Below is also a list of items that we found we didn’t end up using at all with our girls and wish we didn’t spend money on. You may find that your baby’s love them and that is great too but we thought we’d try and help eliminate unnecessary spending by sharing a few things we did not need.
*Changing Table/Pad – We just used the travel changing pad in the diaper bag and put it on the floor. We found it so much more convenient to change baby wherever needed than walking to the other room to change.
*Standing Swing – This is one that lots of babies love but ours just didn’t. We registered and got a nice expensive one but neither of our girls liked it and we only used it a handful of times.
*Wipe Warmer – Wipes just out of the bag worked fine and eliminated the amount of time for diaper changes.
*Bottle Packs – I would stay away from registering for any packs of bottles in the beginning. Some babies only will take certain bottles. We got tons of sample bottles from baby registry boxes (Great free ones with Amazon, Target, and Buy Buy Baby registries) and chose the best bottles that worked for our babies from those once they were born.

Overall all babies are different and like different things. You may find that some of these things don’t work for your little while others do. It is crazy how different my two girls have been so far but these are all items that we found they both loved. Hopefully, this list helps you put together a great registry and you can find products that work for your little ones. Congratulations and good luck! Being a mom is the best job in the world!
