I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now. Putting together a baby registry is a hugely daunting task. Wedding registries are easier because you don’t have to obsess over things like safety and brain development. You’re a fully formed adult and the wine glasses you pick really aren’t going to impact your life that much. Not the case with a baby! It feels like every tiny detail must be researched and thoroughly vetted. My husband and I spent what felt like eons mulling over every baby registry selection we made. And y’know what? Some of it just didn’t work for us. Other things, however, felt like absolute life savers. Those are the things I’m going to focus on in this post.
If you’ve hung around these parts for a while now, you know that I wrote up blog posts for my first, second, and third trimesters while I was pregnant with Sunday. But are you aware that the fourth trimester is a thing? It’s a bit of a misnomer because in reality there are only three trimesters (I mean, duh). That said, it’s become a common term for the first three months after giving birth. And it’s something I don’t really hear talked about often. Once the baby is out in the world, they’re kind of all anyone cares about. Seriously – you go from having medical checkups like every other week to a single postpartum exam after six weeks. It can be jarring.
