Favorite Registry Items with Babies "R" Us! {+$100 Gift Card Giveaway!}



Preparing for baby is one of the most special times in an expectant mother's life--but it's also one of the most overwhelming times too!  I remember when I was pregnant with Ethan and the very thought of registering for his arrival was both fun and terrifying at the same time!  What brand should I buy?  Do I need a bassinet?  Did I really need a wipe warmer and snot sucker?  What if my baby hates the pacifier?  Should I buy ten different kinds to make sure?!  Friends and blogs are a great resource, but even their opinions can differ from item to item.

Well there is good news for expecting mamas {I wish they had this when I was pregnant!}...Babies“R”Us Standalone stores now have a Personal Registry Partner at the registry desk and Category Experts for Gear, Nursery, Wardrobe, and Baby Care on the sales floor. These experts who make-up the Dream Registry Team, will provide great service and help guide parents through the registry process and product selection. After meeting the Personal Registry Partner and Category Experts, registrants will leave the store feeling confident in their product choices they made after registering.  It's like having a personal shopper for your registry...amazing, right?!

Don't have a store nearby?  They also have a Babies "R" Us app to help you navigate through this daunting process!  You can create and download your registry, share with family and friends, search for products and create a checklist to help prepare for baby's arrival.

Best of all, Babies "R" Us is hosting a registry party on January 16th from 11am to 12pm (at standalone stores only) where you can get personalized help from their dream registry team along with the chance to win prizes and meet other parents-to-be!  So fun!

Are you expecting a new baby?  What items are you planning to put on your Babies "R" Us registry?  Tell me in the comments below for a chance to win a $100 Babies "R" Us gift card!

  2. I am expecting - OUR THIRD. Seems crazy to say this and while I don't anticipate a shower I am registering for some necessary items for those who wish to spoil us (as well as the discount when I need to buy it all). New swaddles, another convertible car seat, a mamaroo, a double stroller (can't decide between the baby jogger and the bob) and an extra camera for our motorola monitor.

  34. We are expecting our second. This time around, I might find myself splurging on a couple items we didn't know about the first time around (Mamaroo). I was also looking into new baby monitors. We currently have the Motorola video monitor. It's worked great for 3 years, however, the night camera produces a rather fuzzy image unless it's right up close. How does the summer infant camera do at night?
