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!


Diapers:

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


Nursing:
  • 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!)



Bathtime:
  • First Years Sure Comfort Bathtub


  • Infant Bath Thermometer


  • Hooded Towels & Washcloths
Clothes:
  • 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)


Sleeping:
  • 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


Travel:
  • Chicco Cortina Travel System:  Carseat/Stroller
