Whenever we think of a new family member we think of everything we'll need to take care of him or her. So, shopping for those things might sound like a cumbersome process. Not only because of the wide variety of brands you'll find out there but also because of the actual process of visiting stores looking for the things you think or you're almost sure you’ll need. And when it comes to the first child we could easily feel overwhelmed because of not knowing where to start.
Liapela brings you an option, which works wonders. You can even implement this idea for your baby shower to get what you need and not to be running around when the time comes. We're talking about a baby registry checklist that can be easily created at Liapela Modern Baby.
What’s a Baby Registry List?
First of, let's start with what a baby registry is. It's nothing more than a gift wishlist for you and your baby. Within said baby registry checklist you can include everything you and your baby will need and have family and friends get them for you. Everything’s so easy with a baby registry! You might be thinking: how does it work? Before we get there we’ll give you some tips on how to prepare yourself for that listing.
Baby Registry List Tips
So, our first step will be doing some research to make sure we are aware of the things we’ll need. You’ll find so many things that are new to you! Regardless of this being your first child or not. Picture yourself going into a store, taking a look around and recognizing about 20% of the objects there, scary right? Of course you could always ask the salesperson what those things are, but how tiring do you think it’d be for the both of you?
On the other hand, you’ll find so many brands! Some well-known and some others that are still good and might be ideal for you, but have no idea of. So, to avoid this and make sure you include the right items in your baby registry checklist it’s best for you to be aware of what you really need. Luckily, we have the internet to help us with that!
What to include or not in my list? We’ve done our research by now, but we’re still not sure of what to include. Keep in mind that a baby registry list is for your family and friends to help you through the process of getting the things you and your baby will need. Make sure the first items included are those that you REALLY are going to need. But there are other things that you could get by yourself, so make sure you think it through.
Do not be afraid or ashamed of including very small and inexpensive things such as bibs or blankets, not everybody will be willing or able to spend much money either. But that doesn’t mean that including something like a rocker or glider or a crib in your baby registry checklist is out of the question. That’ll give your family and friends the opportunity to get you whatever they want and can, also they can chip in if they’d like to.
Think of long-term situations. Babies grow, and surprisingly fast so do not stay with products they’ll use just for the first months. The onesies they wore when they were 2 months old will not fit by the time they reach the 6 months, so you need to think ahead and prevent finding yourself with very small clothing, nothing your baby couldn’t wear any longer. What about when they start seating by themselves and it’s time for them to join you at the table? A high chair will definitely be needed! You’ll also find tons of brands and types of high chairs, make sure to look into it and choose the right fit.
Thinking outside the box is really important here, so make sure you take your time to prepare this baby registry list, and to help you be more aware of what you really need we offer you this checklist so you download it, print it out and start shopping!
You now have thought of everything for your baby, what about you? You deserve some presents too, right? So you can include some creams and balms to care for your skin or a beautiful journal to keep a record of every little thing in your baby’s life (and yours of course); you can get more ideas of what to include from our selection for mom and if you want to know a little more about why creating a baby registry you can check them out here.
