Here is the ULTIMATE registry list.
However, you don't NEED it all. So I am marking the MUST HAVES (or priority essentials, let's say, because you can live without many, they are just extra comfortable to have) in bolt.
If you are a second time mom, check this post instead!
I am also adding the brands that I loved most. But if an item was expensive, I also searched for a cheaper (yet similar) alternative.
PS: Everything is linked on Amazon so you can create your registry there, easily!
If you have any questions, comment on this IG post and I will get back to you there!
1. Laundry Detergent Fragance Free Nonallergenic Nontoxic shop
(Formulated without: parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, artificial fragrances or dyes. Formulated with: plant derived and certified organic)
2. Dryer Balls 100% natural softener, biodegradable, free of dyes and chemicals shop
3. Multi Surface Fragance Free Wipes shop
Formulated without: ammonia, bleach, phthalates, sulfates. Plant derived cleaning power
4. Non toxic hand soap for mom & family members shop
I am not marking the pump/bottles as necessity because you don't NEED to pump if you plan to be with baby at all times, and all that does become more expensive.
1. Bottles (my fav) shop
a) Regular double shop
b) Manual single shop
3. Nursing pillow
a) nursing shop
b) pumping shop
5. Drying rack
6. Organic nipple balm shop
7. Nursing bra pads shop
8. Burp cloths shop
9. Bottle warmer shop
Check which bottles fit
10. Formula mixer shop
If you do formula feed all the time, I have heard this is a life saver and good investment
11. Popsicle maker (also good for breast milk ones for teething) shop
FEEDING: PLAN FOR THE FUTURE (6m +)
Definitely not a necessity to get these items before the baby is born since you won't use them until they are 6 months and older. However, if you can add them now, you'll get some items out of the way so you can save some money, and six months will fly by!
1. High Chair
a) Magnet, easy to clean, modern shop
b) More traditional style shop
2. Dishes with dividers
a) Spoons shop
b) First Self feed utensils anti-choke shop
4. Feeding pacifier shop
5. Food maker Baby Cook shop
6. Sippy cups
a) 360 trainer cup with Handles shop
b) 360 trainer cup with No Handles shop
c) Latch transition cup shop
d) Straw shop
7. Re-usable pouches for homemade food shop
8. Puree storage shop
9. Bibs shop
10. Snack on-the-go shop
1. All purpose Organic balm shop
Plant-Based Hypoallergenic Skin Care Organic Sunflower, Olive, Coconut and Tamanu Oil Soothe
2. Ultra Calming Shampoo & Body Soap without harsh chemicals or synthetic fragrances shop
* I did NOT use shampoo / soap until she was a few months old, so I wouldn't call it urgent
3. Bath Tub:
a) Simple, for first few months shop
b) With a scale to track baby's growth, and grows to sitting baby size shop
c) The same style as B but without the scale and 1/3 of the price shop
5. Organic Baby Towels shop
You won't need bath toys just yet either. But here are some of my favorite early baby bath toys:
Little Squirts shop
Water Books shop
And this to keep all the toys tidy shop
1. Diapers: Eco-Friendly | Plant-Derived Materials | Hypoallergenic
Size 1 shop
Size 2 shop
Size 3 shop
Size 4 shop
If you have home storage space, I would recommend adding more diapers as a top priority in your registry list, 2 for each other stage, that will save you $400, it's an "easy" gift, and you'll def use them all eventually and will save you money down the line.
2. Baby wipes: Hypoallergenic & Plant Based shop
Again, I would add 2 to 5 of these wipe packages, if you have storage space. You'll definitely end up using them all too and are convenient to have during the first months, without reordering constantly!
3. Diaper Pail shop
4. Diaper Pail Bags shop
5. Fresheners for diaper pail shop
6. Changing pad
a) Peanut: Easy to Clean / non toxic / limits bacteria growth shop
b) Hatch: Same as above but also tracks weight gain with incorporated scale shop
I am not marking this essential because honestly, you can and prob will change your baby anywhere with a mobile pad or towel around the house.
7. On-The-Go Changing Station shop
This is so useful for the home, or when out.
NURSERY + SLEEP
a) This is OUR cosleeper, it levels to your bed and is simply a safe extension I love it shop
b) This is a much cheaper alternative of the same concept, over half the price shop
c) This is more of a regular bassinet, bed side, not extension of bed shop
d) This great/cheaper option, it has wheels to move around, we had it for downstairs shop
a) 3-in-1 convertible to toddler bed crib shop
b) A similar convertible crib version as above, slightly cheaper shop
b) And an even cheaper convertible crib shop
3. Non Toxic Crib Mattress shop
And organic natural mattress cover waterproof protector shop
4. 100% Organic Cotton Mattress Cover shop
5. Crib Mobile shop
6. Rocker or Glider shop
a) With changing table space) shop
b) A beautiful option, without the special space but that can be added on top shop
a) Organic Cable Knit Blanket shop
b) Organic Swaddle, receiving, stroller blanket shop
c) Organic Quilt blanket shop
9. Sound Machine / Night Light
a) Night Light + Sound Machine shop

d) A fun cheaper alternative, with wall mount + no monitor shop
a) Dockatot (this one was Sofia's fav) shop
b) Snuggle Me Organic (NOTE this one is not made to sleep unsupervised) shop
This isn't necessarily a necessity but if you can, prioritize it as it is very comfortable to have to bring the baby anywhere around the house with you

Don't be afraid (or ashamed) to add these on your registry, they are more helpful than some of the non-essential baby items :) Seriously.
1. Postpatum Snacks + Meals
a) Twenty Five Eight focuses on organic nourishment, free of gluten, soy, dairy and refined sugar, to nourish all stages of womanhood. Meaning they also offer snacks and meals catered to pregnancy, postpartum and breastfeeding specifically. GREAT to have healthy nourishing snacks around the house for this crazy busy time of your life.
b) Cateredfit delivers to a ton of US states, fresh meas (not frozen) straight to your doorstep. With locally sourced ingredients, no high fructose corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils, no modified starches, no man-added dies, no white flour or sugars... And I love that you can choose the EXACT meals that you want from vegan, pescatarian, macro meals. Use code PRBOSSBABE for a discount.
c) KleanLA delivers to SoCal only, all organic, fresh, with no GMOs/gluten/soy, they have vegan, low carb, regular and pescatarian plans. They offer meal plan packages as well as individual a-la-carte meals! Make sure to add some of their cold pressed juices, to get those extra nutrients, easily!
2. At home massages or SPA treatments
There are ton of companies that offer at-home services. During the first month, I did not want to leave the house while recovering. And having an in-home mani pedi treatment, a couple of massages, and a facial, was life-changing! Happy mom, happy baby. And you don't waste time commuting so you can get it done in under an hour while daddy watches baby. Try an app called PRIV, it's my fav.
3. Cleaning crew sessions
Through postpartum all you want is to rest your body and recover, and give your baby all the snuggles. Having a cleaning crew once a week or every two weeks, to come in and deep clean the house for you, is everything.
