Starting your baby registry can be extremely exciting but it can also be overwhelming. There are so many products out their on the market for babies and it is hard to know what to choose. Or even where to start your registry.
Step 1: Pick where you want to register. (I chose Babylist because you can choose to add products from anywhere and people can choose where to purchase them as well for the best price.)
I also added an Amazon Registry as well because they offer 15% off a month before your baby is born so you can purchase anything you did not receive.
Step 2: Start your Registry (I did a ton of research, and I knew that there were a few things I wanted that we were going to splurge on, like a nice crib from pottery barn. But I tried to stick to things that I had heard were must haves for other moms.)
I highly recommend categorizing your registry as well to help (bath, feeding, for mom, diapering, etc)
And don't forget to put a few things you will need on there too Mama!!
I separated my registry into the following categories:
Now onto the Good Stuff! Here is what is on my Registry!
The Registry explained
If you are a soon to be parent, a question you are going to ask yourself is what stroller do I buy?
It's a big question, because the right stroller can make all the difference with ease and accessibility in daily life with your baby.
You have to think of all the things to consider when buying a stroller like:
There are many different factors that play large rolls in what stroller you pick and the process is not easy.
These were all things I took into consideration while doing my research on the perfect stroller.
My biggest feature I knew I needed as a new mom and mom with one arm was the easy folding feature. Could my stroller fold with one arm? So let's get into what stroller I chose and why. Also sidenote: this is NOT sponsored. I bought this stroller because I believe in it and what the brand is doing. I am sharing it with you in hopes that it can ease some of your minds through the process of deciding which to get and maybe it will help out another one armed momma.
I choose the Mockingbird Stroller. It was an easy choice for me. I had seen an ad for this stroller a long time ago and wrote it down in my notes so that whenever I became a momma I could go back to it.
There are so many reasons I choose the stroller I did. Here they are:
So if you are stressing about strollers, I get it! There are so many! Also check out what car seat you want as a first step and go from there. (I will have another post soon on why I chose the car seat I did)
When choosing a stroller ask yourself what features do you want? How much do you want to spend? And go test a few out in a store like BuyBuyBaby. There are a lot on the market but for me it was a no brainer on which to choose with the features that Mockingbird offer and for the price. I also love that you can customize your Mockingbird stroller colors and details to make it unique to you.
