Today I was reminded that I needed to create a registry for our upcoming son’s arrival. We have just over 3 months, hopefully. Unless he comes early, which would create more stress. The question was, where to begin??
There seems to be so many gadgets and stuff that a baby needs that I feel absolutely overwhelmed. I don’t want to be stuck needing something that I “can’t live without”, but on the other hand, I really don’t want to register and receive a bunch of baby things I’ll never use! How does something so small need sooooo much stuff?
As a first-time mom, how do you even know what your baby will like? I’ve heard babies can be picky about bouncy-chairs, diapers, baby carriers, bath soaps, bottle nipple shapes, even warm or “regular” temperature wipes! Yikes! Is it really a trial-by-fire? Figure out what works and what doesn’t as you go?
I know there are some Top 10 List Of Can’t-Live-Without Baby Items, but how can I trust people to compile a list of things I can’t live without, when I don’t even know them? I don’t know. That may be just my opinion. Did the Top 10 Lists work for you?
So that’s the purpose of this post. I want to ask you, my friends and family, for help. What are the top Can’t-Live-Without items you recommend? (And please, help a girl out and share the brand names too!)
P.S. Anyone read this book? I’m considering putting it as my first item on my registry 😉
