Wal-mart Baby Registry, the company that runs the baby registry that has raised more than $2.2 million to help families navigate the birth process, announced Monday that it is not accepting new babies as of January 1.
The announcement comes just a week after Wal-Marts baby registry began accepting baby pictures, which it says are not intended to be used for advertising.
The company has been under scrutiny over its use of baby photos and how it uses them to promote its baby growth program, which is designed to help babies reach a healthy weight and start growing again.
The registry uses the photos for a variety of reasons, including promoting weight loss, encouraging breastfeeding and for the benefit of families.
The website has said it uses “appropriate parental consent.”
The company also announced Monday the creation of a new online store called BabyCenter to help parents make the birth of a baby easier.
It said it will be selling baby products including birth-control, diaper bags, and other baby supplies and diapers.
The company has also been working to get rid of its baby registry from its website.
In September, it announced a program to give $500 rewards to parents who help their babies reach healthy weights and start growling again.
Wal-Mart announced in September that it had started allowing people to register as baby donors to help it save money on shipping and other costs.
Wal-Merger announced in January that it would stop accepting baby donations.
WalMart did not respond to requests for comment on Monday.
A baby registry is not the only way to help people avoid a costly birth.
There is also a website called BabyHabit, which was started by a family of three.
The site offers tips on how to stay in shape, make sure you get enough exercise and keep your babies safe.
