I created a baby registry when I was at the end of my first trimester. I was immediately prompted to start adding items to it, and felt one sort of emotion: Overwhelment. So many different options for bottles, diapers, blankets, nursery themes, AH.
I'm glad they have so many different items on the market for baby and moms, but let's be real: it's insane. I wanted to be practical and just have the absolute must haves for baby and anything else I feel is needed I'll buy when it comes up.
The amazing thing about baby registries is it's a time for your friends and family to get together and give a gift to the one on the way. Registries are so helpful, because your family will be buying y'all stuff anyways, so this gives them a great guideline to follow and see what you are needing and what style you are going for. I personally registered on Target, but Walmart, Babies R Us, and Buy Buy Baby are great options too! I just noticed Target had the most average prices and weren't overpriced, and Walmart was kind of hard to navigate.
