With number 3 on the way I knew I really wanted to experience all that this time though. There was so much we needed because we either had items made for twins, or what we had we got rid of things that had been used to hard, or things like car seats were now expired, etc.. So my first stop was the Sears website to create my registry.
It's very simple to head to the Gift Registry section of the Sears website, select the Baby Registry, click create and follow a simple 6 step process of filling out all your info and you are on your way!
The best part of course is adding all the items to your registry, here are a few of my must haves I put on my own registry..
- * Themed decor items like a lamp, we got the "Monkey'n'Around" Lamp
- * Bottles, Drying Racks and a Sterlizer
- * Bath tub, Wash cloths, Towels and shampoo/body wash
- * Monitors and Baby Gates
- One thing I wouldn't add a lot of is clothes. People will often just pick whatever outfits they want for you, whether you want them or not..haha..

To add products to your registry from Sears.ca, you simply browse the site and click the Add to Registry link below the Add to Card button. If needed it will ask you to log in to your registry and you're good to go! You can then view your registry or continue "shopping" to add more items to your registry.
This can also be done in store by using the helpful kiosk in The Baby's Room section, fill out the form and meet with a Sears representative who will give you a scanner so you can go through The Baby's Room and scan the UPC codes of the items you wish to add to your registry.
The registry can be updated any time in store or online. I found it nice to sit at home and browse my registry and Sears.ca to change some things around, update the quantity of items. Remember you are going to likely want more than one pack of wash clothes, towels, soothers, etc..
When completing the process online I received cards in the mail a few days later to insert into the baby shower invites so friends and family knew where to find my registry online and in store.
Sears Canada’s Baby Registry also has the unique “Waiting Game” contest. It’s an amazing opportunity to win the value of everything on your registry! Just create your registry as we described above, and then correctly guess your baby’s arrival date! The date can be changed up to two times, at least 60 days prior to the “guesstimated” original date. If the baby does indeed arrive on the guessed date, the winners will be awarded coupons equivalent to the net amount of items purchased off of the registry. The most recent winner won just over $3000 to spend back in the Baby’s Room!
