Baby Registry Must-Haves

Baby Registry Must-Haves

Congratulations! You're having a baby! This is such an incredibly exciting time but, as a mom, I know how overwhelming it can quickly become, trying to figure out exactly what to add to your registry. What do you need now? What can wait until later? We've put together a list of our baby registry must-haves and hope it helps ease your mind!

Crib Mattress

Babies spend at least 18-20 hours per day sleeping and do the majority of their growing during the first year. With all this time in their cribs, finding a crib mattress that will keep your baby cool, comfortable and, most importantly, safe, is critical. If you're going to invest in something for your baby, invest in the crib mattress. Nook crib mattresses are all GREENGUARD Gold Certified safe, which means they meet the highest standards of air quality. They all come with your choice of supremely soft, antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, water-resistant and machine washable covers!

Feeding Time Essentials

Whether you're planning on breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, setting yourself up for a comfortable journey is the key to success (and less stress!) I recommend buying one of a few bottles and pacifiers to test each of them out until you discover which one your baby loves most. Find a local lactation consultant to help with nursing and look into having your baby's mouth checked for lip or tongue ties. Finally, make sure you've got a comfortable nursing pillow - one that's comfortable, has enough height to support your baby in different feeding positions, whether you're breastfeeding or bottle feeding.

Oh, the Diaper Changes

I'm probably not the first person to tell you you'll be changing lots of diapers! There are tons of changing pad options out there. Our Pebble Changing Pad includes a contoured foam pad and a machine washable, stain-resistant, fully waterproof cover to ease your mind about even the messiest of blowouts. Finding a great changing table that doubles as a dresser for baby's clothes, extra diapers, wipes, etc. is key to those late night diaper changes, too!

Baby's Room Must-Haves

You've got your safe and breathable crib mattress, your changing table and you're ready to feed your baby, but what about a crib? My advice? Find one that's easy to put together, grows with your baby and that doesn't break the bank. Remember, the crib is just the vessel for your crib mattress. Splurge on the mattress, not the crib. Give into your nesting instincts and have fun! Put together styleboards, check out some of our nursery inspirations and find some fun wallpaper, rocking chairs/gliders, rugs and decor! Just remember to keep any decorations or pillows out of your baby's crib to keep it a safe sleep space!
