First baby checklist.

Many of my friends have asked for the checklist I used when I was buying things for Aiden. I used this list to create my registry and it helped so much. Going to do your registry is overwhelming to say the least. There are SO many things that a new baby needs. I used this checklist to monitor what I bought and what I registered for. The good new is, you can use most of it for your future children as well. Just make sure you get gender neutral on some of the big ticket items like cribs, swings, bouncers, etc.

Some baby registry advice:
1. Get your friends opinions on things they loved - it will help you narrow down choices
2. Go to the store and try out the different stroller. Fold them up, walk around with them, see how heavy they are, that way you know what you are getting yourself into!
3. Start online. Research your crib and bedding and see which one you like, then add them to your online registry
4. Add diapers to your registry
5. You won't need a high chair for at least 4 months, probably more like 6, so don't register for it unless you know you don't want to buy it for yourself in a few months
6. I can't stress enough, have extra sheets! 
7. Buy a changing table. Leaning over on the floor hurts, and babies will get pee or poop on your bed! 
8. Do not buy the little 5 ounce bottles. Just get the 9 ounce ones from the beginning. You will need the big ones eventually and it will save you time and money from having to go out and get new ones when your baby starts drinking more!

I hope this list helps you all as much as it helped me!
