Baby Registry Tips from a Second Time Mom

This post is sponsored by buybuy BABY, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Creating a baby registry can be a bit overwhelming but using these tips from me, a second time Mom will help!

See our gender reveal announcement here!

Being a second time Mom now, I have learned a few tips for creating a baby registry filled with items that you will actually use and need!

Baby Registry Decisions

When I registered with Dominic, I remember feeling so overwhelmed with so many products to choose from and trying to decide what was the best for our family and lifestyle. It’s a lot of pressure! There are so many amazing baby products out there that it can be hard to narrow down exactly what will work for you and baby!

For this baby, I put together a baby registry to help you make some easier decisions. I had such an incredible experience registering at buybuy BABY with Dominic that I decided to register there again for baby girl!

Baby Registry Consultant


I wish I had done this when registering with Dominic. The buybuy BABY registry consultants are there to help you with all your needs. I sat with Maddie for about 30 minutes to determine what I wanted to register for this time around.

The consultants are super knowledgeable about a wide range of products. Maddie was able to explain all about the different bottle options and the pros and cons of each. She explained all the benefits of the Doc a Tot too! She was there to walk around the store with me, if I wanted.

I also chatted with a stroller consultant who was extremely well versed in all the different strollers. He explained all the pros and cons to a bunch of different double strollers depending on the price we wanted, the lifestyle that we live, the ease of use, etc!

For all of the major baby item purchases, I would definitely recommend talking to someone at buybuy BABY because they know so much! They can help determine which item will work best for you and your family!

Deciding on Double Strollers for the Baby Registry


After registering, you will receive a free goody bag filled with samples and coupons! Such a fun little gift to receive after registering! This is only available in stores, FYI!

There is a 15% completion discount. This means, you will receive 15% off of any item left on your registry that hasn’t been purchased!

Refer your friends and if they register at buybuy BABY, you will receive $25 off a $100 in store purchase! Send your all our Mamas to be to register at buybuy BABY!

Baby Registry Gift Bag


This is kind of a mock registry as I am not planning to have a shower this time around. I wanted to create this registry to share the products we used and loved with Dominic in order to help you make some easier decisions on baby items!

I also added some items to the registry that I did not receive with Dominic because they were either not around when I was pregnant with him, I just did not see a need for them at the time, or products that just need to be updated.

I didn’t add anything to the bedding section as that is so subjective to your taste and style. These are items you would register for that would fit with your nursery theme.

New Clothes for the Baby Registry

I hope this mock registry helps to determine which products to add to your registry! I would definitely check out buybuy BABY and set up an appointment to sit with a consultant to go over your registry. It will be so beneficial for you!
