Not drinking more than 4 oz at a time by a year is totally not normal, I would definitely register for te 8 oz ones.

Definitely register for smaller things, most people do not buy large items like cribs and whatnot. We figured family would go in together on large things but they didn't. My parents split the nice pack and play system which was awesome. But other family just bought clothes and nicknacks for the most part.

My oldest never drank more than 4oz at a time either. Wouldn't know with my youngest since he only nursed.

Re: What to register for?!

My "Can't Live Without It!" items are the Ergo and a few Woombies. I don't know if Woombies are available at either store, but I do know that Target now sells Ergos. Your baby needs a place to sleep, something to eat (whether that be Mama's boobs or supplies for bottle-feeding), diapers for butt, clothes to stay warm and a car seat. That's really about all. The rest is just wants. I found many things unnecessary and basically useless: the Diaper Genie (Who wants to trek dirty diapers up to a special trash can at least twelve times a day? I just put them in the closest trash can.), mobiles and bed sets (Any blanket will do and traditional bumpers aren't safe.), basically all toys for very young babies, fancy gear, fussy outfits with too many buttons or no occasion to wear, etc. Another really useful item I have had is the bouncy seat. Little ones tend to love them and sometimes Mama will have to put them down (You know, you'll still need to shower and use the restroom and such.).

Extra sheets for the crib wouldn't be a bad idea either.

A wrap or carrier like a Moby or Ergo.

A wipe warmer made a big difference in cooperation at diaper changes for us.

Kiddapotomas swaddle blankets with velcro and Halo sleep sacks for when baby gets bigger.

Carseat and stroller.

Monitor.

A white noise machine.

Diapers and wipes.

Crib sheets.

Burp cloths (we used Gerber prefolds).
