Baby clothes and gadgets can seem adorable and fun to add to a registry, but they can also be expensive. Not to mention they can end up in a donation pile after baby is born. When creating a Minimalist baby registry, aim to choose items that are versatile and functional. These items will help you save time and money, and reduce clutter in your home.
A minimalist baby registry should also include a few essentials for new moms. A great option is the Ubbi stainless steel bottle sterilizer. It can be used to sterilize bottles, pacifiers and other baby supplies. It also locks in odors and is BPA free. You will also need a few sets of cloth towels, like this Pottery Barn Kids set. The cloth towels are lightweight, soft and wash well. They are a smart alternative to plastic towels that can hold in odors and aren’t made for a gentle baby skin. You will also want a few baby swaddle blankets. These are a must have to keep your baby cozy and can also be used as nursing covers, car seat covers and lightweight everyday blankets. My favorite swaddle blanket brand is Aden + Anais.
For a minimalist baby registry, you will need a good portable baby monitor. Choose something that is light-weight, has a great camera feature, and can be taken with you on trips or to friends’ homes. I love the Infant Optics monitor because it checks all of these boxes and is super affordable.
