Comparing Baby Registries: Find the best baby regsitry

There are so many choices for baby registries! Between your favorite stores and the dedicated baby registry websites, how are new parents to choose which registry is the best?! Comparing baby registries side-by-side is the easiest way to find out which baby registry is right for you.

Many of the baby registries have different features; some offer a "free" baby box or welcome box, others offer a "completion discount", free shipping, or even a "concierge service". So many choices!

Hopefully this chart will help you compare the features of many of the top baby registries.

So, instead of getting a bunch of boxes of different diapers for the expecting mother to try (and inevitably waste) I found this! GENIUS!"

The Natural Choice for New Babies Diaper Sampler Package is a great gift for new parents to try a variety of eco-friendly diapers. Add one to your baby registry! (hint: find your registry on the list to see step-by-step instructions to add an item from ANY website to your existing baby registry)
