Planning for a baby means baby registry essentials! It’s our pregnancy update week 32. This baby is coming and if you’re like me then you want to be as prepared as possible!
There are a lot of random baby items that you need, but there are also so many baby items that are hit or miss. That’s why I’m sharing my baby registry essentials. These are all the items that worked for me and my first baby. Make sure you you watch our full video on the Mommy and Me YouTube channel!
A big thing when it comes to baby products is that you don’t need everything! Honestly remember that something that works for someone else doesn’t always work for you. My baby hated to be swaddled and while other parents raved about swaddles for their children mine I ended up using as blankets.

The above being said if you’re breastfeeding or formula feeding you need bottles and nipples for your baby. I breastfed my first and I’m so glad I introduced the bottle to her early on. One thing I didn’t know is that you need to upgrade your bottle nipples. Make sure you have some larger sizes for when your baby grows!
The best advice I got before my first baby was to have somewhere for the babe to sit. Sure, I planned on getting a rock n play which I did and my baby loved! As your babe gets older though you need somewhere to put him or her when say you shower or go to the bathroom and even just to chill out. I got one of these and my babe sat in it for a long time! It is a life saver!
There are obviously the registry must haves like car seats and strollers, but those are the obvious ones. I highly recommend getting a pack n play. It’s awesome for letting your baby sleep it in while they sleep in your room. I found it perfect as they get older to play and nap in. It’s also great if you have visitors come and ever need your babe to sleep in your room.
Planning for a baby can daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! Our pregnancy update week 32 is all about baby registry essentials! Check out our full video for all of our recommendations.
