Things You Can Skip
Even if you are creating a larger, more comprehensive registry, there are a few things you won't need to buy. For example, you don't need to register for clothes because you will get tons of clothes as gifts when Baby is born. My son had more 0-3 months clothing options than I could use, and that's with changing him a few times a day due to diaper blowouts. Don't worry about registering for small busy toys like rattles, unless you see one that you cannot live without. You will likely find small busy toys tucked into gifts, and your infant doesn't really need more than one or two busy toys until after a few months. If you want gift cards or books to grow your child's library, be sure to include that information in your baby shower invitations or spread the word through friends. Instead of registering for board books, your friends can purchase ones that they love or that remind them of your family, and your child's library will be much more meaningful.
