Earlier this week on my instastories I asked what you guys wanted to hear more about. This request was one I thought would go better as a blog – so I could refer back to it since this question comes up a lot.
Also…. for me if we ever decide to have another baby because after a couple years you TOTALLY forget.

Baby registries are overwhelming. First of all, EVERYONE has them. My favorite place to shop is amazon because I hate to leave my home haha so I suggest the Amazon Baby Registry.
Why? They have literally everything you need, items purchased from your registry can be shipped straight to you, AND you get a freebie box once you complete a few steps.
Next – what do you REALLY need on your registry?
Well, lets start with the basics. The only things a baby really needs:
This all depends on your preferences. I am cloth diapering and breastfeeding viv. For LB I was using disposable diapers and breastfeeding but also working full time so I did need some additional feeding supplies.
For moms using disposable diapers (these are the brands I prefer):
- Diapers (I say 3 of each size. I didn’t have a brand preference – it was all the same to me)
- Rash Cream
- Diaper Bag
For moms using Cloth diapers – I have a list of supplies I use in my Amazon Storefront
- First Aid Kit
- Bath Tub
- Newborn Sleeper
- Baby Monitor
- Crib bedding (I like just using a sheet)
- Swaddle blankets/blankets
I suggest just getting a furniture set if you need it all. Ends up saving you money. For Viv, we ordered from Wayfair and I regret it.
honestly onesies and sleepers are all you NEED. Don’t even register for clothes – people will buy so much of that. I would only register for outerwear if you’ll have a baby in the winter.
Some of these things are ABSOLUTELY necessary. Some just make life a little easier, but this is a good start for any baby registry!
What are your must have items?
