Planning and preparing for your baby

Congratulations! Chances are if you are reading this, you are expecting a new addition to your family. This is such an exciting time, with lots of planning and preparing! One of the best gifts you can give to yourself (and your new little one) is to put together a baby registry. Having a registry lets your family and friends know what you would like to have on hand for baby without having to worry about receiving doubles or triples of certain items; or worse, receiving a green and yellow crocheted bottle cozy from Great Aunt Betsy!

Your first item of business will be to choose one or two stores that specialize in baby gear and make sure they offer a baby registry. Now the fun begins! Whether you choose an online retailer or visit a store, you will get to browse, compare and then put together your wish list.

“How do I know what to choose?” you might ask. There are many books and websites available that will offer you a variety of lists that will help you pinpoint the items you may need. When you begin your browsing, you are going to want everything for your special little angel. The reality is that you really won’t need everything that is offered.
