Setting up a registry for your first born can be quite overwhelming. I thought it wouldn't be too bad since I have 3 nephews and a niece all under 2 whom I've spent a lot of time with, but boy was I wrong! Maybe it was my pregnancy brain, but half of the item names I couldn't even think of, only what it looked like or what the function was. It was overwhelming, so I asked you -my amazing loyal followers- for your new mom registry must-haves and I got THE BEST recommendations- THANK YOU!!! Keep reading to see everything that made the cut and what new moms had to say about each item!
OXO WIPES DISPENSER
"Keeps wipes moist, weighted insert so you get only one wipe at a time, and one handed open/close. It was one of the only things I didn't find on a list and felt proud to ‘discover'!"
KEEKARO PEANUT CHANGER
"It's a medical grade silicon changing pad so it needs no fabric cover which means no constant washing with accidents, you just wipe it down with cleaner!"
"I could pull it right up to the bed at night for easy feeding and it relaxed me to be able to see him at first."
My sister and sister-in-law both highly recommended the Halo bassinet and said the height made it easy to pick the baby up during late night feedings!
MY BREST FRIEND
"If you breast feeding the My Breast Friend nursing pillow is a game changer. It has a belt with back support and more like a pillow shelf.
"It’s so good for bottle and/or breast feeding and great for tummy time!"
ERGO 360 CARRIER WITH NEWBORN INSERT
"I feel like it was the only way I got stuff done most days!"
"This bath seat was great bc I would wash her on the kitchen counter when she was a newbie and then in the tub when she got bigger!"
NOSE FRIDA WITH FILTERS
This was definitely the most highly recommended item! It sounds disgusting, but according to all of the new moms that weighed in on my registry post, it's an absolute must-have!
SWADDLES WITH VELCRO
"Omg life saver because neither (my husband) nor I would swaddle with a blanket to save our lives. And they love to be swaddled when they’re fresh!"
"They make it easy for middle of the night diaper changes."
DOCK A TOT
"(My child) is an active sleeper and when she was a baby this was a lifesaver!"
BABY BJORN BOUNCER
"It has a modern look and it folds up flat and easily to tuck out of the way."
MORE RECOMMENDED PRODUCTS:
If you're wondering where to register, I'd recommend Amazon! You can register for items from any site on the web and it's amazing to have everything in one place plus many items with prime shipping! I've also heard that Baby List is similar, but haven't checked that one out. If you have, I'd love to hear more about your experience in the comments! Again, thank you SO MUCH to all of the mommas out there who helped me curate a registry with products I will be using all of the time when baby Jones arrives!
Have a great day, y'all!
