Getting The Most Out of Your Baby Registry
So, you’re having a baby? Congratulations! There are so many things to get prepared for. When I was pregnant, I stressed out every day about having everything ready for the baby! One of the first things I did was start a few baby registries. Baby registries make it super easy for your friends and family to know exactly what you want while still making gift-giving a surprise! I don’t recommend being registered in 100 places, but I do like a variety. I registered in 3 places and it was perfect. Here is my list:
Amazon Baby Registry
Amazon is always giving me great deals, and this is no different! Amazon offers a free welcome box when you sign up for a baby registry. There are some rules, though. You’ll have to create your registry, and add items to your list until the “jump start” box is 100% full. You’ll also have to make a purchase from your list valued at $10 or more, and be a prime member. All of these were no problem for me! I have been a prime member for years, because it’s so much cheaper on shipping! (Try Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial Here!) I shop (probably too much!) on Amazon, so I had no problem purchasing the cutest onesie for my upcoming little one! You can start your baby registry here! One extra perk about this registry is that you get a completion coupon 60 days prior to your baby’s due date. This is a one time coupon that can be used to finish buying anything from your registry that you didn’t receive. This is especially great if you’re purchasing a big item like a crib or a stroller. I would recommend putting EVERYTHING you need in your registry (even if you think you won’t get it), so you can use your coupon at the end!
Target Baby Registry
As if I needed ANOTHER reason to go to target. They are simply amazing. Once you sign up for a registry at Target, you are eligible for a FREE bag of goodies (worth $50!) with no extra effort required! I made my registry online, then went in the store and talked to customer service and they gave me my bag! If you prefer to register in stores, just tell them when you get your scanner that you haven’t gotten your gift yet! This package included a bottle, diaper, wipes, coupons, medicine sample, cream, and lotion. It varies by store, but for the price of free you can’t beat it! You can start your registry here! Target will also help make suggestion for trusted brands when you are registering. Like Amazon, Target gives a completion coupon eight weeks prior to your big day for 15% off!
Walmart Baby Registry
Right now, Walmart doesn’t have any fun promotions like the others, but I still think it’s just as important to register here. In my family, the older folks do not shop online. They also do not shop at Target. So, Walmart was the only universally known store they went to! It’s important to have a registry made here so they can easily access what YOU want for the baby. If you don’t, you’ll end up with doubles of things you already have, and a bunch of stuff you don’t want! Even if it’s just a small list, make a registry here!
Really, for me, any more than 3 registries was overwhelming! You want to choose exactly what you want, and not get doubles of everything. So, I couldn’t have done any more than 3. These are truly the best 3 registries for me! I hope you get everything your heart desires for your little bundle of joy!
