Is a loved one of yours expecting? Have they thought about setting up a registry yet? Maybe you could recommend that they set one up through Babylist!
Babylist allows parents to register for items – without having to worry about registering at an exact location. They can choose a swing, for example. Rather than you having to worry about going to a certain store, you can find it at ANY store near you. I know that this is exceptionally helpful for people who do not live near a Baby’s R Us (the most common place new parents register.) Now, you can purchase that swing at a Baby’s R Us, Target, Walmart, or even a local independent vendor.
Babylist will list the items with their prices, and examples of locations where you can get the item. Expecting parents can even write notes like “color doesn’t matter, any style will do” which can also be exceptionally helpful to gift givers.
If you know of someone who is registered on Babylist, you’ll be able to select their gift with ease. Just watch this video below to see how!
As a Grandma and with lots of new Grandma friends (and none of us know all the super awesome modern tech and otherwise stuff out there now!), this is PERFECT! We LOVE getting exactly what our daughters, daughters-in-law, nieces, friends' kids, etc. WANT and NEED. Honestly, perfect!
Great info! just tweeted this!
Great information!!! You're making me want to have another one and start a new registry!! So many cool things out there now!
I wish this site existed when I was pregnant!
That is a genius idea.
What a fab tool!!!!
that is absolutely wonderful!! it was such a struggle to decide where to register so that it didn't create more work for people. Finally!
I'm always amazed, and a little bummed, by how cool pregnancy stuff is nowadays. It's only been 7 years since I last did it and the gear, the clothes, the support is all so cool. ALMOST makes me want to do it again. 😉
It's pretty cool, but I have to admit several people in my family who are not tech savvy at all would have head explosions over something like this! ha! They like the old fashioned, go to the store and print out the registry and go insane matching up UPC codes to get the right thing. 😉
Haha – I found that to happen with a few of our friends and relatives as well. They are just so used to going to BRU 🙂
I keep wondering how it will change even more in the next seven years 🙂
Thanks for this info. So useful for me and my family. Please keep blogging 🙂
