I will end up having 3 small baby showers thrown for me in 3 different states. I am having to come to grips with registering, which I hated dealing with for my wedding, too... in the end very few people used it (which was nice) but I suspect people will stick to it more this time. So... I was thinking about doing Amazon, b/c I can register for pretty much anything from anywhere (like, one thing I think I want to get is a Thule car rack storage thing, which is totally needed for extra baby gear, but I bet Babies R Us etc wouldn't carry anything like that). But it also means everyone would have to order online, and there's no option to go to a store and buy something from the registry (granted, I live >1 hour from a Babies R Us type place). I have a small number of 'big' items (jog stroller, the Thule) and lots of little items (glass bottles, burp cloths) on my wish list, and not really any mid size (already have car seat, furniture, etc). Anyone register with Amazon? Any other ideas? Of course I always prefer something from a local store but everyone is already asking and they want an official registry!
