Baby Registry Checklist For New Moms

I remember having the hardest time deciding what to register for when I was pregnant. I wasn’t sure what items I would or wouldn’t need, or which version to get since there were SO many options. This baby registry checklist for new moms includes all of the items you will actually use! I added specific suggestions for the items that I loved the most!

In The Nursery


Choosing a convertible crib like this will ensure you get years of use out of your purchase.




Changing Table

Choosing a dresser with changing table included will take up less space in your nursery.

Changing Pad


Diaper Pail

Unlike other brands the Ubbi diaper pail doesn’t require special bags AND actually keeps the odor in! I highly recommend!

Rocking Chair

Choose a rocking chair or glider that is most comfortable for you. You will be spending a LOT of time in this chair while feeding your baby.

Clothes Hamper

Sound Machine

This sound machine includes soothing sounds and also works as a nightlight! A sound machine will help block out other noises so your baby can sleep. It can also help your baby sleep away from home, just bring along the sounds of your nursery!

Baby Blanket


Sleep Sacks

My son slept so good in his HALO sleep sacks! Since baby’s can’t use blankets these wearable blankets are the perfect way to keep your baby warm.

Baby Monitor



Boppy Pillow

Baby Gym

My son LOVED this baby gym. The 5-in-1 feature allowed him to play in it all throughout his first year! It came with so many different detachable toys, including one that lit up and played music! I would definitely buy this activity gym again.




Dr. Brown’s bottles have a lot of pieces but they help prevent your baby from having gas, which can be painful. I would definitely say they are worth the trouble!

Bottle Sanitizer

Bottle Warmer

Bottle Brushes

Drying Rack

This deluxe drying station was perfect for all of the little pieces that come with Dr. Brown’s bottles.

Breast Pump

Milk Storage

Nursing Covers

Burp Cloths



This convertible highchair will be comfortable for your little one, with options from infant to toddler, and is so easy to clean!

Dish Sets




Baby’s look so snuggly in their adorable pajamas. Always choose zippers over snaps, they can be a nightmare in a dark nursery with a squirmy baby!







Babies don’t necessarily NEED shoes, but I was happy to have them when we took more formal pictures.


Bath Tub

Choose a tub like this that will alert you when your baby’s water is too warm. This really gave me peace of mind when my son was a tiny newborn.

Infant Bath Wash


Wash Cloths


Bath Toys


Diaper Bag

I LOVE my JuJuBe diaper backpack and still use it now, 2 1/2 years later! It still looks like new and the backpack option makes carrying it with my son in my arms so much easier!


Travel System

I highly recommend this Chicco travel system. It includes a carseat/baby carrier that snaps into the stroller, so you can move your baby without ever waking them up! We still use the stroller forward facing.


Baby Carrier



Baby Gates

Baby Proofing


I have tried ALL of the diapers and Pampers Pure diapers and wipes are, by far, my favorite. No leaks, no blowouts, no skin irritation, and the quality of the wipes are just as amazing!



I almost gave up on pacifiers until I found these, they are the only ones my son would take. If these don’t work for you and you want your baby to take a pacifier, keep trying until you find the right one for them!

Grooming Kit

Rash Cream



First Aid Kit

This first aid kit will fit perfectly in your diaper bag and will ensure you are always prepared!
