6 Online Baby Registries Every Mom-to-Be Needs to Know About

For some moms-to-be, there's something just slightly uncomfortable about specifying a "wish list" for friends and family to gift you and your new baby with. People expect it, though, and if you're having a shower, it's almost necessary to create a registry to ensure that you don't end up with a stack of identical baby blankets or frilly, feminine nursery decor for what you were envisioning as an ultramodern baby room.

The trick is to look at creating a registry as doing your loved ones a favor. They're not required to abide by it, but if they want to give you something special, and need some guidance, it's there. Alternative registries have become increasingly popular over the past few years, and the best thing about them is that they offer a wider breadth of options than heading to a single store. Here, six unexpected registry spots that we think are worth a click through — including one that's geared specifically toward Pinterest addicts (you know who you are!).
