This month I'm starting a new series - the Working Momma Diaries - to share some of the things I've learned while balancing work and being a momma.
For those that don't know me well, I travel for work. I used to travel every week and took a role for the current year where I travel about 1-2 times a month instead. My husband also travels for work 100% of the week. Needless to say, we have spent the past few months figuring out a new routine and balancing crazy travel, airplanes, nap times, family time, bedtime, and trying to find time for friends and romance. I looked around and realized a lot of my momma friends work and figured I'd share some of the best tips I've learned from them and my time so far.
This week I'm talking about what things - and how many - to add to your registry. I'll do some additional posts on: clothes you don't need to dry clean, keeping a convenient nursery, how to make work travel bearable AND my downloadable baby go-live checklist! Everything to help make new mommas live's easier!!
I attached a downloadable copy of my registry planner to help you build your own and linked some of my favorite items below, too! I found lots of examples of what to put on your registry, but never with recommendations about brands, links AND the quantity of how many things to buy. This downloadable copy is FREE and ALL-ENCOMPASSING for the busy momma to be able to check things off of her plate as quickly, and efficiently as possible.
Some highlights of what you will find in the downloadable registry checklist include:
1. Clothing - how many pieces of clothing to get, per size, and the types
2. Feeding - how many and what types of bottles, nursing items and toddler items
3. Bath & Potty - everything you need with diapers and potty training
4. Health & Safety - everything you need for your baby's own toiletry set and medicine cabinet
5. Gear - all of the fun things you need for on-the-go travel and trips and toys
Any other seasoned mommas have anything else to add to our list?!
