The baby gift registry is a good way for family and friends to purchase gifts for your newborn based on a list of necessary items you will need. You can create a baby registry in a department store or opt for an online baby registry, so your family and friends can view your registry and select gifts from that list. Here are some ideas that will help you create a baby registry.
There are some items you absolutely need to have when your baby arrives, like a crib, a car seat, a changing table, bottles and bottle liners, diapers and wipes, clothing and swaddle blankets. You can also consider items that can be reused, like a crib that can be changed to a toddler bed as your child grows. Another item that can be reused is a changing table. Opt for a changing table that is designed to fit on the top shelf of a dresser, and as your child grows, the changing table can be turned into a dresser.
Opting for items that will keep your bundle of joy entertained makes for an ideal inclusion in the baby registry. Consider registering for items like newborn swings, pacifiers, and a playpen with bassinet, a rocking chair, and a baby carrier. A baby swing is a must, as it helps soothe your tiny tot, while a rocking chair helps put your baby to sleep.
Bathing and Toiletries
An important inclusion for your online baby registry, a bathtub will help your baby bathe in joy. To avoid slips and skids, opt for a non-slip pad. Include bath toys like rubber ducks, fish, and other sea creatures for a fun bathing time. As babies have soft and sensitive skin, include organic cotton washcloths and baby towels in the list. Baby toiletries like soap, shampoo, sunscreen, and lotion and diaper rash cream are also a must.
A significant part of your time will be spent on feeding your newborn, so include feeding supplies in your online baby registry to make things easier for you. Consider registering for bottles, bottle nipples, a bottle sterilizer and a bottle rack. If you plan to formula-feed your baby, consider adding formula to the registry. For those who plan to breastfeed, consider registering for a breast pump, breast-milk storage supplies and a breastfeeding pillow.
With these simple ideas, you can create a baby registry that will meet all your requirements.
