I have not had a baby registry since 2004.
I am dead serious. With kids 2-4, creating a baby registry just wasn’t on my radar for several reasons. For one, it was entirely too time-consuming going from store to store, scanning items, and getting those little pieces of paper of hand out to people.
Secondly, there was never a convenient process for creating the registry. My issue was there was never one store that had everything I was looking for. So that means I had to put in extra work.
I promise I’m not lazy, but if I can be real, ain’t nobody got time for that!
With Baby Cinco coming this fall, I have been inundated with questions about my registry, so this time I decided to use Babylist.
Babylist allows me to add any item from any store to one registry. This means that cute outfit I saw at Target can be added as well as the adorable moccs I saw at Freshly Picked or the even the Tula I have been dying to get!
I can even add items from my favorite Etsy shops so that I can support smaller businesses as well.
Not only can I add items that I really want for the baby, but I can also add things that I really need for my family. With this being baby #5, I know that I am going to need lots of help afterward. I can also add favor coupons that will allow me to have unique items on my list such as home cooked meals, or even help to drop off and picking up the other kids from school the first week.
You can add items to your Babylist registry, via their website and button on Chrome from any website, as well as through the app.
Babylist makes it easy for my parents and even great-grandparents to find out what we need for our baby (it was even easy for my 90-year-old grandfather to use).
Even though this is number five for our family, that doesn’t mean I don’t get stumped on the items that I need. Babylist has helpful guides and sample registries for me to peek at so that I can get a few ideas on cool new items to add for our baby.
You can even qualify for a free welcome surprise box after you register! Your Hello Baby Box will come with sample products and offers from major brands like Pampers, Lanisoh, and Mam. The Hello Baby Box can vary from month to month are is only available to US Residents while supplies last.
If you are looking for a new way to register for baby and to up your registry game, definitely check out Babylist!
