Pregnancy and postpartum are super intense times for you and we want to be sure we’re nurturing ourselves as much as we can between diaper changes and breastfeeding. Here are some lovely products to help you do just that…

And now, we find ourselves at the end of the Mama Natural Baby Registry Checklist. I hope you uncovered some great ideas here, and that you feel a little more confident about what you’re going to need. The important thing is to make this your own. Put on your registry the items that resonate with you and leave the rest 🙂

Happy registering, and best of luck with the new baby!

P.S. You can also view the complete baby registry checklist all on one page.

P.S. Wondering where to register for your baby shower?

This is the big question. Do you register for your baby at Target? Walmart? Local boutiques?

I'm kind of an Amazon junkie. (Once you experience traditional store visits with a toddler, you'll see why :) ) And Amazon has a great baby registry service. They even let you add products from other websites. You can check out Amazon's baby registry right here.

The best reason to register with Amazon is that most people already have an account, which makes it easy on your friends and family.

And no matter where you register, I wish you a fantastic pregnancy, a really fun baby shower, and a smooth, natural, healthy delivery!
