Here is a list of my most recommended items that I had marked as Must-Have for my baby registry:
1. This Graco My View 4 in 1 Bassinet For A Peaceful Night’s Sleep
Our baby has a crib in his nursery, but while he’s still tiny we want to keep him in our room. This bassinet has been super helpful for us. It converts from bassinet for newborns to a playpen for toddlers. The great thing about it is that it’s smaller than a normal playpen so fits beside my bed without taking up a ton of room and really easy to put together.
2. This Super Convenient Baby Diaper Bag Backpack
I really wish they had these with my first son. This diaper bag is so convenient to have when a diaper change is needed because it converts into a changing table! You won’t have to change your baby in a yucky bathroom. Plus, it is very roomy and has plenty of space to put everything.
3. A Diaper Genie For All Those Stinky Diapers
The Playtex Diaper Genie is something that I loved having with my first son and knew I needed to get another one. It’s a diaper disposal system that keeps your baby’s dirty diapers out of sight and out of smell. The Diaper Genie also features a foot pedal that makes it easy to open and close the lid without having to use your hands. And it’s also easy to empty, so you don’t have to worry about the mess. Don’t forget to also add some of the bag refills!
4. Keep Baby Clean With This Baby Shopping Cart & High Chair Cover
This is awesome to keep in your car when you’re out-and-about with your baby. It can fit in shopping carts and inside high chairs when going to restaurants to keep your baby clean.
5. Stroll in Style With This Safety 1st Smooth Ride Travel System Stroller
When I was looking for a stroller, I was pulling my hair out because everything was so expensive. Luckily, I came across this one and added it to my registry and so happy I did. It is lightweight and really easy to fold up. Plus, it comes with a baby carrier carseat and base.
6. Don’t Cry Over Spilled Milk With These Haakaa Ladybug Breast Milk Collectors
If you are planning on nursing, these are really nice to have to collect any leaking milk you may be experiencing. You may be surprised at how much you can collect without having to do any pumping just by wearing these!
7. Keep Baby Snug in These Microfleece Sleepbag Wearable Blankets
Since it isn’t recommended for babies to have blankets inside their cribs or bassinets because of suffocation, these wearable sleep blankets will keep baby nice and warn without the risks. They easily unzip so late night diaper changes aren’t traumatic and you and baby can get some rest.

7. Entertain Baby with this Crab Crib Mobile
My son has really enjoyed his crab crib mobile. It makes life so much easier whenever I need to put him down in his bassinet. He is simply mesmerized by it. This one in particular rotates and can connect to bluetooth. Plus, the dangling sea creatures are pretty adorable!
