Creating a baby registry for your first child is like trying to guess how many jelly beans are in a jar. You have absolutely no idea what you or your child will need in the first year of their life (because you’ve never done it before and because every child is different). Plus, you don’t know what half the stuff is anyways. A car seat adaptor? A Boppy? What the what?!
Well, I’m here to take the guesswork out of creating a baby registry. This isn’t an an all-inclusive list (check The Bump for that), but these are 11 essentials that should be on your list, whether you’re having a boy, a girl, twins, whatever. Also, I’ve explained why you’ll need them/what they are. You’re welcome!
