Putting together a baby registry can be both exciting and overwhelming. There are so many options out there and it’s hard to sort through exactly what you need and what you don’t. As of mom of two, soon to be three boys I’ve put together this Baby Registry Checklist and Buying Guide to help you determine just what you’ll need!
Once you’ve determined what registry you’ll use its time to start picking out items you’ll want for your baby. It’s so much fun to start picking out cute outfits and accessories. But once you start getting into all the things baby will need on a day to day basis it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the number options out there.
And as a first time, mom it’s hard to determine what you’ll actually need. To help make this process easier I’ve put together the Ultimate Baby Registry Checklist which is a FREE downloadable Baby Registry Checklist to help you navigate your way through that confusion and give you a good idea of the items you’ll actually use!
The Ultimate Baby Registry Checklist contains EVERYTHING you need for your new baby. So don’t forget to get your very own copy at the bottom of this post! So once you have your registry checklist then comes the fun part….shopping!! Below is a buying guide based on items that I’ve been using for my two little guys and what I plan on using for our newest addition. If I haven’t personally used a product then its something that has been recommended to me by friends.
