I’ve seen over 35,000 registries go through our baby registry BabyList, and can confidently tell you no two families are the same. In addition to staying true to yourself, here are 4 easy things you can do when building your baby registry to make the process easier for you and your gift-givers. With these baby registry must haves, here’s how to create a list people will actually buy from, with only the things you’ll actually use. They are the perfect size, stay put and soak up A LOT. My favorite print was the peanut butter and jelly!
- The Copper pearl blanket is chic, soft and stretchy.
- Kids love these things, and we can see why.
- FridaBaby and FridaMom have some awe-inspiring products, so go ahead and check them out too.
- Although, yes, all of those things are a necessity, but looking into the future for purchases you’ll be making a few months down the road can save you so much money.
These AlvaBaby pocket diapers come with a cheap microfiber insert. Use these but add a Thirsties hemp insert underneath it . Why use this system instead of covers + inserts?
Must Have: Pump + Bottle Set
The tiny nails of a newborn have to be trimmed more than once a week and it’s hard to guide toddler wagon those clippers. I used to recommend buying sharp nail scissors and I still believe they work well. However, the new moms I spoke with seemed to prefer a nail grinder like this one which sounds even better. These burp cloths are super absorbent and equally as soft.
Car Seat Splurge Option
DeLonghi 1500-watt Fan Heat – A couple friends of ours just had a baby and recommended we keep a little space heater near the changing station! Newborns especially hate being cold, so we think this will help calm the fussiness around changings. I like that it’s small and turns off if tipped. Miracle Blanket – Anything with “miracle” in the title and plenty of 4- and 5-star reviews, I’ll take it.
Duck Baby Cup
Will you be using it mostly indoors or outdoors? Do you think you will need one that can function as a double stroller in a few years? Keep an eye out for products that offer longer warranties too.
Sage Organic Turkish Cotton Baby Towel Gift Set
I like these Burt’s Bees Baby Burp Cloths because they’re soft and organic, and have so many adorable colors and patterns to choose from! Leave a big bowl next to the sink where you can pile up the bottles and parts. Maybe even add some soapy water so you can just rinse everything at once when you have a chance. I recommend drying everything on a Large Boon Grass Drying Rack. We used Dr. Brown’s bottles from newborn through 12 months. They were recommended by the NICU due to their high quality nipples and ability to reduce air intake during feeds.
My little dudes have super sensitive skin. The only things I could put on their bodies were honest diapers and tubby Todd everything. Best items by far to keep this mama calm and out of the ER with flaming hot bums and peeling skin. We are jumping back into the world of babies after 6 years! I need a whole refresh on our baby supplies! I’ve read in some reviews and mom forums that their babies didn’t though, and the next thing I would’ve gone to if my babies didn’t like it would’ve been this top-rated swing.
