Baby Products Recommended By Mamas + Products They Would Pass On
With just a handful of weeks left in my second trimester, I figured it was time to start my baby registry. Since the very day I found out I was pregnant, I started researching and “saving” products I knew I wanted to someday add to my registry. As a nanny, a niece, and an older sister to 6 siblings, I did have a lot of knowledge and a great place to start on things I knew I would need. I recently started my registry on Babylist, based on a lot of the mamas recommendations, which has been great so far. It’s simple, organized, and I love that you can add products from any website. Plus, it compares prices!
I love being a part of a supportive, encouraging, and helpful community, and it just so happens to be growing with mamas! I reached out to all my mamas and asked them what products they would recommend I put on my registry, and what items they would pass on. I had so much great feedback, that I figured I would just share it here, especially since so many of my pregnant gals were interested in knowing what they said as well. Obviously, what you want to put on your registry is totally up to you, but I thought this would be helpful, I know it was for me. So, here we go… here are baby products recommended by mamas + products they would pass on!
Baby Products Recommended By Mamas:
Velcro swaddles- Zen Sack swaddle was a brand listed
Stroller and/or carrier
Bibs & Burp Cloths
Storage bins/baskets/carts- these would be great for your changing caddy, for organizing the closet or even for toys!
Products They Would Pass On:
Please consider researching these products to see if they may be a good fit for you! Just because they are under the “pass” section, doesn’t mean they may not be a good fit for you and baby.
While I had so many recommend the Dockatot or boppy pillow, I also had many that would pass on them.
Non velcro or zip swaddles
Nose Frida- listed as both a recommend and pass
I just want to say a BIG thank you to all the mamas out there supporting and encouraging each other. Thank you for being open, honest, and vulnerable.
In addition to the above, I wanted to also list a couple additional items that I have added to my registry:
-Diaper bag- I added the Fawn Design backpack
-Baby clothes- I added several baby clothing options to give my friends and family some inspiration!
-Pacifiers- I fell in love with these BPA-free pacifiers, and all the colors they come in!
–Diaper Genie– I suggest adding some refills on the registry too!
-Diapers- Another option is to do a diaper raffle at your shower! I did one at our gender reveal and it was awesome, we got so many packs of diapers. I know we will need more though!
-Baby bath essentials
-Baby toys- I added a couple of toy items to my registry for more baby inspo
-Additional bottles- I went ahead and added a couple of bottles to my registry in a couple of different brands I had researched. I added the Comotomo bottle , and additional Medela bottles ( as well as extra milk storage bags)
