The BEST baby registry list ever! (2019 update)

*This baby registry list was originally written in 2013, a few months after I had my first baby girl, Anabelle. Now that I've had THREE babies, Lyla in 2015 and Millie in 2018 I've updated this post with new favorites. This post has been pinned on Pinterest tens of thousands of times and even led to a feature in Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine in April 2015, a month before my second baby was born.

This post is 100% unsponsored (although I ONLY work with brands I absolutely love in other sponsored posts, which are ALWAYS clearly disclosed at the bottom). I've given my honest and most heartfelt opinion on everything, and I gave this exact same list and exact same advice to my own sister when she had her first. I feel honored so many of you have trusted me to help you find baby gear you'll love and I hope this helps make everything from the blowouts to the late night feeds to the many “firsts” just a little easier.

With love,
Corrine

Baby Registry List

I am so excited to finally bring you a post that has been in draft mode for months, edited and re-edited, added to, deleted, and perfected. It's really been a labor of love. This is my ultimate best baby registry list of ALL the things you will need for your baby.

When I got prego the first time in 2012, I made it my business to know about all the hottest products and researched the heck out of every baby gadget out there. I interviewed interrogated best friends, co-workers, my sister in law, neighbors, even complete strangers in public on their favorite baby everything. I joined online mom forums. I religiously followed (stalked) baby guru experts. I think I read everything on the internet ever published about every stroller, carrier, diaper, binky, and onesie out there.  I'm only slightly exaggerating, but not much. Before I even had my kid, my friends were referring their friends to me for baby gear questions. If you want to nerd out on a convo about strollers or car seats, come sit by me!

As you can imagine, when I actually HAD my baby, I discovered even more what I actually like, don't like, LOVE, can't live without, etc. And that's what I'm going to share today with all of you.

Amazon Baby Registry

My favorite place to create a registry? Amazon baby registry because they have a generous completion program (15% off everything on your registry after your baby is born if you're a member of amazon prime), free returns for 90 days – no questions asked, you can add things from ANY other website (not just amazon) to your amazon registry. It's SO easy for people who shop Amazon anyway to buy things off your registry, AND they have an amazing thank-you note organizer that automatically saves the mailing addresses of anyone who sends you a gift so you can easily send them a thank you note. Need I say more?!

Lastly, because my blog mint arrow is dedicated to deals, I promise that anytime I find a deal on any of these baby favorites and must haves, I'll post them on my blog! So if you're liking what you see below, make sure you sign up for my newsletter to get updates on the best deals I find on baby gear plus fashion, beauty, kid stuff, home decor, etc.

So, without further ado, here are my absolute MUST HAVE favorite baby items.

the best baby registry list ever

Ruched maternity dress
Kimono
Sandals

Bumpin in style:

Mother's Special Blend All Natural Skin Toning Oil: I have stretch marks all over my body from growing fast as a kid, but I didn't get a SINGLE stretch mark on my belly during ANY of my 3 pregnancies and I believe it's because I used this stuff daily. It smells good, helps with itching, and doesn't stain your clothes or bedding.
*Used this with my second AND THIRD pregnancy and STILL not a single stretch mark on my belly! I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

Maternity cami: I lived in these while I was prego. SO great for underneath any shirt that won't button, a cardi that doesn't quite fit anymore, or to cover your cleave with your new sprouting boobies. because if you're like me they've already grown two sizes. Oh don't worry, they aren't done growing. Just you wait till your milk comes in!

Speaking of be maternity, their Bella Band is fantastic for that weird in-between stage where you aren't quite ready for maternity pants but you can't button yours either. Of the brands I tried, these were my fave and (bonus!) least expensive.

For my second pregnancy I tried out this belly band and I hate to say it but it worked WAY better! It's just stronger, sturdier, better made, will keep your pants up all day. Third pregnancy – didn't use any type of belly/bella band for very long because the third time around especially, I knew JUST how amazing maternity jeans were and didn't want to wait one day longer than necessary to jump right into maternity jeans.

Paige Ultra Skinny Maternity Jeans: Over the course of three pregnancies I've tried everything from the cheapest to most expensive, and THIS is the pair I would wear every single day if I had to choose just one! So comfy and cute and flattering. 1000% worth every penny. One of my ONLY regrets from my first pregnancy was waiting so dang long to just buy maternity clothes.

Let me be crystal clear: THERE IS NO SHAME IN WEARING MATERNITY CLOTHES. They are awesome. AWESOME. Comfy. Cute. Not frumpy like they were, um, a few years back. A million times better than uncomfortably trying to make your regular clothes work. Just do it. You'll wonder why you waited so long.

Amazon ruched dress: Pictured above, so stretchy and SOFT and comfy and pretty and it comes in a zillion colors so you can match it with a bunch of different kimonos or cardigans – one of my favorite FLATTERING ways to dress up a bump!

Asos maternity dresses: My favorite source for maternity dresses! You can find something for the most casual settings to the fanciest. The dress I'm wearing above came from them. It's sold out completely now but they're constantly adding new cute ones so check back frequently throughout your pregnancy.

In the hospital and going home:

Swaddle Blankets: The first time, everyone told me to NOT bring my own swaddle blankets into the hospital for my baby. But I went with my gut and threw them in my bag anyway. And I'm SO GLAD I DID. I absolutely loved having my own swaddle blankets. The floral one pictured above is from this etsy shop.

swaddle blankets

We've loved aden + anais swaddle blankets through all 3 of our baby's births, but my VERY favorite swaddles recently are Mebie Baby. They are SO crazy stretchy and soft and HUGE! Bigger than any of the other swaddles we've tried which makes such a big difference when your babies are tall. I can't even tell you how much I love them. We also really love Saranoni swaddle blankets and their comfy lush blankets (not for swaddling but just for snuggling) are the very softest in the entire world. You can use code MINT for 15% off!

How many: I was told you should have at least 12 swaddle blankets. I'm sort of embarrassed to say we had 20 something, BUT we used all of them! think about it, they spit up all day, have blow outs, etc, and you swaddle them in those constantly. If you want to not do laundry daily, I honestly suggest getting 16-20.

Miracle blanket: My family thought this was so mean, they even called it the straight jacket. but, this thing really is incredible! It makes swaddling so easy (and idiot proof) and helps your baby to get all cozy-swaddled for the perfect sleepy time.

Sidenote: I was also told to not bring my own baby clothes into the hospital. Whatever. I'm SO glad I didn't follow that advice! there was nothing better than dressing up my brand new baby girl in cuddly clothes that I picked out just for her. That's just me though.

Baby's first clothes: We love gap's first favorites collection! Just remember that your little one will need to be in an outfit with legs (not a footless bundler) to ride home in his/her car seat from the hospital. Also, you'll want to wash the clothes in baby detergent before you bring them to the hospital. Also pictured below are l'oved baby organic jammies which we've loved, and Millie's ruffle sleeve onesie was sold out (check these cute onesies) and it is my favorite onesie she owns! I've also really loved Rosie Pope baby on amazon – SUPER cute and really affordable.

Baby shoes: you won't need these for a while, but hands-down my very FAVORITE baby shoes are Freshly Picked Moccasins. I've bought and treasured these for each of my babies and they're not only the cutest but the best shoes for your babies to learn to walk in, and they actually stay on their little feet.

best baby stuff

I also took with us the bow hats you see below. I had always seen SO many babies with the cutest little bow hats in the hospital and wondered if just maybe some hospitals stocked those, until I finally asked my friend and L&D nurse Heidi (who's also a Mint Arrow team member!) about them and she told me the nurses MAKE these bows out of a regular hospital baby hat – who knew! I was so happy I had bought my own though for $12 because the hospital I delivered at didn't make one for me so I was so glad I had gotten my own. Also pictured above: braided pacifier clipnatursutten pacifier (these are so pretty but my kids never like them ha), newborn bonnet ($12 for 2!), stretchy bow headband.

cutest baby headband

Gerber onesies: The hospital will have some, but you'll want some at home too. The basic gerber ones are awesome.

Extra long iPhone cord: If you own an iPhone, you will be SO HAPPY you ordered one of these. You won't be able to get up out of bed very easily but will probably want to be able to use your phone a lot, and who knows how close the nearest outlet will be. I was sooooo glad I had this!

Hair ties: These ones are my fave.

Toiletries: Bring your makeup, your favorite shampoo and conditioner, favorite lotion, deodorant, some dry shampoo (this dry shampoo is my very favorite) and facial cleansing wipes, your toothbrush, etc. You will want to freshen up a little, I promise! It will make you feel so much better, especially if you're in the hospital for more than a day. See my full hospital bag in this post.

what to pack in a hospital bag

Husband/partner's bag: Tell your hubs/partner to pack a change of clothes, and if he plans on staying at the hospital with you, his own pillow, maybe even his own sheets or a blanket he likes, his own snacks and any medication he might need, a laptop if he can do work from the hospital during down-time, and a movie or two (although our hospital had a red box the first time and movies on the TV the last two times).

If you already have a kid at home, things will be a little different this time! This is how we did things with baby #2: since I had a scheduled c-section, we had a planned babysitter for the day of Lyla's delivery. A babysitter brought Anabelle to the hospital to meet Lyla a few hours after she was born, then Neil took Anabelle home and I stayed in the hospital with Lyla. Each day after that we had a sitter in the morning come to the house and stay with Ani while Neill came for 3-4 hours to hang out and bond with Lyla, then he went home around lunch time and after Ani's afternoon nap, early evening(ish) they both came back to the hospital for a short visit and to bring me dinner 🙂 that worked out really well for us! Then the day you are discharged, you for sure want to leave older sibling(s) at home with a sitter while dad helps you gather all your stuff and takes you & baby home. When I had Millie (baby #3) we tried this schedule but the two older girls were so crazy the second day so I told Neil to just leave them at home (ha!) after their second visit, and that they could just see baby sis when we got home from the hospital.

Hospital gown: Make sure they give you one of these. Being funny, but really. People made the biggest deal out of getting great/cute/comfy/stylish button downs and jammies and sweats and runway gowns (kidding) to wear in the hospital. And you know what? I wore the hospital gown the whole time. Easy access for the nurses who need to check you every couple hours, easy access for nursing, baggy enough to comfortably cover everything you need and want covered while you're recovering from just birthing a human.

See everything I packed in my hospital bag here

With Lyla and Millie I did take a couple sleep shirts or pajama sets (this is my all time fave!) that buttoned to hang out in and I'm glad I did! It was nice for pictures on Mother's Day (below) and when visitors came.

Your own robe, slippers, and flip flops: This cozy barefoot dreams robe is SO SOFT! I've been wearing it for years now and it's still like it's brand new. And ugg slippers are my favorite.

Nursing Bras: these are my new favorites because they're ultra affordable (3 for $27!), comfy enough to sleep in. but have a removable cup liner so they hide your nips and nursing pads and you feel like you can wear them out and about with real clothes! They're also the very best for the Willow Pump (more on that in a minute). For a nicer bra, this one by Bravado is my current fave – also comfy enough to sleep in which is a huge bonus when you're often falling asleep in your clothes ha!

You'll want something comfy to go home in too. not to burst your bubble, but there's basically no chance in h. You're going to fit into your pre-pregnancy pants. So plan on wearing something very comfortable, stretchy, think drawstring and what you comfortably wore 6-months prego. With Anabelle I wore a velour sweatsuit home and uggs since it was winter in Utah… nice and comfy. With Lyla and Millie, since we're in California now and it was end of spring, I wore a free people dress home from the hospital that I knew I'd feel totally comfortable in. flowy, comfy, easy.

You can't leave the hospital without a car seat so …

baby carseat

Nuna Pipa car seat & base: We've used this one for Lyla and now Millie and LOVE it! The newest version, the Nuna Pipa Lite is one of the lightest on the market (5.7 lbs), and the privacy screen is so great! No need for a car seat canopy. It's also extremely easy to install into a car. We use it with our city select stroller and it clicks right into the stroller base with this adapter kit. I also LOVE it in the UppaBaby Vista with this adapter!

City Go Car Seat: this is my #1 pick for a stroller that's budget-friendly AND has amazing amazon reviews!! This is the one I had my mom get for my sister and she loves it, and we bought it too just so we could have a car seat with the seatbelt path for traveling, since the Nuna Pipa Lite doesn't have one! It's actually very cozy for baby to sit and sleep in too!

mama recovery:

I have c-sections, so these are my recommendations based off a c-section recovery. By the way, motherhood is amazing and beautiful no matter what way you become a mother, be that a c-section, natural birth, birth with drugs, or adoption. Just had to throw that in there!

Mesh undies: Hoard these. Take as many homes as you can. You will be glad you did. Just trust me on this.

Pads: You are gonna need these. For a while. way longer than you expect (probably) if you are a first-time mom. These are the ones I liked best.

Fridababy momwasher is 100000x better than the squirt bottle that the hospital gives you! I think it’s my most favorite postpartum discovery of this pregnancy and I want to hand one to every woman who has a new baby. It’s THAT GOOD.

Colace: Take this religiously. Do not forget. Do not skip it. Do not cheat. Do not run out. Do not forget to buy it. Do not collect $200 and go directly to jail. No but really. just trust me on this one.

best housedresses

Belly Bandit: I was SO GLAD I bought this. It kind of helps feel like you have something supporting/holding everything in while your c-section scar heals. If you didn't have a c-section, It will still help with pulling everything in and moving your hips back into place while your body still has relaxin in its system – the chemical that helps your hips spread to prepare for baby to come out (ha thanks a lot right!) stays in your system anywhere from at least 6 weeks to a year. Take advantage of when your hips will move easily and wear this thing every day for the first 6 weeks to help your hips go back to normal. When I used this mine went back for sure to their normal size and maybe even a bit smaller! With my second and third postpartum experiences, I tried out a few post-pregnancy girdles to see if I liked anything better. I tried cheaper, more expensive, etc., and I still love belly bandit the best!

House dresses: Let’s be honest, you’re gonna feel a little like you just got hit by a semi-truck, yet you still look 6 months pregnant, and combining that with the sleeplessness it’s kind of hard to feel human after having a baby! I have LOVED the house dress trend that’s been huge this time around (where was this when I had my other two babies?!?!!!) and one of the BEST house dresses I’ve found was from Nesting Olive (pictured above). I love that the sleeves are a little more tailored, the body is at a flattering a-line, and it has convenient snaps for nursing! It’s cute enough to wear on your first couple ventures out of the house but comfy enough to sleep in.

