Setting up a baby registry is one of those fun things you get to do before the baby is born (maybe as fun as designing the baby’s nursery).
It’s kind of like writing a Christmas list when you’re a little kid…you pick out things you want, you don’t pay for them, and you just wait and see if you get the items on your list.
It used to be that you would physically go into a store and set up a registry there (and some people still do it this way). Friends and family would then need to go into that store to make a purchase off your registry.
But with the internet as it is today, you can do it all online much more efficiently, with a lot more options.
There are a few things to know about how to start a baby registry online, however.
I’ll get into those here, along with the many places you can register (with my personal recommendations).
