It doesn’t sound like too much at all. Especially when a lot of baby stuff is lower priced (the small stuff, I mean).

When I attend a baby shower, I usually pick a whole ton of that stuff, so 4 pages would go quickly, IMO.

Another thought- I usually find brides/moms to be who have to be told to add more to their registries to be the LEAST gift grabby people ๐Ÿ™‚

I had this same question and I have about the same number of items on my Amazon registry as well. I think we’re good! People aren’t going to feel obligated to buy more just because there’s a lot of options.

I think you should just put on there whatever you truly need and want (and would buy yourself).  I think the problem is just finding random crap to put on there to make it larger.  Don’t do that.  I don’t judge the length but sometimes I’ll laugh when people put silly items on there.  Sorry, I will never ever buy anyone a wipes warmer.

I definitely think you should keep all the items. I actually get annoyed when I go to buy from a registry and there are hardly any choices – especially if you’re one of the last people to buy.  I’d much rather see a long list that gives me options than a sparse one. I don’t thik it is rude at all. And no one in my friend circle would either.

I have to agree with what it seems most are saying. Choices are great. And also, since you’re having several places (I know Amazon is your main one though) not everyone has those places local to them. I know here, we don’t have a Babies R Us for example, but many friends and relatives live in a large city not all that far from here that has severl and always use that store. While yes we could use the website and order, I’m one who likes to look at things (if possible) and would choose say Target or Babies R Us just because we don’t have one (that was my opinion about choices ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) 

As for pages on Amazon. I LOVE Amazon. I have lists and wishlists for everything. The more you have, the more options people have, and there are some who may say “Hey, I want to get this and this and this). As for larger items, sometimse groups of people go in together and get things (such as carseats, cribs, pack n plays, etc). 

So  I don’t think its rude to have a large list of items. And after all, most people aren’t going to know exactly how many people or how large of a family you have anyway (just because say you have a shower that has 20 people, doesn’t mean you won’t have one at work, DH’s work won’t have one for you [its happened before], one side of the family has one, the other side of the family has one, friends have one, and the list goes on and on and on. To me, the main thing is make sure there is a good variety of prices everything from things that are $1 to over $100, that way no one is out of their price range or feels cheap. They have a variety and choices.
