Registry Rush

So today was an experience. We registered at store #1 (Wal-Mart). Tomorrow is store #2 (Babies R Us). I was a little disappointed that Wal-Mart didn't have a lot of what I was looking swaddlers, snow suits, mittens, and a lot of other stuff. I was trying to hurry too because Chris' incision was hurting and he needed to get home to take some medication.

The lady told us to scan each item as many times as we wanted. For example, if you wanted 10 boxes of diapers, scan the tag 10 times. Well, I just got home and had to re-do the registry because apparently, that is NOT how it works! It's hard to fix at home because not all items have a picture, and not all of the descriptions make sense!

Another slightly disappointing thing that they didn't have a lot of boy stuff. There were plenty of girl options, but for example, when it came to the 5 packs of onesies, I had three choices. The girl section, on the other hand, had over 10 choices. So I will have to do a lot of looking at Babies R Us for basics as well as everything else on my list.

Tomorrow is a new day though, and I am so very excited! I am going to be registering for my stroller, car seat and a lot of "big items." I am now trying to figure out how to add some of the Internet items to my Wal-Mart registry (like my crib), and I'm so confused! I kept texting my best friend from the store asking for advice, and I'll have to see if she knows how to do that too!

Oh....and for the "rush" part...My first shower (of three) is Oct 18! My step MIL just sent out the invites, so I really had to get a move on!

This sounds like SO much fun! I'm sure you'll find a lot more things at Babies R Us!! They always have a TON of things :)

I know what you mean - it does seem like girls have more options than boys. When my nephew was a baby it was so hard to find cute things for him to wear!

Can't wait to see pictures from your baby showers! : )

Okay, I found that adding online was easier at Wal-Mart than either Babies R Us or Target and I found that Walmart had a surprisingly good online selection. I agree that in the store, they are limited, but since people can shop for you online, you've got a lot of options. Go to and scroll to the very bottom. In tiny print, you will see 'registry'. Click on that. Under 'Baby Registry', click on 'Edit'. Either sign into your Walmart account or register for one. Once you've entered your pin and gotten in, just act like you are shopping. For instance, at the very top, enter 'Crib' and click 'Find'. Click on the name of the crib you like and under 'Add to Cart', you will see a small word 'Registry'. When you click on that, you have added this item to your registery.

If you want to change the number of an item you scanned at the store, view your registry and you will see how many of each item you are requesting. Change the number and click 'update' at the top.

I hope this helps!

OH MY!!! I am so stressed out just thinking about registering!!! Where? When? For what? UHHHHHH!!!!! It is so fun to think about, but when it comes time to actually do it...stressful! I agree, there is so much less boy stuff. However, there are some awefully cute finds! Some of the cutest baby things I have seen have been for little boys! Good luck!
