What to Put on Your Baby Registry

photo 2 (3) My (pregnant) friend Erin asked me for tips on what to put on her baby registry, and I thought it might be nice to share it here as well. I have to say the funny thing about the baby registry - some people will say they absolutely love a product and the next person may say it's not needed. So, keep in mind that this is just one opinion.

We registered at Target, so that is where many of these links go. If I were to do it again, I might also register at BuyBuyBaby since one of those opened here last summer.
