Baby registry

So im 25 weeks today, and my mom is planning a baby shower for me at the end of june/beginning of july. Its kinda early (im due aug 31st) but i live in florida and my whole family lives in Michigan so id have to fly home and i dont really want to fly too late in my pregnancy. Anyways im going to be using amazon for my registry just because i need all the gifts shipped to my house in florida. Has anyone else ever dealt with a situation like this? Should i make a statement telling people that i need it shipped and not to actually bring anything cause i mean my mom said she would mail stuff that people do end up bringing but it could get expensive depending on gifts i get. Also im a FTM so what are some absolute must haves that you ladies put on your registry??? I basically have nothing and im starting to get stressed out lol so i at least wanna get started on that.

I did my registry on Amazon and even those that have never used it before were able to figure it out. I would suggest turning off the "contribute" option that's the only thing that confused them.

I would include that on the invitation. Though keep in mind that people will often not even bother to shop off of your registry and will gift you whatever they want. That happened to me big time at my baby shower and I had to exchange and return a lot of things I either didn't want or already had.

-Bath items: baby bath, body wash, bath toys, towel, washcloths -Dr. Brown’s bottles are the best -Swaddles that zip up - i found that old fashioned ones didn’t stay put with the baby’s wiggling -Teething toys, the banana toothbrush was my son’s favorite -Diapers! Ask people to give all sizes but be careful of getting really big boxes because baby might outgrow the diapers before you get through a box -Meal delivery subscriptions so you don’t have to cook as much -Boppy pillow if you’ll be nursing

I asked people to bring a book instead of a card:) I made up some rhyme about putting a note in the book so our son can read it when he’s older!
