Having a baby is so exciting! Until you realize that you need like 1,200 things to take care of them properly.
Creating a baby registry can be daunting and overwhelming. Do you really need bottles (umm, yes) or baby Converse (cute, but probably not)? So if you've been there before, share what you learned after creating a registry!
What's one item you're so glad you added to your baby registry?
Maybe it was a bouncer to keep your baby occupied while you showered or washed dishes for the first time in weeks.
Or a baby shusher that somehow made your newborn fall asleep and stay asleep for longer than 20 minutes.
Perhaps it was a convertible carrier so you could leave the house without feeling like you'd already abandoned and disappointed your child.
Or a banana teether you thought was a joke, but ended up being the only thing to stop your baby from screaming while teething.
Whatever it was, let us know what item saved your life as a new parent in the comments below to be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post.
