With the huge selection of baby products out there and new ones always coming out, it can be really overwhelming to get your registry just right for you and your little one on the way.
While there are tons of online registries available, having an in-store option that has a huge selection is really helpful – especially for first time moms!
Why Register With BuyBuy Baby?
Here are 5 reasons you should register with buybuy Baby, including a few other lesser known perks!
1. Huge in store selection
Seeing items out of the packaging can really make a big difference when you’re deciding between a few brands. They have Stokke, UppaBaby, 4Moms and other higher-end brands in stock to touch and feel too, so that was a major selling point for me.
My philosophy in picking baby gear is to choose once and to choose well. We currently live in a tiny space, so quality over quantity is really important to me. I want my baby gear to not only be functional and safe but also beautiful — a natural extension of my home and style.

During our recent trip to the store, I was shocked at just how many items they had on display. They seriously had everything I could think of. Getting to see the items in person really helped determine if we “needed” those items or not.
It is the perfect place to go and see all things BABY!
And they have a feeding/changing room available!
2. Knowledgeable & friendly staff
When you register in store, you begin the process with a registry specialist who greets you and makes you instantly feel comfortable. They take all of your information and spend a few minutes getting to know you and your expectations when it comes to building your personal registry.
It quickly became obvious that they truly care about helping to custom fit a registry to your specific needs. I loved this personal touch and felt confident that our registry specialist understood which items would suit our tiny-living situation best.
From there, you hit up each section in the store while the registry consultant helps guide you through the different departments providing important insights on choosing products and gear.
Something that sets buybuy Baby apart from other stores is their knowledgeable staff. They have specialists that are really well trained in their specific departments. This is extremely helpful when comparing brands.
In fact, not only is their staff knowledgeable about each of the items they carry, but they even know quite a bit about other items on the market as well.
New and expecting parents can be comforted by the fact that the specialists at buybuy Baby know their stuff!
3. Shop online or in-store
The perk of registering with buybuy Baby is that you can go in store, touch and feel what you need to, then you can head home and add the rest online!
While you can see many items in store, there’s an even larger selection online. On the off chance that you can’t find the item you want in-store, you’re sure to find it on their website.
This also allows your friends and family the same flexibility as they can shop for you in store and online. Plus, your friends will LOVE their cute gift wrapping services! It’s available for online services, and free in-store.
They have some great tools online that go above and beyond to help assure your registry has everything it needs, including:
- Quick Picks – Don’t know where to start? Choose from buybuy Baby’s expertly curated lists of products to get your registry started quickly and easily.
- Parent Faves – Sneak a peek at what other new moms love in Registry Favorites, which highlights the most popular items. This is especially useful for first-time moms!

4. Goody bag & coupons
When you register with buybuy Baby, they gift you tons of freebies & coupons! And who doesn’t love free stuff?!
Free Goody Bag
After you start your registry (whether online or in-store), make sure you pick up your free goody bag in store before you leave! It has tons of free samples & extra coupons, as well as a Welcome Booklet that walks you through each of the different departments. This is really helpful, especially if you don’t have time to complete your whole registry in store and want to add more online.
Completion Discount Coupon
There’s a good chance that you won’t receive every single item on your registry at your baby shower. Thankfully, buybuy Baby will send you a coupon to save 15% off of the remaining items on your registry!
The 15% off completion discount is good for one-time use in store and there are no exclusions on that coupon – this is HUGE when it comes to getting a good deal on brands that are typically restricted. In addition to the in-store coupon, you will also get a 15% off discount code to use on their website.
The completion coupons are good until 3 months past your due date. Make sure you take advantage of this awesome perk! These savings can really add up since you have so much to buy for a new baby.
When you refer a friend to register with buybuy Baby, you’ll receive a reward of $25 off a $100 in-store purchase.
Buybuy BABY is actually a sister store of Bed Bath & Beyond, and their coupons work there too as long as they’re not expired. #woopwoop