Diapering, laundering, bathtime and first aid:

Amazon family: If you're die-hard into name-brand diapers and wipes, this is the best way to go. You can sign up for a free 30 day trial membership here and it will give you 30 days of free 2-day shipping, a 20% discount on diapers and wipes, and other special promotions throughout the year that I'll always post about on my blog when they pop up, like special discount events where tons of gear and baby products are offered at a huge discount.

HOW MANY?: Okay, the hospital will give you diapers. But you'll (obviously) need some when you go home. And unless you have a really big baby, your babe will most likely be in newborn size diaps for a few weeks.

I stressed and STRESSED about how many diapers to buy in what sizes and here's my advice: take a deep breath and don't worry about it. Buy ONE jumbo package of newborn size diapers and then just wait and see how fast your baby grows. I swear my baby was only in size 2 for a few weeks, but she's been in size 3 for months! kids are all different and it's a little unpredictable what sizes they'll be in at which ages and for how long.

One of my favorite diaper tricks: I like to buy up a size and put my baby in those at night with a little diaper cream. They're her “nighttime” diapers and then when I realize she's suddenly grown out of her current diapers, I already have the next size up on-hand. So for example, when she was in newborn diapers, she slept in a size 1 diaper at night.

Favorite diapers: I used to SWEAR by Target diapers but you guys – I am so sad – they totally changed them and they're terrible now! At first I thought it was a fluke, but a few blowouts and leaks later I've sworn them off now 🙁 But one brand that's gotten even BETTER is Honest diapers. I used to talk some heat on these diapers saying they were a silly luxury, buying “cute” diapers for your kid to pee and poop in but YOU GUYS. They changed the overall construction of their diaper and they are BY FAR the most absorbent, blowout-proof, leak-proof diaper I've used this time and Neil agrees. Honest diapers are just superior, which is nice when you're spending more!

If you're on a tight budget I actually think amazon basics diapers are pretty good too!

Wipes: I have tried LOTS and my favorite for inexpensive are Costco hands down! Honest company has some really great plant-based wipes that come in super cute packaging to match your cute diapers that we've loved for being gentle and effective. If you're interested in water wipes, I tried both the water wipes brand and Pamper's version and I like Pampers water wipes the best!

Aquaphor baby healing ointment: this has been the most amazing butt cream I've ever used, better than butt paste, better than desitin, better than everything I've tried. I put a layer of this on Millie's butt before bed every single night before I put her down for the night and it's like a protective layer that prevents diaper rash. I LOVE IT.

BabyBum Diaper cream brush: for sure the most ridiculous looking baby gear item I've ever seen but also the most underrated by far!I thought these were just straight up stupid when I first saw them, but okay they're ACTUALLY PRETTY COOL. It allows you to spread the cream or ointment on their bum way more evenly and then you just wipe it off with your wipe after and your fingers aren't covered in baby butt cream while you try to not get it on your baby as you set him/her down before you go wash your hands. You're laughing if you've done this before because you know it's true!

This smart changing pad/scale is a bit of a splurge, but I love that it has helped me to track baby Millie's growth and development in between doctor's appointments. It's both a changing pad and a scale, and it automatically syncs with an app on my phone to log her weight at every changing. A smart changing pad is the kind of thing I totally rolled my eyes at when I first heard about it, but Millie was under weight and needed extra check-ups in her first few days home so this actually provided me with a LOT of peace of mind and I felt like it was totally worth easing my mind. Now that she's moved past being underweight, I love that it gives all kinds of insights into weight, feedings, and diaper changes through the app and it's actually all really fascinating to follow along with!

Munchkin Diaper Pail: Many people recommended this diaper pail over the diaper genie and we love it. It's way less expensive and the arm&hammer baking soda helps take care of the smell! I've heard a lot of people say they just use a regular trash can and that's great too.

Munchkin diaper bag dispenser: this has been a lifesaver more than once! Changing a stinky diaper with nowhere to dispose of it? No problem, this little bag dispenser will keep it from stinking up your car or someone else's house until you can get to a proper trash! I've also used one of these for a blowout on an outfit that you don't want to throw away if you're out and about, but you can't wash it right on the spot.

Gathre micro mat: I LOVE this little mat to throw in all my diaper bags! It makes changing baby on any surface, whether it's one of those sketchy pull-down things in a public restroom or your friend's sofa or an airport waiting area feel a whole lot safer because there's a buffer between baby's cute bum and the surface you're changing them on. We LOVE gathre mats for our big girls too for all their crafting adventures, we take one on every single beach trip, and Neil is a stickler about ALWAYS having one in the trunk of our cars to protect the upholstery from stroller rash haha. Yes I just made that up.

Dreft: I love that it's gentle enough to not irritate that beautiful new baby skin, and it smells amazing! We get it on subscription here.

Oxiclean Versatile Stain Remover: An absolute must for getting all those baby spit up stains out. There will be a lot of them. Get ready.

Fels-naptha soap: One of my sweet neighbors came to meet Lyla when she was just a couple days old and brought me a bar of this soap and told me it was the BEST for getting out baby blowout stains. She was right! I'll never go back. Immediately wash any of those blowouts out in cold water and scrub with this bar of soap, then throw in the wash and they'll come out completely unscathed.

Noodle & Boo Ultimate Cleansing Cloths: So nice for when they're a few days old and you can't get their little umbilical cord wet. Also great if you've just bathed them and then they spit up and you don't want the poor thing to smell like spit-up all day. These smell like heaven.

Eurobath: Hands down my favorite baby bath. A ton of other moms recommended this to me and it was a million times easier to use than the tummy tub (the baby bathtub I originally bought). it also converts nicely to a sitting-up tub once they're at that stage.

Puj tub: this one is so nice for when they're teeny tiny, and it folds up so small and travels really easily too! Ideal if you live in a smaller space and don't have a lot of storage. Just know they grow out of these pretty fast so you'll need something else by 6 months at least.

Noodle & Boo Soothing Body Wash and Super Soft Lotion: This set is still one of my favorite baby smells. Every single time anyone picks up one of my babies after I used this wash or lotion on her, they say “oooh she smells so good!” I've switched Lyla and Millie over to Tubby Todd pretty quickly because it's way better for their skin, but for nostalgic reasons I've had all 3 of my girls take their first bath in Noodle & Boo and I have a feeling it's a scent that will make me cry someday when I want to remember what it was like having a brand new baby.

Tubby Todd: the MOST AMAZING baby soap and lotion of all time. If you have a baby with skin issues, this will change your life! With Anabelle we didn't have much of an issue with eczema but Lyla had it pretty bad at first. We started using Tubby Todd and it cleared up OVERNIGHT. Millie has had a little bit of  baby acne and cradle cap and it vanishes within 24 hours every time I apply the all over ointment. Washing my babies in Tubby Todd and applying all-over ointment has given them the most beautiful flawless baby skin. This is a MUST in my opinion.

You can use code MINTARROW15 anytime for a 15% off discount to Tubby Todd!

baby soap

Baby Washcloths: These are ultra soft and inexpensive and perfect for baby bath time.

Little giraffe hooded towel: I've gotten one for Lyla and for Millie because theyr'e THE softest towels I've ever felt in my life. It was a splurge (on sale during the nordstrom anniversary sale) but one of my favorite baby items. Definitely more of a fun luxury than a must-have, but a great gift idea if you're giving to someone who's having their second or third or tenth baby 🙂 Just don't put it in the dryer, it will lose its softness!! Hang dry only.

FridaBaby NailFrida: Cutting baby fingernails is the worst part of being a mommy. There's no way of getting around it and you will feel like the worst person to walk this earth when you cut your baby's fingers for the first time. But it's also terrible when they scratch themselves so it's a necessary evil. Sorry. Good luck. These are the best nail clippers I've found for babies though!

Braun baby Thermometer: We started Anabelle out with an anal thermometer and hated it. It was so hard to get an accurate reading, so I finally spent $30 and ordered this one instead. Love it. So comforting to know your baby's true temp by just putting this in their ear when they're sick! This is the best seller for baby thermometers on amazon.

Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator: Truly one of the most genius inventions ever. you will be so glad you bought this. Trust me.

Nursing/Bottle feeding:

I nursed and pumped, so these are my recommendations based off my personal experience.

Sleep Bra for Nursing and Maternity: My sister told me about this one! It's the best and most comfy nursing bra for sleeping, hanging out at home, and when your boobs are engorged and the size of watermelons. I wish I were kidding.

Ultra thin nursing pads: You will need A LOT OF THESE. I tried washable ones because I loved the idea of being a little green but they leaked because I over-produced like mad. These get the job done. And you are going to need LOTS. Don't ever leave the house without an extra pair until you're really confident you understand how much milk your body produces. I SWEAR by this brand – they're ultra thin and yet they're a thousand times more absorbent than any others I've ever tried. My lansinoh ones used to leak if I forgot to change them between every feeding. I can wear these all day long with zero problems.

Nursing cover: This cover completely changed my life! I went from being nervous and uncomfortable to completely confident and not worried one bit about nursing anytime, anywhere. The best part about this cover is it covers your front and back! It's soft, stretchy, machine washable, and can be used as a car seat canopy in a pinch, too. I've used and loved my covered goods cover and milksnob covers. They're both awesome!

Gerber birdseye flatfold cloth diapers are great for using as burp cloths around the house. A splurge that's well worth it IMO are the aden + anais burpy bibs. They are the nicest and we use them a TON. Love that they double as bibs. Great for on-the-go. With Millie I've loved these organic burp cloths too.

breast pumps

Breast Pumps: I'm pretty passionate about pumping because I did it almost every day for the first year of my first baby's life, I pumped for six months for Lyla, and have pumped every day so far with Millie too.

Spectra Pump: my #1 choice now for an affordable, portable and hospital grade pump! I've tried Medela, Ameda and now the Spectra and by far my fave of a traditional pump is the Spectra. I love that it’s reasonably priced, love that it has a tiny night light, love that it’s not too gigantic or heavy. My only complaint is that it has a single bottle holder spot in the back, which is nice because it keeps it small but weird that there’s just one! It’s hospital grade and it was one of the top recommended new baby items that other moms told me about before I had my newest baby Millie.

Willow Pump: for the mom on-the-go, especially working moms or even if you just see yourself traveling or needing to pump on the go while you run kids to different appointments or anywhere where you don’t want to have to plug into a wall or have huge bottles hanging off your body and tubes coming out everywhere, the Willow Pump will turn your world upside down!! This pump has literally been a complete and total GAME CHANGER for me this time around. I can pump virtually anywhere, very discreetly, without having to worry about plugging in or tubes or hiding gigantic pump bottles.

Comotomo bottles: these ones that feel like a boob! My girls have loved these, they feel the most like a boob and real nipple so they’re supposed to cut down on nipple confusion if you’re worried about that! They also are designed so you don’t need a bottle brush to clean them out which is SO NICE. They have vents as well to help with proper digestion and to avoid colic or gassiness by reducing the amount of air they’re gulping.

Gerber first essentials bottles: when Millie is a little older we’ll probably also start using these bottles that Lyla carried around for EVER! You can get them for about $1 a piece at Target and I never stressed about Lyla leaving one somewhere or having to throw one away if it was gross after not being cleaned out once she switched to formula at 6 months.

Baby Brezza Formula Pro: speaking of formula, I switched Lyla to formula feeding at 6 months (more on that here) and we absolutely LOVED this formula bottle maker!!! It warms, mixes and dispenses the perfect amount of formula FOR YOU. One of those things I thought might be silly and unnecessary that turned out to be something we used SO MUCH that it felt like it was worth every single penny.

Dr. Brown's Breastmilk Storage Bags: These are a little more expensive than the most popular milk storage bags, but they're more sturdy and less likely to tip over and spill! I felt like the extra couple dollars was well worth it and bought these over and over. I also love these bags for the same reason!

OXO Tot Bottle Brush with Nipple Cleaner and Stand: The best bottle brush ever. I read up on my reviews and this one lives up to the hype. I bought it in pink because I'm obnoxious like that. Gender neutral, what's that? ha.<

Philips 2 Pack AVENT Soothie Pacifier: These are the pacifiers most hospitals use, but my girls have never taken these super well. My advice with pacifiers, if you're hoping your baby will take one, is to buy a bunch of different kinds and just see what they like!

POP pacifier: this has been Millie's very favorite binky by far, and I think it's because the silicone is SO SOFT. It feels most like a real nipple! We also love that if these fall on the floor, the nipple POPS back so it doesn't get dirty. This paci was even featured on Shark Tank for being so smart!!

Madeline's box paci clips: We love these pretty pacifier clips for keeping our baby's binkys clean! Cute and functional – yes please.

Wubbanub: I remember seeing people whose kids had these in their mouths and thinking “those things are fugly and my kid will never use one of those.” yeah, I ate my words. They are the bomb when your baby can't keep the bink in their mouth. The little stuffed animal has just enough weight to help hold the binkie in, and it will help them with grabbing onto something to get it back in their mouth on their own, too.

Boppy Bare Naked Pillow: I absolutely lived for my boppy when i nursed! I wanted a new boppy cover for Lyla since my first one was covered in spit-up stains and pretty hammered. I splurged on this soft cover and love it. Washes up really well and is super well made!

We bought a bottle warmer and hated it. If you're going to breast feed and pump, I suggest just running the pumped milk under hot water (refrigerated or frozen). It's easy, quick, and will never be too hot for your baby.

Read ALL MY TIPS on breasfeeding, pumping, and bottle feeding in this post!

Baby food feeding:

Boon Flair Pedestal Highchair: The best high chair ever of all time, IMO. We are obsessed. No cracks or crevices for nasty leftovers to hide out in. Perfect snug/comfy fit. Removable tray liner that's small enough to actually fit into your dishwasher. Has a pneumonic lift like a barber chair. Best purchase you will ever make.

Ikea Antilop Highchair: The second best high chair and it's $20. We have this at my mom's house and love it! The boon flair still wins in my book because of the pneumonic lift, the fit (this Ikea high chair has pretty big gaps for food to drop into when kids are learning to feed themselves and also to wiggle out of) but, having said that, it's an excellent choice if you're on a tight budget!

NUK Gerber Graduates Rest Easy Spoons: Our favorite baby spoons. Love the built-in support that makes putting the spoon down without having it touch the counter super easy.

Boon Dishes: Favorite baby food dishes! Love the no-slip bottoms. ** we haven't gotten to baby food yet with Millie but I'll update on our new favorites when we do!

