Hooray! You have a bun in the oven! Now that the news is out and your cravings are in full force, it’s time to get prepared to welcome your little bundle of joy into the world. In other words, it’s time to register!
Registering can be fun, exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. The big question is, where do I start? Right here! Go ahead and put up those tired feet, grab that bowl of chocolate chip ice cream (with a side of pickles) and let me help you as you begin your registering adventure.
Start by checking out these tips to find the perfect place to register:
- Download our new Baby Registry Checklist and check things off while you’re registering in the store or online!
- Decide where you’re going to register. We compiled this handy registry chart which compares all of the registry perks from our favorite retailers and registry providers. We like to break it down into three types of registries:
- Essentials Retailers: everything you need from breakfast to bathtime.
- Specialty Retailers: high-end baby gear as well as furniture, bedding and decor for your dream nursery.
- All-Inclusive Registry Providers: allow you to combine all types of registries in one place. They also have unique gift options – cash, gifts from the heart, second hand gifts, etc.

What if you find your favorite “must have” items at different retailers? You’re in luck! You can create as many registries as you would like! (We recommend that you register at one essential retailer and one specialty retailer.) Then refer your friends and loved ones to RegistryFinder.com where they can find all of your baby gift registries in one place!
