As a first time mom I had no idea where to start with my baby registry, so I decided to take the question to Instagram and have moms share their must have registry products so I would know what to add to my own registry.

One thing I learned very quickly is every baby and mother is different. One mom raved about a specific product, but then another mom told me it didn’t work well for her child. I began to realize that sometimes a product works well for one child, but not another and you may not even know it until your baby tries it. Every mom had a different opinion, and that’s okay. Everyone is just doing what is best for their unique baby. In the end, I read through every single recommendation and opinion and then I looked up each product and decided for myself what products I wanted to include in my own registry.

Just remember as you are creating your registry, that it is YOUR registry and YOUR baby. You can include whatever items you want and if it is different from someone else, that is totally okay. Plus I sometimes added extra items I was unsure of, just in case I did want to buy it later. This way I can still use the discounts most registries give you if I decided I end up wanting it.

So here is the list of every item that moms of Instagram recommended me to add to my registry!

I linked everything that was specific. If it didn’t matter what type you registered for, I left it unlinked.
