    How do you pick what items to put on your registry?

    Lucie's list has been super helpful, as well as recommendations from friends and here on the Bump.

  • What items on your registry are for baby's nursery?

    We were team green for baby #1 and again this time - so we don't put too much on decor. We keep the rooms a neutral color (with DD, the room was green. we've since moved and the room is tan). When they get old enough, they can pick the color (DD picked a peach-pink last summer).

    Mostly just the necessities - diapers, monitor, wipes. We registered for all neutral things the first round so we are golden on clothes up until 3 months if it's a boy and forever if it's a girl.

    Crib, glider, dresser, changing pad, crib sheets and maybe the play mats but those will probably be everywhere!

    By reading tons of reviews and finding a product that I think will best suit our needs.

    A double stroller is my #1 item that I feel I need. Luckily I still have a lot of old baby gear from DS that I can use!

  • What items on your registry are for baby's nursery?

    Crib, mattress, changing table pad and rail, touch light, one decorative item, hamper. We are using most of the existing furniture in the room and DH wants to buy me the glider I want so we don't have a lot specifically for the nursery.

  • since this is our second we have all the big items. i'm hoping for smaller items like more bottles, blankets, clothes since it's a boy this time around and lots of books  i never thought to put books on a registry but i wish i did for DD.

    I already have a nursery/playroom set up. I'll probably concert that to DS' big boy room and transition him in there, and the new baby will cosleep and stay in my room. So I don't really have much on my registry along the lines of nursery furniture or decor. 
     ETA: a dresser! Definelty need one of those! Struggling to have room for all of DS' clothes as is.

  • How do i pick - this is #3 so we are down to just essentials at this point. but recommendations. also if you have friends/siblings having babies around you. try to get the same infant car seat so overlapping babysitters (parents) or if you need help in a pinch they have your base!

    What do i want - Self rocking, rave making, RNP.

    for the nursery - we are reusing a lot of stuff. so all i really need is a sheet. but not just a regular sheet. a cool sheet.

  • How do you pick what items to put on your registry?

    As a first time mom, this was overwhelming to me! We just walked around the stores to each department and mostly guessed about what we needed! I am sure we missed something, or have items we don't really need. I also have asked family and friends about what items we need and have watched a lot of mommy/pregnancy videos on YouTube.

    What items on your registry are for baby's nursery?

    I have some nursery decor like curtains on my registry. I also have diapering things like a diaper genie and changing table covers on my registry.

  • Oh I also plan on asking nicely/begging a couple fellow bumpies to look at my registry when it's finished and telling me if anything looks whack.
    I am doing this as well with a few of my friends who recently had baby's.

    What items on your registry are for baby's nursery?

    We have some big things but still need bedding (not the crib just sheets), diaper pail, and changing table. I also want another dresser, the one we originally wanted to use is kind of small the more I look at it. I reaaaallly want a rocking chair in there as well. 

    Have you included any unique/surprising items on your registry?

    No I don't think any of our items are surprising really. I sort of feel like a lot of people will get unique or surprising things for the baby shower just because a lot of people express their own uniqueness through gift giving. 


  • Have you included any unique/surprising items on your registry?
    Nothing unique, but making sure we are adding items for later on in the toddler years, like sippy cups and feeding items.

  • What items on your registry are for baby's nursery?  Convertible crib, dresser (which will be used as a changing table too), mattress. Possibly more sheets it we have a girl (we have a 2 yo son). I think we'll move our glider that we already have into the nursery for new baby. 
  • Have you included any unique/surprising items on your registry?

    I saw a friend put a baby memory book on hers, which wasn't on my checklist, so I did as well because I love the idea. Besides that, just the typical stuff :)

    Unique/surprising things on my registry - maybe the cloth diapers and wipes to some? But other than that pretty normal
  • Have you included any unique/surprising items on your registry?

    We have tap lights on our registry.  They were so handy with baby #1 for middle of the night feedings and diaper changes.

  • what items are on your registry for babies nursery? 
    nothing yet until we find out the sex. this is baby #3 so I have the essential things needed for a nursery
  • Have you included any unique/surprising items on your registry?

    I mean, someone who doesn't have kids or didn't BF might be surprised to see witch hazel and lanolin cream on there...but...necessities.

    What items do you want the most from your registry?
    Definitely things that are practical and we will use often.  I would LOVE for someone to buy our travel system.  Those suckers are expensive!

    How do you pick what items to put on your registry?

    I do TONS of research. Asking the STMs here on the Bump has been helpful, as they've been through this before. I read reviews on sites like Amazon, and sit down with DH to discuss what we want most in an item.

  • How have you shared your registry with your friends and family?
    Since this is our third, we aren't sharing it unless someone really wants to get us a gift and asks what we specifically want. For our first, it was included with the shower invitation.
