is Walmart a bad place to have a baby shower registry?

I am putting together my registry for my baby shower next month. I have already done it for Target but I wanted to give people a choice of 2 places. With my dd I did 2 and saw most people only shopped from 2 of the 3 places.

Anyways, I was planning on doing target and BabysRus but dh told me that that would be too expensive for someone shopping (he wouldnt go there) and I should do Walmart and Target

I am only having 2 so what do you think, does dh make sense?

the reason I am even doing a registry this time is people are asking me and I have about 10 people out of state that are asking me too

I am registered at Walmart. But the problem is a lot you need to buy online with Walmart.

My problem is the bouncers I want, are only at Walmart I believe. I haven't researched.

But so are the cars eats and cribs that I want.

But my whole thing about registries are people are gonna shop where they want too.

I would do Walmart instead of Babies R us but depending on where you live at I would highly suggest Baby Depot at Burlington Coat Factory I find it to be very budget friendly like Walmart they even have 60 day layaway.

I do Babys R Us and Walmart. I love walmart so I don't think that Walmart is a bad place for a registry.

Go where your friends and family shop. Mine don't like Walmart so i wouldn't go there myself.

I don't think it is a bad idea. Most of the people I know who ever bought me gifts got them at walmart. I have had 4 baby showers and 2 bridal showers in my lifetime and almost no one even looked at the registry no matter where it was at though.

Yeah babies r us is way to expensive.

But I'll be going to get my heartbeat Doppler.

But like others have said, people will buy what they want. Like we aren't putting diapers or wipes, but mark my words ill end up getting them.

My sil, it nothing on her list except what we got her, and we got her one of those first aid kits that have the clippers and comb and etc in it. And came with a baby moniter with it.

People buy what they want.
