BABY: Baby Registry Must Haves

BABY: Baby Registry Must Haves by New Jersey lifestyle blogger What's For Dinner Esq.

To be completely honest, I had NO IDEA where to start when it came to putting together my baby registry. Thankfully, I have several very helpful friends who have had babies recently who were very generous with their baby knowledge and shared their Baby Registry Must Haves!

We have also been very fortunate to have been gifted several products for bebe W. They are listed below. You will be seeing many of them on the blog very soon!

One of the sweet brands that reached out was Fridababy. My friends have been RAVING about their NoseFrida and NailFrida. Fridababy was nice enough to send along one of their Fridababy Bitty Bundle of Joy Kits which includes both of these amazing products. They also sent me a second one to give away to ONE lucky What’s For Dinner Esq. reader! Scroll down to enter the GIVEAWAY! It ends on August 31st!

Once bebe W arrives and I have had the chance to try all of these products, I will be doing a review post. I will also be doing a nursery reveal once it is completed. I cannot wait to share it with you!
