Congratulations! Baby is on the way and it’s time to get planning, which means you could use a baby registry checklist to get you started.

Keep in mind, a pregnant woman unleashed without a plan can be dangerous. If you’ve ventured into the baby section at Target, your pregnancy hormones may have sent you over the edge with the endless possibilities.

Are you wondering how you are supposed to know what’s necessary? We’ve compiled a registry checklist to help you narrow down the must-haves and the things that are nice to have.
