The Top 5 Things On My Baby Registry

This isn’t my first rodeo so I know exactly what I want for this baby. I have seen some new things since I last had a child but I’m trying to be extremely reasonable this time.

1. Travel System

I had one for each of my children and they are a lifesaver! You will outgrow the car seat before the stroller but it’s worth it. I’ve always had a Graco one but this time I want to try a different brand as I’ve heard so many great things about the Chicco brand.


2.    Pack n’ Play


Yes, yes, and yes!!! This is a MUST. When a guest would come over I would have my baby in the Pack n’ Play. So they wouldn’t have to come in the room to visit with her. The older my kids got they were able to use it as a playpen. The best part about it is it’s transportable.


My girls enjoyed their swing! It was great but I will warn you it doesn’t last long. By 4 months you can give it up but it’s nice to have. After a bottle, I could sit them in their swing and off to sleepy town they’d go. I was able to get so much done. (For the first few weeks, sleep while they sleep but once you’re able to move around…do it!)

4. Bottles



Forgive me now, but yes, I’m one of those moms that’s particular about her baby’s bottle. With my last child, I used Tommee Tippie and that what I’m planning to use again. I have used Dr. Brown’s in the past but they are a headache to clean!


5. Pampers Swaddlers


I am also a Pampers snob when they are first born. The hospital typically gives those out when the baby is first born and I fell in love. After 6 months, I’m using any brand  I choose but when they are tiny Pampers is my only choice.


What are your must-haves for a new baby?


Bonus Items: I'm considering getting some of these things for my baby!


1. Bookbag Diaper Bag

I'm really digging this trend. I can see how easy it would be for mom or dad to use it. The first one was found on Amazon for under $40 while the other is a brand favorite SkipHop at Target. I don't think I will be taking the plunge and spending $100 on a diaper bag.
