Considering Amazon for your baby registry? If you ask me, it’s a pretty solid choice.

After all, Amazon’s a go-to spot for finding a good baby deal. Between their February Baby sale, Lightning Deals on baby products, and Subscribe & Save offers on diapers and baby food, you’re sure to save on baby goods year-round.

Let me walk you through how to get a nice little discount on diapers with Amazon’s baby registry, along with instructions for getting a box of baby freebies, and tips to navigate the registry process as a whole. (Because I know it might be tricky to understand the fine print at first).

Remember to download the KCL app or text HACKS to 57299 so for more money-saving tips. Plus, check out our post on how to get free samples for babies and parents.


1. Amazon Prime members get $35 worth of baby freebies upon completing a registry and making a $10 purchase.

Anyone, expecting or not, can create an Amazon Baby Registry, but only Prime members get access to all the baby freebies.

Here’s a step-by-step process for how to sign up:

  • Join Amazon Prime if you haven’t already.
  • Create a baby registry on Amazon.
  • Complete 60% of your registry checklist by adding products from each category to your registry.
  • Purchase $10 worth of products from your registry (either by you or your gifters).
  • Once you’re eligible, you’ll see a “Redeem Now” button on the Welcome Box page (you’ll also receive an email). Click the button to add the Welcome Box to your cart. Then follow the instructions to redeem the offer.

Psst … There are so many other Amazon Prime shopping perks you need to know about.


2. Your $10 purchase technically doesn’t have to be a registry item.

Technically, your $10 purchase will be a registry item, but only because you’ll add it to your registry. But, Amazon doesn’t care if it’s a baby item. I added dog food to my registry because we happened to be out of it, and then when I bought it, I unlocked my Welcome Box offer. Two birds, one stone — you know the drill.


3. … But buying a $10 Amazon gift card won’t get you the Welcome Box.

I know you’re thinking it — so was I! The only thing better than buying something you already need to get that Welcome Box is buying an Amazon gift card and waiting for a sweet deal to use it on, right?!

But, no. Amazon is on to us, and they’ve made it so we have to buy a product to trigger the Welcome Box offer. Of course, you can always buy yourself a baby item from your registry, too.


4. Do you only get the Amazon Baby Welcome Box if you have Prime?

Yes. Unfortunately, only Prime members are eligible for the Welcome Box. But, if you’re not a Prime member, don’t fret. There may be a way still. Amazon offers a 30-day free Prime trial, and it’s reasonable to think you can earn your Welcome Box in that time. If you don’t think you’ll use Prime after the free 30 days, just cancel it. Although, I’m not going to lie. There are so many Amazon Prime member benefits, you might get hooked. Prime is $14.99 per month after the free trial.

And you should know that Amazon isn’t the only retailer offering freebies with baby registries.


5. What comes in an Amazon baby registry Welcome Box?

What you get may be different from this, as welcome box freebies change from time to time. Here’s what I got:

  • Three-piece hat, glove, and sock set
  • Philips Avent baby bottle
  • Nonobebe pacifier
  • Diapers and wipes from brands like Huggies, Pampers, WaterWipes, and The Honest Company
  • Laundry detergent samples from brands like Dreft and Seventh Generation
  • Baby wash and lotion from brands like Aveeno, Cetaphil, Baby Bum, and Baby Dove
  • Coupons

6. Register at least 74 days before your due date for a 15% discount.

Prime members get 15% off select items starting 60 days before the baby’s due date, and it’s good for 60 days after that date, too. This is a total of 120 days of 15%-off discounted baby shopping. (Non-Prime members get a 10% discount.)

Your registry needs to be active for 14 days to qualify for the completion discount. To get the full 120 days of baby deals, make sure you register at least 14 days before the 60-day countdown to your due date starts (so, 74 days before your due date).

Keep in mind that your registry completion discount can only be used on items sold and shipped by Amazon (this is a new change to their policy that’s gotten some flak online).

7. You get an entire year to make an Amazon baby registry return.

Sure, it won’t take you that long to decide if you like what you registered for, but what if you’re expecting a 7-pound baby and she shows up weighing 10 pounds? Or what if your baby grows at a different rate than you expected and you end up with a bunch of summer outfits he’s too big to wear six months after he’s born?

Or, real talk: What if you’re just too tired and busy to mess with returns for the first 10 –11 months of your child’s life? A longer return period lets you put it off and deal with it once you have a rested brain again.


8. If you do a registry, items ship from Amazon, but you won’t get the 365-day return period. website screenshot

Amazon and both offer a universal registry where you can add items from other websites to your registry. Your Amazon baby registry, like, allows you to register for a crib from or bedding from, for example.

One thing to be aware of is that if you register through, your friends and family could be redirected to purchase from Amazon. But when they do this, you won’t get the 365-day return period that Amazon offers if you register directly through them. Fair warning.



9. Save up to 20% on diapers when you buy them with Amazon Family and Subscribe & Save.

To save 20% off diapers, make sure all of your Amazon diaper purchases are done through Amazon Family (Subscribe & Save for baby stuff). When you check out, you’ll get the 20% Amazon Family discount if you have five or more eligible items going to one address.

10. How do I find my Amazon registry?

You’ve created a registry, and now you have no idea where to find it on the maelstrom that is Amazon’s homepage. Don’t worry, it’s easy once you know where to look. Tap on “Accounts and Lists” under your account name in the upper right corner. Under “Your Lists,” tap “Find a List or Registry,” and then tap “Baby Registry.” This will bring you to your own Amazon baby registry.

To find a friend or family member’s registry, you can enter it in the “Find a registry or gift list” field that pops up just before you tap “Baby Registry” to find your own, or use this shortcut: Amazon’s Find a Baby Registry page.


11. How do I find someone else’s Amazon baby registry?

If a registry is set to “Private,” you won’t be able to see it. Registries need to be public for them to show up while searching this way:

  1. Go to Baby Registry Search.
  2. Enter the registry owner’s information in the search box. Any of these work: Parents’ names, city, state, and due date.
  3. Select the registry owner’s name once it populates.

Ready, set, go, and register! And if you want to, tell me what you love or hate about Amazon’s baby registry in the comments.
