This past Saturday was a big day...we decided to start our baby registry at Babies-r-Us (BRU). We got up bright and early and went to Mimi's Cafe for a nice breakfast. We knew we wanted to be at BRU shortly after it opened since it gets packed. We were the first ones at the registry desk and it wasn't long before we were armed with this...
...our very own scanner. This is a shoppers dream come true. We started out with the strollers, then the high chairs, and then moved on from there. I think we spent the most time at the baby carriers, which is kind of silly because will we really use it after we get back from China? Some of them were so hard to figure out that we just gave up on them and we never even picked one. For those of you who are already home, do you still use yours?
This is the carrier that had the most back support, but it has a big price tag to go with it. All the other carriers seemed like they would cause back pain/shoulder pain after about an hour or so.
Here's Joe testing out the chairs...
This is the only time the poor guy got to relax during the entire 3 hour shopping spree. Who knew that registering took SO long!
We registered for two different kinds of strollers...a regular full day out stroller and a light weight stroller. The Combi Helio Ex Stroller has a unique tri-fold for traveling and it's super lightweight. The Graco Quattro Tour Deluxe is the one we selected for a full day out. For those with little ones at home, is it a good idea to have two strollers to use in different situations or is this a waste?
Also, I wasn't quite sure which type of bottles are best so I decided on the Playtex Drop-Ins and selected both the 8oz and 4 oz size, plus fast, medium and slow flow nipples. Any advice on this?
