babies "r" us | baby registry made easy


attention all mamas and future mamas and people thinking about being mamas or friends of people who have had a thought about becoming a mom. did you follow?

to get to the bare bones of this post - i'm here to tell you about Babies "R" Us and getting yourself registered for all your baby needs.

when i was prepping to have my first best gal, kaye, i was - oh, what's the word - lost. and with all the online forums, opinions, top 10 lists, pinterest...it can feel like a nightmare trying to find the best of this, the most natural of that, organic, breastfeeding, poo bags, nursing pillows, 47 strollers, softest, non-toxic...i could go on and on.

it is so overwhelming. almost more overwhelming than having a newborn. almost.

so instead of reading anymore so-called advice online i went to our local Babies "R" Us store so i could get my hands on some products. i knew that was going to be key in selecting the majority of the products i wanted to swaddle, cuddle, nurse, gawk, etc.

it was 100% the right move and i was no longer lost in the black hole that is baby registry hell.

but here's some even better news. now Babies "R" Us has made it even easier.

how many times have you thought to yourself - i could really use a personal assistant.

(says me every day.)

Babies "R" Us will now provide you with a Personal Registry Partner at their registry desk AND Category Experts for all of your baby needs - Gear, Nursery, Wardrobe, and Baby Care.

what i'm saying is - you get to drag a helper around the store, ask all the questions you could ever have, and probably learn things you never would have thought to ask...without stumbling upon someone's blog telling you you're going to be a bad mom if you register for the wrong things.

if this sounds like it could be up your ally, you can reserve your Personal Registry Partner by visiting the Babies "R" Us events page. that way you're not stuck waiting in line when you get to the store.

sheesh...this mom thing is tough. but registering for all of your baby's gifts doesn't have to be...in fact, it can be EASY!

speaking of easy...after you pop around the store with your personal assistant (Personal Registry Partner), maybe you later realize you forgot to register for baby shampoo and lotion? or you realized you would actually like a different set of swaddles. well all you have to do is pop onto your Babies "R" Us registry app (for iOS) and add, delete, switch...whatever edits you need to make. you can also share your registry via the app with friends and family so they can love on your expected bundle of sweetness too. love that! (especially since we live so far from a Babies "R" Us at 1.5 hours away.)

what i'm saying is this - registering with Babies "R" Us can be a ridiculously easy solution to the stress that comes with prepping for a baby. and as a mom of two, here is what i know about being pregnant and stress - it's not pretty and it's not fun. so stay happy and glowing...and eat ice cream every night. that's what i did!

beyond eating ice cream every night - i have some more good news. no, i'm not pregnant. that would be bad news.

the good news is this - Babies "R" Us is having a free Registry Party on January 16th from 11 am to 12 pm at all their standalone locations! you can register at the event with all their experts on hand and also participate in games, baby trivia, giveaways, and raffles! hope you're feeling lucky!

there's more! Babies "R" Us also offers up pre and postnatal classes. you can reserve your spot by visiting their site! i love that. so so very helpful.

and the last helpful bit i'm going to discuss today - Babies "R" Us is gifting a $100 gift card to one lucky September Farm reader!

  27. My favorites are all the little small things you can register for that you really need--like diaper munchkin things, burp cloths, pacis, baby hangers...they're great because it reminds me if I still need them, and my family and friends can put together a great baby gift by just putting together a basket of little things!
