Baby Registry Items: Books, Clothes and Keepsakes

This is the smallest section of your registry and some people don’t even register anything in this category. If you do want to put a few things on your registry, these are my recommendations.

Baby 411 Book

By Ari Brown and Denise Fields. This is a great book! You can look up all sorts of topics and get professional guidance. 

What to Expect the First Year Book

By Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel. This is a great book to ready monthly to know where your child should be developmentally. It is helpful in preparing questions for well-baby doctor visits as well. 


I didn’t register for many clothes because people will pick up random things here and there. If anything, register for some footed sleepers with the fold over mitten cuffs.

Baby Hangers

I hang almost all of our kids’ clothes so we have hundreds of these now. 

Baby Memory Book

If you have a local Hallmark, go and check out their memory books. Our town’s Hallmark went out of buisness so I had to order our 3rd child’s baby book online. I’m happy with the one we bought at Amazon. 

Video Camera

Though you will probably do most of the video recording on your phone, it is nice to have a video camera for the big events. 

DSLR Camera

A DSLR Camera with a sport mode is necessary in photographing little ones on the go. It’s impossible for them to be still! I know that these cameras are expensive, but they are worth it in the long run.
