Registry Roundup: Feeding and Changing

Part three of the registry roundup will focus on feeding and changing. I figured these two categories kind of went together (if you know what I mean). 

I guess we'll start with feeding, seeing as how otherwise we'd kind of be putting the cart before the horse. I plan to breastfeed Violet, but we'll still need bottles of course. Lucky for me, my sister-in-law will be lending me her breast pump. Yay!

Eventually Violet will get to an age where she'll want some other things (AKA solid foods). Thinking ahead, we put a few items for solid foods on our registry as well. Then of course there are the items for the food that doesn't make it down - burp cloths, bibs, etc. So lots more gear here than I thought there'd be. Here's what we decided on:

Clockwise from upper left:

Boppy with Organic Slipcover - Babies R Us
Boppy Protective Slipcover (not pictured) - Babies R Us
10 Pack White Bibs - Babies R Us
think baby Feeding Set - Amazon
Organic Cotton Burp Cloths - Babies R Us
Boon Saucer Slip Resistant Plate - Amazon
Orange Monster Placemat - re:modern
Dr. Brown's BPA Free Infant Set - Babies R Us
Dishwasher Baskets - Babies R Us
Boon Toddler Catch Bow - Amazon
Tommy Tippee Bib - Babies R Us
Innobaby Stack n Seal Containers - Amazon

I also decided to register for this nursing cover:


And of course, if you feed baby, you must also change baby! We originally planned to put a diaper changing pad on top of our hand-me-down dresser. Unfortunately, we quickly discovered that the dresser is actually too small for a standard changing pad. The dresser is the perfect size for our tiny space (not to mention free), so it will be staying. So we had to come up with another solution. We looked into some wall-mounted changing stations and decided that we really didn't have any wall space for one.

Next, we came across this beauty from Oeuf:
But unfortunately at $230 (ouch!) it is more expensive than even our crib, and we couldn't bring ourselves to spend that much. I've seen people make their own, but we have plenty of other projects. Eventually, I found this gem on the web:


Not quite as stylish, but very functional and it has great reviews. The really nice thing is that it will actually hang on the side of the crib when not in use. It's also sold (and for much less) on Amazon and at Walmart, but is currently out of stock on each site. Although I know that you can really change a baby anywhere, we would kind of like a designated spot. Hopefully this does the trick!

Here are a few essentials we picked out in the diapering department:

Clockwise from top left:
JJ Cole Diaper and Wipes Pod - Babies R Us
Boudreaux's Butt Paste - Babies R Us
Diaper Genie - Babies R Us  
Diaper Genie Refills - Babies R Us 

There were a few travel diaper pads that I really loved the look of, but in the end I picked something practical (read easy to clean) and inexpensive. Plus my sister-in-law has this one and really likes it.

This one is very pretty though:

 So there you have it! If you have any other suggestions for us, as a first time mom I'd be glad to hear about them. 


  1. The boppy has been my best friend for YEARS! After a nursing pillow it's a sitting helper for baby, neck pillow for mom and even helps you with sitting after birth. Greatest pillow ever :D
    They have a baby carrier called a ring sling (I found a Maya ring sling at a yard sale for only $20) that doubles as a nursing cover- I love double duty!

    Diaper changing pads were my other best friend. I was so glad I never got a changing table because it would have been useless for me.

    I got over my diaper genie after a few weeks. Some people love them and others hate them but you won't find many in the middle. Don't buy too many refills until you are sure you love it!

  2. I am in love with that changing pad from Etsy! So cute! Thank god I decided to register at so I can put one on my baby registry! I also registered for the same boppy as you did, and the think baby feeding set--both so cute too!
