5 Baby Registry Must-Haves
Since they heard the good news, your friends and family have been overjoyed to welcome your baby to the world. And luckily, they’re also happy to pitch in and help you stock your home with everything you need for your new arrival.
But what should you prioritize on your long baby registry wish list? Here are 5 registry must-haves that we recommend.
Sleek Diaper Bags (for Each Parent)
Diaper bags get a bad rap for being a little bulky and frumpy – but they don’t have to be. There are lots of hip designs out there for moms and dads that carry all your gear, and look good in the process. Check out a diaper bag that looks like a simple messenger bag or tote, or one that doubles as a stylish purse. Keep a bag stocked for each parent in a convenient place.
A Comfy Baby Carrier
From wraps and slings to backpacks and harnesses, there is no shortage of different types of baby carriers. Ask around for friends’ recommendations and read reviews, but be sure to try a few on before committing to one. You’ll have your own personal preferences for the best fit, and you’ll want to test it out to see if it’s comfortable.
A Reliable New Crib
Read up on the latest crib buying recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics to help guide your decision. Avoid cribs with drop rails, and look closely at the measurements to ensure the crib is the right height and the bars are spaced correctly. Consider getting a convertible crib that will transform into a toddler bed when you’re ready for it in a few years.
A Car Seat/ Stroller Travel System
You’ll want both a stroller and a car seat for outings with your little one, but a combination travel system will save you a lot of time and hassle. It allows you to snap a car seat out of its base, then attach it easily to the stroller (all while juggling bags and trying not to wake your sleeping infant).
A Worry-Free Baby Monitor
Anything that gets you and your baby to sleep better at night is a must-have registry item. Find a video baby monitor that lets you keep eyes and ears on your infant no matter where you are in the house. Levana monitors offer a wide range of features that will help you rest easy – from customized timers and remote-controlled lullabies to LED night vision and a two-way intercom.
