Build your baby wishlist
Waiting for a child, as we know, requires a lot of organization. You have to think about everything, his well-being, his comfort, his needs and yours too!
The birth list has been around for ages! Because yes, it takes equipment to welcome a baby in good conditions. And the help of our loved ones is always welcome in these moments.
In order to welcome a baby in the best conditions, you have to turn to good childcare accessories. And when you see the prices, you can sometimes get scared. This is one of the main reasons why the birth list exists!
What's the point of a birth list?
This list is literally a list of gifts that are expected for baby's arrival. These are not just gifts, but nursery accessories, or even nursery furniture that will serve you daily.
This birth list is going to complement the equipment that you will have already acquired for your baby. This can be big equipment, as well as very small accessories (a stuffed animal). It depends on what you can afford!
What do we put on a baby list?
Absolutely anything you deem necessary for you and your baby: Home decor, plush toys, early learning toys, furniture, car seats, clothing...
Here are some ideas to put on his birth list:
An evolving chair from birth to pre-teen
This pretty wooden chair is used from the birth of baby. You will be able to place your baby in its bouncer installed directly on the wooden frame. Baby will be at your height and can look at you without you being too far away.
When your child grows up, the Stokke wooden frame can be transformed into a high chair, with an integrated safety belt, and then into a normal chair to put around the table.

The Milinane cotton diaper bag is an essential. With its many interior pockets and 3 handles, it will become your best ally in everyday life for you and baby.
A cute nightlight for baby's room
This pretty night light will help baby fall asleep. A light light can reassure him. Especially if it is a rabbit!

A modern, space-saving changing table
A nice invention from one of our favorite brand: the changing table that folds up. Nothing better for a spacious and well organized room!
A health record protector to keep your child's medical records preciously
The health booklet is undoubtedly one of the most important documents that we get when we give birth. To protect this booklet, what better than a nice health booklet protector? It will extend the life of all your child's medical documents.

Where and how to make a birth list
On the internet
We recommend two birth list sites: Mesenvies or Milirose. They are convenient and easy to use. You complete your birth list with everything that will make you happy, share it with your loved ones so that they complete it.
Smallable, specialist in decor, clothing for families has also launched its own birth list on its site. You will surely find your happiness there!
Thanks to these sites, you can share this list on your social networks or send it by e-mail to your loved ones.
Some sites offer you to participate financially in a gift without financing it 100%. For example, for a Charlie Crane brand Levo baby bouncer, your cousin can put in 150e of participation and your best friend will fill in the rest so that you have the bouncer when your baby is born.

And for those who might not be connected yet
You can create your birth list directly in a specialty store. Go to Bébé9 for example, Aubert, Autour de bébé...
This is ideal to buy the gift directly in the store. Your loved ones go to this store, give your name to an advisor and find your birth list, with what has already been purchased or not. Parents and grandparents often favor this system, if they are close to a store.
How to ask relatives.
Requesting gifts can sometimes be a little embarrassing, even if it's for a good cause. But rest assured, usually the birth list fills itself! Your loved ones will automatically ask if you have a birth list, and where they can add to it.
It's almost a tradition!
Besides, birth list sites always suggest sharing your list with your loved ones on Social Networks or by email. They can also directly go to the birth list site and enter your first-name-first-city to find your list.
Here you go, you have all the keys in hand to create your birth list and welcome your baby as it should be!
