This is a list I started for myself that now acts as a personal registry... :)
Stuff I have (or have coming)
Toddler toys... and toys in general
Clothing 0-24 months
Diaper bag(?) (We have a wide assortment of various bags - one of them could be made to work, I'm sure...)
Diaper rash cream
Changing pad for dresser
cradle mattresses and bedding
Heavy-duty stroller - !!!
Baby powder, cotton swabs, shampoo and whathaveyous
Stuff I need
(I should note that just about everything listed here except for diapers would be fine - preferred, even! - as second-hand.)
Crib?? May have alternatives - would need bedding with crib.
Bottles and accessories (Planning to breastfeed, but will need a few for backup/pumping)
Baby tub (countertop, not tub-spanning... we don't have a tub!)
Baby grooming kit
Ear and rectal thermometers, digital
Ear sucker, recommended: http://www.fridababy.com/shop/nosefrida/
Warm cover for carseat - 1 coming! Probably need 2! I have a Graco Snugride22 on order, I think that's a standard size?
nursing bras and pads - I have one bra, so far, but who knows what size I'll settle on. Have pads.
Cradle/crib sheets - 36" x 18". We've got a few on order, but they are plain and few. And the company muffed up our order - twice - so they may get here quite late...
Because you can't have enough books, really.
Wookie the Chew!!
(The original Winnie the Pooh)
Your favorite childhood book.
Other things I won't turn down...
(I don't think they make one, but a StarGate teething ring would make me squeal in joy. Other fandoms of delight include Star Trek, various superheros [Batman, particularly]... science humor is always good.)
*Despite being relatively green hippy-types, we are going with disposable diapers because we haul our own water, and live where there is no pick-up service. We sometimes have to ration water in the winter when the driveway is bad and we can't get water in. Cloth diapers, though appealing, are not particularly practical for us.