Bumkins Waterproof SuperBib: Best bibs ever!

baby snoo bassinet

Nursery:

Snoo: okay this is by far the COOLEST new baby invention since we had Lyla 3 years ago. I actually met Dr. Harvey Karp at a baby event in LA almost 5 years ago and I remember him telling me about how they were developing a smart crib that would rock your baby back to sleep for you, but they were going through crazy testing to make sure it was safe. I was SO excited to see it finally come out and try it with Millie!!

The SNOO bassinet is practically like having a mother’s helper around the clock in your house…FOR REAL! It’s a smart sleeper that actually responds to your baby’s fussing and movement. So if it senses them tossing and turning or crying out, it will respond with increased rocking and white noise to soothe them! It comes with tracking capabilities on your phone, including how long their longest stretch of sleep is by the day. You can also set it to a more gentle mode if you have a preemie baby, and a weaning mode when you’re ready to wean them and move them to the crib.

It comes with swaddles that attach to the bed and keep baby on their back, so it claims to be the safest bassinet on the market. AND let’s talk about how beautiful it is! The minimalist and chic design of the Snoo looks good in every nursery.

The price is definitely up there and I don’t think for a minute it’s a necessity to getting your baby to sleep. My first two girls slept through the night JUST fine without the Snoo, so I would never want any new mom to feel like their baby isn't going to sleep if they can't afford the Snoo. But it is for sure REALLY nice to have, and when people ask me (all the time) whether it’s worth the splurge I always say, “YES! It totally is.”  Because if you’re the type of person who’s considering splurging on it, and it’s reasonably within your budget, I think it’s an AMAZING help to mom and dad who could use more sleep at night. However, if you’re just like “no way I can’t spend that much!” then the same company actually makes those same magic swaddle sacs that you can buy for $26, and add some white noise from an app on an iPad or a big box fan (from any hardware store) or a white noise maker and you’ll have something similar to the snoo, minus the rocking that responds to your baby’s cries.

snoo bassinet

Sleep books: speaking of sleep, I'm pretty passionate about this topic too and I should probably just write a separate post all about this! In the meantime, if you're a new mom or a mom who's had “bad sleepers” in the past and you want to try something new with a new baby, I highly HIGHLY recommend reading Baby Wise. I've followed these principles with all 3 of my girls and had amazing sleepers. Hint: it's ALL about the daytime schedule. And no, I haven't had to make any of them “cry it out.” Just read the book! 🙂

I also really like Happiest Baby on the Block, written by Dr. Karp who invented the Snoo!

Cribs: Here are a few of my faves!
Pottery Barn kendall crib $349 right now, super affordable, white, and classic.
Jenny Lind Crib: Charming and timeless.
Ikea also carries very affordable cribs that are super popular and perfect if you are planning a clean, modern design for your nursery.

We wanted something a little more modern for Lyla and Millie's nurseries so we got Lyla this crib and we're using it again for Millie. See Lyla's nursery here, and Millie's nursery here.

I also really love these babyletto cribs from target! Most of them are very affordable, modern, and so cute!

Milliard crib mattress: a top rated crib mattress on amazon that we got for Millie's nursery. It's affordable and had amazing reviews!

We've used this beautiful round modern bassinet, crib and toddler bed in 1 for our last 2 babies and I'm so excited to use it with our baby boy too.

dockatot

Dockatot: this is for sure one of my top 3 favorite new things we've gotten for Millie!! You guys. This thing is incredible! We use it for everything from lounging to sleeping to tummy time and I honestly don’t know how we’d live without it. It’s the perfect place for her to snuggle up after she eats and I loved it during recovery from my c-section because I could set Millie right next to me. We’ve brought it from room to room in the house and even to the beach! It also creates the perfect “safe zone” for her when her big sisters are playing or wanting to snuggle on the bed. Millie is just as cozy as can be in her comfy little bed, and I love that it’s lightweight enough that I can move it around the house.

If you end up buying the dockatot and loving it as much as we have, I also highly recommend buying the dockatot transport bag. We had to shove the dockatot in a suitcase for a couple of trips and I was so worried about ruining it. The travel bag is so nice because it fits perfectly and you have room to put a few other smaller things inside the bag too!

Changing table: We actually bought a used changing table that had been refinished from a local craigslist-like site (KSL) for Anabelle, but you can use any dresser that you have or find one at a thrift store and paint it, put a changing pad and cover on top, and voila. You have a changing table.

I was going for a more modern look for Lyla's nursery so I bought a West Elm dresser that I knew we could transition into a big girl room eventually or use in almost any room in our house later if we needed to switch things up! See it in her big girl bedroom now. We got this pretty one for Millie's room and I plan to keep using it for years just like we did with Lyla.

Pottery Barn kids comfort swivel glider:This glider is one of my favorite purchases because I spent so many hours nursing our baby in it, and it's so comfy I could fall asleep in it. I actually still use this three babies later, in our bedroom, for early morning, late night and every hour in between feedings!

I dreamed about getting a nurseryworks rocker with all 3 of my girls and finally got one for Millie's nursery! It's actually made ergonomically to be SO comfy and I love the hours I've spent nursing her in it.

baby bedding

Bedding: My favorite place for baby bedding now is the same place I find my favorite grownup bedding too – Anthropologie. Their stuff is beautiful, soft, well-made, and not cheesy or tacky and I feel like not a lot of people know they sell baby bedding! also, Target has some cute crib sheets that are super budget-friendly.

Hello Baby monitor: this one of the highest rated AND one of the most affordable baby monitors! I tried it out just so I could know if it was good enough to recommend and my answer is YES 1000%. It has amazing range, clear picture and sound, and I can keep an eye on Millie when I'm outside or on the other side of the house while she's napping.

We love our Vivint system cameras too as baby monitors and I LOVE that when I'm out and about I can still check on my baby from an app on my phone, anywhere.

White noise: you can use a box fan or a white noise maker (we love this one!) but most baby sleep experts agree that white noise is essential to getting babies good naps and to sleep through the night!

out and about:

City Select Stroller: We have this stroller and LOVE IT. Single that converts into a double, babies can face 16 different ways, travel system, best stroller on the planet. It glides like a dream and grows with your family from a single to a double and back to a single if your older kiddo grows out of sitting in a stroller, and you can even add a kick board for an older child to stand on. GENIUS! I have recommended this stroller more than ANY other stroller and it really is probably my favorite of all time, and it's one of my favorites to find AMAZING deals on for my readers so make sure you're following the blog for ALL the stroller deals I find!

UppaBaby Vista: we have this one too, after many many years of people asking me to compare it to the City Select and I have to say I do REALLY love it. It's very similar in my opinion to the City Select, and a lot harder to find on sale, whereas I'm pretty confident I can find my reader a killer deal on a City Select if she's reading my blog during her entire pregnancy. The heftier price tag on the UppaBaby is a little hard for me to justify in recommending it, but I do love that the undercarriage basket is GINORMOUS!! And I love using the Nuna Pipa lite in this stroller with this adapter. It just glides in like butter, where a lot of other strollers seem to

BOB Revolution Jogging Stroller: The very most popular jogging stroller on the market. If you are a jogger, this is a must-have. We own this and lovelovelove it too. Neil has taken our girls out on so many beach trail runs in the BOB and now in our Double BOB. They're so durable and great for families that are active or parents who want to be able to run with their babies.

baby stroller

Baby Jogger City Mini Single Stroller: In my opinion, the very best budget-friendly single stroller out there. lightweight, patented one-hand quick fold, huge canopy, huge undercarriage basket, sometimes called the cadillac of umbrella strollers (even though it's not truly an umbrella. it's cooler). If you can spring for the city mini GT version (in a single or double, whatever you need) DO IT because the wheels and weight and overall experience of the GT is amazing.

Baby Jogger City Tour: An even less expensive option, this stroller is amazing for travel!! We have taken this on so many trips and it folds the smallest of any stroller we own, it's incredibly lightweight, and unfolds with just one hand. If you're going to do a lot of traveling I highly recommend this one!

stroller organizer

Diono Buggy Buddy Stroller Organizer: The very best stroller organizer on the planet. $5.86 currently (usually always under $8). Works with EVERY stroller out there.

I haven't tried it myself, but this $32 stroller organizer is supposed to be amazing, according to the thousands of people who have reviewed it enough to make it the #1 amazon choice. I'll try it and report  back!

Ergobaby carrier: I love my ergo SOOOO MUCH. If you ever run into me at target or costco, chances are my baby is riding in my ergo while I push the cart. So that she can't escape like the monkey she is. Need your hands for something? making dinner? getting ready? you will want one of these.

Solly baby wrap: I didn't have this with Anabelle and it's for sure the #1 item I wish I could've gone back and given myself as a new mom. Now that I've had it for my second and third babies, I can't imagine doing the newborn stage without the Solly baby wrap! It's an absolute MUST HAVE for infants and mamas who need to be hands free. I love it for airplane travel, trips to the beach, walking around the mall, doing housework (on the rare occasion that I get around to that!), walks around our neighborhood, and just about everything else. Really.

baby diaper bag

Since this original post was written I've tried out many, many diaper bags and have found that my very favorite ones, especially for several kids/babies now, are my Fawn Design bag and my Freshly Picked bag. Both are huge enough to fit everything I need, anywhere I go, with three kids. It's nice enough to go with me to a nice dinner or to a casual park date and cleans up like a dream. Neil loves both of these bags too and never leaves the house with a kid without one of them locked and loaded! Ha. I love that they wipe clean so easily too since they're both faux leather. And they now come with a laptop sleeve!!

Other baby gear:

Car seat mirror: you don't necessarily need this brand but you'll love being able to look at the mirror and see if your babe's okay on the road.

BABYBJORN Travel Crib Light: I cannot say enough good things about this amazing travel crib. SUPER light weight, super easy to install (you literally pop the legs out and that's it. Takes me 10 seconds).

4moms BREEZE: Literally a breeze to set up! I mean it seriously just pops into place in 2 seconds flat. A little heavy though, which is why I also list the BabyBjorn travel crib above. But if you want the functionality of a playyard too, the 4moms BREEZE is for sure what you want!!

4moms breeze

This is a really good in-between version too that my sister owns and loves! She literally lived on the road for a year and a half with her baby and took this everywhere and loved it.

4Moms Mamaroo: Oh how we cherished our mamaroo! It was the only way I got an hour or two of sleep when Anabelle was just a few weeks old. She napped and slept so well in it. It rocks like a mom, has multiple modes, it's a swing and bouncer in one. It even has a car-ride mode. I seriously have an emotional attachment to that thing, and ALL 3 of my babies have loved it so much!

4moms mamaroo

Skiphop play mat: Your baby will play under this and love it more than you realize when you buy it at first. I thought it was a gimmicky waste of money, but we used it for months and months. Helped Anabelle learn to roll over, and was one of the first things she loved and interacted with. I think Skiphop makes the cutest ones now. We bought this one for Millie and she loves it!

Baby Shusher white noise maker. Yes you can download an app on your phone and stick that next to your baby in her car seat if she starts crying while you're at the mall/Target/church etc, BUT then you don't have your phone. Which presents a problem if your phone text alert goes off and you have to remove said white noise. Or if you need to call someone, or look something up, or kill time on Instagram. Let's be honest. Ha. This little thing is SO GENIUS for a lightweight, easy to throw in your diaper bag, little perfect white noise maker on the go that I've already used a BUNCH of times with Millie and she's only 6 weeks old!

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes: Probably Anabelle's favorite toy as a baby. Slightly annoying, totally worth it. Instant entertainer in a car ride or when I'm desperate for her to stay happy for 5 more minutes while I check out at Target.

Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether: Every baby's favorite teething toy. This thing has magical powers, I swear.

Are you still with me? I know this was a LONG LIST, but I hope it helps some people out there who are planning for a baby and are confused by all the options! like I said at the beginning, I'll continue to update this post as we find things we love (and change our minds about things we don't love as much, anymore).

If you're craving more baby gear / pregnancy / new mom advice, you can find WAY more in my baby archives.

And I'll ALWAYS keep you in the know with the best baby gear deals! Make sure you sign up for my newsletter so you never miss a deal.

Thanks for making this blog what it is, because like I always say, my blog is nothing without my readers! It's just me and … crickets. So really, from the bottom of my heart, thanks for stopping by and sticking around and coming back.

      1. I read your post the first time and just went through the whole updated one! Till the end! And I just wanna say how awesome it is to have something like this to go to when you have questions. We are having our first baby girl in 2months and I’m looking for all the advice and recommendations I can get! Thanks again!!

  2. corrine my eyes are bleeding! this is quite an amazing list, no wonder if took forever to produce.. i definitely would&#39;ve found this helpful when i was pregnant with my little guy – lots of great picks! my ergo is my lifesaver, too… my guy loves music too and that baby einstein take along tunes thing sounds pretty darn good. going to check it out… ^__^

    1. the baby einstein toy is amazing! best $8 i&#39;ve ever spent on a baby toy. i am hoping it&#39;s helpful for a lot of people! 🙂

  3. Seriously though, this list is amazing!!! The best list out there and I love that it&#39;s all specifics!! Great job girl!!! I am pinning this in hopes that everyone sees this!!!

  4. I just went through my baby registry again and added almost everything you recommended! Thank you so much! It made it soo much easier..you thought of things I had no idea existed!

  5. great list! i&#39;ve been so tired of baby registry lists on pinterest/blogs that only have really expensive stuff! there are two things we splurged on that i definitely felt were worth it – a BOB double jogging stroller and a PPB diaper bag (on sale, of course! 🙂

  6. I literally just spent hours pouring over your list and updating/changing my registry. Thank you SO much for being a lifesaver!

  7. Thank you so so so much for putting this list together! It is one of the most comprehensive and helpful lists I have come across!

  8. All carseats have to meet the same federal standards to be sold. It doesn&#39;t matter that a company claims to put their seats through more stringent testing because there is nothing to compare it to. For all we know every single seat on the market could pass those same tests. The best carseat is the one that fits your baby and your car. So don&#39;t feel bad if you can&#39;t afford the

    1. haha danielle! you are so sweet. thanks and when you do have a little one on the way someday we can nerd out about baby gear together 🙂

  11. this is by far the best list i have run into. i’m a second time mom, but still needed to “double check” my list. lol! very adorable baby by the way!!

    thanks!

  12. I’m in love with this list!! I am 8 weeks as of now and I was feeling very overwhelmed about everything that came with creating a registry, but I’m curious with all these items being at such different locations…Where exactly did you register at?? Do you recommend a place like Amazon or a store that might carry most of these items?? Thanks!!

