Sometimes a new mama needs a little more convincing to know that certain items on the suggestions list definitely make the cut.
Even with eight nieces and nephews (yes, eight), you would think by my baby registry tactic that I had never come in contact with a child. I looked at the list that the woman at my registry hub of choice (Giggle) handed me merely as a suggestion and thought, “we could do without that” one too many times. And my fiancé, never having held a baby before Oliver, lovingly confirmed each of my ridiculous sentiments.
While you may not be as resistant to “the list” as we were, there are probably a few items that have you thinking: “is this a necessity or a luxury?” Chances are, if they are on that list, then it’s probably been a saving grace for some other parent, and it just might be for you too.
Here are a few items I pouted about but in the end have turned out to be my top registry items.
