When you had a baby shower and made a registry, did people buy off of it?

...or did they just get whatever they wanted? Either way I'll be happy to get gifts! lol

  • I never had a baby shower for either of my boys I did make a baby registry just to give people an idea as to what we needed but my oldest was only 2 pounds 2 ounces when he was born so we ended up having to buy everything in preemie for him as it was

  • Some of both...the cool thing when you're a first time mom though is some of the stuff veteran moms get you that you don't even know you need! :)

  • A little from both. Sometimes I dont shop off the registry, I sometimes just use it to get an idea of what is needed

  • most everyone shopped off my registry, but no one gave the registry to the person at the register and had then scan the items off of it- so I had LOTS of duplicates.

  • I receive several gifts from the registry, but a lot of people bought outfits and diapers. I didn't care, it was sweet of them to get something for my little guy.

  • Nope. I didn't receive one single item off my registry for my second child. I think I received maybe 3 gifts total.

  • Nope. No one bought anything off my registry. It was fun pretending like I was going to get the stuff tho! I kinda figured I wouldnt get what I really wanted.
