There is no sample registry that would be perfectly suitable for every person. To get more specific suggestions and comments to help you decide what is best for you, click on the directed links under the specific categories, or go to my Baby Stuff homepage. Below is a list of items that together would form a pretty ideal baby registry for the majority of people. You certainly don’t need every single item here. There are many other products that would be helpful as well. This is just a great starting point!
This is a good registry for your first baby. If it is your second or third (or fourth, or fifth…), I’d obviously suggest different things. And yes, you can create a registry for a child when it isn’t your first! I created one with my second and third, for the sole purpose of using the completion discount to get things we needed/wanted! I didn’t share the registry info with people, even though some friends found them on their own and sent gifts. (Oops: with Baby #3 I was so overwhelmed that the completion discount expired before I could get the remaining items — sad). A registry is a great place to organize your thoughts on what products you want to buy. When your baby comes, you can get a discount on the remaining items!
Everything below, you can find on Amazon. The Amazon Baby Registry offers a 10% completion discount. If you join Amazon Family, that discount jumps to 15% and you can get 20% off diaper subscriptions.

I don’t put a crib on this sample registry, because that is something you have to pick out for yourself! But if you want to read more about well-loved cribs and other spots for your baby to sleep, click here: Baby Sleep Spots
