My most useful Baby Registry items

A Listmania! list by Karen Z (Danbury, CT USA)
The list author says: "I used Amazon for my baby registry (faithfully following "Baby Bargains" and reviewers' advice, and trying to avoid the "extras" that I'd add to the registry if I was distracted in a store. In hopes of repaying all this advice - and in case we ever have another baby - I thought I'd list the products that we've used and enjoyed the most!!

A couple notes: while Amazon is my go-to place, some of these items can be found used (Once Upon a Child, Goodwill) or cheaper at Burlington (Coat Factory) Baby, Costco, or with a coupon at Babies R Us.

***If you're a new mom, or expecting, try out Amazon Mom!! It's free, you acquire additional months of free Prime shipping as you buy through Amazon, and with Subscribe & Save, I get about 200 Pampers diapers for $30; they arrive at my door 2 days after I order them. This is an amazing plus of Amazon!"
