I would disagree and say no diapers. Some parents have a preference for one kind of diaper over another plus you can never tell whats the best size to get since some babies speed through certain sizes. I would get a gift card. You can never go wrong with that.

I’d stick to the registry, no matter what the ratings are, because those are things that she needs. And most likely, she’ll end up buying a lot of what she doesn’t get.

One thing that I like to do is put together a little emergency kit for mama and baby: diaper cream, alcohol swabs, generic baby tylenol, saline spray, thermometer, nipple cream, breast pads, etc. Those aren’t glamorous to give, but those are things that she will use and need.
