10 Highly Recommended Must-Haves for Your Baby Shower Registry

Tackling a baby registry is no easy fete, friends. Having just gone through the process myself, I learned that there's a whole lot more to it than clicking 'add' for all the cute stuff (those tiny outfits are dangerous!). There's reading reviews, asking parent friends what they loved best and then figuring out what will work best for you. Thankfully I had a whole lotta mama (and papa) friends who were willing to lend advice, so I thought I'd share the top 10 items that were recommended to us for our babe on the way. See the full list below!

This was one of the most recommended items that we're so excited to use with our baby boy! The DockATot is a sleeper/lounger/lifesaver that is claimed to be \"the next best thing to the womb\" and acts as a second layer of swaddling. It also helps baby transition easily from a bassinet to crib, is great for traveling and super easy to tote around if you don't want to drag a travel crib with you everywhere. It also features breathable fabric which totally set my mind at ease! And just incase there are any messes, the cover easily zips off for washing.

As with any baby product, there are sooo many options out there to choose from. When it came time to register for a baby carrier, there was no doubt in my mind we were going to try the Solly Baby wrap. Not only had we heard wonderful things about this carrier in the months leading up to even becoming pregnant, but I've seen it in action on friends and even complete strangers (who highly praised it when I asked if they loved it!). I always envisioned a carrier to be used outside of the home mainly, but I can already see us using the Solly Baby Wrap a LOT around the house to soothe baby and have hands-free time, simultaneously.

Reviews came in handy BIG time when stroller and car seat shopping. We finally settled on NUNA Tavo Stroller and coordinating Pipa car seat. Not only do we love the sleek, modern style but appreciated that NUNA had helpful videos of their products. A few of our requirements when researching were: lightweight and quick setup, ultimate safety features and non-toxic materials. This design fits all of those categories and more.

We had heard great things about the 4moms mamaRoo, but ultimately chose the NUNA Leaf Bouncer for two reasons: 1. growth potential (you can sit in this bouncer as an adult, that's how sturdy it is!) and 2. the fact that this bouncer is motor-free. You can also use the NUNA Wind as a motor attachment if you wish but I found it nice to have the option for motor-free.

The puj tub was by far the most recommended baby bath tub! We ended up not choosing it merely because our sink faucets are a bit lower than we'd like and it wouldn't have worked well for us personally, but I so wish it had because of the foldable quality for easy storage and it's slip resistant quality. We went with this option instead—not so stylish, but we liked the net feature for those first few months.
