Noa & Brendan’s Baby Registry

Arrival Date November 2, 2021

We are having a baby! We won't be finding out the sex until birth, so colorful gender neutral is the plan.

Nursery theme is Colors of the Rainbow! Yes, any color! We want gender neutral to be more colorful than neutrals (for nursery and clothes). is an excellent example of what we are going for in terms of vibrant colored gender neutral, from nursery decor to clothes!

We live low waste, minimizing unnecessary purchases and opting for products that will last a lifetime and second-hand goods. We LOVE LOVE LOVE second-hand items and things that are made of sturdy and natural materials.

Our new arrival will be using cloth diapers and cloth wipes, so we will need clothes with enough space to accommodate the bulk. We have found and registered for several baby clothing brands that are sustainable and known to fit over cloth diapers. This also means that we will not be using disposable diapers and wipes, so we ask that you do not purchase these for us!

We love hand-me-downs, second hand, handmade, and sustainable! We shop this way a lot, so here are some tips:

- Shop local thrift stores, Facebook marketplace, or online second hand platforms like Poshmark, Mercari, or Kidizen (see Preloved Clothing for more info)

- If unsure, ask parents or grandparents-to-be what hand-me-downs or second-hand items would be useful or if an item you have in mind would be ok (in case we have something already, or if you have questions)

- Please, no plastic items or disposables

- Shop new at sustainable and cloth diaper approved brands like Primary, Hanna Andersson, Finn + Emma, Babysoy, Monica + Andy, Colored Organics, or if you know/find another sustainable baby brand you think we'd love!

And of course, we would cherish anything you'd like to gift us that is handmade by you or a small business you love! If you do, we prefer natural materials like wood, natural rubber, cotton, bamboo, metal, wool, and food-grade silicones.

*** We ask that you please not gift us plastic or disposables, like plastic toys (new or second hand, except second-hand baby hangers), accessories, baby wipes, disposable diapers, or similar items. Thank you! ***
