The Babylist Baby Registry app lets you register for all the things you need to
bring baby home. Add any baby gift from any store onto one easy-to-use universal
registry. Ask for help (like house cleaning), funds (like for diapers) and cash
favors, too. Manage and organize your registry,...
Love! Convenient and easy!
I just happened to stumble upon this app when I first started putting together my baby registry and I’m so glad I found it! I hate being tied down to just a few stores when it comes to registering as I like a lot of items from different places. Which is one of the things I love about this app. It lets you search from any store you want and add it to your registry. It’s the best! I also love this app because I am a big fan of having everything in one convenient spot. I don’t have to go between 2 registries and those looking at my registry don’t have to either (the app does allow you to link other registries, though. So you can still have everything in one spot, which is great). Overall I think this app is the best! I’m not picky when it comes to a lot of things, so just having an app that has allowed me to have everything in one place and add whatever I want from any store has been the greatest thing! Simple to use and convenient! Would definitely recommend!
Great for parents not for your guests
It’s easy and great to use but a lot of my guests had issues using it such as wanting to purchase multiple items and having to complete 3 different check outs. Also when buying multiple items from the same store the cart would empty when they would add the item from each of the pop ups Babylist pulls up when an item is selected. I’m starting to end up with texts and calls asking if they can just send money or give a gift card because they wanted to get a few items but thought that Babylist wasn’t easy for them to use in the sense that it kept redirecting them and they just had to check out like 6 different times which I could COMPLETELY understand as being annoying. I really liked this app and was hoping that it would be a great way to consolidate my gift registry but now I feel bad and a little bummed that this being my first baby and people can’t get the items I want so we’re just getting money and gift cards to these places. Or just items that we didn’t ask for because it was easier to buy than to use the registry. Should’ve rethought this from the gift givers perspective before using it. :(
I would have liked for there to be away for my family and friends to be able to purchase all the items with one checkout but can understand how that’s not possible right now. But think it would be really cool in the future for them to be able to find a way to link that somehow. Also I might have to write up a little slip explaining how to use this registry the best and most efficient way and add it to my invites. Such as telling them they can shop for these items in store if desired but just to make sure to mark it as purchased on the registry. On the positive side this registry is wonderful! I have always been one to love all the little “mom” shops for lactation bars and natural lactation supplements along with all the cute baby boutiques.😍 Now instead of thinking I’ll have to purchase them to get them I have a registry I can add all those great mommy things and adorable items from as many stores as I desire! All in one place. Definitely worth it. I have one other registry for other items needed and have made this registry a compilation of pricier fun things along with needed items. I’ve really enjoyed the experience.
Best Baby Registry Out There
I’m not sure why anyone would use any other baby registry other than Babylist. Aside from being pretty awesome its so convenient. I love that you can add to the registry from pretty much any store, shop, boutique or website. This is particular great for me because I tend not to like a lot of the baby stuff that’s out there at all the major department stores. I also don’t believe that pink and blue should be my only options for color. You can add everything you need to Babylist and it’ll list all the stores it’s available at along with its pricing. So you and your family and friends can choose where you’d like to purchase from. Aside from that there are other things you can add to the registry like a diaper fund, daycare fund & you can even put on your registry that you’ll accept hand me downs.
I have mixed feelings about this one...
I love the fact that I can do everything on one list, keep it organized and people can compare prices easily. The problem I found after having a baby shower, is that a lot of people did not use the Registry because it seemed online only, the only way they would know they could buy stuff in store is by actually viewing my Registry and me putting a note at the top that they could buy certain items at target, etc. So I ended up with a lot of things I did not need, or did not want just because this is my third child and I already know what works, and what does not. Not only that, I ended up with some double items as well, and some people reserved items on my list but I never got them. So now I don't know if I should remove the reservation or not. Had I to do it over again I probably would just register at a couple different big stores and deal with two registries.
Wish there was extra features
I love the idea of not having to choose one specific place to register, so this is such a great idea. I haven’t gotten a ton of feedback from family or friends so I’m assuming they’re liking it, but there have been a few older family members a tad confused on navigating it. I like being able to see what’s been reserved and bought and by who, but I made the mistake of telling one person that that information is available to me and they weren’t happy with that. Needless to say I’ll be acting surprised at our shower with the other guests. I REALLY wish there was a notes spot at the top to leave any information that would be good for guests to know. I also wish there was a way to indicate items that are more important for us to get. I ended up asterisk-ing items and putting them in “general” so they’d be at the top, hoping people would get it.
Easy, Super Convenient App for Baby Registry!
