Best Baby Registry Ev-ah!


Deciding what kind of gear to get for your baby can be slightly overwhelming. On the one hand, some people will tell you that you need nothing but a car seat and a few pairs of pjs. Others will tell you that you have to have ALL THE THINGS because of course babies need a teepee for their pee pee.

There’s no denying that there’s a LOT of baby stuff out there. So, wouldn’t it be nice to create a registry list that’s got nothing but the things you really want and need?

That’s why I absolutely LOVE BabyList.

It’s a baby registry that allows you to register for anything you what you want from anywhere online. All you have to do is download the BabyList app on your phone or tablet, or install the browser button on your desktop and as you come across something you like the look of, just click and it’s added to your list.

Is this not brilliant like David Beckham’s bum? I know, right!

Register for Standard Gear, Hard-to-Find Stuff & Even Help

You can register for the usuals like car seats and Jolly Jumpers but then you can also register for other awesome stuff like, I don’t know, house cleaning, home-cooked meals, a food delivery service or that handmade soap that you order from hippies in Peru. The possibilities are endless. You can even start a college fund and have the money transferred straight to a bank account.


Personalized Help

I love that they have a quiz you can take to help you get more personalized recommendations based on your lifestyle. At the end of the quiz, you get a Quickstart Baby Registry, which is an awesome place to start for the overwhelmed among us. You can also browse their most popular stuff and top-voted products if you need more ideas.

And they’ve got real people available for you to email, live chat or call so you can have in-depth discussions about the pros and cons of cloth diapers, nipple cream or baby legwarmers. Or you can dive into their handy guides for info on everything from baby essentials to specifics on lightweight strollers, travel cribs and a ton of other things.


It’s All in the Details

In addition to building your registry, you can add your family details, your shipping address and even add in your baby shower details! Then, once your registry is all set, just publish it to share with your friends and family so they can start shopping.

Check out Some Kick-Ass Sample Registries

The gal who started BabyList, Natalie, asked me if I would be willing to put my own baby registry together and I said, “Hell to the ya!” and I’ve been adding to it ever since like a brain damaged squirrel preparing for winter.

I tried to pick things that most people in both Canada and the U.S.A would have access to because we all know that you lucky ducks in the U.S. can order anything and it is shipped to your door for free and with a cookie. (Buggers.) I didn’t get into anything in the rest of the world because you guys are all too cool for me and I still get thrown by the term “nappy” so you just know that would have been a disaster. As Colonel Sanders said, “Do what you know and do it well.” (For the record, I have no idea if he said that but it sounds like something he would say so I’m running with it.)

Everything in my registry (for my fake baby, Flick of course) are things I thought I would need if I was starting from scratch again but with the knowledge I have now. Clearly the knowledge I have now dictates buying monkey hats and screwing the change table – priorities, people.

I didn’t register for a stroller because depending on where you live and how you want to use it really changes the kind you buy (if you even need one at all) so I left it off.

Pregnant Chicken’s Kick Ass Registry

Feel free to comment below on things I should add or things that you’ve loved. I’ll keep adding to it when I find cool things so check in every so often.

Do you think I’m a little too excited about a baby that I’m not having? No. I think it’s all good too. (squirrel, nut, nut, squirrel.)

  • I <3 registry cheat sheets. thanks for publishing. havent looked that much into it, but is the graco bucket seat definitely not on that huge recent recall list? other personal (lessons learned) faves I would recommend include: zutano booties, baby Einstein take along tunes, and medela soft shells + earth mama nipple cream for those rough 1st couple weeks breastfeeding.

  • We’ve used for a friend’s baby registry…it sounds a lot like pregnant chicken (although that name is fantastic). My friend’s family is all overseas, so this has made it so easy for everyone to have access. Plus, she hasn’t been limited to one or two stores. She can even put things on there from Etsy and Pinterest! Awesome.

  • Thank you so much for posting this! I had no idea that something like this existed! This will make it so much easier!

  • I’m 22 weeks pregnant and got one of those Baby Safe Feeders as a gift and I’m curious- besides ice cubes and not bananas, what else do you put in yours? It seems like a cool idea just waiting to become a hot mess.

  • Hey Amy, love your blog posts! You don't have any Wee Piggies & Paws on your registry, I have to admit I am a but hurt – what about a stunning espresso custom shadow box with perfectly captured chubby little feet and dimpled hands? or a sterling silver heart pendant of your child's fingerprint to wear around your neck?
    If you post it then hey, a Piggie Fairy might appear and bam! drop one on your lap ;o)
    It would be my pleasure doing something for you, don't hesitate asking… ask away chicky…

  • Hi there – I'm a new fan of yours… I'm currently 32 weeks pregnant with my first, bored shitless at work and I find your blog makes me laugh and fills in my last days at work 🙂 BIG thumbs up for your blog, it's ace!

    I have a question about this post – in particular the Ikea Spoling highchair. I'm currently researching highchairs (did I mention that I'm bored at work?!?) and I looked for this highchair at Ikea Australia (I'm in Melbourne, Aus). It doesn't appear to come with a tray? I love the simplicity of the design but was wondering how you went using it without a tray? I thought highchairs needed a tray for babies to mush up their food and pretty much make a big ol' mess! Would love to know your thoughts.


    Your #1 Australian fan 🙂

  • LOVE, love love your website, and love your registry! Added a few items from your registry to mine (for our first baby) on Amazon…though WHY I BOTHER, I'm not sure, because it seems that NO ONE is actually paying any attention to our registry and are just buying us stuff that THEY want to buy, regardless of whether or not WE want it… (sense the frustration?). This happened with the wedding registry too, I'm not sure why I thought the baby registry would be any different…

  • Any and every registry should have a copy of 'Newborn Necessities'….this book gives a new parent an easy to use charting system for keeping track of baby's feedings and diaper changes.
    When your home for 2 days with this little bundle of joy…and haven't slept since she/he entered the world, and your baby nurse or doctor wants to know how many wet diapers every day, what color the poo is and how much/how often are they eating, you'll be so glad you have this book. You may not have brushed your teeth yet that day, but you will be able to answer these pressing questions with some amount of certainty. listing has a 'look inside' feature, so you can check it out for yourself…

  • i am in love with black out shades, the white noise/night light and i really wish i had a baby bullet!

  • As always love everything you write, you amuse me! I love love loved swaddle designs swaddle blankets. And pediped make the best shoes. And I agree with the post above about Sophie the giraffe, she was a great gift!
