When I started registering for Jude’s baby shower, my first reaction was excitement. Making a list of all the fun baby stuff! Who wouldn’t enjoy doing that? I was pumped. As I started the process, the excitement soon turned into stress, and I found myself not enjoying it anymore. I had no idea how many baby products and brands were out there and all the OPINIONS! All I wanted was to get everything I needed to make sure our first few months were covered. I was searching high and low for a simple and easy list, but couldn’t find any kind of guide to make the process of registering easier. For that reason, I created my own “Baby Registry Guide” to help new moms make registering SIMPLE and EASY! 

What do you NEED? 

There are a lot of people out there that will tell you there are certain products that you have to have that are not necessarily NEEDS. My list is promised to be super simple and straightforward on what you really NEED for those first few months of your baby’s life. The last thing you need is a bunch of baby products you never use! I have broken it up into categories: sleep, nursery, eat, travel, and hygiene/health.

That’s it! This is a simple registry list of things that you need for your baby’s first few months of life. Many of these things you will be using throughout the whole first year of your baby’s life. I hope you find this list helpful and takes a little bit of weight off your shoulders when registering for your upcoming baby shower. 

This week I am going to be uploading this exact registry list to my website for free download, but with a little zing. I will have another category of “Extras” that are not needs but other products that I love and would register for again or things I wished I would have registered for and then also giving you specific brand names of most all the items on the list. That way you know exactly what to register for and don’t have to read a million reviews online to figure it out which brand is best! I have literally done all the hard work for you! Stay tuned! My detailed baby registry list will be up for download this Wednesday!
