Am I wrong to think people who attend baby showers should only buy things from the registry?

Am I wrong for feeling that if people don’t buy off of the registry for the baby shower that I made specifically of things my baby and I will NEED and guest choose to buy other things that we didn’t ask for, we should receive receipts so we can return the items we don’t need and get what we actually need and asked for in the first place? I want the bottles I asked for that will feed my baby daily. I don’t want those onesies you thought were so cute but may not be in my taste for what I feel comfortable with my child wearing. I want the crib mattress that I chose that my baby will sleep on every night (hopefully). I don’t want to sound ungrateful, but I personally feel that baby showers are to benefit the mother and father by saving them money in the long run, correct? But if no one is buying what the mother and father need off of the registry and then the mother and father have to go buy it themselves anyway, it defeats the purpose of the baby shower, to begin with. Am I wrong?

I think so. You are supposed to take what you get and appreciate it. Its the thought that counts.

I’m glad that people don’t always stick to the registry. I had people get me things I completely forgot to register for or didn’t even cross my mind to get.

Baby showers are not gift grabs. No one is obligated to buy your kid crap. They are bringing you a gift You are wrong

You’re being selfish. If people buy something for your baby you should be grateful they even got anything at all. After all, it’s not the guests responsibility to buy everything you need for your baby.

I agree that those types of gifts should come with reciepts but a baby shower is to celebrate the new life not buy you shit. That’s your responsibility since you made the baby.

Maybe “your taste” is expensive. You should buy the necessity items yourself… if you want something specific. Other wise, just be grateful anyone is buying you anything. Its YOUR baby YOUR responsibility… baby showers are a luxury.

If your baby needs things so badly from the registry get them your damn self

Well in reality they don’t have to buy anything :woman_shrugging: I would say it is ungrateful to expect anything especially only things you want.

Then buy your own child things he or she needs. You sound like a stuck up, spoiled brat.
