You may be asking why should I set up a baby registry? Do I even need one?” It’s true that baby registries aren't a common practice in all parts of the world. Some cultures prefer to give baby gifts before the little one arrives, so the parents are prepared for their arrival. In other cultures, gifts are offered after the baby is born, and sometimes even when the baby reaches the 100-day milestone. So, if you feel a bit hesitant about assuming that people will shower you with gifts, that's completely okay. But having a baby registry will be super helpful, regardless of cultural norms to help you organize and receive items you’ll actually use and enjoy.
