It really depends on what you already have that you might be able to reuse. I'm not registering for anything because I had a huge shower for DS and he is only 15 mos and I'm having another boy so there's really not that much I need. I do want to get a double stroller and a good baby carrier but I'll probably go buy that myself. Is the stuff you have gender neutral or all pink?
I have a registry, but we will probably only get gifts from grandparents since this is our second. DS is almost 6, and we didn't think we were having a second for a few years, so we have almost NO baby stuff, unfortunately.
The good thing about it is that having gone through this before, we know what we actually need. I still have my manual breast pump and some storage bags (I work from home, so I won't need anything more). We have a moses basket (which actually gets used for baby very little...more of a cute diaper storage basket lol), a convertible car seat (we will be car-free very shortly, so we'll probably just skip the baby bucket), a couple pairs of baby legs, a really worn ergo, an umbrella stroller (won't really work until the baby's older, but I will just wear her when she's tiny), and a friend gave us a few clothing items.
I registered for
-A boppy pillow (but now it's off because I found one in a free box last week...score!)
-A boppy pillow cover
a dozen infant prefolds, 4 assorted covers, cloth wipes, wet bags
sleep gowns, side-snap shirts/onesies, some long-sleeved shirts, footed pants
-hooded towels and baby washcloths
-a moby wrap
-breast pads and soothies
-a newborn toiletries kit
-some body care products: California Baby super sensitive body wash/shampoo, burts bees diaper balm, unscented baby massage oil, calendula cream
-a diaper bag (backpack)
I'm knitting lots of socks, hats, sweaters, and longies. We also plan to get a bouncy chair at the consignment store down the street. We will probably end using the consignment store to get most of the stuff on the registry, clothes especially.
Here's my registry for our second-
Mom to Vala 5/09, Anya 11/11, & one on the way 12/13
