Trying to figure out what you should add to your baby registry? Looking for top baby registry must haves? I’m here to help & am sharing the baby registry must haves I used and genuinely loved! They have made my life so much easier.
Here is a list of the top registry must haves that should be added to your registry. The best time of the year other than Christmas, right? Preparing for your little one! If you’re anything like me you get easily overwhelmed when you are trying to make sure that you have everything you think you need to prepare for your little one’s arrival. I’m preparing for baby #2 and there is so many new items since Ive had my first born (and it’a only been 3 years)! I thought I would share some of the items I’m I have added to my registry or that have been recommended to me!
Baby Registry Must Haves I Used and Loved
A stroller and carseat travel system is the most convenient item you can have on your registry. The one in the picture is Chicco Bravo Travel System if I didn’t already have a stroller, I would go with this travel system. You can also buy strollers and carseats separate from each other. The stroller I own is the Baby Jogger City Select and I absolutely love it, it also has a couple of different carseats that can be attached to it.
I also tried out the Tango Stroller Travel System and reviewed it in this post
I didn’t own this with Alyssa (my first) but I have heard so many great things about the Dockatot.
***Update: We LOVED it with out second and plan to use it with our third!
Trust me you’ll want something to keep those stinky diapers from smelling up the house! I owned this diaper genie with Alyssa, it was great!
You’re going to want to choose the perfect bottles for you and your little one. When I had Alyssa I used the Avent bottles and absolutely loved them. This time I plan to breastfeed longer than I did with Alyssa but I will still introduce bottles. This time I will be trying the comotomo bottles and the Nuk Simply Natural bottles. I’ve heard great things about all of them.
So many people rave about the Halo Bassinet. It’s perfect for the side of the bed the first few months, before you transition your little one into a crib.
Alyssa was not a fan of baby swaddles, so I am hoping baby girl #2 will love them because they can be so convenient for sleeping and keeping them warm.
I have a few favorites for baby bags, I owned quite a few with Alyssa! My Ultimate Top 3 diaper bag is the Skip Hop Diaper Bag I will have to rebuy it this time because hubby ruined the one I had with Alyssa! It is so spacious and can fit so much, I love it! They have it in a few colors: Pink, Beige, and Smoke.
Here is a post all about my fave diaper bag + what I pack in it!
Perfect Baby Essentials to wrap your little ones in are muslin swaddle blankets.
Skip Hop Sound Machine
Alyssa is 2.5 years old and a sound machine has been a must since day one. I love Skip Hop, and I will be purchasing this skip hop sound machine this time around.
Baby sleepers to keep the babies comfortable, and the parents life easier. If you can get zipper sleepers, I highly recommend them! Here is a similar pair of sleepers to the one in the pictures.
Alyssa didn’t own a wubbanub but ill be trying it with the princess this time around. Alyssa always loved, and still loves her MAM Orthodontic Pacifiers (I will also be purchasing these for baby #2)
Definitely a must have item.
The nose frida was a serious life savor! After you get used to using it that is.
I’ve heard so many great things about the Tula Baby Carrier as well as the LILLEbaby carriers. I used the Ergo Baby Carrier with my first and loved that one! I plan on trying a few.
I hope this list of the best baby registry must haves that I used and loved has helped you. If you feel I left anything out that I must have for our little princess, please let me know down below in the comments!
My daughter is having a baby soon. These choices will help me to buy her a gift.
Glad I could help! Congratulations to her 💕❤️
There are definitely some amazing things available for babies these days! This is a great list of things to include on your registry.
What a great list! I have 3 kids and the baby swaddles definitely came in handy!
They can be pretty helpful!
We LOVE our Tula baby carriers! It’s important to find one that fits your body. I thought I’d love the Lillebaby, but it was SO uncomfortable for me.
I can’t wait to try the Tula one out! Hopefully it works great for me and baby!
These are sure must haves for the newborn. I have kept my own list too when I gave birth to my kids. But, good thing, you have baby monitors available these days.
Yes baby monitors are amazing!
That is quite a long list! Babies require so many things! These all look great and if I know anyone having a baby soon, I’ll know what to get them!
I’m glad I could help! Little ones definitely require a lot but it’s so worth it 💕
These are great tips and great check list for anyone who is waiting for their new born.
Wow, these are a cute baby stuff and I do really like. My niece will have a baby shower by next month and it such a perfect timing to read your post I can now choose a best gift for her baby.
I’m glad I can help! Congrats to your niece ❤️
Yes, these are all a must!!
These are some of the essentials for your diaper having bag and remember having them all with me.
I remember when we were doing the baby registry for my son, it was so fun! The stroller system, bassinet, and bottles are definitely a must have! Although I would recommend registering for one of each type of bottle. My son was really picky and we havd to go through every brand until we found one he would take to!
That is so true! Babies can definitely be picking, I didn’t even think of that because Alyssa wasn’t very selective she took any brand!
I think you have procured the perfect list!
You know, I’m a single man, middle aged, a bit set in my ways. Some days I look at parents and I think, ‘I’m glad I’ve been spared all that trouble.’ But reading your post brings out strong nest making instincts in me and reminds me that the only reason I’m doing anything is so that one day, when the right lady comes along, if I’m very lucky maybe I will be blessed with children myself. So, thank you for this blog post. It’s got me thinking.
You’re very welcome! And I’m sure that day will come, and you will hopefully feel that your life is complete in ways you never thought possible!
Looks like you have a pretty complete list here. I loved my baby carrier, to have my hands free and still snuggle up with my babies.
It will be useful with a newborn and toddler! I can’t wait!
This is a great list. It exactly the list of things I wanted for my firstborn, very simple and functional.
Who ever about baby registry is a genius. This is practical way to get the items you need most for the baby. And saves time and $$$
They definitely are a genius!
Thanks for the list of essentials. I am not expecting but I am still hoping to become a mother. This list will greatly help the planning.
Sending you all the mommy dust your way! ❤️
These are all so useful to parents. I always bought #1, #5 and #7 when I found out I was expecting because I knew I’d use them and needed them. I should have put them on a baby registry.
Thank you! I can’t wait to use them!
This is a great list of items for your Baby Registry. For me the item I used the most was the baby carrier, I was able to keep my baby close to my heart and have my hands free.
Cant wait to try the carrier out!
You’ve chosen some really great things. I loved creating my registry when I was pregnant!
Me to! So much fun!
There are times when I see all the amazing new products and tools for babies now I almost want to have another Kiddie just to try them all out – ALMOST 😉
Haha! I know the feeling! Before we got pregnant with our 2nd, I jumped for joy because I could finally use all the gadgets I was eyeing 😂
Oh wow great registry ideas. I just gave my friend a diaper genie for her baby shower and she loved it.
Yes it’s so amazing we loved ours with Alyssa! Definitely getting another one
I’m a mom on the way too! And yes, these are on my lists. 🙂
Honestly, I think diaper pails are so overrated (I’m still changing diapers too!).. A trash can with a lid is just fine!
Yep! That works fine as well!
One of my best friends is having a baby soon so will be sending this to her! Thanks for the tips!
These suggestions are totally spot on …coming from a mum of two. For us the baby monitor was so important especially when our children slept upstairs and we were downstairs
The baby monitor is definitely a must!
These are definitely some amazing picks for a registry. That diaper bag is absolutely gorgeous!
Thank you! It’s my favorite diaper bag ever!
These are really great items! I like how diaper bags are so stylish now.
Yes makes them easier to wear!
These are perfect. I definitely agree, these are must-haves for little ones. What a great list!
Nice list for new moms and those looking to buy gifts.
