Arm’s Reach Mini Co-Sleeper Bassinet - Natural
Mini co-sleeper, bassinet, or pack n play

My vote is the mini co-sleeper as it lasts longer than a bassinet but isn’t too big. My son used his up to 5 months. Pack n play makes a good travel crib.

Babies often wake up with a poppy diaper. Fun times! They say everyone poops, but when baby poops it’s your job to take care of it 🙂 Let’s move on and take a look at some diapering options for your baby registry checklist.

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!
