Iowa -- that's a great list!
Karrey - you can register at most online diaper stores, and link it to MyRegistry.com to put everything together, if you want. I am SO excited that we have a cloth diaper store opening up next month, but I also bummed that it won't be in time for my next shower! :( I registered with them online anyway, and she said they could do next day pick-up or gift wrap and deliver straight to the shower. So, while it won't be as fun for guests to shop in-store, I do hope to get a few things from there like cloth wipes, wool wash, cute wet bags, and dipes.
I registered for a lot of practical things mostly as my own to-buy list, and to keep track of choices I've researched like car seats, etc. As it turned out, my church choir surprised us with a shower at our end-of-the-year BBQ and bought our crib and mattress off the registry -- so that was really nice! (Even if we never use it.) I had another small shower, and they all bought clothes and little toys, which I expected. I realize no one's really going to want to buy me nursing pads. :)
If they don't buy clothes, people do like to get things like toiletries, Boppies, sheets and receiving blankets, pajamas, diaper bag, baby carriers, washcloths and bath towels, etc. I could not find kimono shirts locally, but I registered online for some organic ones from Sckoon, and my cousin in Germany sent them to me!! :)
The one critical thing we need that we can't wait for someone else to pick up the tab on is the car seat. Hoping to find the one I want on Craig's List!
