Creative and brilliant, Aquarians are known as the “geniuses” of the zodiac. Brainiac Aquarius parents make sure their kids are well-educated, starting from birth! Which is why you’ll want to add a few educational baby toys to your registry. Look for high-contrast and black and white objects, which are great for stimulating a newborn’s developing vision.

Pisces parents are gentle, intuitive and super-sensitive to their children’s needs—something newborns have plenty of. Adjusting to life outside the womb is tough, but white noise can prove especially soothing: It mimics the sounds baby is used to hearing in utero and helps lull little ones to sleep. Pisces also have a deep appreciation for music, so you’ll definitely want to have a sound machine on hand, preferably one that also plays lullabies.

Aries are the most action-oriented of the zodiac signs and are constantly on the go. They’re also not known for having much patience. If you plan on traveling or taking lots of outings with baby, the last thing an Aries needs is to fumble around with (and fume over) big, bulky gear. A compact stroller is your must-have registry item. It’s lightweight and easily folds into a tiny, tidy package, meaning you can pop it in your car trunk, carry it onto public transportation or even stow in a plane’s overhead compartment. There’ll be no stopping you now.

There’s a lot of gear out there that provides a safe place for baby to rest: stroller, bassinet, baby bouncer, the list goes on. But since Tauruses are the most gentle and nurturing of the signs, we’re betting you’re going to want to keep baby close. Make sure to register for a baby carrier (structured, wrap, sling—take your pick). That way, you can nestle your newborn to your chest not only when you’re out and about, but also while you putter around the house. It’ll comfort baby and keep your hands free for other tasks—win win.

Gemini parents are fun, playful, versatile and a little scatter-brained. What you need is a baby activity center. It’ll offer your little one a fun play station filled with a variety of sensory toys—right up your alley, no? Bonus: It’s a safe place for baby to hang out while you tear through the house trying to find the latest lost item. Especially for Geminis, “mommy brain” is all too real.

A Cancer’s first instinct is to mother. Parents born under this sign tend to embrace domesticity and thrive in a home environment, and are often excellent cooks. Chances are, you have every intention of making your own baby food. To whip up tasty purees in the blink of an eye, add a baby food maker to your registry. It’ll steam, blend and reheat food with the push of a button, making what’s usually a multi-step process pretty darn streamline.

Leos are warm, creative and a bit dramatic. What better way to put those skills to use than in a baby memory book? There are so many exciting firsts in store for your little one, there’s no way you’re going to remember them all without documenting them. Some books come with prompt pages while others let you play with layouts and scrapbooking—either way, a drama-filled recap of your child’s milestone moments will be a cherished keepsake.

Plenty of new parents take extra precautions to keep everything clean for their new arrival, but Virgos can take things to the next level. After all, they’re known for being a bit obsessed with order and cleanliness. The must-have item for any new parent who’s a borderline germaphobe? A bottle sterilizer. You’ll breathe easier knowing those bottles (and pacifiers, and toys) are truly free of germs and bacteria, and you’ll rest easier not having to sterilize everything by hand.

Libras have a deep appreciation for beauty and a keen eye for aesthetics. They strive to create a lovely home for their children and surround them (and themselves) with high-design items. All this is going to make decorating baby’s room so much fun for Libra parents. In addition to the classic baby essentials, don’t hesitate to register for some coveted nursery decor that’ll brighten baby’s space.

Scorpios tend to be passionate, intense, committed kind of people. As the most observant zodiac sign, Scorpio parents want to keep a watchful eye on their little ones—and to do that, you’re going to need a top-notch baby monitor. For all-or-nothing Scorpios, a smart monitor that tracks baby’s motion and sound as well as breathing (and room temperature and humidity levels) without wires or wearables is a registry must-have. Because peace of mind is priceless.

Couch potato? Not you! Sagittariuses are action-oriented, adventure-loving people with a passion for travel. Set on broadening your child’s horizons? Register for a portable crib. After all, baby is going to need a safe place to sleep while on family explorations (even if it’s just to Grandma’s house across town), and you don’t want to be stuck lugging something massive. Look for a travel crib that’s lightweight with a compact fold and carrying case.

Capricorns are hard-working, responsible, reliable people, and just because baby is on the way doesn’t mean you’ll give up on your other projects and interests. You just need to register for the right gear to free up your hands. There’s where a baby bouncer comes in. These ingenious seats keep little ones happily jiggling (propelled via motor or their own natural movements) and safely contained, allowing you to get some serious work done—and then get back to quality baby time.
