So you are having a baby. Congratulations!
So you don’t know what in tarnation you are doing. Join the club.
Where do you start? What will you really use? How many burp clothes do you need?
Enter the Amazon Baby Registry. It will save your life.
When I had my first child I thought I was going to be that mom that only needed a couple of bottles, pacifiers, and blankets. Let me tell you – it only takes one baby for you to want to buy every single possible solution out there.
It might help with teething? Add to cart.
Fixes gas issues? Add to cart.
That’s when Amazon is your best friend. I can’t tell you the number of times I ordered more burp cloths just so I didn’t have to do laundry.
So – I want to save you the time and confusion and tell you exactly what you need on your Amazon Baby Registry. I am not including obvious things like diapers, car seats, and a crib. Duh.
These are just my favorite things that I swear by.
Let me tell you about the Amazon Baby Registry
I love the Amazon Baby Registry because Amazon is so universal. You can add any item from ANY store. You can add diapers to furniture – and everything in between.
Here are some of my favorite things that your Amazon Baby Registry offers:
I love that they have such a wide variety of items – from beautiful minimalistic toys, to the latest kid fads! It’s free to sign up, so start your registry here!

And now to my favorite items. I’ve used these with two kids, and I can’t tell you how much I love these. If you have any favorites, make sure you leave your favorites in the comments!
These are my favorite must-haves you need on your Amazon Baby Registry
Gerber Cloth Diapers for Basic Burp Clothes
When I registered for my baby, I registered for two packs of those pretty burp cloths. But, I quickly found out that I needed multiple packs of thick burp cloths. Who cares if they are pretty? They are just going to get stained. I have since bought upwards of 6 packs of these. If you think 30 burp cloths is too many, then feel free to come do my laundry! So yes, we go through 2-4 cloths a day – and I have a steady supply. These are super thick and are perfect for whatever comes up (literally!).
Snoozy 3 Piece Flannel Waterproof Reversible Changing Pad Liners
I have an entire dresser drawer of these pad liners. They lay on top of my changing pad, and are easily removed when there is an accident – which happens a LOT. This is another thing I’ve bought TONS of – at least 3 packs. Again, who wants to do laundry every day?
Also – I always have these in my diaper bag and when I travel!
Ergobaby Carrier 360
There are a million baby carriers out there. But, I was talking to my friend who is a physical therapist, and she told me how the Ergobaby Carrier 360 is the only one that adequately supports your back.
I was sold.
I use this carrier at home, on trips, on hikes, on walks, in my front yard…EVERYWHERE.
Gerber Baby 2 Pack Zip Front Sleep ‘N Play
Another thing you go through A LOT with a new baby? Sleepers. Sometimes we go through 3 a night. At first, I thought 4-6 sleepers would be enough. That’s a joke! And, when you need upwards of 10 sleepers, who wants to spend a lot of money? I’ve bought so many of these – and they are perfect!
Swaddles and Sleepsacks
Raise your hand if you still don’t know how to swaddle a baby.
Everyone can raise their hands except my husband – he’s a master swaddler. ?
Me? I love these two swaddle options.
For a simple swaddle that zips from the bottom up, you need MANY of these Halo Swaddles and Sleep Sacks. I have many in each size – and use them every night.
These will save your sanity and your baby will sleep amazingly.
Looking for something more? I LOVE this Nested Bean Swaddle! It is weighted, so your baby feels “hugged” all night. This worked wonders for my son who liked to be held all the time. He also started sleeping really well around 2.5 months. Not sure if this was the reason – but I never stopped using it to test it out! ?
Fisher-Price Snuggabunny Cradle ‘N Swing
Is your baby not sleeping?
This swing is the reason my babies sleep so well.
We bought this when my daughter was 3 weeks old, and wish we had bought it sooner. She slept in this swing during naps, and usually during the second half of the night. It prolonged her sleeping by about double. She was taking one hour naps – and then with the swing they grew to 2-3 hours. At night, she will sleep in this for 5-7 hours.
(BTW she didn’t love the swing at first. It did take a few days for her to warm up to it. But, now she loves it!)
Idaho Jones Breast Pump Bag
As a working mom, I have been looking for the PERFECT bag. I recently got this bag, and it is now my go-to purse, diaper bag and work bag. I love it so much. (Also it is AWESOME for travel with little ones.)
The Idaho Jones Breast Pump Bag is awesome because:
? It has room for my breast pump + laptop + diaper bag stuff
? It is pretty!
? It is sturdy and holds SO MUCH STUFF
? It can get dirty and be wiped clean
? It is less than $100
Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor
I researched baby monitors for about 8 months. No joke. I had dozens of lists and tabs open.
What was I researching? Physical monitor vs. phone app? Wireless vs. not wired?
And – we LOVE it!
✅ Because I can keep it on all night without using my phone battery.
✅ Because it has a HUGE range.
✅ Because it is SO SIMPLE to set up and use.
✅ Because I can pass it to my mother-in-law and not need to set up an app for her.
✅ Because it has dark night vision.
✅ Because it zooms in and can pan the room.
So many reasons!
‘Hello World’ Baby Calendar
This is my favorite go-to baby gift. And you NEED one on your registry!
This is for all the mamas that are too busy to keep a baby journal or a baby book. But, for mamas that want to remember when their baby first walked!
Just hang this baby calendar above your changing table, and keep a pen close by. Write down any milestone, trip you take, or little memory!
Believe me – in a couple years you will be SO GRATEFUL that you wrote down things the first year.
Brica Fold N’ Go Travel Bassinet
If you travel at all, you need this.
It’s the perfect bed for babies under about 6 months. We have used this for both kids – on MULTIPLE trips.
It is under $50, folds up in your suitcase, and is PERFECT for bedtime, naps, and just laying down your baby.
I am always sad when baby outgrows this – make sure you register for one today!
Please leave a comment with your favorite baby items! I’d love to know what you registered for!
