Picking a Registry

Here are the best baby registry sites we recommend to make getting what you need easy and stress-free.


Babylist logo

Want any item, from any store, on one registry? Then Babylist is for you. It works like Pinterest and lets you add anything from the web to your baby registry. Like that cute rattle from Etsy, a crib from IKEA, and a cash fund for college (or childcare or diapers or date nights). You can even add help and favor coupons for babysitting, home-cooked meals, dog walking, or anything else your family needs.

Apps: iOS + Android

Customer Review: “Babylist makes it very easy to register for an upcoming baby shower. My friends and family loved being able to see everything in one place. Great app!"

Free shipping on orders over $45 shipped by Babylist. Babylist also lets your gift givers choose which retailer they want to purchase from, and other retailers have their own shipping policy.

Amazon logo

If Amazon is already your go-to shopping destination, look no further. Their prices are low, and their reviews are extensive.

Apps: iOS + Android (The baby registry is part of the main Amazon app, not a separate app)

Customer Review: “Amazon also has one of the most comprehensive and unbiased item review systems on the internet, with many products having thousands of candid user reviews, so you'll know what you're getting yourself into before deciding on an item.”

App Rating: (125,000+ ratings)


Amazon logo
10% off everything left on your registry or 15% if you're an Amazon Family member with Prime.

Free shipping on orders over $49, and free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime members ($99 per year).

Target logo

Who doesn't love a good ol' trip to Target?! Target has got everything a baby registry needs, with the convenience of being...well, Target.

Apps: iOS + Android (it’s “Target Registry” not baby specific).

Customer Review: “Crashes, doesn't load, won't add items to registry. Needs a ton of work. How can a mega store like Target not have the best apps ever? I don't get it.”

Target logo
15% off everything left on your registry.
Target logo
Free shipping with a Target credit card, otherwise choose between a variety of shipping options or in-store pickup.

Buy Buy Baby logo

As comprehensive as Babies “R” Us, but with much better service, buybuy BABY is owned by Bed, Bath, & Beyond, so yes, they also have all those 20% off coupons.

Apps: iOS + Android

Customer Review: “The app has some good features but needs work. Good: scanner app is useful while shopping and adding to the registry. Bad: app is slow to load pages and freezes when you're attempting to add items to the registry.”

Buy Buy Baby logo
A goody bag of free samples and coupons when you register, plus (unspecified) discounts off everything left on your registry after your shower.

Walmart logo

The king of low cost, Walmart offers great budget baby items. Their baby registry is short on perks, but if you’re a regular shopper, the convenience makes up the difference.

Apps: iOS + Android (The baby registry is part of the main Walmart app, not a separate app)

Customer Review: “I would love the app if it worked. I try to use it almost daily but there's always some kind of error. Fix the kinks and I'll love it! Especially the registries.”

Pottery Barn Kids logo

If decking out the nursery is your top priority, Pottery Barn Kids is a favorite among stylish parents. While you won’t find a lot of registry staples like car seats or bottles, you will find well-made furniture and nursery decor that’ll stand the test of time.

Apps: iOS + Android

Customer Review: “The app doesn’t let you browse anymore. All you can do is scan an item instead of looking at their online items and adding to the registry. I don’t have a Pottery Barn Kids nearby so I can’t go to a store and scan. I have to find the web ID online then manually enter the number into the app.”

Crate&kids logo

Crate and Barrel’s spinoff kids brand carries modern, high-quality furniture and decor for your newest family members. There are only about 40 stores (within Crate & Barrel shops) across the US. If you like to see things in person, check to see if there’s one near you.

Apps: iOS (it’s the ‘Gift Registry’ in the Crate&Barrel app, not a separate app)

Customer Review: “I like this app because you can easily tag gifts in store because the app has a scanner built in. Kinda nice to use your own phone to tag items instead of the clunky store machines.”
