When registering for a baby shower, Sara Lindberg and her husband, registered for many items for their baby. There are some items, however, that were left off that they promised themselves they would include the next time they were pregnant. These include homemade meals, once a week.

Some other suggestions were a date night with babysitting service from the gift giver, a donation to the child’s college fund, a professional cleaning service, items for the mom-to-be’s wardrobe, a subscription to an online tv and movie database such as Netflix or Hulu, or a body care package. These are items not typically thought of by friends and family but are so helpful to the new mom and dad.
