OK. well. first off- on your registry you should put anything and everything you think that you will want or need. If you don't get everything, they usually give you a discount coupon for whatvever is left so you can use it towards that. i would put all the these on there----
Bottle accessories (brushes, warmer, replacement nipples, etc).
burpclothes (use the cloth diapers, they are cheaper and absorb better!)
diapers (shoot for size one- NB you will fly through!)
(no need for a bassinet it's a giant waste of money- they will outgrow one it WEEKS)
soother for the crib
saftey items for the home
bath soap, shampoo (lavender smells soooo good)
baby bath tub
pack and play
pack and play sheets
other health items
baby ear swabs
nice warm fuzzy blankets
any cute toys you see from rattles to older baby toys
play mat with the hanging things
carseat (unless you get a travel system)
high chair of some sort
baby-safe cleaners and disinfectant
baby safe laundry detergent. Dreft is popular but expensive. look for anything dye and scent free and you will be fine.
baby gates if you need them
any other furniture you need for the nursery
only SOME clothes. make sure you request gift receipts. people tend to give small little clothes and not bigger cothes. you arent going to need a lot of NB or even 0-3 month stuff, only a handful of sleepers, onsies, little outfits, hats, socks, and spares.
any older things you will eventually need like sippy cups or spoons
if you want to try to pump
breast pump ( i loved the double electric lansinoh. worked awesomely for me)
strorage freezer bags
as far formula goes, i suggest similac. we started with advance, but then went to sensitive. they give you coupons fir 5 bucks all the time. although i do admit when she got older we DID switch to Parents choice from walmart. same exact ingredients and i wish i did it sooner. because its half the price.
edit- just a word of advice, if you plan on asking formula questions on this board you will be attacked by holier-than-thou breastfeeding advocates. I learned that one the hard way. You're right, just ignore them don't defend yourself or choice.
