Baby shower to do list!

I finally got the list of people we want to invite finished so now I can concentrate on finishing the darn registry, Even though its fun to look for things I find it time consuming and a little confusing!

      I feel like I wasted so much time on my registry. I checked all the ratings for the products to help me pick the best of everything. Most people didn't even buy from my registry though. I had a wide variety of things with various prices, but people wanted to give what THEY liked. I didn't even use most of it anyway.

      We were lucky that our families bought most of the big stuff like her nursery furniture, the travel system, and the swing. The best baby shower gifts we got were probably the rock n play, the baby tub and bath items, and diaper changing stuff.

      Our daughter was born premature so she couldn't wear any of the clothes people bought for a long time. We ended up with so many types of pacifiers. Everyone gave me a different brand, but Dayna only wanted one kind. Try to think about the essentials you'll really need in the beginning when you're registering. Some of it is really hard to plan ahead with. I feel like I didn't truly understand what I needed until I had her and saw what would be helpful and what was just a waste of money.

        Luke's cousin is taking me to BuyBuy Baby to look at things and get ideas, I think it would be easier to be in a store looking instead of online.

          If you go to babies R us they will give you a "welcome packet" and it will have a list of things that you "need" for your registry. Its helpful. When you register for diapers and DO!!! register for different sizes and ask people to please give a receipt just in case your little one can't wear that brand of diapers. We went threw 3 different kinds of diapers before we found ones that didn't make our son all red... poor guy. Now he's a Pampers Swaddles guy :) When you register for bottles again receipts just in case the bottles don't work for your little one... they can be picky or have a "bad" latch, sleepers and toys and clothes and blankets, NUKs (make sure to watch the size and lable them for the different sizes so you don't give your little one a nuk that's to big and they just choke on it.... not fun. UM... yeah... If you get to confused you can always ask one of the workers at babies r us for help and I"m sure they would love to help you. Register for big stuff to... car seat, stroller, bouncers, swing, exor saucer, toys you may want. register for it all and even for gift cards they help a lot so you can get the stuff you need that you didn't get...