    1. jessica that’s a GREAT question! i need to address that on this post so i’m so glad you brought it up. i did an amazon registry and loved it. it made returns and tracking what i did/didnt still need SO easy. i highly recommend it!

  13. Hi there!

    Would you be willing to do a product review on our Rip n Go baby or junior lines? We are a new Canadian company, and we invented 100% waterproof detachable bed sheets for babies, toddlers and adult ! We are Eco friendly, which mean our product can be washed and reused. Please email me at Marissa@ripngo.ca if you are interested.

  14. Love this list! This is my second pregnancy and I keep referring back to it! 🙂 I missed so much with my first! Okay so random question- on the side of your blog it has a slideshow of random pictures, and there’s the cutest little white blanket basket thing with gold polka dots that your newborn was in for pictures- where did you get that?! So cute!

    1. hi lauren! the slideshow is from my instagram 🙂 and the gold polka dot blanket & headband are from miss j handmade but she has her shop closed temporarily 🙁 here’s the link so you can bookmark it and check back to see when she repoens: http://www.missjhandmade.com/

  15. Love your registry! I am going to be a 1st time mom in August and have no clue what I’m doing. Is your Maxi Cosi car seat compatible with the City Jogger? I can’t tell from the City Jogger website if they have an adapter for Maxi Cosi.

  16. awesome list. i just wish that you would have the links open in a new tab… i kept going to a website and purchasing the items you suggested, but then had to navigate back to your site somehow

    1. natalie thanks so much for letting me know! i usually make it so the links open up in new pages but today i forgot to do that. i’m going back and fixing that right now. thanks again for commenting and for your readership! 🙂

    1. hey chanel! yes i do – i will add those to the list! thanks so much for asking this! i don’t know why i didn’t do this sooner! 😀

  17. This list saved me time and allowed me to breathe and stay sane! My husband and I are expecting our first child in October and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate the time you took to put this together!!!!! I feel so much better now that I have some info! And the descriptions you gave and the reasons behind why you put them on your list were super helpful! Thanks so much!!!!

    1. jessica i’m so happy this was helpful! congratulations too – i had my baby in october and i think october babies are the best 🙂

  18. I have been so lost on what to add to my baby registry until I found this. Seriously! This is amazing! So many things I would’ve never thought of and such great brand recommendations! Thank you!!

  19. I love this list! Our first baby is due in November and I have been on bedrest my entire pregnancy. I have done exactly zero shopping. Now I know where to start.

  20. Thank you so much! I’m gonna be starting my own family in about a month or so and I’m trying to be the mom that reads up and is prepared but I kept getting so upset by most posts out there for baby registry lists. I’m a nurse and I would get irritated when mom’s would put stupid advice that it would ruin anything I liked about their post. For example I’ve been really stuck about what kind of monitor I want. My sister in law says go simple my mother in law says get video it’s cool to be able to see your baby. And your list has helped out cause a lot of blogs out there say this monitor saved my babies life when they got smothered by their big fluffy blanket IMO as as nurse newborns shouldn’t be sleeping with big fluffy blankets so I felt the advice was useless. Not to bag on other moms that’s not the point lol I’m just trying to say thank you for putting together as list of stuff that makes sense and doing all the research it makes me feel confident in using your list for my registry!

    1. thanks so much anne for the thoughtful and sweet response! i’m so glad this was helpful for you and congratulations on your pregnancy!! XOXO

  21. We just had Baby #4 & I bought new everything. I totally agree with everything on your list BUT I had this Peg Pegero carseat for Baby #3. I thought it was great. Then I bought an Orbit carseat for Baby #4. I LOVE IT! In fact, I had a problem with the Orbit handle. I used my Peg Pegero while they fix it. (Orbit actually sent me a newer mode for free in 2 days because of the problem. They were great to work with). During those few days, I really realized how much I love the Orbit. It’s so easy to get in and out of the car and easy to use with the stroller. Baby can face all directions. The handle is fabric so it doesn’t hurt your arm when you carry it. Love it! Just wanted to let all the moms out there know about it.

    1. that’s awesome michelle! my sister in law has the orbit and really loves it too. i should add it to my list! 😀

  22. Great list! I’m so glad I found it, my little guy is almost ready for a conversion car seat. Two items that we use and love are the Kiinde Kozi bottle warmer and Ubbi diaper pail. The Kiinde has a timer and then drains water into the resivour so the bottle never over heats, it works for bottles or breast milk bags. The Ubbi is a modern metal diaper pail that uses regular garbage bags and we’ve never had an issue with stinky diapers.
    Just wanted to share a few of my favorite items!

  23. Hi Corrine,

    I love the pink ruffled shirt you are wearing at the top (side profile with turquoise pants)! Can I ask where you got it? Thanks! And great job on this list!

    1. thanks so much jenny! the pink ruffle top is actually a little ruffle vest that i bought at H&M a few years ago. 😀

  24. I just spent a few hours updating my registry and I want to thank you so much for posting this. I cross-checked your suggestions with Amazon reviews and in most cases your suggestions led me to better and more affordable products than what I had registered for. I’m a first-time mom with limited space, and this will probably be our only baby – this list is awesome. Thank you again.

  25. This is such an awesome list Corrine…. So helpful for a lost first time mom! This has helped me so much in putting together my registry!
    Do you have any suggestions on Nursing gowns/tops/robes/zippers ? How many and what all should be on our shopping list. I’m not sure what would be most useful.. I’m due in Jan and it’s going to be cold in California..

    1. thank you so much neha! i don’t have any strong suggestions for nursing robes/tops/zippers. i wore a lot of button-downs and things that i could pull down when i nursed. i will have to keep an eye out for anything awesome to add to this list though!

  26. Hi Corrine!

    To say that I adore this list would be an understatement. I’m expecting my 1st child (baby boy, estimated due date Christmas Day) and this list is such a life saver in planning for his arrival. I’m SUCH a planner, and this list makes me feel so much more prepared!! I will for sure share it with all of my Centering girls and any future expecting friends!

    Love your blog!!
    Megan XO

  27. I was really excited to find this list! .. Until I realized I CANT EFFIN READ IT because all the important info is listed in light mint green.

  28. Thanks for the list! I have bookmarked the page so I can refer to it when I start registering. The only thing I was disappointed not to see were cloth diapers, I really want to cloth diaper, but there are SO many choices out there! After seeing how many diapers my sister has bought and thrown into the landfill with her baby, I just can’t imagine disposably diapering twins.

    1. i understand. i just didn’t feel qualified to recommend any because i didn’t use them myself! but i’m so glad the rest of the list was helpful! 😀

  29. I am 20 weeks pregnant with my first and totally overwhelmed with starting a baby registry. THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting this together! I loved reading your comments and the links to Amazon were super easy to help me quickly set up my registry. I love you. You are a saint.

    1. oh thanks so much lynda, i’m so happy to hear it was helpful! and congrats on your first baby!!! it’s the very most wonderful thing ever! XO

  30. Corrine, how has the mattress you bought held up after two years? My mom is telling me that I need to buy one that costs at least $100 to be good quality. I’ve never done this before and don’t believe price always equals the best quality, plus it’s a mattress so I really don’t need top of the line, but I would love to hear if it’s still working well for you. Thanks!

  31. this us so amazing. I am a first time mom and so overwhelmed trying to get the best products. It’s like you shopped for me!

  32. This is AMAZING!! I can only imagine how much time it took to do all of this research. I’m the first of all of my family/friends to have a baby and had NO idea what to do when it came to a registry. A friend sent me this link and I’m so glad she did!! Such a big relief!!!

    1. thanks so much erin! it was definitely a labor of love (no pun intended ha!). i’m so glad it was helpful to you, and congrats on your pregnancy!! 😀

  33. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this together! I need to get cracking on my registry but so far have felt overwhelmed with all the options. I’m finding this post SUPER helpful!

  34. Okay, when I have a baby, I’m not even registering anywhere, I’m just going to send out this list. Okay maybe I’ll register too but that’ll be a backup. Haha

  35. I love this list! I have three kiddos, and used to be all up on all the good gear. With my last one being five, (and most of her things were well used from the older kiddos) I sold or gave away all of it after she was out of the baby stages. We’re going for that 4th little one, and the most info on the newest goodies is super helpful. Totally starting from scratch is going to be both fun and a little crazy!

  36. Corinne, my friend Allison Z. sent me this list last year when I was pregnant. Thank you, thank you for this list — it was so helpful when I was overwhelmed with baby purchases, and I still look at it every once and a while. One thing I wanted to tell you was that the medela instyle is a closed system as well. Nothing goes through the tubes. I was stressed to get it after your review but ordered it through my insurance company and it has been great.

    1. oh i’m so sorry to have stressed you out! so glad to hear it worked out for you, and that this post was helpful! 🙂

  37. Thank you for this list!! Do you recommend getting the 4Moms Mamaroo and the Rock N Play? If you have any updates, please let us know. Thank you!!! By the way, I WISH I were as cute as you prego! You’re adorable!

    1. thanks so much kelly! i’m totally planning on updating this list ASAP, especially after i try out a few new products with the new baby 🙂 i DO love having both the mamaroo and rock n play, because they’re so different! the rock n play is so great for folding flat and throwing in your car for a trip to grandma’s or even lunch over at a friend’s house. it’s super lightweight and travels well. the mamaroo is the mother of all swings though, and with the swinging or rocking or bouncing functions it’s pretty amazing. i wish i could give you a better answer to help pick between one or the other but that’s my honest opinion!! 🙂

  38. thanks for this post! with our second baby coming soon, it’s nice to see what’s new & what works for two! we have the same motorola monitor and are debating about getting a second camera… what did you find works best? thanks!!!

    1. we’ve continued to use our original motorola monitor but we did just get a couple new ones to try. if they end up being better i’ll update my post with new faves! 🙂

  39. FYI there is an oxyclean baby and oxyclean free. Powder and stain remover, they are not as harsh chemicals and of course better for our skin and babies. According to the ewg or ecg website (where you put the names of products and it tells you what grade it is), oxyclean free and baby are and b and normal oxyclean is like grade f.

  40. This is such a great post – thank you so much! Now that you’ve updated, was wondering if you still love the crib mattress you got? I’ve gotten comments from relatives that the mattress on my registry is too cheap and I need to spend more money. Would love your thoughts!

    Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams White Crib Mattress: the #1 rated crib mattress on amazon

    1. hey melissa! i listed that because it was the #1 rated crib mattress but honestly we have a pottery barn crib mattress that i have been very pleased with! but i don’t necessarily think it’s the end-all, be-all. it’s just one i got a good deal on when i was pregnant with my first baby several years ago. sorry i don’t have a more helpful answer!

  41. Thank you so, so much! I am pregnant with my first baby, have minimal clue as to what I’m doing and am just starting to tackle the registry. I feel less overwhelmed and actually more excited to register now that I’ve read your recommendation list. So many cute things! 🙂 Thank you!!!

  42. Hey Corrine! I was just wondering where you got the onesie and the bow Lyla is wearing in your picture above where you guys are in the hospital? Thanks!

  43. We just found out were expecting a girl, not sure if you have a favorite place to find hair bows. Also don’t know if you’ve heard of the puj bath tub and would recommend that over your euro bath like you mentioned??

  44. HI!

    This list has been an incredible life saver! I am 3 months along with my first and was totally overwhelmed by making decisions – thank you thank you!

    Now that you have published and updated this list, are there any other items that haven’t made this cut that you still deem useful? I won’t have the advantage of knowing much before having my first, but I’d love to know if you have any additional thoughts – thank you so much!

    1. hey natashya! i tried multiple products including compression panties and nothing worked for me as well as the belly bandit!

  45. On my third child and I totally agree with a lot of these reviews. It’s been six years since my last baby though, so this is a great reminder of things I still need! Lol!

  46. I’m about to have my first baby and love all these ideas! I’m so nervous about sleep schedules and all that! I hope the book you recommended helps!

  47. Favorite item on the list is hands down Tubby Todd!!!
    We love their products and we are so grateful to have stumbled on them.

  48. Love seeing all your favorites! So much changes every year when it comes to baby gadgets! Thanks for all the 411 on the newest items! My all time favorite is the 4Moms mamaroo. I love putting my babies in it and listening to the sounds myself. Ha

  49. I loved the original best baby registry list for my first born back in 2012 and now this updated one is amazing, for my baby girl due December 1st. I loved the fisher price rock n play and can’t wait to try so many of the new products listed above. Thanks for taking the time to help all the mamas out!

  50. I Hope to try the 4moms mamaroo this time around! My best friend had one with my second and she loved it but she was almost to big when I discovered this! Now with number 3 I hope to try it out! I also feel like you can’t live without aquaphor!! It’s the best for so many things. You have a ton of awesome things listed on here! Can’t waig to try some this time around!

  51. Thank you for this fantastic list!! It really is the list of ALL baby lists! I’ve had three babies and still so many things I haven’t tried and are now on my wish list for baby #4! The top of my list is the Snoo and the DockAtot.

  52. UPPAbaby vista and owelet are my faves on this registry! Thanks for putting this together, it has been so helpful as i prepare to have my first child!

  53. This is an incredible list!!! I am excited to learn from all this and thank you for your time and knowledge you shared to make it easier for me as I prepare for my first baby! My favorite thing is the Willow Pump-seems to be lots of pros!! THANKS!

  54. Ahhh thank you so much! After almost 4 years and 2 miscarriages we are finally adding a 3rd baby to our family. I feel so out of the loop with everything that has changed baby wise! This list is amazing

  55. Love this list so much. My first pregnancy I used the Mother’s Special Oil and I only had stretch marks on places I didn’t use it! Obsessed. Thanks for all the recommendations!

  56. So happy I found your blog! I have been looking EVERYWHERE for good nursing pads! I have to stick a burp cloth in my bra while I’m nursing on the other boob! That’s how bad I leak! So I’m super excited to try the ones you mentioned!! Just added them to my amazon cart!

  57. I have never heard to the Willow before, but now I feel like I need one. I am a nurse and am so concerned about pumping when I go back to work, but I feel like the Willow would make it so easy to pump even if I’m having a crazy day!

  58. Congrats on your girls. I loved this post! Such good info!! I’d love to win the snoo! We’re wxpecting in May. A sleeping baby would be perfect !

  59. My must have item for all three of my babies was the SollyBaby wrap! You get the closeness of holding your baby but it frees up your hands to get things done around the house or play with the other little ones. I have three in three years so the SollyBaby wrap was a life saver!!

  60. i love this entire list! thank you so much for putting this all together. i’m due in February & have started putting my registry together. this is a lifesaver!

