Whats on Your Baby Registry? Here’s what to add.

There is nothing more exciting than setting up a Baby Registry!
No, not even a Wedding Registry.

You will loose yourself for hours adding all the cute things to your Baby Registry.
Dad will probably be excited about 5 items then it’s all Mom lol.
Buying for your child is just so much more satisfying for a Mother than buying for herself.
Doesn’t matter if it’s your first child or number 10 it is exciting EVERY TIME!
There is always something new out that you did not have for your previous child or something you did not know you needed.



To begin, I highly recommend starting an Amazon Baby Registry.
This registry was the only one anyone bought off of for our last 2 children.
Its just so much easier for people to purchase items and have them shipped directly to you without even having to add your address. Amazon has EVERYTHING you could need and you can add products from other sites to your Amazon Registry as well. You will also be able to request gift cards from Amazon so you can purchase items later on as you need them. You can sign up for a welcome box and there is a Completion Discount of 10%. More info here. The registry also keeps track of everyone that bought off the list with their addresses making it easy to send thank you cards later.



Other popular stores to register at are Target and Walmart.

Your Baby Registry –

Many people like to get Walmart gift cards for future formula and diaper purchases.
Sometimes it is nice to buy the cute clothing, bedding, toys after the baby is born and as you need it and request diapers, wipes, and gift cards so you know you have the essentials covered. Remember you don’t necessarily “need” everything on the list, however, you should add anything you can think of that might be needed so everyone gets a chance to get you something they know you may need and enjoy. If you do not register you may end up with multiple items that you may have to return you may not have actually wanted. Maybe you will have a couple surprise showers and not realize how many people asked to see your list.

Some of our Favorite items

Here are a few of our favorite items that we used for our kiddos. The Johnny Jumper is #1. We used the same one for all of our kiddos and it worked so well it will be kept for the grand babies.


Do you have any favorites? Any items you look forward to adding?
I’d love to hear how your registry is coming along.
