I have to admit it; one of my favorite things about pregnancy is all the great baby products on the market. They literally have a product for anything and everything pregnancy related.
And another great thing about being pregnant is getting to register for all these great items you had no clue you needed!
The Bump is the place to go to get started with registries. Want multiple registries (we’ve all done it!), you can manage them all from their website .
Need a checklist to go with, they’ve got it with their Registry 101.
Other great places to register are Target and Babies R Us.
The Pampers Website has a great list of dos and don’ts when it comes to registering:
"Do feel free to tell the host of your shower where you are registered so she can spread the word.
It’s totally acceptable to have registry websites listed on your invitation.
Don’t feel pressured to divulge details you’d planned to keep secret, like the baby’s name, just because people insist on monogramming a blanket. Tell them that it’s important to you to keep things a surprise.
Do register for the basics, from newborn diapers to pacifiers to an infant bathtub. You’ll need these essentials and will wind up buying them anyway.
Don’t get sucked into registering for cute toys or outfits that your baby won’t be able to use until he or she is a year old. You have plenty of time to drop hints to friends and family at holiday and birthday time.
Do register at more than one store, especially if you have family members buying you gifts from all over the country.
Don’t expect everyone to buy your gifts online. While it’s convenient for you, Aunt Suzy may still not feel comfortable on the computer. Make sure one of the places you register has an actual store with your registry on file.
Do ask the stores you’re registering with if they offer a one-time discount for closing out your registry (basically buying everything you didn’t get at your shower).
Don’t get upset if guests don’t buy from your registry. Yes, that pink velour baby tracksuit is heinous (especially because you’re having a boy), but suck it up and smile."
Hopefully these tips and websites will help make registering easier for you, because believe it or not, it can get hectic picking out strollers and baby bottles.
