BABY REGISTRY. Those two words can make any new parents shake in their boots. If being pregnant isn’t hard enough, now you have to worry about getting ready for baby. Diapers, pacifiers, bottles, burp clothes, wipes, diapers, bouncers, strollers, car seat, clothes, shoes, socks … did your head just explode a little? Deep breathes, stick with me!
When we were getting ready for our son Kaeden’s arrival, I was finishing up a few classes near our home while Justin was working at an architectural firm in the city. Between classes, work, homework, our two dogs … we barely had enough energy to get through the day. We had no idea how we were going to find the time to go register for everything that we needed.
One day, I was on Pinterest, and stumbled upon a baby registry by the name of BabyList. From the get go their moto of “As a new parent, you’ll have plenty of decisions to make for the first time. Figuring out which baby registry to use shouldn’t be one of them” got me hooked. I was desperate to find some stress relief. As I read on, I was blown away that a registry like this existed!
Let me tell you why. Typically as new parents, you get the advice to go and register at multiple stores, as stores have different options, pricing, locations, so on and so forth. You want to give people options but you get left with the daunting task of keeping track of what you have registered for at what store, possibly not getting everything on your list, knowing which stores you have registered at, so and and so forth.
With BabyList Baby Registry, you can add ANYTHING from ANY store onto your list so that everything is in one registry. Say that again? Did I hear you right? YES! It’s that great! Amazon, Buy Buy Baby, Target, you name it! They even allow you to add items from Etsy! It all gets added into one registry.
Wait, that’s not all. Want to ask for favors as gifts for when they new baby arrives? BabyList has a list of help and favors that you can choose from or add your own!
Hold on, there’s more! Think that you guys want to start early on a college fund or perhaps as for a little extra financial help in the diaper buying department? Well, you guessed it! BabyList gives you the additional option of adding cash funds onto your registry!
Seriously, how did people get through registering before?
And if that’s not enough to get super excited about, they also have a BabyList app that you can easily download onto your phone for on-the-go registering that you and your partner can both share.
But, what if I already registered for items at another store? YOU CAN LINK IT INTO YOUR BABYLIST REGISTRY!
Mind = blown.
- Bonus: they mail you card inserts with your registry info for your shower invites
- Extra bonus: the compare pricing on products so that your guests get the best deal out there!
This registry was our saving grace and made everything easy sailing when it came baby shower time for us. If you or someone you know if looking for the ultimate baby registry, give it a shot. But remember, there’s so many options out there, there’s no wrong way to go.
