What’s on Our Baby Registry: 7 Items I’m Excited About

Putting together a baby registry was so, so much fun! So far, pregnancy has consisted of lots of waiting from appointment to appointment, so it was exciting to take action and begin planning for baby’s arrival.

I began our baby registry in Week 10, just for fun — and suddenly, a book Ben was reading suggested completing our registry in Week 14! So, Ben and I put our heads together for a couple of Starbucks dates and cross-referenced baby registry checklists from Pampers, The Bump, and What to Expect — and our registry was complete!

What’s On Our Baby Registry

While our entire registry can be found here, today I wanted to share about some of the key products I’m most looking forward to buying or receiving!

Cradlewise Smart Crib

After much deliberation and many comparisons, we’ve decided on the Cradlewise Smart Crib for our bassinet and crib.

Baby Activity Play Mat

This Floral Garden Baby Activity Play Mat is so beautiful — and I just love all of the different textures and colors.

DockATot Grand Dock

I love how this extra-large DockATot can serve as a little play area once baby is sitting. The color is beautiful, and I think it will be really versatile!

Elvie Pump

I watched many comparison videos and read many comparison articles about the “best” breast pump. In the end, I really liked the Elvie’s features!

Freshly Picked Diaper Bag

Organizing may be my love language — so I picked this diaper bag because of its durability, pockets, and compartments. It’s also really cute!

Orbit System

This is the Orbit stroll, sleep, and ride system! Ben and I both love how this system can grow with baby — and we value the pivot feature. (We’re getting old!)

Halo Swaddle Sleep Sack

I find swaddling to be so intimidating! I’ve watched videos — but my mind turns to mush! So, we opted for sleep sacks like Halo!

I’m so happy our registry is complete! I’m sure we’ll learn a ton along the way — what we use most, and what we use least — but for now, I’m excited for everything we’ve chosen.
