The best things come in tiny little packages with 10 fingers and 10 toes! It just so happens that with your tiny bundle of joy comes the need for a few (okay, maybe more than a few) essential items to help make life a little easier. While the prospect of registering and picking out all the items that are going to suit your growing family can be very exciting, we know that it can also be a little daunting at times.
But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We teamed up with our BMTB (Best-Mom-To-Be), Love It or List It Vancouver’s Jillian Harris to create a registry that will leave you excited and confident that your registry is full of favourite baby essentials, guaranteed to making parenting a little bit easier to save you more time for baby love.

Packed with safety features from base installation to seat design, Peg Perego has outdone themselves in their goal of keeping your precious cargo safe while on the move.
Stroller: Bugaboo Buffalo
Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam…Go where no stroller has ever gone before with this all-terrain performance stroller. Bigger wheels, bigger basket, bigger seat; from infancy to toddler, the Buffalo offers multiple options to keep your babe riding comfortably.

Baby Chair: 4Moms MamaRoo
We all know of the typical “bounce & sway” motion, used commonly to keep baby happy (or asleep). 4Mom’s MamaRoo has you covered and gives you a break! This sleek, moving chair keeps baby comfortable and content with its five calming motions and sounds. The best part? When baby gets fussy, simply change the speed and motion conveniently from your phone or tablet with the 4Moms mobile app!
Nasal Aspirator: Fridababy Nosefrida
The common cold is a friend to no one, and is especially heart wrenching to watching little noses battle colds and congestion. Fridababy “nose” what they were doing when they brought us the NoseFrida Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator. Electric aspirators can be scary for little noses but the NoseFrida lets you do the sucking, controlling the amount of suction applied without having to put anything inside their nose. We know is sounds gross, but trust us when we say it is 100% hygienic with its included filters and that it works!
Carrier: Lillebaby – All Seasons
The adventure does not need to stop when baby comes along, so go ahead, take the road less traveled – and don’t worry about having to bring a stroller along.

Try it out, you’ll love it.
