This weekend needed a little more oomph, so Don and I decided to get our baby registry on. We know we are MONTHS away from baby, but let’s be realistic… we’re new at this. And it’s not like a wedding registry where a pan is a pan. So in doing this early, we’ve put a bunch of items on our list, have done some research, and now leave it to experienced moms and dads (like you?) to give us advice in what we’re missing. We’re more concerned about what we will need, rather than what have on the list that we don’t need. So advise away…
We have decided to register at Pottery Barn Kids & Buy Buy Baby. We might add amazon.com for those online shoppers and for items that aren’t available on either site (like our crib), but that’ll be later. We really like the one of a kind Pottery Barn Kids offers and then how Buy Buy Baby accepts their own 20% off coupons, as well as Bed Bath and Beyond coupons (their mother ship) and competing coupons from Babies R Us.

You will notice some odd duplications from both. We have not edited either, nor have we limited the registries for only a boy or girl. We should find out this month which it’ll be (yay!), but this way we kinda keep tabs of what we want once we know what we’re having.
What I did buy while we were out scanning away today was a body pillow for sleeping. I’m having trouble following the rules of only sleeping on my left side (apparently it’s safest for baby as baby gets most oxygen this way), so we bought a boppy body pillow that slips under one leg and under my head and arm. I attempted to give it a try with a nap today, but, well, this is as far as I’ve gotten:
Yeah, he’s only been sleeping on it for three hours now. At least we know we’ll get use out of it after baby comes!
