We've begun registering since it seems we will be having baby showers soon. We're registered at Target and Amazon.com. We are not registering at Babys'R'Us because they get a failing score from HRC. The decisions are overwhelming, particularly for the stroller/car seat thing. I don't even know what to look for, and I don't understand the features.
The good news is that stuff is rolling in from everywhere. We now have four people offering us their baby stuff. People hold onto this stuff forever - one couple's youngest is 6 years old and they are offering us a crib! So we are renting a truck soon and going house to house to pick everything up and then putting it somewhere in our home. Ahh!
