There are a lot of choices to make when you’re building your baby registry. Ever think it might be helpful to get a peek into what other parents-to-be are adding to their registries so you can see how your choices stack up? Now you can.

When we see the same baby products popping up again and again on our customers’ registries, we stop and take notice. And you should too. Checking out what other parents just like you have on their baby registries is a great way to see what types of gear others are the most excited about and help you narrow down products and make decisions on what to add to your own registry.

Let the countdown begin—these are Babylist’s top 25 most registered-for products of 2021!

25. Pampers Swaddlers

It’s no surprise that a mega-pack of diapers makes the 25th spot on our most registered list. Pampers Swaddlers are a popular choice for their super-soft feel, flexible fit and of course their absorbency. The newborn size has an umbilical cord notch perfect for sensitive tummies and there’s a wetness indicator line on the front that lets you know when it’s time for a change.

24. Boba Wrap

There are lots of baby carriers and wraps to choose from, but Babylist parents keep coming back to the Boba. That’s because it’s clutch for keeping your little one close—especially during those first few extra-fussy months. The Boba works from day one (even with preemies) and fits parents of all sizes. It does take a bit of practice, but once you get it down, it will soon become second nature.

23. Muslin Burp Cloths

Babylist parents are in on the secret: you can never have too many burp cloths. These six-layer cotton muslin cloths are a registry staple. They’re super soft and ultra-absorbent so they’re ready to tackle all the messes. (And trust us when we say there will be many.) They’re also really well-priced, always a plus.

22. Copper Pearl Bandana Bibs

Bandana bibs are more than just cute. (And they are really cute.) They’re an easy, comfy way to catch spit-up, drool and whatever else your little one projects your way. This set from Copper Pearl comes in tons of fun colors and patterns and is made from 100% cotton knit, making the bibs both soft and absorbent. Lots of Babylist parents register for two packs of these bibs to have one for every day of the week.

21. Summer Changing Pad

Affordable and ultra-durable, this changing pad will quickly become a workhorse around your house once baby arrives. The waterproof surface wipes clean easily and the edges are contoured to help keep your little one from rolling off. If you live in a two-story home, you may want to consider adding a second to your registry so you can set up a changing station on each floor.

20. FridaBaby Accu-Dose Pacifier

It’s no fun thinking about your baby getting sick, so it’s no wonder so many Babylist parents add this medicine dispenser to their registry for a little peace of mind. The pace-style dispenser sends meds to the side of your baby’s cheek, which is where doctors recommend it goes to prevent spit-ups and ensure your baby swallows the whole dose. The dosage markings are easy to read and the pacifier does double duty as a regular paci as well.

19. Where the Wild Things Are

A staple in kid lit since its publication in the 1960s, lots of parents want to kick off their baby’s library with this classic picture book. This special commemorative edition celebrates 40 years of this imaginative tale and will quickly become a bedtime staple.

18. Car Mirror

It’s safer for your baby to remain rear-facing while riding in the car as long as your seat allows for it, but it can be tough to get a good view of what’s going on in the back seat when your little one is facing the opposite way. This extra-wide backseat mirror solves for that. It offers clear visibility and an extra-wide, extra-tall view of your baby and is made from shatterproof material in case of a crash. It also features a universal fit and installs in seconds.

17. Goodnight Moon

“Goodnight stars. Goodnight air. Goodnight noises everywhere.” Parents have been reading this classic bedtime story to their little ones for generations, so it’s no surprise this picture book lands the 17th spot on our most registered-for list. The quiet poetry and gentle illustrations make for a soothing end to any busy day.

16. Philips Avent Newborn Bottle Gift Set

There are lots of different bottles to choose from when you’re building your baby registry, but Babylist parents choose Philips Avent the most. Known for their flexible, wide nipples and hourglass-shaped base, these bottles are easy to drink from and just as easy to hold. This set comes with five bottles in two different sizes, a few extra nipples, two pacifiers, seven sealing discs for milk storage and a bottle brush.

15. FridaBaby NoseFrida

Did you ever imagine that a tool used to suck your own baby’s snot would make it into the top 15 most registered-for baby products list? Welcome to parenthood. FridaBaby’s Snotsucker sounds gross but is actually genius. It’s the best way to clear teeny, tiny nasal passageways when they’re stuffy (which is often). And don’t worry—the Snotsucker comes with disposable filters to prevent your little one’s mucus and germs from, let’s say, mixing, with your own.

To-Do: Create Your Babylist

With Babylist, you can add any item from any store onto ONE registry. You’ll even get a Hello Baby Box full of free (amazing!) goodies.

14. Skip Hop Avocado Stroller Toy

Everyone loves avocados! This sweet stroller toy is a Babylist parent fave. The two halves open and close for endless entertainment and there’s a rattle ball “pit” on the inside for added fun. There’s also a loop so you can attach it to your stroller or a play gym.

