I started Babylist when I was pregnant for the first time with my son Max. I’ve spent the past six years talking to awesome pregnant women about their baby registries (and having my second son, Ben). I live and breathe baby products and wanted to share my favorites with you! Also, be sure to visit the Babylist Best Guides for all the great baby gear feedback we’ve gathered from thousands of parents just like you.

Baby Gear

I am so excited to try out this swing. It takes up less floor space than a traditional swing and looks a lot better.

$159.00

On the Go

This is a luxe purchase but I LOVE IT. It’s extremely light and has both a canopy and a “dream drape” that will fully shade a sleeping baby in the car.

Nuna PIPA Infant Car Seat

$299.95

Strollers are so hard. We had a City Mini with our first, and I’m sticking with it. This stroller is affordable, high quality and is awesome in an urban environment.

Once a stranger clapped for me when I put it into the trunk of my car (while holding baby). I felt like a super star.

(Note: you can buy infant car seat adapters for the stroller that work with many different brands of car seats, though not the Nuna PIPA I mention above.)

So, What is Babylist?

Babylist is a free, all-in-one baby registry that lets you add any item from any store (including Honest Company), as well as things like help, favors and cash funds. Your registry should be as unique as you are. Start your Babylist now.

For our first, we had a Moby wrap and I loved it. I’m really excited to try out the Solly baby wrap – I love the patterns. I will probably also try the Baby K’tan.

We used a wrap for about the first 4 months.

Natural & Grey Stripe Solly Baby Wrap - Natural & Grey Stripe

$65.00

I skipped the infant insert (and used a baby wrap) and once baby had head control moved to an Ergobaby. I am still a huge fan of the classic Ergobaby carrier. You can wear baby on your front, and move to the back as baby gets bigger. I love this teal version.

Clothing & Accessories

We’re not finding out if the baby is a boy or girl. (I think that Hanna Andersson has about the cutest girl clothes anywhere.)

Hanna Andersson - Snuggle Romper - size 2-6 months

$35.00

Zutano fleece baby booties have a two-snap design system so its extra comfy for babies but also keeps the booties on until you take them off.

Zutano Cozie Fleece Baby Booties

$21.00

Primary is a new store has very affordable plain, bright baby onesies.

Primary Babysuit Set (7 onesies) - size 3-6 months

$50.00

Health + Safety

Bath time was one of the most fun things we did with our first. I got into the bath tub with him and he would kick and swim. I can’t wait to try out the Otteroo.

Otteroo Baby Floatie

$29.99

Diapering

I love the look and philosophy of gDiapers. We will be trying these for sure. With our first, we exclusively cloth diapered for 6 months until we gave up. This time we’re going to be taking a more hybrid approach.

Honest diapers are lovely. A gift card is the best way to go for receiving the gift of diapers.

Honest Gift Card

$10.00

I love the idea of using a great backpack for a diaper bag. A Kånken or a Herschel is cool.

(For our first, we got a Diaper Dude. It was ugly, cheap material and was just kind of lame.)

Nursery and Decor

I love a lot at Land of Nod, especially their changing pad covers and sheets.

Deep Space Changing Pad Cover

$35.00

Health & Safety

We don’t need this, but hopefully I have your attention. Have a smoke detector in baby’s room and a carbon monoxide detector somewhere in the house. This is more important than most things on this list.

Kidde Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm

$24.48

It Takes a Village (Help & Favors)

Adoption Fund Donation

Adoption costs on average between $30,000-$40,000, which often doesn’t include additional travel costs and attorney fees. Give your friends and family a chance to chip in. You can even set up a secure way to donate online via your Babylist registry page.
