Baby on a Budget

Babylist is the baby registry that lets you add any item from any store including budget baby products for your newborn and baby nursery. Here's baby gear for high quality without the high price.Baby on a Budget

Baby gear doesn’t have to cost a small fortune. From your crib to your high chair, here’s a complete registry of baby gear at affordable prices.


The Boba Wrap works for babies from birth (including preemies), and the incredibly soft material includes a 5% spandex content, making the wrap easy to use for beginner and advanced baby wearers alike.

Boba Wrap Classic Baby Carrier


The carrier can be used with babies as small as eight pounds—without an infant insert—and grows with your baby until they are 25 pounds.

BabyBjorn Original Baby Carrier


The SnugRide SnugLock 35 Infant Car Seat is a great infant car seat option. It goes up to 35 lbs, so most babies can use it for more than a year, and it’s easy to install.

Graco SnugRide SnugLock 35 Infant Car Seat


This infant car seat and stroller in one is a great deal! The Key Fit 30 is one of the most popular car seats because it’s so easy to install and to carry. And the stroller doesn’t skimp on extras like a big basket for toys and bags, an adjustable handbar and a parent cupholder. The major drawback is that it only comes in one color.

Chicco Cortina CX Travel System


If you aren’t going to be strolling over rough terrain and want a stroller that easily folds and fits anywhere, this could be your answer. One drawback for the newborn stage—you can’t connect your infant car seat, so you won’t use this until around six months when baby can easily hold up their head. (That’s where a great carrier comes in handy.)

Summer Infant 3Dlite Convenience Stroller


Cosco Scenera NEXT Convertible Car Seat can be forward or rear-facing for up to 40 lbs. This super-affordable convertible car seat also boosts a slim width so that you can fit three across a standard back seat. The seat pad is entirely machine washable too.

Your crib doesn’t need to be the most expensive thing in the nursery. This is a great crib that gets the job done. And with two heights and removable side, it can be adapted into a toddler bed too.

Gulliver Crib



Babies spit up. Luckily these absorbent burp cloths can help keep you dry. This is four-pack, and we recommend registering for two.

Carter's Burp Cloth (4 Pack)


This four-pack of longsleeve bodysuits will keep your little one warm—and they’re pretty cute too.

Carter's Long Sleeve Bodysuits (4 Pack)


This five-pack makes it easy to have lots of bodysuits at the ready when your little one arrives. Register for them in a few different sizes to cover baby’s first year.

Burt's Bees Baby Organic Short Sleeve Bodysuit (5 Pack)


These will keep little toes warm. Plus they’re all white so you won’t have to worry about finding a match.

Gerber Organic Cotton Wiggle Proof White Bootie Socks


This sun hat has a huge brim, and the band around the head has a toggle so that it grows with your baby.

The Boppy breastfeeding pillow curves around your waist to hold your baby while you are nursing, making it so much easier on your arms and shoulders.

Boppy Original Nursing Pillow and Positioner


The Philips Avent is a great bottle whether you are feeding your baby formula or expressed breast milk. This bottle starter kit comes with four bottles, a trainer cup, formula dispenser, pacifier and bottle brush.

Philips Avent Anti-colic with AirFree Vent Newborn Starter Set


If you are only going to be pumping occasionally, a hand pump is a good and inexpensive solution.

Medela Harmony Manual Breast Pump


This popular high chair is easy to clean and easy on the wallet too.

Antilop High Chair



Pampers Swaddlers are the preferred brand at most hospitals, and parents love the wetness indicator strip. Register for some newborn, size 1 and size 2 diapers, since you will need them all in the first six months.

Pampers Swaddlers Diapers

Skipping a dedicated changing table and putting a changing pad on top of an existing dresser or other surface can save money. Then use a changing pad cover over it so it will get dirty instead of the changing pad.

Summer 2-Sided Changing Pad


These versatile waterproof pads can be a lifesaver! Use them on top of your changing pad cover, as an on-the-go changing station, for tummy time or many other uses.

Munchkin Waterproof Changing Pad Liners (3-Pack)


Yep, babies dirty a lot of diapers! This diaper pail won’t help you change them, but it will minimize their smell. Note: Diaper Genies do require specific refills that can make the cost add up.

Diaper Genie Essentials


Some parents skip a diaper bag altogether and use a backpack or purse that they already have, but if you’re out with baby a lot, a diaper bag with lots of pockets can be nice to have.

Baby Essentials Striped Diaper Bag Tote



It fits in your sink, has a sling for newborns and grows with your baby. What more could you want? And the price is just right. (Also, a tub is an easy thing to skip.)

The First Years Sure Comfort Deluxe Newborn to Toddler Tub with Sling


This ultrasoft 10-pack of washcloths is great to have around for bathtime and beyond. (You could also skip this and use your own washcloths on the baby.)

Spasilk Soft Terry Washcloth (10 Pack)


Health & Safety

This first aid kit has all of your essentials (thermometer, nose aspirator, nail clippers) as well as a brush, comb, toothbrush and more.

The First Years American Red Cross Deluxe Baby Healthcare and Grooming Kit


This is a great inexpensive audio monitor so you can listen in on baby when they’re sleeping. If you’re interested in a video monitor, the Anmeate monitor is an inexpensive option.

VTech DM221 Safe & Sound Digital Audio Baby Monitor



Simple and stylish, this activity mat can be used from birth and is easy to take to grandma’s too.

Infantino Square Twist and Fold Activity Gym


This is one of our favorites, but we suggest adding a few of your family favorites to your registry too. (And don’t forget: you add requests for preloved books to your registry!)
