I’ve been struggling the last few weeks on whether or not to create a baby registry, and if so, who it would be shared with. I understand the purpose of such, an easy way for friends and family to purchase needed gifts. But a huge part of me realizes that Eric and I are so very blessed, that there is really no reason for anyone else to spend money on baby gifts for us. In fact, I can’t really picture having a baby shower, of accepting gifts when Eric and I can certainly purchase everything we need ourselves. So I’m still struggling. I did start a registry though, but mostly for myself, to organize what I need for baby, planning to make these purchases myself in the next 7 months before baby arrives. That said though, I have little idea of what a new mom actually needs, and what is just fluff… If any of you more experienced mommies have a minute, I’d love some advice. My list is saved at the link below, please feel free to point out items you don’t think I’ll need, and maybe some I’ve forgotten to include which might be helpful. Also, keep in mind Eric and I plan to move roughly 3 months after baby is born… Do I set up a complete nursery in our current home, or wait until we’re moved? And if I wait, what would I still need in our current home to get us through until we move?