I absolutely loved this app for my baby registry! It was super easy and convenient to add items from any store to one registry for friends and family. I loved seeing the items people bought along the way, it was super tempting to see who purchased items on your registry because it will show you in “more details” however that’s great for AFTER when you need to send thank you cards- it reminds you of who got you specific gifts. It’s easy to share your registry with friends and family via direct link directly to your registry or BabyList will send you FREE registry cards for you to pass out or add to your baby shower invitation. I would highly recommend this app to anyone looking to make it easier for friends & family to purchase items for you!
Easy to use and a little too addicting
This app is amazing! You can add stores that are not mainstream to really create something more about your families specific needs, wants, and personalities. I recently used it to get my friend’s gifts for her baby shower. You can reserve the gift online before buying it and then go back later to type in the number. If you somehow forget the items number, they have an option for that too! Absolutely no stress! I loved seeing that I could purchase her headbands from a special Business that she would have otherwise not have been able to put into any other baby registry. Again, allows you to really personalize it and add even special wants such as a fund for a doula, babysitting, dog walking, etc. Great and addicting app!
Everything in one place!
I’m due Aug2019 with my second (1st kiddo is 11 y.o., though, so it’s been awhile), and this app is awesome! It’s super user-friendly and I can add any item from any website to my registry, which I love! It’s so easy to add and delete items as you wish, and I love the price comparison of the same item across sites so that buyers can get the best deal! Everything is categorized, and as people begin to purchase items, you can select to see what’s still available. I also use it as kind of a “wish list”, because I don’t actually expect that everything listed will be purchased, but it’s a great place to store all the cute things I’ll want to have for the baby. Highly recommend!
TERRIBLE customer service
The app itself is pretty nice and easy. However DO NOT order from there website!! It is the absolute worst customer service I have ever received! I ordered a high chair and it took weeks to get it. They never sent me a confirmation email so I assumed the package was not sent and I ordered from another website. I emailed the company to cancel the order and they sent me a cancel email back, than emailed me again and said it was still being sent. They didn’t apologize ONCE for messing up!!!!!! They could of said sorry instead they said it will take 3-5 days to mail it back to them than 3-5 days for them to process AND 10 days for the refund to go to the card. That’s 20 business days for anyone counting. The worst part I emailed them back about it (her name was Heather Bond FYI) and they (she) ignored everything I said! I have a credit there and I do NOT even want to use it because of how terrible they reacted to the entire situation!!!!!
Everything about this app is genius! I'm in my seventh month and I haven't set foot in a Buy Buy Baby store or any other crazy huge store that's all about baby stuff. I relied on Babylist because it provides you with a lot of information on what you will need, may need, don't really need, price ranges, etc. Of course I was overwhelmed at first with the number of products there are out there but once I stuck to a certain brand, everything was easy. So glad Babylist was advertised on my Pinterest board because I love how you can add anything from any website! I've told friends about this and majority have never heard of Babylist and now they're using it for their registries! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
My list is not available to the public yet but I read some of the reviews about the multiple checkouts and instead made my categories by store rather than product type! That way guests can shop by a preferred store and keep their purchases in one place if they wish. I also use the “description” section to list the color or specific product or to mention that the product is also listed under another store or if coupons are available. This is even great for those planning to become pregnant that want to keep track of products they are learning about.
Second time user
I used this website with my first baby and it made it so easy. I’m not sure if they had the app then, but this pregnancy they (obviously) do and I love it! It did easy for my to go in and add things and check in my registries. All stores sell different items and different brands, so it’s so hard to register at only one location. This makes it way easier on me and anyone that wants to buy us a gift! I especially love being able to write little notes and reminders to people on the site as well. So far, haven’t heard of anyone having issues navigating! This is so great. I recommend it to everyone!
This app has made my baby registry life sooo much easier. This is my first child and I had no clue where to start or what to do, until I found this app :)) you can add any other registry’s you’ve already started to this one. Once you register your account in the app, Baby list will send you a SUPER helpful Magazine/guide in the mail! You can shop in the app on the Baby list store or any other story and easily add it to registry. It will also help you organize everything into categories (nursery, diapering, clothes, bath time, etc.) I highly highly recommend this app! It will help you out tremendously <3 ENJOY!!!
Reserved but not purchased
Using this as a registry was exciting and fun because you have every store & every item at your fingertips to add to your list versus having multiple registries....So I just had my baby shower- here is the MAJOR downfall- people can “reserve” items without purchasing them and never “release” them. In the end I had major items that had been “reserved” and not available for anyone else to purchase, and now I don’t have them because that person never actually bought it. Frustrating bc people then went off my registry to get items and now I have to return them to get what I really needed. I feel that items should only be “reserved” for a 24 hour period before they are released. Just my opinion :)

