Q: Baby Registry/Asking for needs/wants/gifts

We are having our 4th; we are not asking or in need of many items; but have been asked by some family and friends what our needs still are. We are not finding out the gender so purchasing clothes or gender specific items are difficult. We have a registry but since I am not being thrown or having a baby shower how do we go about sharing the registry without making it seem as though we are begging for items?

Word-of-mouth may be your best bet. If friends and family are asking what you need or want, just let them know where you're registered and they can take it from there. If they find someone else who wants to buy you something, they may pass that info along. If you'd like to make it seem even less like you're begging for items, just point out in the conversation that if you register at places, and people buy off the registry, you get a bonus (some places it's free items, others it's a discount), so with the new baby coming you've created a registry for yourselves - you'll put an item on the registry, buy it yourself, and then get the discount. This way, you can say you created the registry for yourself as a way to save money on necessities, but if your friends and family just happen to want to buy something from it... you won't stop them ;)
