I remember setting up both of my Baby Registries. My oldest son was born in 2010, while youngest son was born in 2016. With six years between our babies, and Jaxson being my husband’s first baby – we needed to restock on all-things-baby! I was happy to have my husband there with me the second time around, he was so helpful with setting up our list of needs. I think I had swollen ankles after walking around the store for that long for both my pregnancies (I’ve got chicken legs, so it doesn’t take much!).
I think with my next registry (I would only be doing that for my out-of-town family that requests a list of some much-needed items that will expire with our last baby) I will be making one on Amazon! They are actually having a 20% sale on clothing, gear, & more for September!
Walking around the store with a scanner and a suggested list is pretty intimidating! I remember putting more clothes on my first registry than much-needed baby items – and received just that. We were thankful for the gifts, but were still very much in need of the essentials. While some people look at your registry with great care – others don’t bother with it at all! It’s still smart to set up your registry with the items you’ll most certainly need, for those that actually will listen to and read through your list.
So, from a mom of two, here’s my list of Baby Registry Must-Haves!