  61. This is so nice! I’ve moved so many times I couldn’t keep a lot of my baby stuff for my two boys. This makes me so excited to have another one someday (hopefully a girl)! I cant Wait to maybe purchase the dockatot! Really though such a great list to Go back to for my next one!

  62. The happiest baby is my favorite from your list!! Here’s to hoping we win!!! ♥️♥️ So hard to pick just one thing ahhh!!!

  63. My favorite item ever is definitely the Dockatot! Sleep with a newborn is so tricky and worth every second, the Dockatot was a life saver! Will use it with every baby!

  64. Everything on this list looks amazing! I’m expecting my first in February and the snoo bassinet looks like a miracle worker! I’ll have to dive more into this list to see what I need!

  65. As a first time mother-to-be, having your tried & true, honest reviews are so, so helpful. Navigating this time is so stressful, and there is SO much information out there. This guide is a huge, huge help. Thank you Corinne!

  66. I’m pregnant with my first so I can’t choose a favorite product yet, but I’m adding all these to my registry 😍

  67. This is my first (due 11/30) and this list is SO helpful! I definitely added these things to my registry, especially the Dock-A-Tot!

  68. This list is amazing!!! I want everything on it! Haha 🙂 I’m pregnant with my first and so excited but don’t even know where to start. This is so helpful to look at and such great advice! Thanks for putting this together and what an incredible giveaway!

  69. I’m prego with my first right now and am soooo overwhelmed with everything. THANK YOU for putting so much time and effort into this list and for being so honest about what is a necessity, what’s nice, what you didn’t end up using… It’s so incredibly helpful. I can’t wait to try the Solly wrap! That’s the first thing I thought of when I found out we were expecting haha😊 you’re so wonderful Corrine!

  70. WOW! This list is seriously amazing!! I have so much to learn and this looks like the perfect place to start! Favorite item would have to be the Fawn Design.

  71. This is an amazing list! I am 16 weeks pregnant with my first baby and have been lost in making a registry. Thanks for sharing! I was excited to see that the nuna pipa made the list. We just got one from Nordstrom and I can’t wait to see her cuteness in it!

  72. Oh my goodness I don’t think I can pick a favorite. Been DYING to try the Snoo and I have heard so many good things about it! Also love the gathre mats! Due with baby boy in March!

  73. Love this list!! I’m a first time mom with baby on the way so this is very helpful! It’s hard to pick just ONE favorite but I will say I love the solly baby wrap! All their wraps are so cute and I love the idea of wrapping my baby up snug to my chest 🙂

  74. This is amazing! One thing I didn’t have and would LOVE is the snoo! That bassinet looks like a real life dream!!! Sleep is so underrated!!

  75. So many amazing products, hard to pick the best! I would have loved to have some of these products at my house, and even more possible. I teach fourth grade and the Willow Pump would be my top pick! Every minute counts when you teach and have little ones at home. Would LOVE to have the hands-free option!

  76. This list is amazing! I am pregnant with baby #2 and can’t wait to try so many of these! Your original list was a lifesaver when I had my first baby, particularly the mama recovery parts! (thank you mint arrow and colace! haha!) the dock a tot was probably my favorite! we loved it especially when we first brought him home, it kept him snug and safe right next to me so I could sleep while he did!

  77. How fun is this! I have followed you before you had your last baby. I have ordered some of the things you have used and love everything you suggest. I have been looking into the willow and would love it now I’m back to work!!!!! Thank you for putting this on! Hope I win!!!!

  78. I love my solly wrap so much! It was such a life saver those first 9 months especially! I’ll know it’ll come in even more handy with baby #2 🙂

  79. This list is really impressive! My favorite would probably be the Happiest Baby Snoo since we really struggled with getting our first babe to sleep and stay asleep when she was first born!

  80. The jogger system and breast pump look AMAZING! I would honestly love to try all of them though. Let’s be honest.

  81. Wow! This is the list of all lists!! I’m on my third baby (due in Jan) and even after having 2 kids this was super helpful!

  82. I have used your list for all my babies and so excited for an update for my upcoming! I would love to try the willow pump!

  83. What an amazing list!!! Such a great guide for a soon to be mom!
    I love so many things of these things! I recently got myself a Nesting olive dress and ahhhhmazing! Thanks for all of your great recommendations!

  84. This list is beyond amazing and helpful. Thank you for recommending the Newman’s nipple cream. I had a nightmare of an experience nursing my 3rd and was terrified to nurse my 4th. That nipple cream saved me. Thank you, thank you!
    Also, Fawn design diaper bags are the best!

  85. I love this registry!!! Baby girl is due in January and I don’t feel prepared at all! This would be such a blessing to our family!!

  86. Just found out we are pregnant and I cannot wait to get started with your list! THANK YOU!! And I’m super excited for the dock a tot!

  87. I’ve been waiting for this list. Used it so much for my first 4 years ago and an update just in time for my 3rd. Most excited about the Snoo. Anything that helps baby slee is a must!

  88. Goodness gracious I love all of these company’s soo much! I love mebie baby & their prices and design. I seriously love everything so good! These are all incredible!

  89. Ok so many things I registered for from this. I’ve heard those swaddles are amazing! Excited to try the bottles as well. I’m going to be a working mama so the willow pump seems like a must! Thanks so much for your help!

  90. This list is PERFECT! We’re expecting in March after struggling with infertility & miscarriage! We just found out it’s a little girl and we are beside ourselves with so much joy! I love EVERYTHING on this list but would love the Snoo & also that Willow pump looks amazing! Ahhh! It’s so hard to pick just one thing! They’re all amazing.

  91. I’m pregnant with my 3rd baby, and there’s a 6 year gap between my last child and our new baby due in Dec. I definitely think there are so many cool new baby stuff available now! My new favorite baby registry item is the dockatot!! Thank you for compiling this amazing list! You’re awesome!

  92. Wow! What an amazing list! This will be my first baby and I’m feeling clueless! Super excited to pour over this list! The snoo sounds like a must have!

  93. Thank you for this post! I feel no matter the number there’s always something new and improved by the time a next baby comes! I personally love my Fawn Design bag! But SO many things I really hope to try! One being the willow pump and the snoo, I’ve heard great things!

  94. The Munchkin Diaper Pail is a must in our house! Who wants their home to smell like dirty diapers!? This was the only thing that eliminated all diaper odor for us.

  95. I love this list!!! Our second little is arriving in just a few weeks! We love the mebie swaddles too! So soft and big!

  96. Such an incredible giveaway! How do you pick just one favorite item?! Baby products are my favorite!! We are welcoming baby #2 in December and this would be so perfect to win! Fingers crossed!

  97. Just found out I’m pregnant and I love everything on your list!! The fawn design bag, the snoo, those bottles and everything else looks amazing!! Thank you thank you for this list

  98. This give away is SO exciting! I am pregnant with my 5th baby and feel like most of my baby items are used up and outdated. My favorite item on the list would be the baby jogger and car seat. Each item seems like such quality and so helpful. It will bless the life of whoever wins. Bless you and all involved for doing a give away!

  99. Honestly I would love all of these baby products! I currently have my eye on a few must have products from your list, I’m just waiting (as patiently as possible for me) to get pregnant.

  100. This is an awesome list! My favorite is the Dockatot. I’ve heard a lot of great things about it and have been wanting to get one!

  101. Bless your heart…the thought and time you took to share your advice and experience with mom’s and those to be. I am a grandma to-be and will be sending this to my newly pregnant daughter. I have so much to relearn myself after 22 years. I do love the Fawn diaper bags! So stylish yet functional at the same time!

  102. I am so excited to learn more about the Snoo! My babies always have reflux and it sounds like it would be so helpful for sleeping.

  103. This is so helpful!! My favorites from our first baby that are on the list are definitely the solly baby wrap and the Fischer price rocknplay. But I can’t wait to try some more of these suggestions for our next!!!

  104. There’s sooo many amazing items on the list! I’d say my most desired would be a dock a tot or the city select stroller!

  105. So many great things! Third baby due in a month and there’s so much I need to update! Going to try the belly band you recommended.

  106. So helpful!! My babe is just 8 weeks and we could not live without our dock a tot. She finally sleeps 6+ hour a night now!!🙌🏻

  107. Getting ready to have baby #2 and am so thankful to see this list! Saw many of my favs on here, plus I have a friend who has been following you for awhile, she’s gradually changed some of my inventory to some of your favorites and I haven’t been let down once! Can’t wait to trade out stuff from baby #1 with some of your suggestions for baby #2!

  108. I’m pregnant with my first child and I have been clueless when it comes to my registry! Thank you for sharing your list. I really like the Baby Jogger.

  109. Thank you for this post!! Used your initial when I was pregnant with my first and have enjoyed this update as I am pregnant with my second. Love the mother’s special blend oil. Didn’t get a single stretch mark with my first and it’s looking that way with my second. Thanks again!!

  110. I love all of these things!! It makes me want a girl so badly!!! I want to try the SNOO!! My baby was so ROUGH for the first while, so that would be a game changer!!

  111. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my baby jogger city select lux stroller! My 2 week old babe falls asleep every time we go for a walk in the stroller. I also got the nuna pipa lite lux carseat and I couldn’t be happier. It is so soft and light and I love the canopy. Thanks for the blog post, I’ve looked at it so many times. It is hard to choose just one of my favorite products from your list!

  112. Thank you for this list! I’m preparing for my 3rd son and am so excited to update my baby must haves based on your suggestions! My favorite thing with my oldest two was definitely my ergo! It’s a lifesaver to be able to be handsfree when you’ve got more than one kid running around : )

  113. Corrine, what an awesome and thought out list for new moms. My daughter is about the have her first baby and a lot has changed in the 20+ years since I’ve had a baby! 🤪 Thank heavens for the time and effort you’ve put in to helping young mothers.!! Adore you!! Can’t wait to be a grada! Xoxo

  114. this list is amazing!!! Thank you so so so much for putting this list 🙏🏼❤️I am pregnant! Baby # 2 a baby girl and a i have a 3 years old boy 😍

  115. I love our Boon high chair! It was great for a small apartment and perfect for our house. I love that it has wheels so you can move it anywhere in the kitchen/dining area with ease!

  116. Thanks so much for all your baby advice!! I am a new to be Momma next month and your blog and Instagram have helped prepare me for whatbis about to come!! I love all your pics of your sweet babygirls!

  117. This list is amazing — the Dockatot saved my sanity with my last baby, who would only sleep in my arms the first few weeks! I’m due in a month and would be so thrilled to win these amazing items, and to give the Dockatot and more to my cousin who is also expecting!

  118. Thank you for this list! It has been so helpful as I’ve been putting together a registry for my first! I was sooo hoping you would update with your third little one, and I’m very thankful you did! We are supposed to comment our favorite item, and I can’t wait to try them all but I’ve been using Tubby Todd Mama Oil on my belly to (fingers crossed!) prevent stretch marks, and I just love it so I know I’ll be using Tubby Todd when my little one gets here! I would LOVE to win your giveaway!

  119. First off, congratulations fellow mama!! Secondly, this list is unreal. I’ve researched for endless hours on the best products to help soothe the little one, and still provide some ease on the parents. I couldn’t possibly choose between just one, but if I had to probably the mamaroo since I love the way it’s supposes to mimic the motions experienced in utero. Just hit 31 weeks, and couldn’t be more excited to meet babygirl!

  120. I am 34 weeks pregnant with twins! My youngest is 8 1/2 so we are literally starting over so this would be a dream to win any of the items on this list! I do love the Fawn bags! I think they are amazing and so functional! Thank you for the giveaway:)

  121. This couldn’t have come at a better time as I’m creating my registry! Dying to try the SNOO…will do anything for sleep 🙂

  122. As a first time mom (to be) I have never personally tried any of these items for my baby. But baby girl comes March and I am beyond happy to have this registry list to help me out! Before, I was so overwhelmed with all the bassinet options and I must say on this list the Snoo looks pretty amazing!

  123. Your registry helped so much with my first baby and now that I’m having #3 I’m back for more tips! My favorite was probably the ergo 360. Lifesaver for grocery shopping and any errands.

  124. LOVE my solly wrap and dawn design bag. Hope to try some of these other products- especially if I win! 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻

  125. Such a great list! I’ve regustered for so much of this! Particularly excited for the mamaroo and dawn design bag!

  126. I cannot wait to buy the 4moms mommaroo! I think that’ll be my favorite out of everything we have for this growing bundle of joy inside of me!

  127. Such amazing suggestions!!! I’m really torn on my favorite item- I’d have to go with either the mamaroo or the willow pump! The mamaroo was a lifesaver with my first, but with a 1 year old and baby #2 on the way I’m thinking the willow pump is a necessity! I pumped exclusively for a year with my first, and I am certain a handsfree pump would make life so much easier with two babies!!

  128. This was so amazing and crazy helpful! I’m 31 weeks with my first and although I have my registry pretty complete, seeing this is so helpful! Lots of things to add/change and reliable things I can buy for myself! Just reading your input on things has taken my stress level down a knotch! Thank you, thank you!

  129. This is a dream come true for any mom but especially being a new mom this would make everything that much better.
    I am most excited about the dockatot – my baby is having a hard time sleeping and I borrowed my friends dockatot and he loved it! I am praying that I win!!!

  130. This list is incredible and oh so helpful! There are so many awesome things that I’ve used and plan to use with baby number two. My favorite item on the list (for selfish reasons) is the toning oil. As someone who grew up with stretchmarks on my sides from growing so fast, I thought for sure I would get them all over my stomach during my pregnancy. It worked like a charm with my first baby as I didn’t get a single stretch mark. You better believe the second I found out I was pregnant with baby number two, I ordered it again STAT!

  131. Everything on this list looks like a must-have!!! My favorite one has gotta be the Snoo because I’ve heard it is a life saver when trying to get your baby to sleep! In turn letting the mama get sleep too.

  132. Omg i need this so bad!!!!!!! The willow pump!!! Perfect for working moms!!! I love it, need it, pretty, pretty please!

  133. Most of these products are outside of our family’s budget. So, I’d be grateful to try any. Mostly the dockotot, tho. 🤗

  134. Love the solly wrap, ergo, city select stroller, & the comotomo bottles! Love your list & excited to check out everything!

  135. Wow, this is the ultimate survival list! I’m unexpectedly expecting #3 which will give me three ages three and under. This list has everything I could possibly need to make this crazy time as manageable as possible. That Snoo bassinet seems like a dream come true!!

