Baby Registry Must Haves

Congratulations on your upcoming arrival! As you eagerly prepare for the arrival of your little one, creating a baby registry is an exciting step towards ensuring you have all the essentials to welcome your baby into the world with comfort and joy. As a Cleveland newborn photographer and mom to two, I’ve gathered baby registry must haves you don’t want to forget! These essential items will make those early days with your newborn a breeze. (Or to be honest, just a little bit easier!) 😉

Baby Registry Must Haves

1. Boppy Pillow:

The Boppy Pillow is a versatile and essential item for both breastfeeding and bottle-feeding moms. Its design provides support and comfort for you and your baby during feeding sessions, and it can also be used for propping, tummy time, and sitting support as your baby grows. Not only did I use this often my boys’ first year, I also used it those first few weeks postpartum! (You can thank me later on that one!)

2. Rocking Chair:

A comfortable rocking chair is a nursery essential for feeding, cuddling, and bonding with your baby. Choose a chair with plush cushions and gentle rocking motion. It will be such a lifesaver to you during those long, sleepless nights! I love this one we have here that also reclines!

3. Velcro or Zip Swaddles:

Swaddling is a time-saving technique for helping newborns feel secure and sleep more soundly. Velcro or zip swaddles make swaddling a breeze, allowing you to wrap your baby snugly and securely without the hassle of folding blankets.

4. Sound Machine:

A sound machine is a game-changer for creating a calm and sleep-inducing environment for baby. Choose a sound machine with white noise, lullabies, or nature sounds to help drown out background noise and promote better sleep for your little one.

5. NoseFrida:

A stuffy nose can make your baby uncomfortable and interfere with feeding and sleep. The NoseFrida, is a gentle and effective tool for clearing your baby’s nasal passages and helping them breathe easier.

6. Video Baby Monitor:

A video baby monitor provides peace of mind by allowing you to keep an eye on your baby from anywhere in your home. Choose a monitor with features like night vision, two-way audio, and temperature monitoring to stay connected and informed about your baby’s well-being.

7. Wildbird Sling:

A baby sling or carrier is a convenient and practical way to keep your baby close while having your hands free. My second lived in this the first three months! It was so handy to take to the grocery store. I also still use it now with him at 15 months on my back! The Wildbird Sling, known for its stylish designs and comfortable fabrics, allows you to carry your baby comfortably and securely while on the go.

8. Car Video Monitor:

A car video monitor provides added safety and peace of mind when traveling with your baby. With a car video monitor, you can keep an eye on your baby’s car seat from the front seat, ensuring they are safe and secure throughout the journey. I love ours!

9. Baby Bouncer:

A baby bouncer is a lifesaver for parents who need a safe place to set their baby down for a moment. Choose a bouncer with gentle vibrations, interactive toys, and adjustable recline positions to keep your baby entertained and comfortable.

10. Pacifier Clip:

Keep your baby’s pacifier clean and within reach with a pacifier clip. This handy accessory attaches securely to baby’s clothing or bib, preventing the pacifier from getting lost or dirty while on the go.

As you prepare to welcome your little one into the world, having the right baby registry must haves will help you feel confident and prepared for the journey ahead. From feeding and sleeping to bonding and travel, these essential items will support you and your baby every step of the way. Happy registry shopping, and here’s to the wonderful adventure ahead!
