There are ten baby items I wish I had known I would need before I had my baby. Many of my picks are not found in the big chain baby registry stores, which is why I never came across them for my baby registry. But since my baby has been born, these are products that I have heard about, seen or have been recommended to me. So if you are a mom-to-be or are shopping for a preggo friend or relative and want to show your baby savvy, here are my top unique registry items that I wished I had known about – before the baby arrived!
A sound that is similar to the womb but is continuous play (on/off switch with volume). No stopping after 20 minutes like other products. So if the baby wakes in the middle of the night, the sound is consistent. Also masks noises in the house.
While not necessary right away, you will be amazed at how time flies and you will soon have a baby with teeth who wants to entertain his or herself. If you have a convertible crib, you may want it to last and these fit that style of crib well.
The first night our baby spit up, I realized how hard it was to take the sheets off! So this enabled me to protect the sheets (less washing) and enabled me to easily remove the soiled fabric to throw in the wash. (get more than one!)
Beautiful addition to nursery decor and the stars that shine on the ceiling are cute, but it will help you see in the dark for those 2am feedings. Other alternatives include an auto-sensing night light or a dimmer switch.
I hope this helps you add to your list or to buy for that special person!
