I'm making my baby registry because my mom is throwing an early baby shower when I go home to florida for family, and we'll have another one when I'm 8ish months along here in California with friends (we need all the help we can get.... don't make enough to even get by on our own each month right now).
What are the absolute essential baby items to have? I plan on baby wearing and breastfeeding exclusively til 1 year. I know it's probably good to have a pump and bottles just in case, and a stroller - right? Do attachment parents not use strollers? I feel like I'm going to NEED a break from babywearing and be able to just put baby in stroller and get my cardio workout on at some point.
I'm making a registry on amazon because there's a huge selection and I can put wedding registry type items/clothes on there as well (we eloped and didn't have a wedding shower).
I don't think we'll need clothes because my husband has 4 girl nieces and 2 boy nephews with tons of clothes for hand me downs- and i have three good friends here with boys who I could get hand me downs from also- and a couple families I nannied for who might give me their daughters hand me downs. so we'll see... I think it's a girl though.
so far I've got:
baby stroller/carseat travel system
a couple different types of cloth diapers
flannel cloth wipes
baby bjorn carrier with organic ergo insert (my friend uses this combo)
electric breast pump
tommee tippee bottles (5 oz ones)
a couple silicone bibs
