Lets start a new tradition. I think that 6 months after your baby is born you should get to have another baby shower. Who is with me? By the time your child is 6 months old there are all kinds of things you need that you didn’t receive at the first shower. You can read my first post about creating a baby registry here. That is back when I thought I knew what I was doing. If I had to do it again I would do a few things differently.
1. I would register for clothing—-in sizes 12-24 months. Babies grow really fast! And more than that, baby clothes are only meant to fit for a short amount of time. Think about it, 3-6 month clothing is only supposed to fit for 3 months–which is the blink of an eye, really– Maybe some of your shower guests would help you out by purchasing clothes you will need a bit further down the road.
2. I would keep in mind that in less than 6 months my child could be doing the following things: eating, rolling over, teething, reaching for and playing with toys. I would register for everything needed to take care of those needs.
3. I now know that babies get dirty, A LOT. They spit up, drool, and poo All-Day-Long! If you want to be able to make it through an entire day without doing a load of laundry, make sure you register for the 3 B’s- Burp Rags, Blankets, and Bibs!
What would you do differently if you could register for you baby shower today?by