  136. The Snoo is by far what I am most excited about! I have heard rave reviews about it and would love to try one! Everything in this registry is definitely a MUST HAVE!

  137. This would be such a blessing! I have 3 kids and have been trying for a very long time to have baby number 4. Well, now that my baby is almost 6 I gave most of my baby things away. Well, I am finally pregnant and I don’t own any of the necessities. I would love the amazing carseat. I never have owned a breast pump and that would be incredible! Everything, honestly, would be so exciting for me to own! I love it all! I have other ranting and raving about the fawn diaper bag and the sling carriers. Oh wow! This would be such a tender mercy! I love that yoi give back so much!!

  138. i love the new updates to your list! Thank you for doing the footwork and sharing all your favorites with us all! My favorites from your list are the Mothers Special blend body oil (used it with my last two pregnancies!), the swaddle blankets (you really can never have enough!), and the extra long iPhone charger! I referred to this list many times prepping for our new 3rd little lady!

  139. I love this list and direct all my friends who are having babies here! I remember the first time I saw your list I felt like I had written it because I completely agreed so now with my 3rd due in December I know I can trust your list! Also, I can’t live without that Solly wrap!

  140. This is a great list – thank you for updating. The Snoo is my favorite product. I hope we are able to get one when our first arrives

  141. This list was AMAZING! Im a mom of 2 and i still learned so much! Its so hard sorting through all that different brands of everything and it can get so stressful and overwhelming! Ill definitely use this list as we are trying for baby #3 💙

  142. This registry is everything I’ve been checking out, especially the Willow! Love the idea of card free. Thank you so much for putting this together

  143. I dont know how people live without a rock n play. I didnt have it on my registry (fail) but a fellow new mom got it for me anyway. It’s now my go to baby shower gift. Cant live without it for the first few months. Especially if you have older siblings and you need to quickly have a safe spot for the babe.

  144. It would be a dream to own all these items, especially the Snoo and the Willow Pump! Anything that makes a mom’s life easier is worth it! This is such a great list of all the best baby gear!!

  145. I so needed this list! I am due with baby # 3 in April and it has been 4 years since our last baby so I have a lot of stocking up to do! I’m especially excited about the snoo!! Thanks for the recommendations ❤️

  146. Thank you SO much for this post! Baby #2 is coming next month and i feel completely lost at what she’s gonna need besides the obvious basics! I have the Solly wrap & the comotomo bottles on my registry! I couldn’t live without my rock n play for our first babe and I’m sure it’ll be the same with our second!

  147. I’m a new mama to be, so this is incredibly helpful! I love your tips throughout the list as much as I love seeing the products. Thanks for this!

  148. First time momma and I’m due in January! I’m supposed to comment what my favorite item on a baby registry is, so far muslin blankets!!

  149. I love this list and have added so much to my amazon registry! I loved the nosefrida with my son and it is a must have in my opinion.

  150. This is truly a dream list for baby! I’m a first time mom and overwhelmed by wanting the best for baby but not always having it in the budget. Would be crazy awesome to get some of these items for our sweet little miracle baby!

  151. Your baby list is amazing! Definitely going to be updating my registry. My favorite thing on the list being the Happiest Baby Snoo. I wish they made an adult size in that. Lol

  152. This list! All the heart eyes! Winning even half of this list would be an absolute dream come true. I am drooling over the thought of having a snoo, but more importantly the willow pump. I would do anything to be able to breast feed this new baby, and that pump might be my best chance.

  153. I’m 17 weeks pregnant and this post was HEAVEN to read. Thank you for all the information! Xoxoxox I cannot wait for my baby to be here!

  154. I love this post! I’m having a little boy in January after 3 years of trying. We have a girl who will turn 5 in January and I feel like I’m starting all over. We loved the Miracle Blanket with our first. I’m getting another one for this one!

  155. I definitely hope to have a Willow Pump someday! Pumping can be so tough, especially when I’m at work and it requires an entire extra backpack of equipment. Definitely my favorite item on the list!

  156. I am!! 17 weeks pregnant and I am SO happy!!!!!!! Thank you for listing everything out so perfectly!!!! Xoxoxoxoxoxozoz

  157. Ok I don’t have a favorite item on your list because I’m a new mom (currently pregnant) but I’m dying to try the mommaroo. I’ve heard So man good things about it. Everything on your list looks so needed.

  158. This list is awesome! My daughter is four now but planning to have another baby so this was helpful! I really like the spectra pump.

  159. One of my favorite and most helpful blog post! So happy to see it got updated! I love the PUJ for bath time because my hips have not got back ‘into place’ yet and I don’t think I could bend over by the tub right now! And I would love to try the dolly wrap and of course the SNOO! Great post, thank you!

  160. I love the updated list! I’m due in a month, so this is extremely helpful for a first time mama like myself. I can’t wait to try out the dockatot – I’ve heard great things about it!

  161. Great list! I am planning for baby 3 and there’s a lot on here I didn’t have for the first two. Heaven knows I need anything that will make life a little easier with the third.

  162. Thank you for putting this together! We’re getting ready to meet our little girl in a few days and I am going to try a lot from your list! One item that I cannot live without is Tubby Todd EVERYTHING. Both of my boys have eczema and nothing has helped it more than their all over ointment and body wash. LOVE!

  163. Love this thank you so much for putting this together! I love my specta pump and just ordered a few of the pacifiers that you recommended.

  164. This is the best list! We are jumping back into the world of babies after 6 years! I need a whole refresh on our baby supplies! Love the car seat options.

  165. Baby stuff can be so overwhelming! I’ve heard the snoo is magical!! I had a rough sleeper for my first one. Hopefully baby 2 will be better I don’t know if I could handle it being that rough again!!

  166. This seriously is the best list ever!! We love the City Select, Rock N Play, Milk snob cover, Sophie the giraffe, and literally everything else you listed. Thank you for all your hard work compiling it all!

  167. Love love love this baby must have list! For a first time mom this is GOLD. Thank you so much for taking time and making this. Making adjustments to my registry’s now. 😊😘 #5moreweeks

  168. Oh my goodness the Snoo bassinet looks amazing! I’m a first-time mom (19 weeks) and already feel overwhelmed by all the decisions to make, so this list is very helpful!! 💕

  169. This list is amazing and I can’t wait to use it with the arrival of our second. We love our City Select too! And I can’t wait to give the Willow pump a try too!

  170. This is such an amazing list!! I’m expecting #3. I’m most excited about the Willow pump. I’m a working mom and my medela is almost 6 years old and I’m afraid it won’t make it through this baby. I’ve been so curious about the Willow pump- so thank you for the review!!

  171. I love this list! As a first time mom-to-be, it’s so hard to narrow down all the options out there! I want to try the fawn design diaper bag and the dockatot!

  172. Thank you so much for the list! The list has been very helpful as I’ve been getting ready. I am due to meet my little boy in March! Thanks again!

  173. Thank you so much for this list! I’m expecting #3 and I am most excited about the willow pump. I’m a working mom and I’ve had my medela pump for almost 6 years and I’m afraid it won’t make it through this third child. I’ve been so curious about the Willow pump- so thank you for your review!!

  174. I absolutely LOVE the mamaroo. So many of my friends have one and now I have one too and I’m so excited to use it for my sweet baby due in March! I’ve let a few relatives try it out on their new babies and they are hooked too. It’s amaz!

  175. I LOOOOOOVE the Solly wrap. I used it with my babes and right now I am using it with my friends’ baby, who I watch 2x a week.

  176. I love a lot of things on this list, but my favorite would have to be the City Select Stroller! Hands down, it is the best baby purchase I have made. I was initially concerned that it was going to be a pain to take the seats off and put it away, but it is surprisingly quick and easy! It also is not as heavy to push as most double strollers are–even some single strollers. I could go on forever because I love it so much!

  177. I’m excited to try the como tomo bottles! My first baby is due this Saturday (the 27th) so I can’t say that I love a product YET, but I’m especially excited to try those since I’m wanting to breastfeed and keep bottles as close to that as I can. Love this list! It’s been so helpful.

  178. SO good! Your original registry helped me when preparing for my first babe in 2015. Now getting ready to welcome my second and I ‘ve just read through this entire post..twice. My favorite items are the belly oil and swaddles! but i put so many of these items on my list to buy! Thanks Corrine xx

  179. As a soon-to-be new mom I’m not sure what my favorites are but I’m really excited to try the dock-a-tot and would love to try the city select stroller!!

  180. This is such an incredible list. I have 3 boys expecting my 4th and i wish i had all of these things back with my first! Dock-a-tot is incredible i got to borrow one from a friend after having a rough recovery and surgery and while i hope i dont have to repeat the craziness having one of those and the snoo would be incredible! Such great thing for those roller coaster months.

  181. Love this list has everything I always wanted from the dok a tot to the mamaroo just exciting to pin this registry list.

  182. I love Baby Jogger! I have added all of the products to my list for my rainbow baby! Thank you for putting this together!

  183. This is an amazing giveaway. Everything looks amazing! I would love the city mini travel system. My car seat is expired and I don’t have a stroller for the new baby.

  184. My favorite item from the giveaway is the Happiest Baby Snoo! I have always wanted this bassinet but it’s just so crazy expensive! Thank you for hosting such an awesome and generous giveaway!

  185. I love my Fawn Design diaper bag in light grey! I have a 2 year old and a 25 week old in the belly! Excited for all of these good ideas!

  186. I would love a Fawn design bag and the Dock a Tot for this new baby coming in January! Such a great giveaway! Also I’m pretty sure I went on spring break with your husband Neil back in 2005 😂 Small world!

  187. This list is amazing!! Most of these items are on my “must have” list, and now I’ve added a few more because of this! The Snoo… That’s a dream item! I’ve been eyeing that for a while! And the Willow Pump!! That is the most brilliant breast pump I’ve ever seen! I would LOVE those! All of the items are amazing ♥️. Thanks for creating this!

  188. Pregnant with babe number three and this list is such a lifesaver!! It’s only been 4 years since my last was a wee babe, but I feel like everything has changed and there are so many new, amazing products out there. I’ve been so overwhelmed with knowing what I need this time around, now I have this as a resource! I have to say, my fav thing from my last pregnancy was my Solly. It was something that I wouldn’t have wanted to do without. I can’t wait to get one for this babe!! Thank you so much for such a detailed list for new [and not so new] Mama’s!
    xoxo

  189. I would just die having the hands free pump! 🍼 and being able to do more than just pump and scroll Instagram would be a dream to these tired eyes! XO

  190. I’m about to have my fourth and seriously nothing I’ve been as grateful to have as my Braun ear thermometer and NoseFrida!! We use the thermometer for every member of the family and the NoseFrida SAVED my sanity when I had a two-week old with a cold! I buy everyone I know one or the other for new babies.

  191. Congratulations! And thank you for the detailed recommendations and fabulous giveaway! I would love to try the Snoo and Dockatot for baby #2 arriving at Christmastime!!

  192. My favorite item from this giveaway is the stroller! Strollers are hard to navigate and to tell which is good or not. Thank you for making such an elaborate post, it’s very helpful for my wife and I!

  193. Dying to try the happiest baby snoo!! Heard so many great things about it! Due with our first in May 🤗 thanks for this amazing opportunity!

  194. This is amazing and so helpful as I’m getting ready to have my first baby in Feb! Making a baby registry has consumed hours of my time! Its been really fun, but it can be overwhelming! I love the Mebie swaddles and the Gathre mats!

  195. I’m becoming a new mom, so honestly any of these would be amazing! After reading all the reviews i would be blessed to win even one!

  196. Perfect timing for this as our little guy arrives in a few weeks! I love it all, but am most excited about the housedress since it seems so cute and comfortable for before/after baby, as well as during the hospital stay.

  197. The Happiest Baby SNOO looks amazing! praying I win this for our soon to be little babe because we are young poor college students! Loved this post!

  198. I love everything from this list!! If I could I would give every single thing on this list to my daughter 😭😍 it’s just all so useful and too cute!!

  199. New mom here and I can’t say how grateful I am for this post!!! I went through your original list and added everything to my registry and now I’m spending tonight going through this one to update my registry! Can’t wait to order that boon high chair-I think it will be my favorite too. 🙂

  200. City select stroller I’ve been really interested in for my newborn and toddler! My newborn currently loves her Dockatot! Love this list!

  201. This list is absolute perfection! thank you so much for taking the time to create such a gem! My favorite thing to try would be the snoo bassinet! Your recommendations are always top notch!

  202. This is an amazing list! I’m pregnant with my 3rd and there are so many things on this list I wish I had with my first two. Now I can enjoy many of these items with my 3rd baby. Thank you.

  203. Such a great list! My baby is due any day now, and I’ve already gotten many things from your list! My favorite so far is the pottery barn glider, so comfy! Can’t wait to use everything once baby girl gets here!

  204. Thanks so much for this list. Although, I’m pregnant expecting our second child. we are now having a girl and excited to purchase some thing brand new for her! Loving the nesting bed/bassinet!

  205. This is the best baby registry list ever! Love so many of the things on here….

    Tubby todd is definitely one of my favorites!

  206. The dock a tot and rock n play we’re the most used in our house. Nothing better then something that will help out a sleep deprived mama!

  207. I’m almost due with my 4th and it’s crazy that a lot of these items I’ve never used. I’ve screened shot so many of your suggestions over the past couple months, just so I wouldn’t forget them, and be able to get them myself. Thanks for all the great tips!

  208. This list is super helpful. Shopping for everything baby is so overwhelming for me. There are so many options that it’s hard to know what to get, so thanks for doing all the heavy lifting. Speaking of which, I’m due in December and have had some tricky back problems this pregnancy. I’ve been super stressed about carrying a 20 lb car seat. I was thrilled to see that you posted a much lighter 5 lb option. Phew! That will save me. Thanks again!

  209. This is amazing! So helpful! Can’t wait to go back and read it again and again when I’m curious about a certain product. Thanks so much for doing this. I think my favorite product would be the Happiest Baby Snoo!

  210. Okay I’m due in January and have seriously been eyeing each and every one of these things!! There’s SO many new things since I’ve had my last!!! Can’t wait❤️❤️❤️

  211. Oh my goodness, i’m Obsessed! There’s soooo many things I would looove to have off this registry. When I had my first son who’s now going to be 2 next week, we could barely afford anything nice and hardly got anything off my registry. Now we have baby number 2 joining us in February, which is a sweet baby girl, Rylee Grace 💗 I have really been wanting a momaroo this time around and would absolutely 100% cherish everything on this dream registry 😍

  212. I really want a fawn design bag! I’ve always wanted one after having my baby girl I want one because it holds so much stuff and it’s super cute!!

