Ok, for all my mom-friends out there who have gone through this recently feel free to leave comments and help me out! I am attempting to register for Emma since we live in the middle of no where and it seems considerate to do so as soon as possible since many people will need to travel to go to purchase baby shower items. I've registered on Target and Babies 'R' Us but I'm having a little trouble knowing what to add. Here's the dilemma: (mother-in-law) has given us a crib, changing table, dresser, armiore, all the bedding, a couple of blankets, baby wash/shampoo, lotion, diaper rash cream, brush, 2 boxes of diapers, wipes, and various and sundry other items. Amanda, my sister-in-law, has a baby who will turn 1 right about the time Emma is born and is giving us clothers, a diaper genie, a breast pump (which she says is really nice- I haven't really researched them much yet), shoes, a "bebe pod" chair, and several other things. Jason and I have picked out a baby monitor that we absolutely have our hearts set on (it comes with a regular audio monitor and a sensor pad that goes under the crib mattress and can detect when the baby stops breathing- so cool!) on Target and some small stuff (like extra crib sheets in colors that match our bedding and rattles, teething toys, Baby Einstein DVDs, etc.) on both websites for people who can't afford to spend a lot. My question is: What else do I need? Am I missing something glaringly obvious?
