Baby Registry List

When you're a first time mom and the time comes for you to register, it can be completely overwhelming. I always say that baby stuff is like learning to speak a second language. There's so many items and you pretty much have no clue what any of them are. I have a lot of friends who are having babies and I get asked frequently what they need to register for. I finally decided to just make a new note in my phone titled 'Baby Stuff' and I jotted down every single item I could think of that you need for a baby. So whenever a friend asks me, I just email it to her. Everyone has said that my list is so helpful so today I thought I'd share my list with you. These are particular items/brands that I love and recommend. I'll also add that I was much more minimalistic as a second time mom, mostly with all of the gear, but I'm glad I had all of it just in case I needed it.

-Rock N Play
-Swing or Mamaroo
-Activity Mat
-Pack and Play
-Car Seat
-Fisher Price Sit Me Up Floor Seat
-Medela Pump In Style
-Extra Pump Parts: Valves, Membranes, Breast Shields, Tubes
-Freezer Storage Bags
-Medela Breastmilk Storage Solution
-Breast Pads
-Pumping Bra
-Breastfeeding Pillow

*I never used the breastfeeding pillow but some women love it. There are other pump accessories but the ones above are all I use.

-Munchkin Inflatable Duck Tub (for when they sit up on their own)
-Bath Toys
-Spout Cover
-Munchkin Cup Shampoo Rinser
-Shampoo/Body Wash/Lotion

*I think they angelcare baby bath support tub is the best. I use Noodle and Boo Shampoo, Body Wash and Lotion. It smells so good! I never used the duck tub with Bennett but loved it with Campbell.

My Personal Favorite Items
-Aden + Anais: dream blanket, swaddles, bibs, sleeping bags and easy swaddle

-Freshly Picked Moccs
-UPPAbaby Mesa Car Seat + Cruz or Vista Stroller (I have both)
-4Moms Pack and Play (it's the best and easiest to set up)
-Boon Flair High Chair (SO easy to clean)
Again these are just my favorites and what I've used with both of my boys. These items have served me well. Like I said previously, I was much more minimalistic with the gear with Bennett simply because I didn't want all of that stuff in my house!! It worked out just fine. Hopefully I'm not forgetting anything but if I did let me know so I can edit to add it.
Also curious to know what some of your favorite baby items are? Leave them in the comments!!


  1. Thank you so much for this post! I've been following a while but decided to come out of lurkdom! :) I'm about to have my first in a few weeks and wondered how many pjs and onesies you typically had for the beginning and as they grew? Love your blog!

    1. Hey girl! Congratulations!! I always have 10 pairs of pajamas for both of my boys. It's just a good number for me and keeps me from feeling like I'm doing laundry all the time. I never did onesies so can't help you in that department--sorry!! Probably the same amount though (10)? 💕💕 Hope you're feeling good during your last few weeks of pregnancy!
