As promised, we continue the update of BABY REGISTRY GUIDES today with the Amazon Baby Registry Guide. The Amazon Guide takes into account that you lucky ducks may have more storage (i.e., basements, attics, garages, larger closets) and you may be operating with stairs and multiple levels in your home. So our Amazon Guide includes products that give you gear that can serve a purpose downstairs to save you from going upstairs.Like the Graco Pack ‘n Play with a built in changing table. While we are not as concerned with space saving products as we are on the AMAZON BABY REGISTRY GUIDE we have still chosen multi-functional products that grow with your little one. For lots of us, sometimes the registry guide that works best is a selection of products from multiple guides. We’d love to know what products work/worked best based on your lifestyle!
