Must haves for your natural baby registry
**This post may contain affiliate links. See Disclosure
This is my list of natural baby registry items that I feel are necessary for a new baby. Since becoming a mom I wish I would’ve known a little more when it came to creating my registry. There were ALOT of things that I registered for that never used. This list includes everything that I have used with my LO. Somethings I received at my shower, but more than half of everything I purchased myself. I can say that everything on this list has worked very well for me.
Where to register
I would suggest registering at multiple places. That’s gives you more options if there’s something you really want that the other doesn’t provide. I registered at Target, Amazon, and Buy Buy Baby. I was able to find the bulk of my natural baby products on Amazon though. Target of course has a lot of cute baby items that I couldn’t pass up! Target and Amazon both give you a little gift for registering with them. It’s pretty nice too!
I did not register for a baby carrier and I wish I would have. I never really used my stroller. My daughter wasn’t a big fan of riding in one. My favorite carriers are the Boba wrap and the Tula carrier. The Boba is perfect for the newborn stage, and the Tula will last you from 7lbs till 45lbs with an infant insert
- 1 Boba Carrier
- 1 Tula Carrier
- Tula Infant Insert
These are some of the baby care items that I used on a regular basis.
The Nose Frida is AMAZING! At first I was just going to use the bulb that came from the hospital, but the bulb just didn’t cut it plus it can grow mold! Gross right! The Nose Frida is detachable so you can wash the parts, and they are easily replaceable.
Once your little one starts getting teeth you’re gonna need a tooth brush. The Banana Brush is 100% food grade silicone and is super easy to clean. Prior to her getting teeth I just used a wash cloth to clean her gums.
Dr. Bronners Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil was my holy grail! I used it for everything cradle cap, diaper rash, and baby acne you name it I’ve probably used coconut oil for it! The jar lasted me the first 12 months.
In the early months rectal temperature is the more reliable source for a baby. I used the Safety First thermometer and it worked perfectly. You can also add thermometer covers so you can keep it sanitary.
- 1 Nose Frida
- 1 Thermometer
- 1 Pack Thermometer Covers
- 1 Jar Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil
- 1 Silicone Tooth Brush
For teething I went with a silicone teether and a wooden teether. This one was my daughters favorite because she was able to really chew on the pointy projections. I also purchased a teething necklace it was a life saver when we were out and about. It gave her something to do to keep her occupied. The wooden teether was my go to for car rides. Since it has the rings it also provided her some entertainment.
- 2 Teething Necklaces
- 1 Wooden Teether
- 1 Silicone Teething Ball
My daughter was never into “toys” she found more excitement in things like water bottles. The crinkle from it was probably very intriguing. Once my little was about 5 months old I discovered Montessori. I wish I would’ve known about it prior to delivery because it’s so simple. This Wooden bell rattle and this Natural Skwish rattle were both big hits with my daughter. They both help to develop fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.

We chose to cloth diaper our daughter. I wanted to be brave and cloth diaper in the hospital, however I decided to wait until we got home. While at the hospital I used The Honest Company diapers. They are made without latex, chlorine processing, fragrances, or lotions. We chose Waterwipes as our disposable wipe option. I loved that they were always nicely moistened. To keep diaper rash away the Badger Diaper cream worked well. It’s all natural with no funky ingredients. I felt safe using it on a new baby. You can also use it with cloth diapers, I recommend using a liner to keep staining away from the Zinc Oxide.
I suggest 12 Newborn or small sized Prefolds, 6 Newborn Covers, and 12-14 Newborn AIOs(All in Ones). That gives you a total of around 26 diapers in your newborn stash. Prefolds and covers are really easy to clean, while AIOs function as easily as disposables. I would go with about 12 Cloth wipes . I found that they came in handy for those really big messy diaper moments. For the dirty diapers you will need approximately 2 travel wet bags for on the go, and 2 pail liners to use at home.
At around 4 months I introduced my One Size diapers. One size diapers are made to last until Potty Training. I recommend 12 Medium prefolds , 6 covers, 10 One Size AIOs, and 6 workhorse fitted diapers. That’s 28 diapers that will last you from approximately 4 months till potty training! The plus side of using cloth is that it saves money, and you can you them for another baby!
- 12 Newborn or small sized Prefolds
- 6 Newborn Covers
- 12-14 Newborn AIOs
- 12 Cloth Wipes
- 2 Packs Disposable Liners
- 2 Travel Wet Bags
- 2 Pail Liners
- 12 Medium
- 6 One Size Covers
- 10 One Size AIO’s
- 3 Medium Workhorse Fitted Diapers
- 3 Large Workhorse Fitting Diapers
- 1 Case Waterwipes
- 1 Pack Newborn Diapers
- 1 Pack Size One Diapers
- 2 Diaper Rash Cream
- 2 Cloth Diaper Safe Diaper Balms
Breast and Bottle Feeding
Assuming that you’re going the Breastfeeding routine. I recommend these items to add to your registry. I also included feeding accessories for when baby starts solids.
The Comotomo Bottles are nice because they somewhat mimic the breast making it easier to switch between the two. The Medela Manual Pump was very effective at removing milk. It’s easy to clean and you can take it with you if you’re on the go. Reusable nursing pads were a lot more comfortable to me than the disposable pads. The Earth Mama nipple butter worked wonders in the early days of breastfeeding. If you plan to return to work I suggest adding 3 packs of Milk Storage bags to your registry.
Once we started solids I purchased the EZPZ mat. It is easy to clean and it sticks to the high chair tray. The Bapron was the best bib I found, it covers the baby down to their waist. It’s super easy to clean, you can just take it off and rinse it in the sink and allow it to air dry. These silicone spoons were nice and small enough for my daughter to feed herself. If you plan to make your own baby food I recommend these storage containers.
- 1 Medela Manual Breast Pump
- 4 Comotomo Bottles
- 3 Packs Reusable Breast Pads
- 1 Nipple Butter
- 3 Packs Milk Storage Bags
- 1 Nursing Cover
- 2 Silicone Plates
- 2 Baprons
- 2 Packs of spoons
- 12 storage containers
It took me a while to find a body wash that I felt was safe to use on my daughter. I went with The Honest Company unscented body wash and lotion. It is truly unscented and I never had any problems with my daughters skin. In addition to that coconut oil was also my go to moisturizer! The Burt Bees towels and wash cloths were nice and soft. I had issues with other towels drying my daughters skin out.
- 2 Body wash
- 2 Body Lotions
- 2 Towels
- 6 Wash Cloths
