The best thing new parents can do when shopping for their bundle of joy is creating a baby registry on Amazon.
In this post we will talk about all the pro’s and con’s of creating a baby registry on Amazon and how to do it. But first, let’s talk about what a baby registry is and why you need one.

What is Amazon Baby Registry?
If you’re expecting a new baby, friends and family are probably itching to start spoiling your little squish already. A baby registry is a way for you to create a list of all the items you need or want for your new baby. That way friends and family will be able to choose gifts for you that are truly needed or wanted instead of just guessing what might be on your wish list.
There are a lot of stores out there that offer baby registry, but keep reading below for a list of reasons why Amazon is the best baby registry.
When should you start a baby registry?
You can start ASAP! Get your list going as soon as you’d like. Sooner rather than later is probably best because sometimes friends and family want to send you a gift as a congrats for announcing your pregnancy or even a gender reveal instead of waiting for a baby shower.
How do you find someone’s baby registry on Amazon?
Just head over here and type in the person’s name you are searching for.
So many choices on Amazon
Of course, the number one reason to choose Amazon when creating a baby registry is because of how many options you have. There are very few products out there that you can’t find on Amazon.
Not only that, but most people also have a Prime Membership. That means that all of your friends and family will be able to order gifts off of your registry with that sweet 2-day free shipping.
Add items from other stores too
Just in case you can’t find what you’re looking for on Amazon, you can also add products from other retailers to your Amazon Baby Registry.
Pretty Sweet, huh? Just be sure to add the Amazon Assistant web browser extension, and you’ll be able to add items from all over the internet to your registry and other lists as well.
Get an extra 10-15% off with the completion discount
If you have some items left on your list that weren’t gifted to you, you can go ahead and buy them yourself for an extra 10-15% off! Non-prime parents receive 10% off, but if you are a Prime Member, you get an extra 15% off!
This is why I suggest getting a baby registry for all expecting parents even if this isn’t your first rodeo.
Being able to use that completion discount on any odds and ends you need for the new baby is a penny-saver by creating a baby registry on Amazon!
Get a FREE welcome box from Amazon
You can get a free box from Amazon valued at $35! (Because who doesn’t love free.)
To get your free welcome box all you have to do is have a baby registry with Amazon, and have $10 worth of products purchased from the registry. Once you have reached that threshold you can click a “Claim Now” button on your registry page, and within days your welcome box will be at your door!
I love this perk of creating a baby registry on Amazon.
Have a big item or two that multiple friends and family want to chip in for? No problem! With Amazon’s Group Gifting, multiple people can contribute towards one gift.
Gifters just choose the item they’d like to contribute to and can either choose to purchase it all by themselves as an individual purchase or contribute to the gift. Once they choose to contribute to the gift they can choose any amount over $1 before checking out.
Start a Diaper Fund
Diaper are sooo expensive, and will cost you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars in just one year alone. The diaper fund feature allows people to contribute to your diaper fund via adding whatever amount of money they would like. It will be converted into Amazon gift cards you can use for diapers or other items whenever needed. It’s kind of like a cooler version of a gift card.
90-day return window
Sometimes you don’t know what you’ll actually need or use until the baby is actually here, which is why Amazon has an awesome 90-day return policy on items purchased from your registry. Plenty of time to test them out and decide if they’re right for your family.
