BABY REGISTRY FAQ
What is the link to your registry?
Does the baby have a nickname, I need to know!
So glad you asked! We call him Cornichon.
I want to buy a book from the registry but I’d rather get it at my local bookstore, is that ok?
YES, just let us know so we can delete it from the registry and avoid duplicates.
What if the book is used?
Even better, just let us know so we can delete it from the registry and avoid duplicates.
Baby clothes make me feel gooey inside, why aren’t there more on the registry?
Most baby garments are not sustainably produced (in material or in labor) and considering the baby will outgrow them in 3.5 seconds we have opted for second hand shopping. Thredup.com has good options. Snaps down the front and at the legs are practical. Also we prefer the colors GREEN and YELLOW and we are excited about FOXES.
Why aren’t there quilts on your registry?
Because Gwenaëlle has been furiously making quilts during her entire pregnancy.
I had a toy/thing when I was a child that filled my life with joy and would like to buy it but it’s not on the registry, is that ok?
We try to avoid things made out of plastic (even if they are BPA free), synthetic fabrics and chemical dyes. NO PLASTIC PLEASE
Thanks for the registry, but I’ve got all these hand-me-downs I’d rather give you.
We love hand-me-downs.
I don’t believe capitalist consumer goods are a good gift for a baby.
We also like hugs, the sound of your voice in person or on the telephone, letters, funky postcards, handmade baby books, live or recorded lullabies, homemade food, hand-me-downs and good baby jokes
I like this thing on the registry but I am an artist and prefer to make things from scratch with my hands
Awesome. just let us know so we can delete it from the registry and avoid duplicates.
Diapers, thermometer, butt wipes… I was hoping for something more memorable or inspiring.
You are the memorable and inspiring part of the gift. In the the meantime we hope to provide a healthy, clean, fun environment for our newborn and are grateful for your help.
Is there anything you couldn’t find at a store?
YES! A Pussy Hat!
Your FAQ make you sound like fuddy duddy west coast liberal hipsters that grow veggies in your garden and spend week-ends protesting Trump.
