Our baby registry

We spent almost three hours in Buy Buy Baby on Sunday afternoon. My head is still spinning from all of the excitement and decisions we had to make. This was not like registering for my bridal shower. That was easy. Even though the store provided a registry checklist as a guide, I felt like I was guessing. I have no idea if my baby will want or need half the stuff I picked out (i.e. play pen, bouncy seat, exer-saucer, slings & swing). And if there isn’t already, there should be an accelerated college course on car seats and strollers.  There were literally 100 different models to choose from. Thank goodness my husband printed out info from Consumer Reports beforehand. It would have been impossible to make a selection otherwise. We probably would have registered for a more expensive and not necessarily safer “travel system”, too.

Are there any items that were a personal favorite or absolute must when you had your baby?

    You totally have to get the swing! Parker practically lived in it and saved my sanity.

    The swing!?! I’ve heard so many moms say that they loved their swing, but I’m worried about it taking up too much room. I guess I have to get over that though if it will keep the baby content.

    I would never have been able to shower if it weren’t for the swing. It’s definately a must have!

    OK!! OK!! I’ll register for a swing! The peer pressure is too much : )
