With a world of hand-me-downs from my sister-in-laws, putting together the registry took some major consideration. We don’t need a lot of stuff and I personally don’t want a lot of stuff. Now I’m sure this may all change at some point. But for the time being I’m going into parenthood with a goal of keeping it minimal. What does a baby really need? I love Elizabeth’s list. Here’s some things we registered for, have, or want:
Smell: Weleda is one of my favorite brands of skin care, we’ll use the Calendula Oil for some real good baby massages. And if his nose is too blocked to smell the soothing oil, we’ll suck the snot out. I know, that thing looks so gross, but look at those reviews!
Sound: We would love to bring the babe to some shows at a young age but we don’t want his little ears to get damaged. These will do the trick.
Taste: Little bub’s main food source will be the boob, but we’ll have some bottles around for bonding with Dad. These are supposed to be great for breastfed babes.
