Baby is on the way, so now is the time to put together your wish list!  Shopping for a new baby can sometimes be overwhelming, so use our convenient registry guide to help you sort through the mountains of baby gear.

You can also build your own registry using Amazon. Be sure to fill it with a selection of useful things for baby AND mom!

Pregnancy
  • Good Gradient Compression Hosiery
  • Comfortable shoes
  • 3-5 versatile pants/short/skirts
  • 5-8 maternity shirts
  • 1-2 maternity dresses
  • Pregnancy pillow
  • Preggie pops!
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Support Band
Nursery
  • Crib
  • Crib Mattress
  • Dresser
  • Rocking Chair
  • Baby Monitor
Baby Bedding
  • Crib Sheets – at least 2, but 3-4 is better
  • Mattress Pad – again 2-4 is good
  • Receiving Blankets – 4-6 (lightweight for summer babies, heavier for winter ones)
  • Baby Quilts – 2
Diapering
  • Changing Table w/ Cushioned Pad
  • Diaper Pail and Liners
  • Functional Diaper Bag – Go for lots of compartments, easy access to necessities, and light on the feminine features (you want Dad to be willing to carry it, too)
  • Diaper cream – 1 tube for now since you may need to switch brands depending on what works best for your baby
  • Wipes – Unscented are best on delicate skin. Get a whole case of these things. You’ll seriously use them.
  • Washcloths – Soft baby ones are best
  • Diapers – Have a couple of boxes on ready because you won’t want to run out in the middle of the night when you’re suddenly out of them. It’s a great idea to have some Size 1 on hand because most kiddos won’t stay in the Newborn ones long.
