Newborn Registry: A Minimalist Approach

Updated: Jun 10, 2019


Navigating the endless aisles of Buy Buy Baby has it's fun moments, but for many it can also bring on stress and anxiety about what you REALLY need for your new bundle of joy. Firstly, it is important to remember every family is different. Each expecting mama will have a totally unique registry list!


This guide takes a minimalist approach to buying for a newborn and infuses it with a seasoned mama's favorite brands. I hope this back-to-basics guide helps you feel more prepared for your baby's first few months as you nest and await the special arrival of your little one.
