How do you do your baby showers?

My DF and I registered at Babies-R-Us and are going to register and Burlington Coat Factory. When my MIL found she went crazy. She was saying how when you have a baby you don't make a list you tell each person you know what they have to buy you. I was raised with a family who registers and makes list and lets everyone pick whatever they want to buy from the list. I thought that was the only way to but apparently there are other ways. So... how do you plan your baby showers?

  • I've never heard of "telling each person what they have to buy you." People have used registries for decades. Ya'll are doing fine.

  • Register and the shower hostesses put on the invites where I registered, or if people ask then I tell them.

  • I register.. So that I can have a list of things that I need and then most places offer a discount after your due date. Well, at elates Babiesrus did for us, but that ws 3 yrs ago

  • It is rude to tell people what they are supposed to purchase for you! A registery is fine.
