When we registered for Elouise I remember being so overwhelmed. I am pretty “type a” so I had done a ton of research on baby products, but nothing prepares you for the insane checklist that is handed to you with that scanner gun. I remember the amount of suggested items on the registry list to be around 300 or something equally as crazy. Well I was a sucker, because immediately all of my research and logic went out the window. If this list said I needed it, it was going on the registry! Needless to say, I ended up with all sorts of things that got used once, and even some that didn’t get used at all. It made me sick to think of all the money that could have been spent on diapers. (Why don’t babies come potty trained?) So this time I knew things had to be different, and I created a no nonsense registry filled with only the most essential items. Right now on my Instagram page you can register to win 10 of those times.
