2021 baby registry checklist + printable guide to making a baby registry

Updated: February 2021

Hey Mama, are you starting to stress about building your baby registry? Do you feel like you have so many options and no idea where to even begin? You may even have multiple registry checklists from well-meaning friends and family, but still feel like you need to do hours and hours of research. Well – you’re in the right spot. Here you’ll find an updated baby registry checklist for 2021 and all the help you’ll need to set up the baby registry of your dreams.

If you’ve been googling “best baby registry items for 2021” non-stop, you can stop the scroll. Let me ask you something — would a baby registry guide or magic registry sherpa make life so much easier for you? Do you just want someone to tell you exactly WHY you need each item on your baby registry?

I know exactly how you feel. When I was building my baby registry I was totally overwhelmed with all the choices out there. I just wanted someone to tell me what to buy. It was nice to have the checklists of baby registry must-haves, but I still felt like I didn’t know what I was doing.

I would have killed for a baby registry guide I knew I could trust. It seemed impossible to find the safest choices for my baby without spending an arm and a leg on every item. Even with all the information I had, I was definitely worried I’d get the wrong things, or get a lot of stuff we wouldn’t use.

When I built my baby registry I started with a few lists from friends who already built their registries. I also did a ton of research on my own. I wanted to make sure all of our products were non-toxic and would be useful for our new baby. The good news is I did all this research, and then put it in a useful toolkit so you don’t have to.

The easiest way to begin your baby registry

If you are looking for a comprehensive resource on how to get started building your baby registry, and what you should be thinking about when registering for your new little one, you’ve come to the right place.

I’m going to tell you about two great options to help you build your baby registry. The first one is totally free, but I will give you a heads up, the second one with more in-depth help comes at a very reasonable cost.

Set up your baby registries online

After you’ve downloaded your guide, you’re ready to start setting up your baby registries. The fastest and easiest way to do this is to set them up online. There are a ton of different choices, so think about where you like to shop, and if having an in-person option is important to your friends and family.

Register in multiple places

Registering in multiple places is really important as it gives gift-givers options. You’ll want to include at least one physical store (preferably a national chain) so that everyone who wants to buy you a gift is able.

Many grandparents to be and great grandparents prefer to shop in person, so you want to make sure you give everyone an easy way to get your gift, and to find your baby registry. Hopefully, by now people are comfortable shopping and sending gifts online, but I’d still make sure you give a physical option.

I love Amazon and Babylist for online registries. Almost anything you want can be found on those two sites, and you get a “completion discount” for anything you don’t get as a gift. Then try a chain like Target or a specialty store in your area for variety, and items you think people may want to browse for in person.
