As a new parent, you probably feel overwhelmed with all of the options and don’t even know where to start! You want to be prepared for everything to come with your new baby. This list of baby registry items has been rounded up and suggested by actual moms rather than brands trying to get their name out there. By the end of this blog, you will feel confident, prepared, and have a baby registry list with items you will actually use.
An Infant Car Seat –
It’s no surprise that you need a car seat. You can’t even take baby home from the hospital without one! The Graco Snugride 35 Infant Car Seat is among one of the most recommended by moms. One of its benefits is its ultra light weight which makes carrying easier than ever before especially as your baby puts on the pounds.
An Automated Rock n Play-
Personally, my babies slept in their Rock n Plays for a solid 4 months after coming home from the hospital. It is convenient to move around the house so they can sleep peacefully while you tend to other things that need to get done. It comes with a comfy incline and head support. The recommended brand for this one is the Fisher-Price Auto Deluxe Rock n Play.
When it comes to onesies, you have three options: zipper, button, and pull over. Babies need to be changed a lot including their diapers round the clock. Don’t make it harder than it needs to be. Moms have been recommending zipper onesies in every Facebook post asking for must have baby items. The tried and true brands are Gerber and Carter’s.
A Baby Swing-
Whether you go traditional or high tech on your baby swing, you must include a baby swing. My babies LOVED theirs. It was truly a life saver when nothing else soothed them. If you choose the high tech route, moms are raving about the 4moms MamaRoo baby swing. It has 5 unique motions and speeds which is sure to soothe your baby.
While this is a basic item, it is one you will wish you had more of. The Muslin baby swaddles come HIGHLY recommended. Not only are these adorable and perfect for your newborn pictures, they will keep baby snug and warm. Speaking of newborn pictures, here is some inspiration for you: Rhett’s Lifestyle Newborn Session
