Baby Registry Essentials – Mommy Must Haves

Becoming a mommy is the most exciting transformation I have ever experienced! But it can be overwhelming also, trying to figure out what you really need to be prepared for the arrival of a new little bundle. Like with all things I tend to be a little obsessive in researching what's best, so when I found out I was pregnant I started scouring online for advice and reviews on what new mommies really loved and found useful. After reading tons and tons of reviews, blog entries and most pinned pieces I thought it would be great to share my list of most popular mommy must haves. We decided to use amazon.com for most of our registry. It's great because you can pull things from any website and create a universal registry. So adding the adorable monogrammed blanket from Pottery Barn and some Land of Nod little things I fell in love with were no problem. Plus Amazon allows you to add little notes, rank items in terms of most needed, and even keeps at thank you lost of names and addresses. Very helpful!

Here's the link to all the items on amazon.com http://frostedevents.com/?p=163

Hope you find the list useful also and feel free to share!
