I don’t have many -if any- friends that are pregnant or have babies.
So my question is what is the norm for baby registries?
Is it OK to have more than one registry?
For our wedding we had a online one and a brick & mortar one.
I would like to do something similar when we have a baby IF someone throws us a shower.
So what say you?
Is it OK to have a online baby registry along with a brick & mortar one?

I say go for it.
Having 2 options makes it easier for the people who want to buy.

My friend and sister both recently had babies. My sister was only registered at one store, but my friend was registered at two. They both chose stores that had the registries available in the store and online (Target, Babies R Us, Buy Buy Baby, and Baby Depot at Burlington Coat Factory are popular ones)

It’s okay to have more than one registry. I did since different things were cheaper at different places, and the big box stores don’t carry most cloth diapers, which I wanted to register for.

Most of my family and friends have registered at 2-3 places for their baby registries. (Typically Target, Babies R Us, and maybe 1 other seems the standard around here.)

Most of my family and friends registered at Babies R Us and Target. I think registries are really helpful with baby showers since different families can want really different supplies, so I don’t think having multiple stores is excessive. I’ve seen Amazon.com too, which can be easy for folks with their free ship…and certain things can be much chepaer there.

I would think 2-3, like wedding registries, would be standard. Places like Target, Babies R Us, and maybe Pottery Barn Kids, or something like that.

I have 3. Every store doesn’t have all I want (cloth diapers) and some stores are cheaper.

I think then we will do two when it comes our time. 😉
We’re probably going to use MyRegistry which is a universal online registry much like Amazon. I used them for our wedding and loved them.
The other brick & mortar would probably be Babies R Us or Target depending on what they have.

Yep, Im registered at 3 places. Most of my crew wouldnt do an online only one, so we did Target, Babies R Us, and Buy Buy Baby. We have all sorts of specialty shops here in NYC, but only a handful of my guests actually live here so we shyed (is that even the right spelling?) away from those

We have 3 registries. Babies R Us and Target, and an online registry for cloth diapers.
At first I thought it might be better to get rid of Target, but already it’s been helpful for an older guest who can’t make it all the way to Babies R Us, and doesn’t do internet.

We did Target and Babies R Us and even duplicated some things both places in case people only looked at one. I tried to pick items that were available online and in the stores (Target is horrible about mostly having things only available online).
Plus people might buy the same items from your elsewhere. I know a few things we registered for can be found cheaper on Amazon but I just wanted to keep everything together (I’m using our registry as a list of things we still need, so it’s got some things I wouldn’t expect anyone to buy).

We did target and babies r us also. Its good to give people options. I say go for it.
