Create Your Baby Registry


Many first-time moms will have a baby shower sometime in the third trimester, so now is the time to start working on your baby registry. Whether you want all new items, or plan on mixing some hand-me-downs into your baby's stock, a registry is a helpful way to keep track of what you want and what you need. Plus, friends and family will love knowing what is on there so they can help out.

To avoid getting overwhelmed by all the gear you need, start by registering for just the immediate essentials. Once that is done, gradually build your list to include items you might need down the road and personal items to help make your baby's nursery and wardrobe special.
