Things you DON’T need on your baby registry

12 baby items everyone SAYS you need for your new baby, but you don’t!

Here’s my list of what things you DON’T need on your baby registry!

(Check out this post if you need my list of what you DO need to register for!!)

Everyone has opinions on all things baby: your mother, mother-in-law, best friend, best friend’s mom, all the ladies at church, the random person in the grocery store who notices you’re pregnant… they will all (very) freely share their opinions with you.

They’re trying to be kind and helpful (it helps to remind yourself of this!), but sometimes, honestly, it’s bad advice that goes against what doctors and research says now. Take in the advice, sure, but weigh it against “best practice” .

Things have changed since your grandmother had kids (we have car seats now, for example…haha). DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH, mama. There aren’t many things more important than keeping your baby safe and healthy.

Some items people recommend don’t necessarily go against “best practice”, they just aren’t necessary. Check out this list of 12 things you don’t need on your baby registry.

Let me know in the comments if I missed something, or if I really offended you because you love an item on my list! 😉 No judgement from me, mama!
