This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, a brand that offers thousands of amazing products for your little one! All opinions are my own.
One of the most exciting yet overwhelming things we had to tackle a few months into our pregnancy was setting up a baby registry. I thought planning a wedding was daunting, well awaiting for the arrival of a new human is next level! There are so many things a baby needs and such a huge selection and array of brands to choose from, it is tough to even know where to begin the process.
Luckily we already had so many experienced friends making great recommendations to us and a few even shared their own baby registry planning list, which really made the job much more manageable. But I’ll have to say, our decision of choosing buybuy BABY as our baby registry partner was what really helped us through the process.
There are many self-serve online baby registry websites nowadays, but many of these sites simply give you the option to add and remove items via online only. Kyle and I strongly felt it was necessary to see the products in person, be educated about them, learn about their safety features, and have the ability to easily manage our registry in person or online – these are all the basics that buybuy BABY offers with their baby registry service. In addition to the basic features, buybuy BABY delivers perks such as referral rewards, price match promise, and a 10% completion discount which makes a big difference when you realize that a small human needs a lot of big ticketed items!
We visited the Vaughan store when I was about 4 months pregnant. On arrival, we were greeted by the baby registry desk and began to fill out our registry profile which can be accessed in person and online anytime. Once all the important information was collected, we were then introduced to an in-store expert who guided us through a free one-on-one personal shopping experience. She was SUPER knowledgeable and showed us all the product must-haves, how to use them, and answered all the questions we had. If Kyle and I attempted this exercise on our own, we’d definitely be choosing the wrong (and unnecessary) products!
We were so impressed by the assortment of must haves buybuy BABY carries from strollers, car seats to toys and accessories. It was also great to see the range of brands available at every style and budget, which can cater to families with different needs. We also took the opportunity to browse through the collection of baby nursery furniture and décor pieces and was so thrilled to see some of the brands such as Babyletto I had my heart set on was also offered by them! If a particular item may not be available in stores, there is also a HUGE selection online to choose from.
Navigating the online registry is super simple! Items can be easily added or removed (you can even add items offered by Bed Bath & Beyond!) and the baby registry link can also be shared with family and friends to help them select a gift for the baby. You can see what items have been purchased and by whom, which makes it that much easier when preparing for thank you cards and notes. One of the things I LOVE the most about shopping and registering at buybuy BABY is how fast online shipping is!! Most items ship within 24 hours and shipping is free over $50.
If you’re looking to get started with your own baby registry and don’t know where to begin, I highly recommend considering buybuy BABY. Hands on experience and knowledgeable staff is key! Because who has time to hassle when you’re making life in your belly!
