When is a good time to create a baby registry?

And when would you tell people about it? I'm not really planning on having a baby shower, since this is the second time around, but I want people to know what we need.. and to give gift ideas if they're thinking about it? I'm 17 weeks, is that too early?

  • Then, if you're not having a shower, I'd just tell people as they ask.

  • I started mine already and I am just 13 weeks and we haven't told anyone yet either. I will update it when we know the gender but at least I have it started while everything is fresh in my mind that we need or could use. I won't be having another baby shower either but I have family and friends that will still want to know what to get and it is easier to have a registry to they can pick something in their price range.
