can tell you as far as clothes you will only want onesies, coveralls and footies!!! It’s always exciting to buy cute clothes but when they are little, honestly up through the first year they live in PJ’s! It is so much easier!! And only zip ones!! My faves are Kickee Pants zip footies and coveralls {coveralls completely once they start walking which for my baby boy was right at 12 months} and I also love Baby Breez!! They are amazing and have the fold over feet and hands so they truly work at every age because they are convertible! I know the cute shoes and clothes are so fun but I know with my first I had 3 tubs full of shoes and clothes they never even wore because it just wasn’t realistic! Little Pajama and Cozy’s also have some good ones and if you prefer more of an outfit style you can do PJ sets that kind of look like outfits! And none of my kids even wore shoes until they were pretty much walking and needed them! And for first shoes when they walk make sure they are soft sole! It helps them learn to grip and walk! I probably have pages of more info just from my three babies personally but this is definitely a big one!

    I’ve gotta recommend some Tubby Todd products, especially their all over ointment! That stuff is a miracle worker. Also, check out Karrie Locher on IG. She has a “bringing home baby” and breastfeeding course and tons of helpful info/highlights on her IG page. I didnt have her info with my first but am preparing for my 2nd and have found it SO helpful ♡♡

    Also a first time mom. I have a lot of the same stuff on my registry! Only thing I would mention is you can get your breast pump free through your insurance! I got my spectra through mine. ( I think I had to pay a little because the spectra is the best. But they have a ton that are totally covered) edgeparkbreastpumps.com
