Newborn Registry Guide

Here is a guide to the BEST most HELPFUL items we've used in the first month with Henry. If you're shopping for a baby shower, I guarantee these to be a hit with the parents...leave the cutesie outfits for someone else to buy. This is what they'll REALLY use!


  • We LOVE Cloth Diapers - find a local Diaper service to wash them!

  • Burp Cloths...and plenty of them
  • Boppy Nursing Pillow (don't forget a fun slip cover)

  • Glider

    (with NO ottoman...get a Medela nursing stool instead)

Comforting a Crying Baby:

  • Moby Wrap Sling! (#1 most used item in our house)

  • Kiddopotamus Swaddler  (so much easier than fussing with a blanket)

  • HoMedics White Sound Machine

  • Happiest Baby on the Block DVD (I hate Dr. Phil, but he was right on this one!  Highly recommend for techniques in comforting your fussy little one)

  • Sissel Swiss Pro Exercise Ball (to sit on and bounce with baby in your arms...sure fire way to quiet them!)

  • First Years Sure Comfort Bathtub

  • Infant Bath Thermometer

  • Hooded Towels & Washcloths
  • Winter babies stock up on long sleeve, footie PJs that SNAP - not zip! (it's pretty much the only thing Henry wears)
  • Gerber Side Snap Shirts (for under the PJs)

  • Cradle

  • Sony BabyCall Monitor (just make sure the frequency doesn't interfere with your cordless phone or wireless router)

  • Nightlights!
Play Time:
  • Tiny Love Gymini Play Gym

  • Lamaze Toys

  • Chicco Cortina Travel System:  Carseat/Stroller
