    When I was a new Mom, one of the best, and unusual, gifts I got was diaper service. It was great! Regular, old fashioned, cotton diapers at your doorstep, that you don't have to wash. And, better for the baby.

    Also, you can use the diapers for miscellaneous cleanups.

    You can't get them from Target, though. You have to arrange it with a local diaper service. You just buy a gift card for the desired length of time.

    **Being registered at Target means that the Mom is in their computer system to make sure people don't buy two of the same things.

    No, the computerized registration is at the Target store. You have to go there. That's how I've always done it anyway.

    Don't over think it. Go to the registry kiosk...she's already picked out the things she needs/wants. You just have to decide if any of them are within your spending range.