  213. I arrive. uedtro blessed moment! After reading this article and see the list of all recommendations, we think we should be ready and informed for our baby, we are sure that soon we will be pregnant and we will celebrate winning these awards with all of you, Thanks for the opportunity to earn all this !!!! Thanks for you Help!!!!

  214. What a list!! I’m due in March with baby #2 and the list is EVERYTHING!! My favorite item is the SNOO bassinet, IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for the opportunity of such a life changing giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  215. I’ll be a first time mom early February and with so many different brands it’s overwhelming to know where to start to prepare for baby! It’s brands like you that I trust not only in your product but it all the ones you recommend! I would be so grateful to win any of these amazing baby items. Mama roo especially!!

  216. I would LOVE to try the SNOO bassinet! After losing a baby, I am extra anxious about my future daughters safety. This bassinet would help me sleep at night knowing that she is sleeping safely next to me without the fear of her rolling over in her sleep!

  217. I used your baby registry list 6 years ago and these new adds are spot on. I love tubby Todd, solly wraps, and i can’t wait to try the snoo and willow the next time around!

  218. this is so awesome! Due with our 4th baby in February but haven’t bought much new stuff since baby # !. The snoo sounds so so amazing! But for sure hoping to get a dockatot and fisher price Rock n Play with this one!

  219. What an amazing list! Due with baby #2 in January and this was super helpful to read through. Thanks For putting this together! My favorite baby item from my first babe was the halo sleep sack, but I’ve heard the Snoo is a game changer!

  220. This registry is amazing!! Everything you need as a new mom!! I’m going to start a family soon and I feel these are truly all the essentials!! Thank you for putting this together!

  221. Thanks so much for sharing!! Seriously obsessing over everything on your list!! I’m due with my first baby boy in March and this list made creating my registry so much helpful! I’m definitely intrigued by the happiest baby bassinet seems so amazing!

  222. So hard to pick one favorite! So many amazing items and many I haven’t tried yet. Feeling cute while pregnant can be tricky sometimes, I couldn’t live without those maternity skinny jeans!

  223. So much good info on this post!! If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Snoo Bassinet- I’m pregnant with my first and so intrigued by it and have heard amazing things!

  224. The Snoo is by far my favorite item on this list!! My husband and I have done a ton of research and we think it’s the best!! Would die for one!!!

  225. So many of these items are on my registry!!! The one I am most interested in learning more about and trying out is the Happiest Baby bassinet!!

  226. All of these tips!! 😍😍 my favorites to try would be the light weight car seat, ASOS maternity dresses 👗 and the self rocking/white noise bassinet, like what?!? This is such a detailed post! Thank you for sharing this!!

  227. Oh my gosh, this really is the BEST baby registry list ever! I wish I would have found this before my daughter was born! Love love love Tubby Todd, it’s a total lifesaver 🙌🏻💕

  228. I love the Dockatot! I think it would have helped me a ton with my first child. I cant wait to get it for my second child!

  229. My favorite 2 items from the best baby registry are the Dreft detergent & the Freshly Picked Moccasins! I used both (still do!) with my first child & cant wait to use both with my second daughter due in March!

  230. My favorite item is definitely the Dock a tot, and tubby Todd, and silly baby, and gathre…. okay maybe I can’t choose just one!

  231. Loved reading and looking up everything on the list! I’ll be a first time mama to a baby girl at the end of December and I’ve been stressed to know what to get. Love reading your posts and being apart of your Facebook group!

  232. Tubby Todd’s All Over Ointment has been an absolute revelation for my toddler’s eczema!! I’m dying to get that Willow Pump for baby #2 in the spring. As a working mama, that would be a lifesaver!!!

  233. Thank you so much for posting these! I’m pregnant with my third and feel like SO many new and helpful products have come out over the recent years! I’ve heard about most of the products on the list and would LOVE to try the Snoo! All the products seem amazing though! Anything to make mom and newborn life easier ❤️🙌🏻! Fingers crossed big time!

  234. Love the Fawn Design bag & Solly Baby weals – sooo good! I’ve e heard amazing things about the Snoo and Willow Pump as well. Such a helpful list you’ve compiled – thank you, thank you!!

  235. Due with #2 TOMORROW! 😬 I’d love to try the Snoo but would be happy with any of the items listed since they’re all on the top of my list! Thanks for the opportunity!

  236. My most favorite item on this registry list is the willow pump hands down! I have had 2 babies that were born with out the ability to latch on and nurse and I exclusively pumped for both of them! This pump would be a tremendous game changer in pumping, soooo much freedom!! I never had that luxury with the other pumps I went through while exclusivly pumping for my girls.

  237. My favorite baby item would be dockatot and fawn design diaper bag. Would love to win these so bad! Thanks for the chance though!

  238. Love, love, love this list and how thorough your recommendations are! It’s so difficult to make a registry and have peace of mind that you are making good decisions for a little human youvhavent even met yet who will have their own likes and dislikes. I appreciate this more than you know!

  239. That Fawn Diaper Bag is what DREAMS are made of! Getting ready for our first baby due January 4… sweet little Capri Monet and we can’t wait! I definitely need that diaper bag in blush! Beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

  240. I love love this post! Everything is so classy and pairs well with my current style! Expecting my first little baby, Benjamin, this Christmas 2018! Couldn’t be more excited, and loving all of the great tips and products you have and recommend! ❤️💙

  241. I’m most excited about the willow pump! It looks so convenient and easy to clean I would love to have that part of my every day breast pumping routine! It seems amazing just like everything else on the list!!

  242. I saved for months to get the dock a tot. I had to really stick to it because we couldn’t afford it. I was able to save just enough before our little cane and it’s been the best investment ever. Thank you.

  243. This registry list is awesome! I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have the willow pump so I can chase my toddler while pumping for baby#2 😁

  244. Ergo baby carrier is my fav. I’ve seen a few people I follow have them and love their style.

    Really all of it though. I’m newly expecting baby number #2 and dreaming about what I want!!!

  245. My husband and I are starting our family soon and we can barely afford to have a baby as he is a medical student! So I’m always keeping my eye out for discounts and deals on baby products to help us get ready to welcome our babies into the world. I think my favorite item would definitely be the solly wrap. I have heard nothing but glowing reviews!! I am so thankful that you work so hard to put these lists and registries together for us – moms and soon to be moms included!

  246. The SollyBaby wrap and the DockATot are my baby must haves. Used them for all three of my babies and they were life savers!

  247. I used this baby registry list with my first baby to get the best advice and products and I am SO glad I did! We bought so many great quality products and we will be able to use with our second baby coming in January. I am excited to try out some of the new products you are recommending this time around. My favorite purchase we made from your registry list was the Nuna Pipa car seat. It was so lightweight, best quality out there, and worth every dollar spent.

  248. We are due with our second boy any day now and I just love all of these suggestions! I think the Willow pump looks so stinking cool ❤️

  249. I loved the solly baby wrap with my last baby! There are so many things from this list that I am excited to try with this next baby!

  250. So I am pregnant with my third babe. As a veteran mom I can honestly say Honest Diapera and Tubby Todd are the best things ever created to make moms job easier. My little dudes (fingers cross this little one is going to wear flowers and bows) have super sensitive skin. The only things I could put on their bodies were honest diapers and tubby Todd everything. Best items by far to keep this mama calm and out of the ER with flaming hot bums and peeling skin.

  251. I love the baby registry list. I was looking snuggles and other stuff you put it. Perfect timing. My second baby is coming soon. Thank you for sharing this. You are the best

  252. Oh my gosh, this is WONDERFUL! I first came across your original registry list when I was pregnant with my daughter Kennedy a couple years ago. I’m now pregnant with our second (due in April) and am so thankful for the updated post as so many things have changed in just a couple of years! I’ve been following you for years and I just adore you!

  253. Tubby Todd is my soon to be favorite for the new baby. I just ordered the mama box and the belly oil is heavenly! If only I could have a huge bottle of it. The hand lotion is amazing, amazingly smooth and hydrating. I will defiantly be looking back to order again and get their breast cream for breast feeding, it’s currently out of stock so they have lowered their price of the mama box. It definitely is worth treating your self too. Can’t wait to try their other products for my new baby.

  254. This “labor of love” registry has all the things! I am so impressed with everything listed for a new mom and preparing for baby to enter the world. Reading your honest reviews and suggested products from everything to a great nursing bra (because who doesn’t need this!) to new innovations such as the Snoo Bassinet. It can be so challenging as a new mother to navigate what are products to try and your guide has really helped me plan for our baby coming in June! I honestly am looking forward to the highly sought after Willow pump – who doesn’t love cordless! Thank you for taking the time to collaborate this amazing list and thank you to your friend Robin for inspiring it so soon!

  255. I just stumbled on your account yesterday! I’m so happy I did💗 I’ve heard about a few of the things on your baby list but was so grateful for the other recommendations. Especially the affordable ones, with hubby in flight school- gotta love student loans. The Snoo bassinet looks like a dream!!! I also love Doddle and co and solly baby! Thank you for this labor of love, you’re helping a lot of mamas!

  256. What a timely and helpful list! I’m due (tomorrow!) with my 1st, but I haven’t bought a whole lot yet because 1) we’re having a surprise- we don’t know yet whether this little one is a boy or girl and 2) we’re planning on moving by the end of the year. Anyway, although simple I’m excited about the Solly wrap because it will be harder to pass a newborn around when it’s attached to you and I don’t really want to pass my baby around a whole lot during the flu season we’re about to enter. Maybe I’m a little selfish too, because I want all the snuggles I can get!

  257. All of hear products are amazing!!! The willow pump would be a game changer, the docatot would be amazing and the snoo 😍😍 I want all the things!!!

  258. I was so excited to get the email for this post! It’s my favorite work of yours! My favorite things from this list would be the Boon Flair highchair and the Fawn Design diaper bag. SO GOOD! The diaper bag looks so luxe and roomy enough!

  259. I have been dreaming about the Willow breast pump ever since I first heard of it. I lost one of the pieces to my traditional pump so I can only pump one side at a time…not that I ever have time to sit down and connect myself to all those tubes anyway. Without fail, EVERY TIME I start to pump my baby needs a diaper change, or is hungry, or spits up, or gets fussy and wants held, or I forgot my drink, or need something from the other room, I mean the list goes on and on. How a cordless breast pump hasn’t been invented long ago is beyond me. It is well overdue, but also well out of my budget so I can only hope to have one if I win one. Every item on this list is worth dreaming about alone….the thought of winning all of them is overwhelming. It would be so amazing!

  260. I am a first time mom-to-be expecting twin girls! Creating a registry can be overwhelming, so this is an INCREDIBLE resource! THANK YOU for this! I have not tried any of these products yet, but have added several to my registry. Looking forward to trying the Fisher Price Rock-N-Play and City Select Stroller!

  261. Great list. I’m pregnant with baby girl number 3 and needed some new things. Love the Rock and Play Sleeper for the first two so I will for sure be getting a new one for baby number 3.

  262. Oh my gosh, this list is amazing! Due with baby #3 next month and even though we’ve been around the block a couple of times, we need so many things this time around. Loving this list! So many favs (just got the Nuna Pipa and Mixx at your recommendation!), but my fav is probably those comfy PJs. Going to have to get me some of those!!

  263. Wow this is amazing! Thank you so much for the list and the giveaway!! Your little ones are so precious too.I love all of the pictures. These are all really high quality products, out of a lot of budgets, but in lots of dreams, Winning could really change some lucky mama’s life!

  264. This is definitely the best baby list out there. My favorite item is probably the DockATot but there are so many other great items and they are all the best in each of their categories!!

  265. This post is so incredibly informative and detailed. Thank you! All the items I’ve been wanting to know more about before purchasing are on here. I’d have to say my favorite item would have to be the Dockatot or the Snoo! 😊

  266. Love how in depth this is! I want to try the Snoo SO SO bad. Those mebie swaddles are to die for too though. Ah so much goodness!

  267. This is all the stuff we wanted before baby was born, but due to moving whe n she was 2 weeks old, we had to stick to the neccessities

  268. Favorite thing about baby registry is dockadot!!! I didn’t have one with my first baby and I want one so bad during this one! 😍

  269. I LOVE this whole list! I’m currently pregnant with my first baby and this has been so helpful to read your current recommendations and which items have stood the test of time with 3 children! Thank you for putting this together!!

  270. This is seriously all SO good!! I’ve always been all about baby gear, even before I had my first baby, and like you, it’s been fun figuring out what I like, don’t like, LOVE, and absolutely cannot live without. It was hard picking just ONE thing that’s my favorite, but I’m going to go with the rock n play!! I couldn’t have survived those first few months without it with my first baby, and am anxious to use it again with our baby girl due in TWO WEEKS!!!

  271. I’m pregnant with my 3rd 15 years after my youngest son was born. So we need all the things! Thanks for a great list!

  272. It always amazes me how gear changes over the years. I ended up strictly pumping with my first two- it died I used it so much. I can’t even handle the willow pump. Life changing!! 😍

  273. Our DocATot saved my life the first few weeks our baby was home. He slept so well every time we put him in it. We also LOVE our Nuna Pipa car seat. It is so comfortable and easy to install in the car. The best part is that it is compatible with our Uppababy stroller.

  274. Favorite baby item from the Best Baby Registry List Giveaway has to be the Dockatot!! I’ve been wanting one for my little one for a while now he’s growing out of his bassinet and I’ve been debating if I need to upgrade soon!

  275. My favorite item from the Bezt Baby List Ever Giveaway has to be the Dockatot!! My little one is outgrowing his bassinet and I’ve been debating on upgrading him to something bigger but being on a budget it hasn’t been possible. Really wanting luck to be on my side 🙂

  276. Soft blankets were my son’s favorite. He loved rubbing the silk edges of his Lil Giraffe. I wish I had a snoo! I’ve hear wonderful things about that miracle worker. Love your list, and your hospital bag.

  277. Ahhhhhh!! 😭🙌🏼This is SO helpful! I am expecting and due in February with my first! Starting to register was feeling so overwhelming, but this helps so much! Thank you for your tips and thoughtful insight! 😍 I can’t wait to try these out with baby E! Thank you!!

  278. Ahh!! This list is life changing and your explain actions are so helpful! I am 15 weeks pregnant with our first baby and this can be so overwhelming! We just found out yesterday that we are having a baby girl and my husband and I are over the moon! We just moved away from all of our friends and family so anything that will make our lives easier, I hope we can get ASAP! Xxx

  279. I love this list! I haven’t used the solly baby yet, but my friends rave about it. And I can’t wait to try myself when my little girl is born!

