So I’ve been through two kids and two baby registries.  I still remember that overwhelming feeling when I entered Babies R Us the first time I went to register.  I was 20 weeks pregnant with Nate and had literally just found out he was a boy at our ultrasound.  Hubby had no interest in registering so my friend Susan (who was pregnant with #3 at the time) agreed to meet me to help me figure out what to register for.

We had made it about halfway around the store in something like two hours when I called it quits and said I’d have to return to do the rest the next day.  My head was spinning with information she was giving me about car seats, bottles, bottle warmers, bouncy seats and other random baby products I had never considered that I would need.

One of the things I registered for with both of my kids was a Britax car seat.  Both of my boys rode in Britax Marathons.  I registered for one for Nate the first time because Susan told me it was the top ranked car seat at the time.  I didn’t need to hear anything beyond that.
