I’m so excited to share my Walmart Baby Registry Checklist with you! Whether you’re expecting your first baby or simply looking for what to give at a baby shower, I hope this registry checklist helps make things easier. Creating a baby registry felt like learning a new language. Walmart Baby Registry recently launched this past April, and I wish it was around when I was expecting the twins (you can read about my registry regrets here). Luckily, you can avoid all of these by registering with Walmart. You’ll find all your favorite brands with free 2-day shipping, and if you end up getting 4 of the same item you can easily return it at your nearest Walmart! What are some of your favorite baby items?
- Bottles– We initially used Dr. Brown, but I could not handle the 87 parts to clean every day. I wish we had bought these sooner, they are a breeze to clean and held up the longest.
- Bibs– I do not miss the constant drooling from two babies, but this help prevent rashed on their neck and chest. Once they start eating solids, these baby food bibs are super easy to clean.
- Burp Cloth– Sip up times two made me so thankful to have just plain white ones that I could bleach.
- Baby Brezza– Honestly, we only really used this for a month, but it was worth it. A warm mixed bottle in seconds? Yes, please! If you have sticker shock, a lot of my friends loved this pitcher too. These travel formula cases are great for the diaper bag.
- High Chair– Definitely recommend something that’s super easy to clean with no frills. It’s going to get covered in avocado anyway.
- Travel High Chair– All my friends rave about this one.
- Drying Rack and Stands– We actually had two of these to hold all my pump parts and bottles.
- Dapple– Over time our bottles would get this film on them, this soap helped get them clear again.
- Pacifier– My boys loved these, they smell like vanilla and at first I could only find them at the Cooks ER, luckily now they are at Walmart. The Wubbanub helped them keep the paci in their mouths.
- Crib– Ours looks very similar to this one, I love that it’s classic and timeless. If we had another baby, I would ask everyone to pitch in for a Snoo. Sleep deprivation is so real, looking back I really don’t know how we did it lol. It’s expensive but FAR less than a night nanny or sleep coach.
- Mattress– Just make sure you get a firm one to avoid SIDS.
- Mattress Pad– These are the best, especially when you have to change the sheets at 2 am.
- Crib Sheets– I love how classic these are.
- Bassinet– We used our pack n play with built-in bassinets, but if we had a singleton this would have been perfect. Great for taking over to family and friends as well.
- Pack n Play– I love this one for twins, we still use it when we go out of town. This portable one is perfect for traveling those first few months.
- Swaddle– JHC was a pro at swaddling, I on the other hand sucked. These velcro ones made it so much easier.
- Sleep Sack– My twins hated being swaddled, we moved to these pretty quickly.
- Sound Machine– We have tried SO many different sound machines, from the Dohm to our Alexa…This is by far the best.
- Blackout Curtains– My boys nap so much better when their room is completely black.
- Swing– We had two fancy swings and both my boys preferred a simple one.
- Bouncer– Pretty much the only way I could shower those first few months.
- Activity Gym– Our boys loved playing with the keys.
- Jumper/ Exersaucer– We had this one and a fancier one, but they both preferred this one.
- Sit Me Up Chair– GAME CHANGER. I love this chair. It helped my boys SO much. They hated being on their bellies, but I was concerned with their heads being flat. This chair made my life so much easier.
- Teething Toys– Sophie is our BFF. Seriously though, we couldn’t live without her
- Stroller Toys– Getting toys that clip onto the stroller straps will save you so much time.
- Stacking Cups– H & B still play with these, they are the best.
- Music Table– We used the top while they were learning how to sit, and then added the legs when they started pulling up.
- Walker– You can detach the front and use it as a toy before they start walking.
- Books– Tear-proof, bite-proof, and drool-proof, I love these indestructible books.
- Music Toys– This little toy calmed the boys down so many times. They still carry it around.
- Baby Bath– We had the flower bath, but it was a serious pain. The simple route is usually the best.
- Hooded Towel– These are so cute!
- Shampoo Rinser– My boys seriously love this thing!
- Bath Mat– Your knees will thank you!
- Faucet Cover– I can’t even begin to tell you how scary the faucet is when they are still learning how to sit up in the bathtub.
