Setting up our registry with buybuy BABY!

Carl and I have been waiting for this moment for what seems to be forever. We have always looked around at baby items and hoped and prayed for our day to come soon. Being able to finally set up our registry was a dream come true and honestly, we truly enjoyed it, then we realized how much stuff we had to decide on, haha!

This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, a brand I love. All opinions here are my own.

We decided to go with buybuy BABY for our registry needs because you can easily make an appointment and meet with one of their registry experts who takes you around the store and gives you detailed information on products you may need and why. Creating a registry can be daunting, and with our first, we didn’t know where to begin. Luckily, buybuy BABY offers many different services and ways to help you get started! Carl and I went into buybuy BABY the first time and utilized their “quick picks” where lists are expertly curated to help you begin building your registry!

The second time we went to buybuy BABY, we met with one of their registry consultants, Jessica, and without her, I think we would have been a little lost on which product to choose over another! Her knowledge and experience truly helped us understand one product over another.

Let’s be honest, It can be overwhelming if it’s your first time and Jessica made us feel at ease and comfortable during the process!

We conquered buybuy BABY in a little over an hour. Everything from pacifiers, teethers, diaper bag (I still need to pick mine out, Carl is already got his, haha) highchairs, strollers (we are going with the Bugaboo Donkey 2), car seats, books and MORE.

It’s easy to follow along with the registry guide, I still have mine to check off items we get and what we will still need in the future!

It also really helps to know a friend or two who have made a registry before. Not only can you “copy” items from their registry that they loved, but they can provide you with a referral credit of $25 off an in-store purchase of $100 or more!

buybuy BABY makes creating a registry not only easy but fun too! Carl and I had a great time picking out items we need for our first baby and love how user-friendly the app is to use. We can easily add or remove items to the registry right from our phones! It also tracks who has bought what with the Thank You list tool so you don’t have to try and remember which gifts came from whom!

  1. I love that they had someone there to help you through the process!! I’m not a mom, but I can only imagine how overwhelming it must be to try and figure out which products are the best for your baby. It sounds like you had an amazing experience!

  2. Good to know about this option for my friends! I don’t plan to expand my family (unless they have fur and tails haha) but I know so many of my friends having kids right now so I’ll mention this to them!

  3. I remember the first time we went to do a baby registry it was so overwhelming with the options! We ended up putting multiple of each item on for the big-ticket items, then going home to do more research and decide which to keep. And even though it wasn’t on the list, we were overwhelmed with bath items. There’s just something about babies and their bathtime that people seem to love!

  4. As someone who has attended baby showers before I cannot thank you enough for doing a registry. Otherwise so many moms end up with tons of the same thing only to have to exchange something, which nobody has time for. A baby registry makes things so much easier!

  5. This is such a great idea! I can’t believe it’s not a thing here in Australia! The amount of double up items we got with my first one was insane! I wish I could have this!

  6. It looks like you’ve already selected some really great items for your baby registry! I wish there was a BuyBuyBaby closer to our home so I could have gone in to register instead of doing it all online, The one on on help I bet was really nice! We personally swear by the Comotomo bottles!

  9. Congratulations and how fun to be able to get the registry going…I think one of mine was through buy buy baby as well and I remember loving how smooth the process was

  10. Oh my gosh you are GLOWING!!!!! I’m so excited for you guys. Can’t wait to snuggle baby Morris!!!!!

  11. I shopped there when my kids were younger and they always had an impressive selection of items. Wishing you a wonderful selection of great items for your bundle of joy!
