I think we can all agree that there are a ton of products out there when it comes to choosing baby items to add to your registry! As new parents, you’re not entirely sure what you’re going to use and need, so you pretty much ask for anything and everything. There’s an incredible amount of information out there and while product reviews are helpful, it can all be very overwhelming.
I chose not to have a baby shower (even though my friends and family decided to surprise me with one anyways) so that I could avoid having to create a registry and also because my sister was going to provide me with a lot of great hand-me-downs. Mine and my husbands family were also kind enough to buy us the necessities and I was planning on winging it from there.
Shopping for your new baby should be fun and exciting and I don’t want any moms or new moms to stress about getting the latest and greatest products because ultimately when your baby enters this world there really is only so much you’ll need! Yes, the little luxuries in life are great (who wouldn’t want their bum cleaned with a warm baby wipe), but just remember that A) you need a place to put all of your new paraphernalia and B) you may not even use half of the things you receive! Let’s be honest, the ‘boring’ gifts are usually the most practical and are also the ones that you’ll use the most… like my husbands Sonicare for example, haha! I’m all about practicality and I LOVE products that grow with your baby so here are some of my favourite baby items that I’ve used and continue to use on a regular basis for my now 5-month old.
