Pare down the basics
A common mistake many moms make is registering for way too many of the basic baby items.
"For some reason, people overbuy the necessities they don't need," says Glasson. "You don't really need 12 bottles, you can get by with six bottles. You don't need 15 onesies. Cut down on the amount of basics and instead leave room on your registry for special items that will make you smile every time you enter the nursery."
