Registry: Glider/Rockers. Do we really need the 1000 (eg pottery barn) fancy things? What do you love for midnight feedings and why do you love it? Only one kid so I don’t need it to last a lifetime. Just warning you now- this registry thing has me up all night so I may post more. You all are great resources! 🙏🏽

Expecting in September here...

My tip is to register in a few places, purely for the completion discount. Both Target and Amazon will give you 15% off nearly anything, not only baby stuff. Most places limit it to 1-2 purchases and only the first $2000, so we're getting baby stuff from BuyBuyBaby and Babylist, then getting other household needs/wants from Target/Amazon.

Our registries at babylist and target are private, as to not overwhelm friends and family. BBB is our primary registry since they have the most coupons. We bought their Willa glider (~$560 with a 20% coupon) since it fits our style and will be used as a normal recliner after kids.

Yes to this advice! I made a “registry” for my second just for the Amazon discount. I didn’t share it with anyone but used the discount to refresh sheets, burp cloths, etc. it’s great.

I did not have one for my first due to living in a small apartment. I was sooo excited to get one for my second when we moved to a bigger house so I went to Buy Buy Baby, Crate and Barrel, a few boutiques and literally tried them all. Thought I would love the babyletto kiwi after reading so many good reviews but I just didn’t. Ended up with a Dutailier (Adele but I’m sure they are all cozy) and it is seriously my happy place. I don’t care if I seem like a grandma, I will rock in that thing until I die. Good thing they are made to last!

And no you don’t need it. I had a hand-me-down $50 Sears wooden rocking chair with my first that my hubs DIY reupholstered. It was cute but not comfortable and very squeaky. Not my happy place but I did breastfeed a year so you can absolutely do it.

Following because in the same boat about registry!

We got one from Crate & Barrel, the Milo Nursery Swivel Glider Chair. Ours is in a darker color that has since been discontinued. We also bought during an amazing sale (I can’t remember - Black Friday maybe?) and worked with an associate in store who gave us an additional discount, all told we saved almost 40% off the retail price. I was about 7 months pregnant when we looked at chairs and I sat in every single one at BBB, PB Kids, IKEA, furniture stores, you name it. The Milo was by far the most comfortable to me. Only bad part was shopping was delayed due to supply chain issues so the chair arrived about 6 weeks after baby was born (so we had to make do with a regular chair). Made a huge difference once it arrived, though!

I also think if it’s financially feasible, getting nursery furniture (crib / changing table) from Pottery Barn kids is worth it. It’s 100% wood, very sturdy, and they have white glove delivery where the furniture is assembled for you, in the nursery by the delivery team. It’s also beautifully made. We did do Black Friday for our nursery set and I’m glad we did. We also got a crib that will be converted into a toddler bed (and eventually, a full-size bed) down the line. If our daughter doesn’t like it when she’s old enough or wants to change it out, we’ll move it to the guest room.

I tried them at but buy baby and ended up with one around $350. I’d say it gliding and reclining was helpful for contact naps where eventually I realized I was there for the full nap time and wanted to relax and scroll on my phone or read my ebook.

Anyone getting pressure from parents to drop this type of chaotic job? My younger brother (four years my junior) just had twins.

My father the other day reminded me of the classic and very dated movie Marty. “Hey Steve, you want to be Marty!? All his much younger siblings had a family/kids.” Yikes...
