Expecting a baby? Congratulations! As you plan for your bundle of joy, registering for all those sweet little baby items can be one of the most exciting experiences of pregnancy. However, building a baby registry can also feel overwhelming!
So, let us help. We’ve created this baby registry checklist and guide to make registering for your baby a breeze.
In short.... YES! The idea of making a list of the gifts you would like to receive may sound greedy or tacky, but actually it can be a huge favour to those who wish to buy you gifts!
People LOVE babies. They want to buy you stuff, and creating a registry is a great way to point your friends and family in the right direction. It helps out the people who truly want to get you something you'll love (or who simply don’t have a clue what to buy you!).
A registry also prevents you getting 10 of the same thing, as your friends can reserve an item that they are planning to buy for you.
Now that we’ve got that out the way, let’s get into it!
These days an online baby registry is the way to go. You can register for free and there's no pressure to buy anything, plus friends and family can easily contribute to your registry without having to visit a physical store. So... which online baby registry is the best? Our top pick is Babylist.
Babylist is an online baby registry that lets you put together a baby shower gift wish list for all your friends and family that want to buy you something. Much like Pinterest, you can add products from literally anywhere on the web.
Head to babylist.com and click on “Start Your Babylist Registry” to get started. Once you’ve registered, it’s time for the fun part! You can start adding your wish list of baby items from literally ANY store… from prams and strollers to baby clothes and nursery decor.
Adding items to your Babylist registry is easy! There are 3 ways to do it:
Your registry will have a unique link that you can share with your friends and family (or have it added to your shower invitations). You can change the link in your settings (under Registry Info) if you like.
Here's a sample Babylist registry to give you an idea of how it looks once it's all set up.
Don’t forget to add your full mailing address for friends who are far away.
Having a baby registry organised with items from your favourite shops can help you remain focused on the crucial points of staying well and having a healthy pregnancy. Your Babylist registry not only makes buying baby gifts easier; it also allows your family and friends to get involved and share in the joys of parenthood while your little bundle takes over your world.
