Here is everything I have bought for our baby so far. Obviously each person’s needs are unique, so use your judgement on what you think you need – and what to register for vs. try to find used or on sale.
I was able to buy a few key items used: Our bassinet (she threw in organic sheets and a changing pad, so it was a great deal), a jogging stroller (definitely recommend getting it used – but with some caveats – because I doubt you’ll want it as your primary stroller).
I created my registry on Amazon, which I highly recommend. It has almost everything you need on the site and almost everyone has an account. You can still link externally if there is something you want that is not sold on Amazon. Amazon gives you two 20% coupons to use within 60 days of your due date.
Here’s my master list – including things I didn’t think to register for that I bought after baby. If you want to keep your registry from being overwhelming for people, save some of these items until after most people have bought their gifts and then add them to your registry and use your 20% off coupon. We did that and got some big ticket items like a glider, the conversion kits to turn her crib into a bed, a stroller, and her next carseat.
