Expecting? Trying to figure out what the heck to register for? Check out these tools:
Lucie’s List and the Baby Bargains book (and forums) are both great at helping you figure out what you need and don’t need and providing the most cost-effective option. Check out Consumer Reports for quality ratings on most baby stuff. And if you’re up for crowdsourcing, WeeSpring is a great service for seeing what your friends recommend.
Don’t want to be stuck with just one store? Amazon has a universal registry (but it may be hard for grandma to navigate). There’s also babyli.st – a truly universal registry where you can ask for a doula and a breastpump in the same place.
Update: I forgot a UK website that I used quite extensively when searching for a stroller. http://www.which.co.uk/baby-and-child/ Very very helpful.
