8 Baby Registry Mistakes to Avoid

unnamed

This weekend I spent some time with my mother and we stopped for lunch and at a place where there was a baby shower for a future mom. Immediately came to my mind when I was preparing my registry for my own and I remember some many items that were unnecessary…I am going to share the most common baby registry mistakes that we can avoid.

Don’t insist on everything new. If you have friends who are eager to give you some items, take them. Friends, relatives, and online groups often offer clothing they are happy to remove from their closets. Your baby is new but it doesn’t mean that everything has to be brand new.

Don’t go overstock. You see five packs of newborn bibs and you just put a ton on your list, or you registered for something like 20 white newborn onesies.

Don’t just register for infant items. Babies grow fast and you don’t need so many clothes in newborn or 0-3 months sizes. Make sure you get in some pajamas and clothes for everyday use in bigger sizes, also look for items that will grow with your child, for example the high chair that will convert into a booster seat or bottles with the adaptable sippy accessory.

Don’t register for items that you think maybe you might need. Bottle warmers; wipe warmers, and pacifier holders. More than likely you will never use these things. Based on my experience the most useless is the wipe and bottle warmer. It dries out the wipes and you will go through wipes quicker, a plastic wipes container comes in practically every box of wipes that is sometimes I experienced for myself.

Don’t register for expensive items. Hoping someone is going to buy you your crib or the furniture for your child’s room? Purchase the crib, the mattress, the car seat, and stroller in that way you won’t depend on someone purchasing it. You should absolutely register for less pricey essentials: diapers, formula, and the noose FridaBaby Nasal Aspirator you absolutely would need it.

Don’t register for a breast pump. This does not mean that you shouldn’t buy a breast pump. But you probably don’t need to register for one because of the Affordable Breast Act that offer free breast pumps for all mothers.

Don’t register for exclusive colors. I opted for neutral tones a tan high chair, red stroller, and black car seat, you can found out that later on you are having a boy or girl and it would be a relive knowing your would have the most important items.

Don’t get obsessed for the latest and greatest. Don’t neglect the products that may be more essential and practical such bottles, burp clothes, and diapers ( lots of diapers) Keep in mind that moms have been raising babies for millennial without the help of ultraviolet night baby monitors to mention some of them.

The latest and greatest thing that your baby will love more than anything else is not even on your registry, and it’s you.

  3. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I believe I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m looking ahead for your next post, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!
