Registering after 1st Child

Baby-Registry-EditedI have been following many small shop/mom bosses on Instagram and one {of the many} things I have learned is that many stores you register at for baby you get a free welcome pack.  Some take more work than others, but to get a free gift is always nice!  Many also have completion discounts–a varying percentage off the items remaining on your registry after baby is here.

Now I am not saying you should expect people to buy you things (but if they ask you can have a place to send them to) and you are going to need things to use so making a list of sorts for yourself is always nice.  This can include all your wipes and diapers–and register for a lot of those to get the completion discounts post baby, too!  Nolan uses a baby tooth brushes that have 3 sides on them to speed up the process so I threw 3 on there too!

img_3442img_3443My welcome package came!  So excited!  It contained some great gender neutral items as well as some items I am excited to try and find out how I like!  I am excited to have a couple bottles to make sure to find the kind baby likes before fully committing.

Many packages also contained coupons for the products so if you love them you can continue getting them!

Screen Shot 2018-09-12 at 2.18.54  This is another site that you can add ANYTHING to.  It allows you to import a link, find items from popular sites, and more.  I love I can add small shop items to this list because they have a link–fullsizeoutput_f6d0even an Etsy link will work!  You get a free welcome package when following their criteria as well!  Criteria is rather easy and does not include a purchase.

I feel excited that I have a pretty good staple start to brands to try and replace since Stella’s stuff will be just short of 3 when baby comes.  If anyone asks what we need/want, I can share my link (I am going to consolidate these all into Babylist) and share babylist.  Best wishes!