13. Skip Hop Moby Bathtub

Skip Hop snags another spot on our most registered-for list with their Moby Bathtub, the most popular tub pick for Babylist parents-to-be. The Moby goes the distance—you’ll be able to use it from day one through toddlerhood. There’s a no-slip textured inside and a swivel hook on the back for convenient hanging storage.

12. Baby Signs

If you’re interested in teaching your baby sign language, you’re not alone based on where this book lands on our list. Sign language is a great way for babies to express themselves and their needs long before they’re able to talk. This board book covers all the essential signs through clear, vibrant illustrations.

11. Crane Drop Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

A humidifier may not be the most exciting item you’ll add to your baby registry, but it will prove to be one of the most useful. Humidifiers add moisture back into the air and help provide relief from congestion. They’re especially useful during the cold winter months or when your baby isn’t feeling well. Parents love this classic model from Crane. It’s well-priced, features an auto-off feature when the (removable) tank is empty, and you won’t have to worry about changing out filters since they’re not needed.

10. Burt's Bees Baby Organic Burp Cloths

These basic burp cloths from organic favorite Burt’s Bees snag the #10 spot on our list thanks to their price, softness and of course usefulness. They’re made from organic cotton and do a great job mopping up messes and protecting your clothes from spit-up situations. Because of their larger size, they work as a clean spot for quick diaper changes on the go too.

9. Earth Mama Organic Nipple Butter

The secret is out: Earth Mama Nipple Butter is simply the best. While lots of other nipple creams are thick and sticky, Earth Mama’s formulation glides on easily and doesn’t leave behind any yucky residue. It’s soothing, organic and doesn’t even have to be wiped off before nursing.

8. Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes

It can be tricky to find a baby wipe that’s friendly to sensitive skin but also gets the job done of actually cleaning your baby’s bottom. Pampers Sensitive Wipes accomplish both—really well. They’re made from 99% water so they’re soft and gentle on your baby’s skin, but they’re also thick enough to get the job done without a ton of effort.

7. The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Odds are you remember this book from your own childhood, which is likely why so many parents-to-be want to share it with the next generation. The bright collage-style illustrations and repetitive text will help teach your little on counting and days of the week. This board book edition is extra-sturdy and easy for tiny hands to hold.

6. Sophie the Giraffe Teether

Looks like we all want to be just a little bit French. Sophie, France’s favorite giraffe teether, ranks sixth on our list of products Babylist parents-to-be just can’t get enough of. It’s likely due to Sophie’s good looks, of course, but also because she’s made from 100% natural rubber and the perfect size and shape for babies to grip onto and chew, chew, chew. Oui, oui, Sophie!

5. Boon Lawn Countertop Drying Rack

Did you ever think a drying rack could look so cool? The Boon Lawn is by far our most registered-for drying rack thanks to its modern good looks and its insane practicality factor. Each “blade” of grass helps to keep bottles, nipple, pump parts and whatever else you have upright so air can circulate and everything can drip dry. The oversized square footage leaves plenty of room for all your stuff and there are add-on accessories like twigs and stems to build in even more capacity.

4. FridaBaby Bitty Bundle of Joy

The second FridaBaby product to make our top 25 list, this bundle is a one-stop-shop for everything you need to solve the most common problems for newborns—and for you. It includes Babylist parent favorites like the Nose Frida (for the boogies), the Windi (for the uncomfy gas issues), the SnipperClipper (for the nerve wracking nail cutting) as well as a specially designed peri bottle for postpartum. The collection is the perfect gift for yourself or for any new parent.

3. Baby Healthcare and Grooming Kit

Another essential bundle grabs the number three spot on our list—this time for all of your first aid needs. This 17-piece kit from the American Red Cross comes with everything you need for baby healthcare and grooming. (Think things like a comb, digital thermometer, medicine dispenser and more.) Babylist parents love that the kit contains all of the essentials, including a zippered pouch to store it all and keep you organized

2. Babylist Bottle Box

We couldn’t be happier that Babylist parents love our exclusive bottle box just as much as we do. We created the box to solve for a problem we heard over and over again from new parents: they bought a whole set of bottles, but their baby was refusing to take them. You can think of the box as a bit of a bottle buffet; with an assortment of five different top bottle brands to choose from, your little one gets to sample each until they find just the right fit. And you won’t be stuck with a huge starter set if one particular brand doesn’t end up working out.

1. Hatch Rest Sound Machine, Night Light & Time-to-Rise

Drumroll, please…the Hatch Rest snags the coveted number one spot for Babylist’s most registered-for products! And with Babylist parent reviews like “absolutely amazing” and “why wouldn’t anyone love it?”, it’s easy to see why. The Rest is the ultimate multitasker and will occupy a spot in your nursery from day one until your little one is well into toddlerhood and beyond. It’s designed to create a customized sleeping environment for your baby and encourage healthy sleep routines. It works as a sound machine, a night light and a time-to-rise clock for and can all be controlled right from your phone. Genius!