  280. This is such an extensive list! Thank you for all the information. I would love to have a dock a tot out of all the items you reviewed. My little one is due to come home soon from the NICU, and I’m hoping that it will help her to be comfy in our living room

  281. I love so many of these products, but one of my favorites has to be the Gathre mats! SO versatile, love everything about them.

  282. I so appreciate all the nursing suggestions! I am having such a hard time figuring out what I need as a first time mom for my baby girl coming in January! Thank you so much for making it easy!

  283. I don’t really get on social media anymore but I missed seeing your posts so I subscribed to your emails! I don’t have kids… yet 😉 but I’ve heard amazing things about the Dockatot from friends!

  284. My absolute favorites have got to be the Rock n’ Play and our baby joggers stroller (we have both the single and double versions of the city select)! Must.haves.

  285. MamaRoo for the wiiiiiiiiiin. Seriously the BEST for newborns. Also love my City Select! As for what I’m dying to try — I’m so intrigued by the Dockatot.

  286. I love this list!!! Having number 2 (due Christmas Day) and feeling like we have nothing for him. I can’t even pick my fav baby item. My fav that we have is the rock and play. I’d love a willow breast pump for while at work. So discreet.

  287. I’ve heard AMAZING things about the SNOO! I can’t wait to try that out during the next round! (Isn’t it crazy all the different products that come out in between your very own pregnancies?!) thank you so much for sharing that comprehensive list!!

  288. What a great list! Thanks for sharing! We loved the Dockatot with our first (Lyla Rose inspired by your little Lyla :)) and are hopeful it will be a hit again with #2 due in January!

  289. I am in absolute awe at the time and heart that went into making this list. it is so helpful and extremely easy to navigate. favorite thing on the list would have to be the Willow pump. I’ve never actually gotten to use one, however, I’ve been so intrigued about it. Thank you so much for all the work you do not only for us, but also for our Heavenly Father.

  290. Such a great list of all the basics you need for your baby! I love having a carrier for my babies! So nice having hands free but still having them close by!

  291. This list is amazing! I’m expecting in the spring and it will have been 5 years since we had our last baby so a lot of items on this list are new to me! That snoo looks amazing and so does that baby jogger!

  292. Theres a couple items i loved that i would love to try. The first being the docatock, having a safe clean space to put baby is so convinient and such a great idea besides, me and baby girl would be traveling alot to see dad when shes born and that docatock seems like a perfect item to have. The second is the solly baby wrap, with my first child i baby wore every single day because he didnt want to be put down and that was very hard because my arms would get so tired and i didnt want to use a baby carrier all the time because the position looked so awkward, so i would just carry my baby (one thing i would never regret since my son passed away at 3 months, and that is a memory of him being in my arms i will always have) with babygirl i want to be able to do the same but a more convinient way and that wrap seems like my answer and it comes in cute colors perfect for a picture.

  293. I am due Christmas with my little girl. The timing between her and my son is 6 years so this has been a big help! I really love the sollywrap as I’ll be running around with her trying to keep up with my 6 year old!

  294. I have a four year old and due with our second daughter in February. I can’t wait to add most of these items to my Amazon Registry to make sure that I update all of the new baby items. This list is spectacular! Thank you for sharing. <3

  295. I love this list it’s so helpful! I just had my second baby but it’s still helpful to see what products work best because there is so many different options. I have the olde version of the mama too swing and it was a lifesaver. I also LOVE my dawn design bag. As for something I’ve been wanting to try is the dockaTot. It is so important to me to have a safe and comfortable place for my baby to rest. Thank you for offering this giveaway!

  296. The Solly baby wrap looks amazing! I didn’t realize there were “prettier” ways to carry your baby in the front other than those black military looking ones I always see.

  297. I am a new pregnant mom and love this baby registry! Such great ideas. I would love the Doc-a-Tot for my little one coming, I’ve heard great things about it!

  298. This list is so helpful. Prepping for baby #2 and have been eyeing the willow pump for convenience. Thank you for sharing and doing this incredible giveaway!

  299. I think I struck gold coming across this post! It’s so important to feel settled and stress-free with a baby on the way! Baby #1 coming in the spring. I feel more prepared already. Thank you!

  300. I bought the mamaroo for my son and he never liked it. It definitely isn’t for every baby but hopefully my next one will like it as I am 7 months pregnant and will soon be trying out the mamaroo again

  301. I LOVE our Saranoni swaddle blanket. It is so soft, cushy, and even stretchy. I purchased one made of bamboo and it is so cozy. I want one for myself now!

  302. This list is amazing! It helped me so much when preparing to welcome my first little one who arrived just 7 weeks ago. I think the SNOO sounds amazing! My little man has had some trouble with sleep and I feel like it would be such a life saver!

    I love your blog so much. I always find such helpful information when I need it and I love your positivity and honesty.

  303. Love the BabyBjorn travel lite. Favorite and awesome customer service too when I had a problem. They sent me a brand new one!

  304. Amazing list!!! Wish we could try the snoo with our third! But the dockatot was seriously the greatest thing ever for our second and I can’t wait to try it for our third!

  305. I would love the happiest baby bassinet! baby two on the way and we don’t have our bassinet anymore! the one we had before was a hand-me-down and didn’t last 🙁

  306. I just found out I’m pregnant, and so I’ve been trying to come up with my needs/wants based off from what I had and didn’t have with my first child. I loved my Solly wrap, but have been definitely eying the doc a tot and a new jogging stroller since I love to run. There is so much to this list that I want!!

  307. Im so jealous!! My baby has latch issues and I want the willow pump so badly!! AND i cant produce enough milk so I have to pump an insane amount of times a day.
    However, I entered in your contest so hopefully. 😉 My favorite thing from your list above is my gathre mat. I have a sick parent, so we travel to see her a lot. Nice to take that with us.

  308. So helpful! You’ve thought of everything! Thank you for including the best of the best and a reasonably priced option for so many of us! This will make nesting way less stressful. I love those baby blankets and bows.

  309. Where do I even start with all the things I want to buy for my baby! The snoo, dock a tot and willow pump are the top of my list!

  310. I couldn’t have survived without your list for my last baby and it was #3! Now I’m pregnant with #4 and recently found out he has a birth defect – I’m heavily relying on your updated list to make sure I’m prepared for him. I am heartbroken I won’t be able to nurse him so I am in need of a good pump!!

  311. This post is amazing!!! I am due in November and now I am scrambling trying to get stuff on the list. Love the baby bow infant caps, blankets, the bassinet is way to expensive but looks sooooo good!! Love this list, definitely my go to list!!

  312. I love this list, and I would have totally ditto-ed the Fels-Naptha for blowout stains… but a friend gave me an even BETTER trick when my last baby was born. The Fels-Naptha works great, but still requires a little scrubbing in my experience… This new solution works like MAGIC! Just spray on the stains and wash (you can even let it sit for a while if you’re not ready to start a load right away). The recipe is super simple: Mix 1/3 part Persil detergent, 1/3 part ammonia, and 1/3 part vinegar and put it in a spray bottle. It’s ready to go whenever you need it and is a huge timesaver!

  313. I’m pregnant with our first and freaking out over what we will need. This is thought to be such a huge help! I will never ever not love Tubby Tod. It’s amazing!!

  314. This list is SO helpful to me as an expecting first time mom! My favorite item on this list is the Nuna Pipa Lite. I’ve read your posts about it before and finally decided to just order it. Hoping we love it! Thank you!

  315. I loved the comotomo bottles with my first baby and we will definitely be using them with #2! Best bottles for breast milk or formula hands down

  316. I love the gathre mats! How I feel like there could be so many uses for them! Picnics, play room or even changing a diaper! Thank you sooo much for all the time and effort you put in to making this baby registry list! ❤️

  317. I love my Fawn diaper bag! But if I win I would most like to try the willow pump! Pumping is such a pain point for me and I’m so intrigued. Descretly pump while waiting in the school pick up line? …. yes please!! Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  318. The things I love the most from your registry are the baby jogger stroller and the willow pump recommendations; anything to help get momma out of the house and to help momma “keep on keeping on.”

  319. I love the Willow Pump! It wasn’t released in time for my last baby but I’m hoping to get it for my next baby!

  320. I’ve been wanting to try those comotomo bottles this time around! I really hope they help with colicky babies 🙂

  321. I have only tried the Solly and the bottles but I loved both. For my next baby I want a dock a tot so bad and the Gathre Mat.

  322. This list is so perfect it’s impossible to pick a favorite. But I know with my next baby I’ll be getting the dockatot, a house dress, maybe a Willow pump, and 4moms swing. But that smart bassinet is a dream!! And the diaper bag. Ugh, love it all!!!!

  323. Corrine,

    Wow this is such a stellar list! I cannot thank you enough for putting this perfect registry list together. Your post is definitely reassuring since I have heard so many great things about the Snoo Smart Sleeper. It is so hard to pick just one but I would say that the Snoo Bassinet would be my favorite item on your registry list:)

  324. This is the most amazing list! I can’t wait to get some new stuff for baby #3! There is always so much new stuff to choose from it’s so helpful to have a guide!

  325. Thank you so much for this list! I am prego with our 2nd and my 1st is almost 4. I feel sometimes like I’m starting all over from point A that it’s a bit overwhelming. These detailed tips are SO very much appreciated. My favorite item is a toss up between the Snoo and Willow Pump. I’d have to with the pump because I had such a hard time with breast feeding and pumping. It was extremely stressful. I am hoping and praying that it goes better this time around. Thank you again!

  326. The comotomo has to be my favorite item. Everything else is beautiful and so helpful, but if I could get my new baby to take a bottle, that would be the greatest gift and I’ve heard such great things about these bottles and breastfed babies. Mama needs to be able to leave once in a while!

  327. The Snoo and the Mamaroo sound amazing. We have two infertility procedure babies and were told we would never have another after our second was born almost a year ago. 18 weeks ago we found out we were pregnant! Most of what we had baby wise was gifted to mother’s in our community that needed support. So we are basically starting over. This would be such a blessing for us.

  328. This list was SO helpful with my first baby… and to my surprise it has been even MORE helpful as I prepare for my second one! I am such a Tubby Todd fan thanks to you. It completely cleared up my son’s eczema after weeks of trying other products. I can’t wait to try the other products that have been added! Crossing my fingers hard that I win the giveaway… you are so amazing for putting that together!!!

  329. This registry! So so good! Love so many of these items like the travel system and so anxious to try out some of the other stuff!!

  330. This is an amazing – dream of a list! 😍 Gosh I’d love to try that cordless pump for baby #2! We loved the dock-a-tot for our son!

  331. Oh my goodness, what a list!! I hadn’t even heard of some of these items, but they all look amazing! I especially love the idea of snoo and those pop pacifiers are genius!!

  332. Believe it or not I’m probably most appreciative of your momwasher recommendation! lol I never would have thought of that.

  333. Whoa! This list is incredible! Thank you for making it for all of us mamas to be! I’m SO intrigued by the Willow Pump! I’ll be traveling a lot in my car for my job so it seems like this item would be PERFECT for me! Thanks again!

  334. I love my vista stroller and silly wraps! I also can’t live without my mamaroo! My son sleeps so well in it! I wish I knew about it with my first 2 kids!

  335. Love the Belly Bandit. Didn’t realize how much it was helping my c-section healing until I accidentally skipped a day!

  336. This really is the BEST registry list ever! I used it for my daughter and have recogmended it to girlfriends. So many favorites but if i had to pick one, Dock a tot is AMAZING! Thank you!

  337. it’s so hard to know what you’re really going to want/need with your first baby. thanks for your expert advice! that Pottery Barn glider chair looks like an absolute dream!

  338. Love this list! I feel so out of the loop with what the latest and greatest is from having my last baby, so this helps a ton! I would love to get a dockatot!

  339. This list is a godsend! Literally so overwhelming trying to figure out what the best options for baby are! Love that you listed multiple options & included budget friendly options! Thank you!

  340. This is a great post! I haven’t tried most of these things, but I have heard so many good things about the Dockatot! These are all great suggestions, I’m excited to look further into to get before baby comes in December!

  341. I’m truly loving everything! With my first I felt so unprepared, and now with the next I feel like there’s so little to worry about it. It’s crazy how much changes in 5 years. This blog post truly help me feel prepared and ready for the next adventure of two children!

  342. What an amazing giveaway!! It amazes me all the new products on the market since I started having babies just 6 years ago! Baby gear is my favorite!

  343. Corrine! I couldn’t agree more on soooo many items, I would sell my firstborn to try out that Snoo! We just survived grad school & just had our third😳😳😳

  344. So many are my favorites. I just barely had a baby and i could use all of these but I love the rock n play. I love your blog thanks for putting so much time and effort into it

  345. I am pregnant with my third child and feel so out of the loop- Baby items have come a long way in just two years! This is a great list and I hope to be able to try even just a few of these things! (The willow pump seems amazing!) Thank you!

  346. This list is amazing!!! Love a lot of the brands already and can’t wait to try some of the new things on baby #3! Tubby Todd has been a lifesaver at my house! Thanks for the updated list! ❤️

  347. So excited to be a first time momma! I am a special ed teacher and love my students and am so excited to have a kiddo of my own. Can’t wait to try the willow pump

  348. This post is SERIOUSLY AMAZING!! I am currently expecting with my 4th next month😱 My oldest just turned 5 and life with my 3 littles is crazy busy but I wouldn’t change it for the world! All of these products are awesome! The willow pump is something I would love to have, especially love the hands, cords and bottle free! Thank you SO much for all your hard work in putting this together

  349. We love our A & A swaddle blankets! We probably have 20+ in all different colors and styles. I just had baby #3 a couple days after Corrine did and this time it was a boy! So fun to get some new boy-ish swaddle prints.

  350. Wow! I am pregnant with baby number two. This list is amazing, so thankful for your hard work to put this together. It is really helping me out with all the things I’ll need for this little men. With my first, she loved her comotomo bottles and her dock. Would love to try this new bassinet with my baby boy. So excited.

    Thank you again for this list.

  351. This list has everything you could think of needing for a newborn! As a newborn nurse I have taken care of so many babies that are so fussy because they aren’t being held or rocked. The mama roo is the biggest lifesaver for moms everywhere! I swear by them and I haven’t even had my first yet! Anything to be able to set your baby down for a couple of minutes to get in a shower or eat some food.
