4 Baby Shower Registry Gifts I Wish I Knew

As a first time mom I remember it was a bit overwhelming to add products to my baby registry. After finding the items I thought I needed, I would then read reviews to determine the best option, and then add it my registry but it wasn’t until I actually became a mom that I knew the products I really needed!

My son is 13 months old and here are the top 4 must-add baby shower registry gifts that I wish I knew about before the baby was born.


#1 Dooky Baby Cover

Most baby covers enclose baby completely which poses a risk of overheating baby plus not having eye contact with my baby was not something I enjoyed. The Dooky is amazing!

  • Unique one-of-a-kind design; adjustable sunshade to block sun at any angle
  • UV-protection of UPF40+ to block over 95% of harmful UVA and UVB rays
  • Prevents overheating allowing constant airflow
  • Universal fit for all carriers and strollers
  • Easy to use
  • Trendy designs
  • Award-winning #1 Baby Cover in Holland and becoming popular fast in the US



#2 Woombie Air Baby Swaddle

I remember buzzing the nurse into my labor recovery room to rewrap our newborn baby in that nice burrito swaddle blanket (they made it look so easy but when I tried I couldn’t quite get it and it kept unraveling).

The Woombie Baby Swaddle is a lifesaver!  It requires NO wrapping – just put baby in and zip!

  • Gently cocoons baby and allows for natural movement of arms, legs and hips just like in the womb!
  • 4-way stretch fabric
  • Breathable and ventilated design allows excess heat to escape (overheating is a risk factor to SIDS; and swaddle blankets can come unraveled and cover baby’s face posing a suffocation risk)
  • Prevents face-scratching and the startle reflex from waking up baby
  • Two-way zipper for easy and quick diaper changes without disturbing baby
  • My Baby instantly calmed and settled to sleep once in his Woombie
  • 20+ awards won and a million babies and counting have used this awesome swaddle
  • Invented by a 23-year nurse and mother of five


#3 Secure Beginnings SafeSleep Breathe-Through Crib Mattress

I added a crib to my registry but I totally forgot to add a mattress!  When I was in the hospital after the baby was born my husband had to run and get a mattress with my mom. Later we discovered the SafeSleep Breathe-Through Crib Mattress and ALL PARENTS should know about this!

If a baby rolls over and is face-down this is very dangerous, but with the SafeSleep mattress, baby can breathe normally even if face down – constant airflow!

  • Invented by three professionals who all lost a loved one to SIDS
  • Bed of air layered between the mattress and crib base.
  • The airflow design lessens the risk of overheating (another risk factor of SIDS); keeps baby’s core temperature just right – not too hot, and not too cold.
  • Provides just the right amount of firmness.
  • Machine-washable
  • Integrated safety welting to prevent gaps between mattress and crib
  • 3D medical grade spacer fabric with a drying rate of over 50% quicker than a thin cotton
  • No chemicals used for fireproofing or waterproofing


#4 The Beebo

Invented by engineer dad, Martin Hill, with Shark Tank investors Ashton Kutcher and Lori Greiner, the Beebo is THE “it” baby gift of the year! It’s the first-of-its-kind hand-free baby bottle holder!  Nursing mamas have a free hand; now bottle feeding parents can too!

With Beebo you enhance and enrich feeding time, and can:

  • Read a book to baby
  • Eat dinner as a family
  • Have an extra hand to tend to toddler siblings
  • Wrap both hands around baby for a better snuggle
  • Feed baby more easily with a disability (chronic pain, amputee, etc.)
