I had never been to a Babies “R” Us before I was pregnant with Maggie. Then it was time to create a baby registry and a friend recommended I find the closest store and head over to get started picking out what I’d need for baby. I found out there was a Babies “R” Us just a few miles from our house and went to check it out. Since that first trip I am sure I’ve been to Babies “R” Us well over 100 times. In the beginning, I’d only register for a few things at a time because I kept finding out there were more things I had no idea I needed. Then as I got closer to my due date I was nervous that I wasn’t “prepared” and somehow wandering the aisles at Babies “R” Us made me feel better.
We felt like we had really stocked up on what we needed. Then, Maggie arrived and over the next few months, we realized there were a lot of things we’d have to get more of and a lot of things we had never thought about registering for.
Since those first few months with our little Maggie, we’ve added a few more babies to our crew and many, many more trips to Babies “R” Us. With our newest bundle of joy, Miles, I feel like I’ve finally gotten the hang of knowing what we really need each month.
I thought about that first year with Maggie and how I wish there were checklists to bring to Babies “R” Us to help “refresh” what I had registered for. I loved the printout they gave me at the desk when I first registered. It was so helpful. I created these free printables to hopefully help on trips to Babies “R” Us, after the baby arrives and as they grow.
How To Use Them:
- Click on the “Download Registry Refresh” link below
- Download and print
- Cut out and leave in the nursery
- I recommended things to look for on your “refresh” trips and also left some blank lines to add in your own items you know you’ll need to pick up at Babies “R” Us
- Add even more items on the back
- Bring with you when you head to Babies “R” Us and “refresh” your registry!
Just like our early days shopping Babies “R” Us, I never leave without a stop at the diaper aisle. From the tiny newborn size Huggies Little Snugglers to the never ending need for Huggies Natural Care Wipes we always have to visit this aisle. Huggies Natural Care Wipes and Huggies Little Snugglers are available at Babies “R” Us stores nationwide.
I’ve enjoyed in in-store experience I’ve had shopping in Babies “R” Us. It’s more than just a place to buy baby products. Being in store there are people to answer questions, other moms to chat with in the aisles and even classes.
If you didn’t already know (because I didn’t for a while) Babies “R” Us has Baby’s Basics classes. They are taught with the help of a professional and new and expectant parents can learn how to care for a baby during the first 6 months of infancy –from bathing to diaper changing and beyond! This classes are hosted by a local community medical partner. Check your local store for class availability and times.
Enjoy those trips to Babies “R” Us before you know it they will be grow. I blinked my eyes and Maggie went from newborn diapers to elementary school. Hopefully these printable baby checklists will help you on your next trip.
