Baby is on the way and that means it is time to register! You may have been debating whether or not you really need to do so, but there are a number of reasons why you should. Your registry simplifies things in several ways by letting you choose up front all of the items that you need and want for your little one.
Creating a registry helps you stay organized and gives you something to focus on. Lots of moms-to-be spend too much time fussing and worrying, so having an activity like maintaining a registry provides a good distraction.
When should you start a registry? That’s up to you. You can technically start one any time, but on average, moms-to-be will start them somewhere around the 12th week. If that seems a bit on the early side, it’s because building a registry can be more time than you realize. There are many choices to make, with enough brands and models that you might even find yourself feeling a bit overwhelmed. This will give you the time you need to become informed by checking out reviews or talking to other parents to get their feedback.
Preparing a registry also means that you can avoid getting things that you already have or simply don’t need, and if you have one brand that you love and others that you don’t like, this is how to ensure that you aren’t disappointed. It also makes it so much easier for those who want to provide something for you, as deciding on the right gift can be difficult. Your registry saves them time and effort.
You might have an extremely specific style in mind for your child and having a registry lets you pick items that match that style. While you will certainly appreciate the effort others make in choosing items for your little one, you could easily end up with things that will either sit at the back of the closet or end up being returned. If you are going for a theme with your little one, your registry lets you keep everything in line with your vision.
If you are waiting for confirmation of the baby’s gender, you may want to wait a little longer to start your registry. Some parents will wait until around week 20 when a mid-pregnancy ultrasound can give a view of baby’s anatomy. This might prove to be a good idea if your registry is going to include gender-specific items, but don’t put it off too much longer. Your list should be put together before you send out your baby shower invitations, which is usually done about 4 weeks ahead of the event.
