Top Baby Registry Items You Actually Need

Yes, stuffed animals and onesies are adorable, but if we’re being honest, most of these things will still have tags on them on your baby’s first birthday. If you want to fill your registry with things you’ll actually use every day, here are our top baby registry recommendations.

360 Cloud High Chair

Your baby can eat and play facing any direction in this 360- degree swivel high chair. This easy-to-clean seat is free of nooks and crannies (so no Cheerios in impossible to clean places), plus the tray is dishwasher safe—a bonus for busy parents.

Brica XtraGuard Antimicrobial 5-in-1 Cover 

Protect your baby from germs when out and about with this versatile, antimicrobial cover-up. Featuring silver-ion technology that prevents bacteria growth on fabric surfaces, this five-in-one accessory can be used as a car seat cover, nursing cover-up, shopping cart cover and more.

Nursery Projector and Sound Machine

Help your baby sleep, well, like a baby with this sound machine that features both soothing, ambient sounds and lullabies. It also features a projector with three image cartridges, which provides just enough light for changing baby in the middle of the night.

Clearnose Aspirator

Bet you never thought you’d be sucking snot from your baby’s nose, but trust us, a nasal aspirator will be one of your medicine cabinet’s most used items during your baby’s first year. The Clearnose Aspirator is easy to use and includes three different nose tips with no filters required.

Munchkin Swing

Babies love to be in motion (well, most babies…it takes a little trial and error to figure out what they like). This swing rocks side-to-side, emulating a caregiver’s natural swaying motion. Plus, it plays soft sounds in the background to soothe your little one.

Munchkin Sponge Bottle Brushes

These may not seem like the most exciting items on the list, but washing and sanitizing your baby’s bottles will soon feel like it’s taking over your life. This brush will be a game changer. It’s a bottle brush and nipple brush in one, allowing you to clean every inch of your baby’s bottle with one simple tool.

Munchkin CleanSqueeze Mold-Free Bath Squirts

Fun in the tub is one of the best ways for your baby to engage in sensory play. A bath can help your baby get a better sleep and can help them reset if they’re feeling a little cranky. Just be sure to fill your tub with fun and safe bath toys that won’t harbour mold inside. That’s why we love these ones! Easily squeezed by little hands, they twist apart for thorough cleaning. Grab the Munchkin Quack Bath Caddy to hold all of your bath toys while allowing water to drain out when bath time is over, too.

What you DON’T need
Learn from veteran parents what you really don’t need for your new arrival. Here are a few of the things you can leave off the baby registry.

✘ Dozens of receiving blankets: You really only need four or five.
✘ Crib bumpers: These are considered a safety hazard.
✘ An excess of diapers: Don’t stock up, unless you’re buying a range of sizes. Your baby will outgrow them before you can use them.
