 Baby registry checklist

Creating a baby registry can be an overwhelming experience, especially if you are a first-time parent. How do you shop for someone you haven’t met yet? How many bottles do you really need? The options can seem endless for every category from bibs to strollers and bath time to bedtime. Fortunately, we’ve been there before as well as many other parents and experts. Follow these 5 tips creating your baby registry:


  1. Create a list.
    Before stepping foot in the baby store, make a list. We’ve compiled a comprehensive guide of newborn essentials and baby registry must-haves to help you through the process. Download yourBaby Registry checklist here.
  2. Ask another experienced parent for help.
    Get tips from a professional — find a friend who’s done this before. Bring her along to walk you through the aisles and explain items that seem mysterious to you… like,what is aBoppy? If your friend can’t shop with you or doesn’t live close by, share a link to your online registry for suggestions.
  3. Go online to refine.
    There is no need to register for everything in one day. Take baby steps. Register for a few itemsonlineand then add more later on… all from the comfort of your own couch.
  4. Don’t forget the basics.
    You may have the urge to register for tons of adorable clothes and hair bows, but there is nothing you will need more of than the basics. Don’t forget everyday items like diapers (ina variety of sizes) and wipes.Your bundle of joy won’t stay tiny for long. Include products that your baby could use later on too, such as toddler-size pajamas and toys and books to promote healthy development.
  5. Just breathe.
    All babies really need when they first arrive are diapers, nourishment, simple clothing — and most of all, love. Keep focused on what’s really important as you navigate through the chaos of bathtubs, baby monitors and wipe warmers.
