Expecting your first little bundle of joy? Registering for all the necessities for your new baby is fun but it can be a bit overwhelming. I know walking into the store I was certainly overwhelmed trying to decide what we would need. Swings, bouncers, bottles, pacifiers, the list goes on and on. I think my hubby and I went around the store 5 times back and forth when we were registering!
The best advice I can give is to sit down and make a list of all the items you want before you go in to the store to register. Because when you walk in you will get distracted – especially by all the tiny adorable baby clothes and tiny itty bitty baby shoes! By making a list for yourself you can prevent accidentally forgetting to register for an important item.
Here are a few I would definitely recommend including on your registry –
- Crib Sheets – nice soft ones
- Sleep Sacks – safe and snuggly warm for baby
- Burp Cloths – having two babies with reflux burp cloths were a hot commodity in my house
- Diapers – lots and lots of diapers 🙂
- Pack-and-Play – Great for at home and trips to grandma and papas!
- Swing = my lifesaver, my girls only took naps in the swing
- Exersaucer – hours of fun/baby containment = priceless
Also here is a tip – Stick to gender neutral colors and styles for the bigger items. Chances are you’ll be hanging on to the bigger items for when baby #2 comes along 🙂
