You would be surprised when it comes to preparing for baby how much of the “stuff” you really won’t use. The never-ending list might be helpful, but you really won’t use half of it. Being a mom now for 11 years, I’ve learned this well — and with each child I used less and less of the material goods. However, there were quite a few things I just couldn’t be without. While the list isn’t long, these are some of the things you must have.
Take a look at my baby registry essentials!
A bathtub was always something I used all the time. I especially love this Minnie Mouse Tub from Sassy because it’s just so colorful and fun. The tub comes with a removable newborn sling so you can use it the moment they come home from the hospital.

You can’t get enough blankets, so it’s time to stock up. Especially stroller blankets! And this a great find because it has a foot pocket that provides extra warmth for Baby’s 10 tiny toes. Plus, it folds into a pocket for easy storage.

A safe and sound travel system is an obvious essential before baby’s arrival. I love all of the options with this duo from a parent tray to two covered cup holders, and plenty of storage! Plus, the car seat features a 2-position adjustable base!

I can’t leave home without my filled-to-the-brim diaper bag. When shopping for bags, I suggest going for something that works as a bag you can carry without baby too, like this amazing red diaper bag.

Grayson loved his bouncer! If any of my friends ask me what to put on their registry, I immediately say – a bouncy chair! Grayson loved all the interactive sounds and toys on his beloved chair.
