baby essentials: registry part 2 - feeding, diapering, bathing, health, etc.

Back for part 2 of our registry and why we registered for these things. The first part covered the gear. This time I am going to cover feeding, diapering, bathing, health, etc. 

Feeding
Medela Pump in Style - Pump-n-go tote. This pump was suggested from many people and after reading reviews, I went with this one because it is easiest to use. We also registered for these Medela accessories: quick clean wipes, 8 oz. bottles, 5 oz. bottles, feeding gift set, pump & save storage bags, washable bra pads, disposable nursing pads, lanolin, micro-steam bags, and hydrogel pads.
Playtex bottles. Again this was another suggestion from a friend. She said they worked best with her daughter because she spit-up so much and they didn't allow as much air in during feedings. I registered for multiple bottles sizes and nipples (with different flows... didn't know anything about doing that). We also registered for a bottle warmer/cooler, a travel warmer, a drying rack, and multiple different cleaning supplies.
Bumbo Floor Seat. This was something I had always heard of and had seen at many people's home so I knew I was going to register for one. We also registered for the play tray that attaches.
Graco Duodiner 3-in-1 Highchair. A lot of people said you don't need this at the beginning but I wanted to register for it just in case. I thought it would be really helpful once the baby is eating solids and holding his head up and sitting up. It also grows with the child.
Aden & Anais Burpy Bibs. Did not know these were available at Target but I was so happy when I found them. These got great reviews and I love that they can be used as both burp cloth and bib. We also registered for these: Aden & Anais bib, Tommee Tippee Blose to Nature bibs, Carter's Boys teething bibs, and multiple different burp clothes.

We also registered for lots of different feeding time accessories and pacifiers: Munchkin Soft Tip Infant Spoons, Munchkin Snack Catcher, Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder, Munchkin Click Lock Trainer Cup, Munchkin Click Lock Flip Straw, NUK Design Orthostar, and NUK Trendline Sports Orthopedic.

Diapering
We are mostly registering for Huggies products but I am having a diapers and wipes shower (thrown by my students!) so I know we will be getting other brands as well. I would love to get some Honest Co. diapers as well, so I might be ordering those. We also registering for things that will make the diapering process easier like A + D Ointment, and Mustela Stelactiv. We also decided not to get any kind of Diaper Genie or things like that. We just thought it would be just as easy to walk to the trash can in the garage than deal with that. If you think it is really necessary, please let me know if I will regret my decision haha!

Bathing
Summer Infant Deluxe Baby Bather and Summer Infant Soothing Spa and Shower. When choosing a bather for the baby, I wasn't sure what was necessary. My mom had always said they just washed us in the sink so I didn't know how that was going to happen because none of our sinks would fit a baby comfortably. When at target we registered for the simple one and then registered for a bigger one at Babies 'r Us. What suggestions do you mothers out there have? I just don't know what is needed.

We registered for many bath time accessories like hooded towels, wash clothes, robe set, shampoos, bubble baths, body washes, a no tears rinse cup, bunches of toys, a bath kneeler for our poor knees, and two spout covers (I think I like the whale one the best).

Health
Crane Cool Mist Humidifier or Safety 1st Ultrasonic 360 Degree Humidifier. The first big thing for health was a humidifier. Didn't really research this but it looked nice so I decided to get that. Also, one of the things on the Babies 'r Us had on the must-have list was an air purifier. Is that necessary?

There was also necessary stuff to register for like a nasal aspirator, a 4-in-1 thermometer, Baby Orajel Nightime, Baby Orajel Swabs, Destin Diaper Rash Ointment, Little Tummy's Gas Relief Drops, Johnson's Hand and Face Wipes, Safety 1st Grooming & Healthcare Kit, Safety 1st Medicine Dispensing Kit, Safety 1st Oral Care
