Congratulations! You've made it past the dreaded first trimester and now you're (hopefully) smooth sailing into the second trimester. This is the time that most pregnant women feel their best, so why wait to start shopping? Now is the time to start researching, registering, and buying all of your big baby items.
During my pregnancy with my son, Beckham, my husband and I lived in a small town in the middle of nowhere. The nearest store to us where we could create a decent baby registry was a 30-minute drive from our house. Our only other option was creating an online registry, but we weren't able to physically look at and touch any of the products, so we decided on the department store route. I remember waddling down the aisles aimlessly searching for the perfect breast pump, baby bottles
, etc. I did some research, yes; but we had absolutely no idea what we were doing. So, after staring at a stroller display for 25 minutes, we finally pointed the registry gun at a giant stroller box and said, "Eh, this one looks good. It's gender neutral. It comes with a cup holder." And that is how we made many decisions regarding our baby registry.
The Baby Cubby
owners, Cameron and Jacquelyn Muir, never want our parents to feel like they are purchasing blindly like I did when I was creating my baby registry. They understand that thinking of everything you need for your sweet bundle of joy can be taxing, which is why they are so focused on creating a space that is helpful for parents! Whether you have no littles, or five, there is a space for them to sit and play while you make those hard decisions. If your pregnant self gets tired, there are multiple rockers for you to relax in (and feeding the baby is welcomed!)
Cameron and Jacquelyn also work hard to hire Cubby Moms with loads of experience. Once hired, they take over 100 knowledge and practical tests on every product. This means that whether you visit us in store, online, or via phone, you'll get all your questions answered. We read nearly every review on every baby product under the sun, and that's why we guarantee every product we sell in our store is safe and tested. Plus, we have associates available to walk through the store and assist you while you are creating your registry.
If you don't have time to drop by the store, that's okay! We have compiled in-depth resource guides for our moms and dads that provide great insight to buying the perfect stroller, car seat, diaper bag, jogging stroller and breast pump!
Buying for baby can put a huge dent in your wallet. Especially if you are like me--no siblings and no hand-me-downs. This factor alone (and maybe some pregnancy hormones) made my shopping experience a tad stressful. We wanted good products that were affordable. Our budget was extremely tight and we understood that the items we registered for needed to be affordable if our family and friends would like to purchase something for the baby. I wish I had known about The Baby Cubby then! Something that you won't find at any other store is The Baby Cubby's offer to price match the best, most affordable prices out there! If you find the stroller of your dreams on Amazon, they will price match it! If you are drooling over the perfect Petunia Pickle Bottom
bag, they have it and they will price match it!
We hope the rest of your second trimester is a happy and healthy time for you and baby! There is nothing better than feeling your sweet baby grow and wiggle. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the store or swing by for a visit! We would love to hear from you and assist you during this wonderful time!
