Baby Registry Basics
Do you really need 37 pages of gear on your baby registry? Heavens no! Good news: we’ve broken down the must-haves into 10 simple categories. This is the easy way. So take a breath, let’s go…
After 11 years of covering baby gear, the gear listed in the categories above are undoubtedly the essentials for a new baby, folks. Yes, you can always add more, but it’s nice to start with a simple baby registry list with the basics and necessities, and go from there.
For a cheatsheet version of these items, check out this super summarized version of the Ultimate Baby Registry Checklist. It includes everything from car seats, strollers, baby carriers, baby clothes, infant tubs and everything in between, broken out by price category. Whether you are looking for budget friendly baby gear or higher end stuff, we’ve got it all covered.
For baby registry (or for your baby shower), we recommend BabyList (universal baby registry), Buy Buy Baby, and Amazon Baby registry (especially for Prime members).
