What’s On Kim Kardashian’s Baby Registry? (Plus, Things We Think She Should Add)
Are you dying to know what Kim Kardashian has on her baby registry? Probably not, but here’s some intel about it anyway—plus a few additions from us.
Because of course you must be DYING to know what Kim Kardashian has on her baby registry (note the dripping sarcasm), here’s a little tidbit for you: According to People, Kim stopped in at high-end baby boutique Bel Bambini last week to register her and Kanye’s impending little one and do a little preliminary shopping. Khloe and Kourtney came along while Kim scoped out things like a Stokke Sleepi crib and baby clothes—LOTS of baby clothes—from Baby Dior, Fendi, Chloe, and Roberto Cavalli (said an onlooker, “[She] mainly [looked] at simple clothing, nothing too girl”).
I’ll confess that I’ve never understood the point of designer baby clothes. First off, babies are messy—if they’re going to throw up on everything, it’s probably better that they be wearing something that can withstand the mess—and second off, they grow SO. FAST. That adorable little Baby Dior onesie you just bought for your two-month-old? She’ll be too big for it by the time she’s three months. Just sayin’.
Admittedly Kim has more than enough disposable income to… well, maybe not justify, but at least be able to afford super expensive baby clothes. But it still seems a little bit wasteful when you know that you’re probably going to be revamping your kids entire wardrobe every couple of months. I would, at least, understand wanting to get a high-end crib or stroller or whatever; these kinds of items tend to be useful for a significant amount of time and often have ways to “grow” along with your baby (like the Stokke Sleepi crib, for example).
Speaking of messes, a large part of me wonders if Kim is, in fact, prepared for how messy babies can be. As such, I’ve come up with a few other things she might want to add to her “I’m Having a Baby!” shopping list:
– A tarp. This 20-by-30-foot blue number should do the trick, although she might want to invest in a few of them so she can cover all that square footage in her brand new baby mansion. You never know—the baby could be a champion projectile vomiter.
– A waterproof poncho. No, Kim, I do not mean this absurdly expensive cashmere poncho. I mean a rain poncho, which you will probably want to don whenever you bathe, change, or feed your baby. No, they are not stylish, but hey, at least you can color-coordinate them with your tarp!
– A diaper pail. We’re not totally sure Kim realizes that babies poop. Those dirty diapers are going to have to go somewhere, and at least this disposal unit is probably snazzy enough for Kim’s chi-chi tastes.
– Air freshener. Because the idea of Kim freaking out about how smelly babies are is a priceless mental image. Make sure it’s safe for baby!
Tell us: What else should Kim add to her baby shopping list?
