Which Baby Registry Should I Sign Up For?

Congrats! As you prepare for your precious and exciting new baby, you might be wondering which baby registry to join. The answer is simple: all of them!

I think you should sign up for as many as you can. If it’s free to register, then why not?

You should absolutely register at every store that you can for two reasons:

  1. The Gift Bag
  2. Completion codes and discounts!

All the big registries offer coupons on any items not purchased from your registry when the baby is born. These can be anywhere from 15-20% off. That is big savings on baby gear!

If you pick the item from the cheapest store and then stack the completion code, you will be getting a nice discount on some big stuff. That’s why I suggest signing up for all the registries- that way, you have the coupons no matter which store is cheapest at the moment.

Amazon Baby Registry

Of course, Amazon has a baby registry! The Amazon baby registry is excellent, not only because Amazon has everything you need but because they make it super easy for people to send you gifts.  If you only sign up for one registry, it should be this one.

If you sign up with Amazon and someone makes a purchase, you will also get a Welcome Box. Although the contents vary, you will find goodies in the Welcome Box. Previous box recipients have received a parenting book and $35 worth of baby supplies.

Baby Registry Tips and Tricks:

Be Generous With Yourself

Add all the big items you want and need. Better to add more stuff than regret not having them on later. Add some small stuff and basics as well. 

Don’t Forget the Small and the Basics

Add all the small stuff you think you may need. That way, you can also get coupon codes on small items- it adds up. Think diapers, wipes, nursing pads, nail clippers, milk storage bags, cloth diapers, etc. This is also great if you have a baby shower- someone can buy something small in their budget. 

Fudge Your Due Date

Set your due date before your actual due date. That way, you can get the completion coupon before you have the baby (hopefully) and prepare accordingly.

Using the completion code can save you a lot of money on the big and small stuff.
