It’s your fourth pregnancy! Congratulations!! You will NEED a new arsenal of baby essentials and a brand new baby registry. After all, most likely your hand-me-downs are threadbare, cloth diapers leaking and ragged, and baby thermometer batteries well beyond their prime.
**If you’re a first-time mom or looking for the ideal baby shower gifts, you’ll probably prefer these posts:
Mama, it’s time to make a fourth pregnancy baby registry! You deserve a baby shower and most likely you’ve got a like minded mama friend who agrees wholeheartedly and is more than eager to throw you, deserving mama that you are, that fantastic celebration. Here’s a look at some essentials to add to your fourth pregnancy baby registry including items from my actual running baby registry.
Unless you’re Martha Stewart in the washroom, your baby clothes are likely faded, stained, and worn out by now.
Tops and Bottoms
Add some essentials to your registry like these primary colored cotton onesies.
Get a set in every size and a few neutral bottoms and you’re set for daytime.
We all want baby to sleep loooong glorious peaceful nights. And he’ll need cozy cotton pajamas that’ll lull him right to sleep. I’m a big fan of zipper p.j.’s and newborn sleep gowns to keep diaper changes quick and easy during those first few months.
The velcro on swaddle blankets doesn’t last through more than two kids. If you swear by swaddling, like I do, add a few swaddle blankets in classic prints to your baby registry.
Crib Mattress Pad
“I love cleaning mattresses!” said no mother ever. Avoid midnight madness and mess by making sure your baby’s crib is fully protected by a quality mattress pad.
These may need refreshing by baby #4 too.
**Best buy: Crib sheets with built in mattress pad protection.
Whether you cloth diaper or choose disposables, every baby’s going to need an ample supply of diapers in varying sizes. Make sure to add these to your baby registry. Here are my favorite newborn cloth diapers as well as a few new brands I’ve added to my fourth baby registry.Green Mountain Cloth-eez Flat Diapers

Unless you’ve got indestructible toys or a nursery full of wooden classics, most likely your baby toy stash needs overhauled. Here are a couple of my absolute faves from Etsy artists that should do the trick (and last for at least one more generation too!)

Baby carriers eventually wear out. Even my very well-loved Ergo is on it’s last threads. That’s why I’ve included a brand new baby carrier on my fourth baby’s registry.
Fit walking and jogging moms know firsthand how much the daily wear and tear effects our stroller’s efficiency and ease of use. By baby #4, it’s probably time you get a new stroller.
If you’re a runner and have always hoped to involve baby, dream big and add that jogging stroller. You never know, one of your besties might be more than pleased to bless you with it.
If your current newborn and toddler seats are outdated or damaged, this one’s a no-brainer. Please check the expiration dates and be sure to add this essential to your baby registry. Mark it as an urgent need- it’s that important for baby’s safety.
If you’re like me, you donated or tossed your last diaper bag the minute baby potty trained. You’ll need a stylish and functional diaper bag like this one by Hip Cub.
Sure, these may not be a typical registry item, but if you plan to breastfeed your baby, we both know your old nursing bras are shot…and long gone. Try this top-selling (and one of my personal faves) the Body Silk Seamless Nursing Bra from Bravado.
Nothing beats cuddling a baby fresh from the tub. Bathe your baby in organic body wash before bedtime with this yummy smelling set from Zoe Organics.
Moms, what other items would you add for your (second, third, fourth…) baby’s registry? Please share in the comments below. I need to add it too! 😉
