Here are the things that I put on our baby registry with notes. Use and share as you wish :)
BATH Baby bathtub --Unnecessary if you just sit in the bathtub with your kiddo, which is what I do (and it’s super sweet, I suggest trying it) Hooded towels and washcloths --We own three of each but use just one
Honest Shampoo/Wash (tear-free, hypoallergenic, unscented)
A few bath toys (something fully-sealed is nice so water doesn’t get trapped)
BOTTLES ComoTomo (Supposed to feel like a boob, wide opening = easier cleaning) Dr Brown’s (Popular and worked fine but we preferred the ComoTomo) **Don’t buy more than 1-2 of any brand ahead of time because some babies are picky!
BOUNCER SEAT Babybjorn Bouncer Balance (motor free, moves from baby’s movements, newborn through age 2, washable cover)
--We used this all the time from about 2 months-9 months
CARRIERS Organic Baby K’tan wrap (already comes wrapped, 8-35 lbs, sized to wearer) --I used this from week 1 until my daughter got heavier, but my husband didn’t find it comfortable.
LilleBaby Soft Structured Carrier (newborn-45 lbs, no additional inserts needed)
--LilleBaby is AMAZING, truly a game-changer
CAR SEAT, STROLLER
Britax infant-toddler seat (easiest to install with just seatbelt, no base needed)
--We switched to this model around 9 months and used a friend’s infant seat
Baby Jogger City Select or Uppa Baby Stroller (infant seat snap in, adjustable up to 3 kids, compact fold, multiple seat facing options)
Consider getting some kind of cheaper, easy to fold stroller to keep in the car
CLOTH DIAPERS BestBum covers and inserts
*Even if you don’t register for clothes, people will just buy them for you because they think they’re cute. Same with blankets. **Note that not all brands fit the same! Our chunky monkey was too round for some brands. Something to keep in mind before stocking up. Footed PJs (zippers are easier than snaps) (4)
Sleep gowns (3) Bodysuits + pants/leggings (3-5)
Socks (3-5 pairs)
Velcro swaddle blankets 2 (swaddle me organic) --My kid hated these, but many love them
Aden and Anais dream blanket (or silky soft version, bamboo) --Overpriced but my favorite blanket!
DIAPER BAG (get a backpack style!)
Skip Hop Forma Pack and Go Dyper brand backpack --Free with new orders and amazing. I used it as a work bag for a while!
