Baby Showers

Registries..too much?

I am registered at 3 stores. The first place I registered was at Baby Depot which has many of the same things as BRU but cheaper. Then I registered at BRU because I love the store. I was told I needed to register at Walmart since more people are likely to go there. Are 3 registries too much? All 3 were included on my babyshower invites and I worry that I may sound greedy or something.

Re: Registries..too much?

  • Personally, I'm not put off by 3 registries because I'm going to pick the store that's most convenient to me and just shop off that registry.  However, if your registries have 300+ items each with multiples of everything that I have to sort through, then I think that gives off a greedy vibe - I went to a shower where the parents registered for FIVE pack and plays, SIX crib bedding sets + room accessories, etc. for 1 baby - it made it really hard for me to pick out something I thought they would want/need.
  • Thank you that makes me feel better. I have about 50-100 items on each and some are the same at each place. My gosh five pack and plays!! What in the world would someone do with that many..

    I probably wouldn't register for the same items at different stores though.  And why would you register for five PNPs?  I wouldn't side-eye 3 registries, but 5 PNPs? Yeah.

    This, I have two registries and they have none of the same things on them. What's the need for 5 play yards?

  • I wouldn't care how many stores someone is registered at. I would just pick the store I want to shop at and go. If I am buying from the registry.

    This.

    I didn't even register for ONE PnP...I would be irritated going to a shower where a couple registered for that much gear. They do know you can PACK up a PnP and move it from room to room right? I wouldn't see the point of buying them a crib set at all..we're they going to try all five out and return the rest? I would feel my gift was disposable for a lack of a better word.

    I didn't register for 5 pack and plays I dont even think I registered for 1...but will change some items so there isn't duplicates from store to store.

    Okay, but did you read what you posted?  What conclusion did expect everyone to draw from that?

    Did you read what she posted? "My gosh five pack and plays!! What in the world would someone do with that many.." How would you come to the conclusion she registered for 5 based of that?

  • She didn't say she registered for five pack in plays. Read the second post, she was commenting on the post where someone said she saw a registry that had five pack and plays on it. Thoroughly read before you assume....

    Ha! I just went back and read through.  I didn't realize she was responding to a post about 5 PNPs since she didn't quote who she was responding to.

  • I'd say that ALL the invites I've received have 2-3 registries.  I have no problem with 3.
  • We registered at Target, BRU, and Diapers.com. I did put duplicates of some items, such as a couple packs of diapers on each, Bath soap on each, bottles on each... Just so people knew what brand/style we were planning to use. But I didn't do duplicates of larger things such as the PnP, high chair, etc. that we definitely only needed one of. The other items if we got multiples of was ok because we would be buying multiples ourselves.
