Who needs registry consultants when you have two sisters-in-law who, combined, have 7 kids??? I had my own, personal consultants this past weekend when we ventured out to the overwhelmingly large baby stores to pick out all the great items our Baby Girl needs and must have.
I really, really tried hard to get just the basics and what Baby needs for the first 6 months. We have absolutely no storage in our house and, therefore, have no room for clutter that may or may not be needed 6 months from the time the baby is born.
We did the requisite registry at Babies R Us. But also there is a great baby store called Buy Buy Baby. There are only a few in the country and one happens to be by our house. It is owned by Bed, Bath and Beyond and it feels exactly like that store except everything is baby, baby, baby. And one of the bonuses is that they take Bed, Bath and Beyond's 20% off coupons.
It was just terrific having my sisters-in-law there to tell me what I really needed and what is the best of the best and what is a waste of money. I couldn't have done it without them.
We've also picked out our bedding...
And our crib...
Boy, it almost feels real...the baby gymnastics in my stomach is helping with that, too!
