Hi, Bee readers! I’m back again talking registry dreams. Since this poor second baby will be inheriting his brother’s “big ticket” items, this is the arena where he will likely actually see some of these new items (although with no shower or sprinkle in the horizon, it will likely be paid for by yours truly). But in my dream world, if I could register all over again for all of the accessories that go along with baby’s first year, here is what we would register for this time around:
1) Aden & Anais Muslin Swaddle Blankets | 2) Summer Infant Swaddleme | 3) Halo Fleece Sleepsack | 4) Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit | 5) Zipadeezip | 6) Woombie | 7) Breathable Mesh Bumper | 8) Crib Sheet
I’m a firm believer in minimal registering for baby layette. People want to pick out their own adorable clothing choices for your baby, and honestly, babies are gross, and will poop or throw up on anything you dress them in or cover their mattress with (sad but true). However, there are a few key pieces that I would register for if given the chance for a first baby. First, I would register for a ton of different swaddling and sleep assisting options. Every kid is different, and since sleep-deprived moms tend to be more than willing to throw money at the problem, swaddles and sleep gear that you don’t end up needing will maintain a decent resale value.
