What is the Amazon Baby Registry?

· · ·

A baby registry is a great way for friends and family to help welcome you new addition with gifts that suit our growing family’s needs. Creating a registry makes it easy for people to know exactly what you need and ensures that you don’t receive 10 diaper bags that you don’t need. With online shopping becoming more prevalent it just makes sense to create a baby registry online so anyone, anywhere can buy items for baby.

There are so many online stores it’s hard to decide where to create your registry which is why we love the Amazon Baby Registry. Let’s explain…

Amazon Baby Registry Benefits

Universal Registry – If you don’t find what you’re looking for on Amazon’s website you can easily add items found on other websites to your registry. This is great if you have a lot of little things you like from boutiques across the web. The Amazon’s Universal Registry makes it super easy to add items to your list from anywhere on the web, it’s a simple click of a button.

Free 90-Day Returns – Amazon offers 90-day returns on registry gifts. You receive a credit for the price of the gift, but the gift giver is not notified of your return.

Free ShippingPrime members get free 2-day shipping. If you aren’t a Prime member you totally should be because you get free shipping plus a ton of other awesome benefits.

Low Prices – Amazon is known for having great pricing and easily comparable items to ensure you get a great deal. Plus, if you’re a Prime member, you get free shipping and sometimes additional discounts.

Completion Discount—This is the best part: 60 days before your due date and 180 days after, you can use the completion discount. The discount gives you 10% off (15% for Prime Members). Amazon allows you to apply the discount to a one-time purchase of up to $5,000, which means you can get savings of up to $500 (or $750 for Prime members). (Again, this Prime Membership is just paying for itself now.)

Prime members who create a baby registry, complete the registry checklist and have over $10 of purchases from their registry (from themselves or gifters) will receive the Amazon Welcome Box. The box includes products for mom and baby like samples, coupons and a few surprise items like wipes, lotion, blanket, rattle or other baby items.

It’s easy to share your baby registry via text, email or social media. Friends and family can also search Amazon for your baby registry by entering your name, city, state, and arrival date.

Thank Yous & Returns

Amazon makes it easy for you to track your gifts and who they are from. You can also send thank you messages directly from the list, and Amazon keeps track of who you’ve thanked and who still needs to be thanked. They also keep track of items from your registry that were purchased outside of Amazon.

Gifts purchased from your Baby Registry are eligible for free returns within 90 days of the receipt of your shipment.

To return an item from your Registry

  • Go to your Baby Registry
  • Click on the Thank You List & Returns.
  • Find the item you wish to return

  • Follow the prompts to complete the return.


We think the Amazon Baby Registry is a great place to find and list all the things you may want or need for your new little one. It’s fairly simple to use although it can be overwhelming with so many options available.
