Baby Registry Must Haves for Parents

by Kimberly | Jul 10, 2018 | motherhood

  1.  Travel System –
    • A stroller and carseat travel system is the most convenient item you can have on your registry. The one in the picture is Chicco Bravo Travel System if I didn’t already have a stroller, I would go with this travel system. You can also buy strollers and carseats separate from each other. The stroller I own is the Baby Jogger City Select and I absolutely love it, it also has a couple of different carseats that can be attached to it.
  2. Dockatot –
    • I didn’t own this with Alyssa but I have heard so many great things about the Dockatot.
  3. Diaper Genie-
    • Trust me you’ll want something to keep those stinky diapers from smelling up the house! I owned this diaper genie with Alyssa, it was great!
  4.  Bottles-
    • You’re going to want to choose the perfect bottles for you and your little one. When I had Alyssa I used the Avent bottles and absolutely loved them. This time I plan to breastfeed longer than I did with Alyssa but I will still introduce bottles. This time I will be trying the comotomo bottles and the Nuk Simply Natural bottles. I’ve heard great things about all of them.
  5.  Halo Bassinest- 
    • I didn’t own this with Alyssa but I have heard so many great things about the Halo Bassinest. It’s perfect for the side of the bed the first few months, before you transition your little one into a crib.
  6.  Baby Swaddles-
    • Alyssa was not a fan of baby swaddles, so I am hoping baby girl #2 will love them because they can be so convenient for sleeping and keeping them warm.
  7.  Diaper Bag-
    • I have a few favorites for baby bags, I owned quite a few with Alyssa! My Ultimate Top 3 diaper bag is the Skip Hop Diaper Bag  I will have to rebuy it this time because hubby ruined the one I had with Alyssa! It is so spacious and can fit so much, I love it! They have it in a few colors: PinkBeige, and Smoke.
  8. Swaddle Blankets –
  9. Skip Hop Sound Machine-
    • Alyssa is 2.5 years old and a sound machine has been a must since day one. I love Skip Hop, and I will be purchasing this skip hop sound machine this time around.
  10. Baby Sleepers-
    • Baby sleepers to keep the babies comfortable, and the parents life easier. If you can get zipper sleepers, I highly recommend them! Here is a similar pair of sleepers to the one in the pictures.
  11. Pacifier-
    • Alyssa didn’t own a wubbanub but ill be trying it with the princess this time around. Alyssa always loved, and still loves her MAM Orthodontic Pacifiers (I will also be purchasing these for baby #2)
  12. Monitor
    • Definitely a must have item.
  13. Nose Frida-
    • I didn’t own a nose frida with Alyssa but ill be trying it with baby girl this time around
  14. Carrier-

 

I hope this has helped you, if you feel I left anything out that I must have for our little princess, please let me know down below in the comments!

Love,

    We LOVE our Tula baby carriers! It’s important to find one that fits your body. I thought I’d love the Lillebaby, but it was SO uncomfortable for me.

    • Kimberly

      I can’t wait to try the Tula one out! Hopefully it works great for me and baby!

    These are sure must haves for the newborn. I have kept my own list too when I gave birth to my kids. But, good thing, you have baby monitors available these days.

      Yes baby monitors are amazing!

    I remember when we were doing the baby registry for my son, it was so fun! The stroller system, bassinet, and bottles are definitely a must have! Although I would recommend registering for one of each type of bottle. My son was really picky and we havd to go through every brand until we found one he would take to!

    • Kimberly

      That is so true! Babies can definitely be picking, I didn’t even think of that because Alyssa wasn’t very selective she took any brand!

    You know, I’m a single man, middle aged, a bit set in my ways. Some days I look at parents and I think, ‘I’m glad I’ve been spared all that trouble.’ But reading your post brings out strong nest making instincts in me and reminds me that the only reason I’m doing anything is so that one day, when the right lady comes along, if I’m very lucky maybe I will be blessed with children myself. So, thank you for this blog post. It’s got me thinking.

    Looks like you have a pretty complete list here. I loved my baby carrier, to have my hands free and still snuggle up with my babies.

      It will be useful with a newborn and toddler! I can’t wait!

    These are all so useful to parents. I always bought #1, #5 and #7 when I found out I was expecting because I knew I’d use them and needed them. I should have put them on a baby registry.

      Thank you! I can’t wait to use them!

    This is a great list of items for your Baby Registry. For me the item I used the most was the baby carrier, I was able to keep my baby close to my heart and have my hands free.

    Honestly, I think diaper pails are so overrated (I’m still changing diapers too!).. A trash can with a lid is just fine!

    Reply
    • Kimberly

      Yep! That works fine as well!

    These suggestions are totally spot on …coming from a mum of two. For us the baby monitor was so important especially when our children slept upstairs and we were downstairs
