Baby Registry Checklist

Congratulations! You’re pregnant. Hopefully you’ve made it out of the first trimester with your dignity intact, and you’re starting to feel better.

So, your registry. Do you need one? Well, most people do. Loved ones and friends are going to buy you stuff, whether you have a shower or not. So it’s best to have a list for them to buy from, instead of having them go rouge (this is also my advice re: wedding registries).

Keep reading to find out what you do and don’t need on your registry. We’ve also compiled all this information into a spreadsheet, so head over there to see our advice in all its tabulated glory. This post will summarize the essential items, but the spreadsheet has the whole kit and caboodle. Please feel free to download the spreadsheet and make it your own!
