Baby registries kinda suck

Pregnant with my third and final child (was unexpected) and my family is very small my support system is so small and a close friend told me to make a registry, because even with working (part time rn due to some issues) and my “side gigs” baby stuff is so expensive. I’m so happy a few people I knew got some things to help, it felt so nice and I have so much appreciation for it. But I’m sitting here, due in less than 3 months, and I’m still missing so much. Aside from clothes and a couple bigger items. And unfortunately, is just me right now.I wish I had more support and wish my pos car didn’t take a lot of my savings from me. Just wanted to vent I guess :/ feels so lonely right now

When mine was a baby I really found that a lot of the "stuff" people think they need for a baby isn't really a "must" have. I didn't ever have a baby monitor. I think "essentials" for me was a pack-n-play, a couple bottles, diapers, a pack of onesies and a car seat. I don't remember needing more than that.

@Starcrossed it’s not my first kid. But things I do need I don’t have. And certain things I will not get “used”

What kind of stuff are you missing?

@itsok ihave a bit of clothes a few bottles, two (gifted) boxes of diapers a changing table and I’m supposed to get a free bassinet and car seat off a friend. Bht missing legitimate everything else a baby needs.i made a registry in hopes the necessities would get bought but the few who got in it only got clothes. I got promised a gift card 4 months ago to use on it but never got it. And I’m 6months pregnant rn and tend to have kids early so it’s scary rn
