Baby Registry Must Haves for Parents

July 10, 2018
  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!

    My daughter is having a baby soon. These choices will help me to buy her a gift.

    • Kimberly July 10, 2018 at 11:10 pm

      Glad I could help! Congratulations to her 💕❤️

  • Shannon Gurnee July 11, 2018 at 12:03 am

    There are definitely some amazing things available for babies these days! This is a great list of things to include on your registry.

    • Kimberly July 11, 2018 at 8:08 am

      Thank you!

  • crafts4toddlers July 11, 2018 at 12:17 am

    What a great list! I have 3 kids and the baby swaddles definitely came in handy!

    • Kimberly July 11, 2018 at 8:08 am

      They can be pretty helpful!

  • marciemcheung July 11, 2018 at 1:20 am

    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 July 11, 2018 at 8:11 am

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

  • Princess Quinn July 11, 2018 at 3:12 am

    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.

    • Kimberly July 11, 2018 at 8:11 am

      Yes baby monitors are amazing!

  • Corinne 🍒 (@WhatCorinneDid) July 11, 2018 at 3:54 am

    That is quite a long list! Babies require so many things! These all look great and if I know anyone having a baby soon, I’ll know what to get them!

    • Kimberly July 11, 2018 at 8:12 am

      I’m glad I could help! Little ones definitely require a lot but it’s so worth it 💕

  • kumamonjeng July 11, 2018 at 5:00 am

    These are great tips and great check list for anyone who is waiting for their new born.

    • Kimberly July 11, 2018 at 8:12 am

      Thank you!!

  • Emma Riley July 11, 2018 at 7:29 am

    Wow, these are a cute baby stuff and I do really like. My niece will have a baby shower by next month and it such a perfect timing to read your post I can now choose a best gift for her baby.

    • Kimberly July 11, 2018 at 8:41 am

      I’m glad I can help! Congrats to your niece ❤️

  • justbusylovinglife July 11, 2018 at 10:49 am

    Yes, these are all a must!!

  • Pooja Kawatra Gupta July 11, 2018 at 11:27 am

    These are some of the essentials for your diaper having bag and remember having them all with me.

  • Nicole July 11, 2018 at 2:43 pm

    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 July 13, 2018 at 10:47 am

      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!

  • C N July 11, 2018 at 3:58 pm

    I think you have procured the perfect list!

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:47 am

      Thank you!

  • Dominic Dalston July 11, 2018 at 8:53 pm

    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.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:46 am

      You’re very welcome! And I’m sure that day will come, and you will hopefully feel that your life is complete in ways you never thought possible!

  • Tara July 12, 2018 at 12:00 am

    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.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:45 am

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

  • Lydia Young-Samson July 12, 2018 at 1:28 am

    This is a great list. It exactly the list of things I wanted for my firstborn, very simple and functional.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:45 am

      Thank you!

  • Blair Villanueva July 12, 2018 at 2:22 am

    Who ever about baby registry is a genius. This is practical way to get the items you need most for the baby. And saves time and $$$

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:45 am

      They definitely are a genius!

  • Garf July 12, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    Thanks for the list of essentials. I am not expecting but I am still hoping to become a mother. This list will greatly help the planning.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:44 am

      Sending you all the mommy dust your way! ❤️

  • Shabby Chic Boho (@terrishutterbug) July 12, 2018 at 3:01 pm

    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.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:44 am

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

  • Tara July 12, 2018 at 4:42 pm

    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.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:44 am

      Cant wait to try the carrier out!

  • TheSuperMomLife July 12, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    You’ve chosen some really great things. I loved creating my registry when I was pregnant!

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:40 am

      Me to! So much fun!

  • ❤ TheMrsTee 👓 (@themrstee) July 12, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    There are times when I see all the amazing new products and tools for babies now I almost want to have another Kiddie just to try them all out – ALMOST 😉

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:39 am

      Haha! I know the feeling! Before we got pregnant with our 2nd, I jumped for joy because I could finally use all the gadgets I was eyeing 😂

  • Jennifer L July 13, 2018 at 2:41 am

    Oh wow great registry ideas. I just gave my friend a diaper genie for her baby shower and she loved it.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:37 am

      Yes it’s so amazing we loved ours with Alyssa! Definitely getting another one

  • Christina Beauchamp July 13, 2018 at 8:33 am

    I’m a mom on the way too! And yes, these are on my lists. 🙂

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:32 am


  • Aduke Schulist July 13, 2018 at 3:24 pm

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

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 6:48 pm

      Yep! That works fine as well!

  • Anna July 13, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    One of my best friends is having a baby soon so will be sending this to her! Thanks for the tips!

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 6:49 pm

      You’re welcome!

  • Yeah Lifestyle July 13, 2018 at 5:32 pm

    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

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:29 pm

      The baby monitor is definitely a must!

  • Becca Wilson July 13, 2018 at 8:45 pm

    These are definitely some amazing picks for a registry. That diaper bag is absolutely gorgeous!

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 10:27 pm

      Thank you! It’s my favorite diaper bag ever!

  • Ruth I. July 13, 2018 at 11:28 pm

    These are really great items! I like how diaper bags are so stylish now.

    • Kimberly July 13, 2018 at 11:28 pm

      Yes makes them easier to wear!

  • NPC July 13, 2018 at 11:48 pm

    These are perfect. I definitely agree, these are must-haves for little ones. What a great list!

  • Tina Hogan Grant (@TinaHoganGrant) July 14, 2018 at 3:11 am

    Nice list for new moms and those looking to buy gifts.
