Not Sure What to Put on Your Baby Registry? We Suggest These 75 Items
As if being pregnant weren’t stressful enough (oh, hello, 6 p.m. heartburn), now you’ve got to assemble a baby registry? Luckily, we’ve done the work for you. Here, 75 items every new mom-to-be should have on her list.
Itty-bitty and oh-so-adorable
You’ll want at least ten of each size: newborn, 0 to 3 months and 3 to 6 months.
Carter’s onesies ($16 for 4)
You’ll want at least six pairs in 0 to 6 months and 6 to 12 months.
Gerber socks ($10 for 8)
Also perfect for on-the-fly diaper changes.
Aden + Anais swaddles ($35 for 4)
Ditto the bunting. Buy based on your baby’s age when it gets cold.
7 A.M. Enfant snowsuit ($40)
However brief it may be
Bonus if you find one that easily converts into a toddler bed.
Oeuf crib ($970)
This one is breathable, non-toxic and certified organic.
Accidents happen. It’s worth investing in three four.
Brooklittles sheets ($52 for 2)
Whatever you buy, the key word is waterproof.
Better than a lullaby? Almost.
Petit Pehr mobile ($85)
Ideally one with pristine picture quality and a 360-degree view so you can keep tabs at all times.
Eufy baby monitor ($160)
“Because swaddling is super easy," said no parent ever.
Most parents stop swaddling around 4 months, and this is a nice next step. (Get a few in various sizes from small to large.)
Woolino sleep sack ($100)
The perfect gift from your mother (or mother-in-law).
Carter’s by DaVinci glider ($429)
You’ll want one that wheels right up to your bed.
Graco bassinet ($160)
Scrub-a-dub-dub, newborn baby in the tub
An option that’s safe—and makes for an easy transition to the toddler stage.
Fisher-Price bathtub ($30)
FYI, you’ll need more than one.
Clevamama bath towel ($22)
A Baby Hairbrush
Good to have on hand—even if your newborn has little (to no) hair for a while.
Baby Nail Clipper
One that comes with a magnifier is best.
Whoa, you need how many diapers?
Yeah, you’re going to want to buy these in bulk whenever you can.
Hello Bello diapers ($24 for 96)
Mini Diaper Trash Bags
Tuck these into your diaper bag for on-the-go changes.
Diaper trash bags ($15)
Diaper Changing Pad
Plastic-covered, so all it needs is a quick wipe versus a machine wash.
Keekaroo changing pad ($130)
Changing Pad Liners
OK, these you’ll have to machine wash.
Boppy liners ($13 for 3)
So you’re armed and ready at 2 a.m.
Aim to have at least six bottles (with both slow- and medium-flow nipples) on hand.
Medela bottles ($12 for 3)
Baby on the go!
You have a zillion choices, but this stroller is durable, and if you invest in the Vista model, it can easily accommodate two. (No pressure!)
UPPABaby stroller ($970)
It’s not all crying and sleeping
A Play Mat
Tummy time is the best time.
Lovevery mat ($140)
