I had been looking for a means to create an independant baby registry. I was specifically interested in advertising my need for family/friends to "sponsor" weeks of the cloth diaper delivery service I'll be utilizing for the first couple months.
You guys should definitely check out Babyli.st !!! I found it really easy to use - almost too easy to use and I'm SO glad I can compile needs and wants from Target/Etsy/Amazon in one place!
I discovered this via another fave website - offbeat mama which some of you may want to check out. I especially love some of their homebirth stories (and photos of other pregnant ladies with tattoos!) which you can find via the archives.
