Building a registry can be exhausting. And, if you’re a first-time mom, it can be downright overwhelming. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a seasoned mom at this point, or because of my complete and utter obsession with all things baby, but I am often called upon by family and friends for help with this monumental task. At the very least, I often get texts saying “Where should I start and where can I find adorable and unique items for Baby?” Usually, that answer has to come in two separate spaces… until now. Introducing a new store that has become a one-stop-shop for adorable, unique, registry must-haves: The Baby Cubby.
The Baby Cubby is a fairly new online retailer for all things baby — from strollers to mobiles to bath toys, The Baby Cubby has you covered. I recently got a chance to online shop my little heart out and I was not disappointed. Their selection was large and varied from big names like Tea Collection and 4moms to smaller names like Oemi and Tubby Todd, with free shipping over $49.
However, after learning about their brick and mortar store in Utah’s Provo-Orem area, I might just have to make my first trip out to Utah and skip shipping all together! In-store purchases are offered perks like drive-up ordering, 10-minute massages with minimum purchase, a play area for kids, and they even offer iPads you can use to research prices for price matching (they even price-match with Amazon!), ensuring you’re getting the lowest price possible. Why am I not on a plane yet??
What also sets The Baby Cubby apart is that they strive to be more than just another baby gear store. They work hard to not only bring parents the best gear available today (and, with the research to hunt it down behind each item!), but they’re also passionate about engaging their customers into a community they can trust and rely on… for baby gear and beyond.
Every nursery sees tons of poop — it’s a fact of life — so why not have a stylish and functional diaper pail? My choice for must have diaper pail (and I’ve had a few) is the Ubbi. Easy to load, easy to clean, easy to lock, but the best part is that your favorite 10-gallon trash bags will work perfectly with this diaper pail — no need to buy specific refill bags. (Money saver!) The Baby Cubby carries the powder-coated steel Ubbi diaper pail in three of the most popular colors, perfect to accent any nursery. (Ubbi Diaper Pail, $80)
A nursery is more than just a place for Bay to sleep and be changed. It can also be beautiful and unique, just like you and your baby. Adding a special few touches here and there can make all the difference. Wall decals are an inexpensive and easy way to add art to the room without the cost of framing. The Baby Cubby has so many different wall decals, it’s difficult to choose just one… or since they are only $20 a pop, go for more than one! Each wall decal is printed on fabric and comes with a bio about the individual artist. I picked this one not only because it matched my nursery, but it’s also one of my favorite verses. So sweet. (Fabric Wall Decal, $20)
Just because your diaper bag is filled with crumbs and Butt Paste doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful on the outside! My pick for the registry must-have for moms is this beautiful mini tote by Petunia Pickle Bottom, a name that is well-known in the baby world for having high-quality, gorgeous bags with pockets galore and a wipes case. Although this bag does come in a larger version, the mini size just feels right — big enough to carry the essentials without being obnoxious. And the pattern. OMG the pattern. It’s beautiful for year-round carrying. In fact, I carry this bag even when I’m not with the kids and have had more than a few young and obviously non-child-having ladies just fawn over my bag — you should see their faces when I tell them it’s a diaper bag. The Petunia Pickle Bottom Mini Tote comes in several patterns to suit your fancy, or go for the full-size tote, The Baby Cubby has them both. (Petunia Pickle Bottom Mini Tote, $120)
If there’s one thing a baby needs its cozy, comfy pajamas and I have yet to find anything cozier or comfier than Kickee Pants. Lucky for us, The Baby Cubby carries a huge amount of Kickee Pants footies and blankets. Kickee Pants are made from 95 percent viscose bamboo and five percent spandex, making them stretchy and oh so soft. My favorite thing about Kickee Pants, aside from the fact that have no shame in saying I want to wear them myself, is the sweet little patterns and details like tush flaps, ruffles, and attached mittens. (Kickee Pants Footies, $32)
The one thing to remember when doing your registry is to not only register for things you need now, but for items you will need in the future, as well. Yes, while your infant might not do much besides sleep and be cute when she’s born, one day, she will be splashing and playing with the best of them, and that’s when bath accessories like the Skip Hop Bath Spout Cover and the Skip Hop Light Up Surfers Bath Toy will come in handy. The bath spout cover keeps little heads safe when they inevitably knock into the spout, while still giving access to the shower diverter. The Light Up Surfers magically light up in the warm water keeping Baby entertained all bath long. (Skip Hop Bath Spout Cover, $13, Skip Hop Light Up Surfers Bath Toy, $10)
All this and so much more can be found on The Baby Cubby online store, or if you’re lucky enough to be in the Utah area, you will find The Baby Cubby store in Lindon.