Babylist had a changing pad that was out of stock. I found it at Target and had it shipped to the expectant mom. Then I went back to Babylist to mark it as "purchased" and entered my order # from Target. Now Babylist is showing the item as "Reserved." Why? It should be showing up as Purchased.
I found the website to be very aggravating. I will recommend my daughters NOT to use Babylist. There are too many software issues that need to be ironed out.

Very disappointed with the delivery of my order to the recipient. During the order process when I was routed to the 3rd party app, I was not warned that the item would go through my account, and thus be delivered to my address. When I tried to call customer service to recoup the funds I had to pay out of pocket to have the items re-shipped to the recipient I was told there was nothing they could do. They indicated I needed to go after the supplier. However, I ordered an additional item, which went through a different 3rd party app, and the recipient received the item. Customer service was not helpful, and when I tried to reach the CEO, well, 2+ weeks later, no response.

I regret using babylist 100%. They always are pushing your friends and family to buy through them. My friend purchased a highchair and since they did not have the right color instock they mailed me the wrong one. When I tried to return they would not refund my friend so I could buy it literally anywhere else. Now a year later I still have a credit with nothing to buy. They are truly terrible and to new moms as well.

I had created a registry and it is no longer there I am extremely upset

Babylists internal check out system gives you an error message if you have items from an outside vendor saved for later. After completing the payment section it tells you your order isn’t finished yet and gives a link to purchase you other vendor items. Then the website crashes. At this point it placed my order but I never received confirmation numbers or emails. This happened three times before I contacted their client support. Found out I had been triple billed and canceled all the orders. I redid my shopping on Amazon.

Baby List has no live customer support for those purchasing from the registry. The site takes you to many different online vendors, from Amazon to Target to Home Depot. Home Depot wouldn't ship one of my items--store pickup only. When I was taken to the Amazon site, it automatically populated the ship to address as mine, not the gift recipient's. When I figured out the mistake, I went back to Amazon and My Orders, and the order was not listed. Arghhh! An online "chat" with Baby List suggested I phone Amazon with the order number. Overall, a horrible experience. I cancelled all my Baby List orders.

I hated using the Babylist Registry. After buying gifts for an upcoming baby shower (which took frustratingly long) I spent just as much time searching for where I could leave a review. Sounds like the registry is good for future parents but not for those who want to buy them gifts.
What I didn’t like:
1. Babylist boasts that it offers price comparisons for everything on the list. I’m guessing this is only applicable if an item is available at multiple stores as very few items on the list had corresponding prices. I was clicking blindly and opening new windows looking items up to even see how much they cost and if they were in budget.
2. Couldn’t sort by price, (couldn’t even see the prices) could only sort by under 50, 50-100, and 100plus. Still ticked off about not being able to see the prices.
3. Lots of items were reserved however I can see where the registry would loose users because it’s so tedious, and imagine that many reserved items ended up unpurchased and reserved forever.
4. When you select an item, depending on the store it would show delivery options. The recipients zip code seemed to come up, but on checkout you had to fill in all the address details. Feel like touting an online baby registry in one place should at least show the address or auto fill the address. I dropped off here because I didn’t have it on me.
5. Super tedious process that went something like: scroll through list with no prices, click onto individual items (opens in the same window instead of new window) to check prices, realise the list window is gone, hit back to get back to list, if you see something you like and want to buy you go back to the list to hit “reserve,” again open the item to buy, go back to the list to continue shopping, etc. I ended up just opening every single item in new tabs and having 100 windows open. When you purchase, even if you are buying from the same store you’re opening in separate baskets, so I added all the target items in separate windows and the refreshed the page to get one checkout. Let’s just say that there’s no way my mom could have figured this out on her own. THEN you have to go in and mark your items from reserved to purchased.
6. Changing items from reserved to purchased is a pain and i almost didn’t do it. If you buy 4 items you have to input your details, the order number, the store (shouldn’t this be auto?), who the gift is from, and a gift message, FOUR SEPARATE TIMES. Even if you have bought all four items from the same store.
All in all a super frustrating experience, would not recommend, and it made me want to rip my hair out. I hope the recipient enjoys the gifts and doesn’t just end up with a list full of reserved and Unpurchased items. I couldn’t see a location to view all the purchased items either to make a judgement call on whether she had received all clothing items and no diapers for example, just endless reserves. Maybe no one completed the process because it was so annoying.
Anyway, if I am ever sent a link to babylist again I’m going to immediately purchase a gift card instead. Horrible user experience. But it doesn’t really matter if the user experience for parents is great, because they will keep using it (unless they get frustrated by the reservation process, but by then it will be too late.) Babylist has a lot of work to do.
