Click through the gallery to see a few of my registry selections. Happy registering!
aden + anadis Swaddle Blankets 1 of 8I've heard from so many moms and dads that the aden + anadis swaddle blankets are the best on the market. They are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive for blankets - so they better be awesome!
$47.40 for four blankets from Amazon.com
Baby Gate 2 of 8Our new home is two stories, so I needed a way to keep the baby (and the puppies) off the stairs. I'm lovin' the fact that this baby gate is a walk-through version, so I can get through it with one hand.
$33.59 for the Regalo Easy Step Walk Thru Gate from Amazon.com
Crying is for Babies 3 of 8I'll be hanging this letterpress print - as well as the matching one that reads "You're getting very sleepy" - up in our baby's nursery.
$35 for this adorable letterpress print from Etsy.com
Games to Play with Babies 4 of 8I have very little childcare experience, especially with babies, so I'm hoping this book gives me loads of ideas for baby games.
$10.17 for Games to Play with Babies from Amazon.com
JJ Cole Diaper Bag 5 of 8Some women want a really cute and girly diaper bag. I want a diaper bag that my husband will happily carry around. Hence, this unisex JJ Cole bag, which seems durable and sturdy, too.
$61.19 for JJ Cole Diaper Bag from Amazon.com
My Breast Friend 6 of 8Every momma I know says that the My Breast Friend is a lifesaver. I did read that it is sprayed with chemicals (to prevent it from catching on fire) so I plan to cover it in a blanket and not put my baby directly on it.
$34.88 for My Breast Friend from Amazon.com
sophie 7 of 8If every baby in France is so nuts over this toy, I figure there must be something to it.
$17.78 for Sophie the Giraffe from Amazon.com
The Velveteen Rabbit 8 of 8This tear-jerker was my favorite as a child, so I can't wait to read it to my little one.
$7.99 for The Velveteen Rabbit from Amazon.com
