What about baby grooming stuff (nail clippers, thermometer, etc.), bath time stuff, some learning toys, diaper bag, extra sheets and changing pad covers, baby safety stuff (plug covers, etc)?  A lot of people get gift cards anyway, so if you register at a bricks and mortar store, at least you’ll get gift cards for that place (so make sure it is convenient for you).

@swanks4tw:  I have both an Amazon and Target registry. The reason I did this was because there was certain things I was particular about that I could only find on Amazon.

I am finding that everyone so far as bought off my Target registry versus my Amazon one, and my shower is this Saturday.

My post here might help you http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/baby-registry-not-your-typical-what-do-i-need-post#axzz2thSjwC6P

Lots of people listed out there must have items and what they shouldn’t have included on their registry. I registered for a few swaddles and sleep sacks, little bath, humidifier, video monitor, cups, spoons, bowls, grooming kit, hangers, sheets for both the crib and pack n play, crib mattress, car seat, stroller, bottles/nipples/pacifiers (I added this but I think I prefer to buy them myself), high chair, carrier, sun shade (for the car), thermometer, lotion and baby wash.

Seems most people love buying toys and bibs, so I left those off for that reason because we already have a ton of them both and don’t need anymore.

If you need any additoonal guidance, let me know, and I can help.

A few things I’d add would be a good playmat, excersaucer, jolly jumper, lots of receiving blankets, stroller blankets, different types of bottles in case your baby doesn’t like one brand. My LO lives in his playmat and bouncy seat right now at 3 months. 🙂

More diapers are always good, they go through them so fast and they are $$ ! Diapers, wipes, clothes, bath stuff, diaper cream, baby tylenol, gas drops, teething drops, amber necklace, SLEEP SHEEP or other white noise machine is a must! 

Hopefully some of this will help! Oh, and we didn’t get a bottle warmer at the beginning, but got one about a month ago and wish we got it sooner. We got the first years one for about $20 and it’s worth every penny. 

Good luck! 🙂

Oh yeah – I second the suggestion of a baby monitor and humidifier!

You can use a registry site like babyli.st to register at any site you want to use from one location. It’s super easy!

I recommend mamajamas.com to see what other moms have registered for and used, or buying the Baby Bargains Book for recommendations about what to buy and what not to buy.

Target and Babies R Us have registry lists of “must haves” that help a lot! We are just starting our registry, but aren’t going to complete it until we find out the gender (4 more weeks!).. without those people to help I think I’d be clueless! There are some big things that are obvious that you need, but there are a lot of little things that I knew nothing about!

Suggestions: Boppy, board books, Snuza (if you are wanting something like that). If you plan to nurse/pump you could add bags, extra pump parts.

I love the boppy pillow for feeding and the boppy lounger for lounging. We also love the Aden and Anais muslin swaddle blankets. I would also suggest onesies that zip and dont button they are so much faster when you get getting used to diaper changes. I would also suggest velcro swaddle outfits and halo sleep sacks. We got several swaddlers and as it turns out our baby likes his arms out and we only have one sleep sack. 

My biggest advice is to register for different types of items, bottles, pacifiers, swaddles, outfits, etc. You never know what your baby may like!

What about stuff for older babies and toddlers?  Childproofing items, toddler bowls/utensils, sippy cups?

People tend way more to buy you stuff like clothes, blankets, wash cloths and bath toys than the stuff you already have, so you will most likely get what you don’t have in any event!
