List Rules New moms! Vote for the most essential, can't-live-without things you should register for
Congratulations! You're having a baby! There are so many things to prepare for: the birth plan, the nursery, college! Well, before you get ahead of yourself, there are a couple other items you (or some very generous friends and family) need to pick up first. That's why we've put together this ultimate baby registry checklist.
There are a lot of things you're going to need. (Seriously, it's a lot!) That's why online baby registries are so helpful! Friends and family will love being able to help you out as you move into the world of parenting. There are a few baby registry essentials (think: diapers, bottles, and onesies), which is why we've put together this baby registry checklist.
When baby comes, you're not going to have time to rush out and buy must-haves like a stroller, a rocking chair, bibs, and cute clothing. Do you have a bedside co-sleeper? Do you even know what that is? You'll want to do your research on exact brands and items that you add to the list. And definitely make sure you have everything one to two weeks before your due date - that way you have everything ready even if you pop a little sooner!
You've already got baby on the mind, so it's time to check out our ultimate baby registry list. Vote up the baby registry must-haves you can't live without.
