What are your favorite sites that have some, if not all baby needs?
There is so much out there that I find it daunting. However, people are starting to ask me. Yikes!
whatever you do, i would NOT register at target. we registered there for our wedding, and they deleted our registry after 90 days without telling us. as well, there are still (a year later) unresolved issues with us not receiving gifts. their customer service was below par and nearly non-existent. :
For DD's pregnancy I did register at BabiesRus but for a few things but for the most part I requested gift cards. I had my baby shower out in Boston and we live in N. CA so it made more sense for people to give us gift cards that we could just go and buy what we needed rather than ship it all back.
I don't know that I plan to register anywhere this time around. Can't really think of much we need unless it's a girl, and then people will buy clothes whether I register for them or not.
I registered for my first at Target, BRU, lots of mainstream places bc I have lots of mainstream friends...
Not one person bought off my registry...they bought what they thought I forgot...blankets, clothes etc...even though I specifically asked that those items not be bought....bottles and such too....
My aunt did buy the hamper I wanted...
My friends experiences are similar....
If I had to do it all over, I would just ask for giftcards...but my friends would still buy blankets and sleepers..
I had great experiences with all of them.
I have had friends register through www.thethingsiwant.com Pretty cool because you can pick to get items from nearly any store you want (even the little guys ).
As a mom & pop business owner, I just cannot bring myself to register at BRUs or the like.
I have done registries for my boys at Oompa Toys - what a great idea! I think I'll look there for good baby toy ideas, too. Ooh, and to find somewhere with lovely organic clothes!!

I lived across country from many friends/relatives and had showers ALL over the place. After my shower on the east coast, I returned EVERYTHING to BRU and then repurchased it all when I got home to the west coast. Saved on shipping costs.

But it is nice that they are more available. I live in Mesa, AZ, and even though we live in a HUGE valley (I think it's like 60 miles accross or something) which is the Phoenix area, there are only 2 Babies R Us. One is fairly close to us, but it's a bit obnoxious. I am going to start a list at thethingsiwant.com. That looks great, since many friends and family of mine are out of state.