- Washcloths– We would get these wet with hot water, and put them on their stomach to keep them warm during their baths.
- Nail Clippers– Honestly, clipping their fingernails is my least favorite thing to do. I love that these make it hard to clip their skin.
- Car Seat– When deciding on an infant carrier definitely think about how little they will be in it. Most of my friends switched before age 1. Make sure to register for an extra-base so you aren’t having to reinstall the car seat base when you switch cars.
- Convertible Car Seat– We love this one, it can technically grow with them birth to 10 years old. My friends switched from expensive ones to this. It’s super easy to clean and comfortable for your little one.
- Stroller– I’m a little embarrassed to admit that we own 3 strollers and 3 wagons, but I also feel like it makes me a bit of an expert. If I had to choose one I would go with this. I personally love having the side by side for Zoo trips, walks, and any outdoor activity or event. Most of my friends got the Double Bob when they had their second child.
- Diaper Bag– Being hands-free is a must. I love this backpack diaper bag.
- Car Mirrors– JHC laughed at this purchase, but we seriously love having them.
- Carseat Covers– The ones that completely cover the seat are great for those winter months, but trap heat during the Summer. Having one like this that let new air in is important. People throw personal space out the window when they see babies, these helped keep them away.
- Susher- LIFESAVER. I cannot tell you how many times this has come in handy while in public.
- Monitor – We needed two cameras, so decided to go with this one.
- Baby Gate– I love how this one opens like a door, makes carrying things through so much easier.
- Outlet Covers– It’s scary how quickly you will need these. My advice is to just put them on now and you won’t have to think about it again.
- Breathing Monitor– We used these instead of the owlet, mainly to save money and at the time the owlet was having a lot of false alarms. For some people, they bring great peace of mind. The owlet now has a video monitor as well!
- Cabinet Locks– The twinadoes would empty every drawer and cabinet if they could haha.
For Sick Days:
- Thermometer– This is a tried and true one. We had one where you just point and click, but it was such a pain to get an accurate reading. Rectal temp is the most accurate for newborns.
- Cool Mist Humidifier– There is no worse feeling than not being able to help your congested baby, this breaks all the gunk up.
- Snot Sucker– You’re telling me I don’t have to suck my child’s snot out with my mouth? Sign me up! We have the Fridababy one and it works great too.
- Saline Spray– We have tried them all and this one is the best, it makes such a difference with runny noses.
- Infant Tylenol, Gripe Water, Gas Drops– I promise the last thing you’re going to want to do at 11 pm is run out and pick up medicine. We used all of these so many times the first year.
- Medicine Dropper– I don’t think this was around two years ago because I just used a nipple of a bottle. This would have been much easier.
- Healthcare Kit– Truly innovative products, we have loved every single item in here!
- Diaper Pail– Super happy with this one, I love that you can use regular trash bags. Newborn twins go through about 20 diapers a day! If it can handle that, it’s pretty great in my book.
- Changing Pad– There are changing pad people, and then there are change on the bed/floor people. I’m the latter, but JHC likes a changing pad. We had this one without complaints. After the boys could crawl it was pretty much game over though.
- Changing Pad Cover– These are super soft and hold up in the wash!
- Changing Pad Liners– Maybe it’s because I have twin boys, but so thankful for these liners. Most of the time they prevented me from having to change the whole cover.
- Diaper Caddy– I found that moving rooms every few hours helped us all from going stir crazy, having all the essentials in this caddy made that super easy.
- Diaper Cream– This works so well on my boys, and a tub lasts forever!
- Diapers and Wipes– We had a diaper raffle at my shower and I don’t think we bought diapers until the twins were at least 8 months old. So thankful. I love these brands, and you know exactly where to exchange for different sizes.
- Wipe Warmer– People kept telling us to skip this. They would start screaming because a cold wipe touched their bum, and I couldn’t take it. It made those middle of the night diaper changes somewhat bearable.
I know it can all seem daunting at first, but I hope this Walmart Baby Registry Checklist helped take some of the pressure off! Remember that you can’t fail at a job you were created to do. Parenting is the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through and the best. Please let me know if you have any questions! I am so excited for you!
Thank you, Walmart for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions are my own.
