With a baby on the way, you may feel like there are a thousand to-dos. But one of the most important? Putting together your baby registry. Friends and family members will be eager to pick out presents for you and baby, so you may as well direct them to a list of items you actually want and need (and trust us, you’re going to need a fair amount). But with so many baby essentials to pick out, it’s hard to know where to begin. Which is why we’ve compiled the ultimate baby registry checklist, so you don’t forget a thing.
WHAT IS A BABY REGISTRY?
A baby registry is a list of baby products from a retail store that you’d like to stock up on in preparation for baby’s arrival. Anything you’d like can be included on your baby registry checklist, from smaller items like onesies and thermometers to big-ticket items like cribs and strollers. Just like a wedding registry, you can then share your baby registry with family, friends and baby shower guests eager to present gifts to the parents-to-be. It’s up to you how many stores you create registries with—or you can opt for a universal baby registry that pulls products from various stories into one master list.
WHEN TO REGISTER FOR BABY?
While you can create a baby registry at any time, most moms-to-be start going through their baby registry checklist when they’re about 12 weeks along. That may seem early, but building a baby registry can take some work—infant care tends to call for a fair amount of stuff.
If you’re waiting to find out baby’s sex, you might want to hold off on creating your baby registry until you hear the news (which usually happens by 20 weeks), since it could influence which designs and color choices you go with. But don’t wait too much longer—you want to give yourself plenty of time to research the gear you’ll need and decide which items you’re going to count as baby registry essentials. (Plus, your guests will need some time to browse through your registry and pick out the perfect gift!)
