We know there are certain essentials that every baby registry needs: a trustworthy car seat, a safe place to put down baby, a great set of bottles, a diaper pail (bonus points if it seals in smells and is easy to open with one hand). All of these items are known must-haves when it comes to rounding out your buybuyBaby registry. If building a baby registry is one more overwhelming task on an ever-growing list of things to do before the baby arrives, we are sharing some of our favorites to help narrow down the list. 

buybuyBaby makes it as easy as possible for you to find the right registry essentials for baby. For first-time parents creating a registry, buybuyBaby makes it easy to get everything you need in one place with extra savings benefits like a 15% completion discount. Plus, for the bigger-ticket items like car seats, strollers, and baby swings, any items over $100 are automatically available for “group gifting,” meaning family and friends can easily go in together on items you really want! 

These 10 items below are the ones our editors stand behind.

1. Deluxe+ Dock

I can personally attest that my son spent a good amount of his first few months in this incredible invention! The Dock-a-Tot was fairly new then, but now, moms know that it's a life-saver for keeping baby relaxed safely (supervised) on any surface. Many colors and patterns available.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends babies sleep on their back on a flat, firm surface, like in a crib or bassinet.
