Ready, Set, Register!

That first visit to register at the baby superstore can be overwhelming. With all those aisles full of strollers, blankets, toys, bathtubs, clothing, bibs, highchairs etc. etc. (etc.!), that dazed and confused feeling is perfectly understandable. Not to worry: We've whittled down the possibilities into a list of the most important baby basics. Remember, you can always add or delete items later, so don't feel pressured to build the perfect baby registry all at once.

Play time

Play mats: Even infants need to play. One of the first toys your baby can use is a play mat or play gym. Look for bright colors, bold patterns and tons of contrast to capture their tiny eyes.

One to try: The Boppy EntertainMe Play Gym is an oversized, soft fabric mat with appliquéd fabrics, a mini Boppy pillow and a plush butterfly with lights and music. You can attach other toys to the included links.

Swing: A swing is one versatile baby toy. It can soothe cranky tots, serve as a great afternoon nap spot and entertain Baby while she's awake.

One to try: The full-size Soothe in Comfort swing automatically recognizes baby's weight and adjusts swing speed accordingly. It features music, nature sounds, soothing vibration and auto shutoff after 30 minutes.

Thanks for the tips on the nursing covers. I have a friend that is having a baby soon and I am definitely going to forward this on to her. I think she could really use the advice, considering that this is her first. Thanks for the help!
