Baby Gift Registry Checklist

Friends and relatives love to give gifts for new born baby's. So why not make it easy for them by organizing a baby gift registry? You will get all the items you need and want for your new baby and nursery and your friends and relatives will be happy as they will be giving you something that you will love and use. Make sure you include items that will be used not only from birth but those that are used from 6 to 12 months.

To give you an idea of what to include on the registry we have a checklist for you to follow.
