Lil Community: Your Top Five Baby Registry Items

Pregnancy brings out both the best and worst in people. LilSugar reader beaner shared her latest revelation about pregnancy in The Pregnancy Posse group.

I'm due at the end of August and have been working on my baby registry. I'm trying to ask all the moms I know for advice, but I'm still feeling overwhelmed. I'd love to hear everyone's list of their top five Items for baby. Is the Diaper Genie a must? Do you love a specific model baby carrier? Best breast pump? This mom-to-be-thanks you in advance!

Enough about baby, lets talk about what YOU will need after baby is here: 1. Postpartum Abdominal Binder 2. C-Panty c-section underwear (if you have a c-section, to help heal the incision). 3. Boppy to help with nursing 4. Diastasis Rehab splint to help with abdominal separation 5. Undercover Mama - turns any shirt into a nursing shirt. Keeps from exposing your stomach, sides and belly to the world when you are trying to nurse.

A boppy is a must. It's very versatile for you and baby. A good floor mat for when they're little. My wee one loved her Baby Einstein one with the world light on it. It entertained her for hours. Aveeno baby products are the best and smell great. I would suggest you not get a breast pump until you are sure you are able to breast feed. It can be really hard and it doesn't work for many women. Don't waste your money on something that is completely nonreturnable until you know for sure your milk has come in and flowing properly.

anything that comes in lots of different varieties that take a while to get used to - bottles, carriers, cloth diapers. It's nice to be able to find what you like without spending 200 bucks to do so.

as a brand new mom, i second the need for lots of bottles (though I am breast feeding), I love having cloth diapers and swaddling blankets, newborn soothie pacifiers, diapers, diapers, diapers :) I also rented a pump from the hospital (Medela) for $50 a month- totally worth it!

Some kind of carrier (wrap, Bjorn, whatever you like...I'm still trying to figure out which type I like best) Diaper Bag Bottles (even if you're breastfeeding) Stroller Bouncy seat The diaper pail was a waste....for us anyway. Who wants to leave dirty diapers in their nursery anyway. I had a Playtex pump but maybe look into renting one from your hospital, depending on how long you plan on pumping. I hear they are much better quality.

I love my Ameda Purely Yours pump and would definitely recommend it to anyone. It has the little diaphragm that the Medela In Style doesn't have, so it keeps the milk closed off from the motor & tubing. Other stuff I couldn't live without are my Skip Hop Pronto Changing Wallet, Miracle Blanket for swaddling, Graco Snug Glider Swing (travel swing that you pop the car seat right into - helps if the LO is going down for a nap and you know you have to go somewhere soon), and the Breast Friend pillow for nursing. I also swear by my stroller, the Baby Jogger City Mini - LOVE IT!
