The Black Friday Baby Deals You Don’t Want to Miss

Here’s how we’re shopping this year. Follow suit—you deserve to save big.

Listen up, parents: If there was ever a time to capitalize on Black Friday sales, it’s now. You don’t need us to tell you kids are expensive, but that’s not the only reason to shop for savings this season. Editor-approved brands and parent-favorite retailers (looking at you, Amazon and Target) are delivering big on Black Friday baby deals. Let us help you find the best, most-worth-it discounts for your family. We have everything you need to know below.

First things first: When is Black Friday this year? The 2019 shopping holiday falls on November 29, but expect some Black Friday baby deals to appear in stores and online (our preferred way to shop, #busyparents) even before Thanksgiving dinner is over. Target, for example, is known for launching its sale bright and early on Thanksgiving morning. Meanwhile, Amazon deals often begin weeks in advance, with special offers for Amazon Prime members throughout the month of November. (On that note, it might be time to sign up for a Prime membership so you can score the best deals.) Overall, expect plenty of price drops, impressive percentage discounts, free shipping promo codes and lots of other perks across the web and in stores.

How should you prepare? Just keep reading this guide to Black Friday deals on baby stuff. We’re sharing exactly what to keep an eye out for based on last year’s Black Friday baby sales. As for a list of this year’s deals? We’re working hard to round them up for you ASAP. (Seriously—we’re in full-blown deal-hunting mode.) Bookmark this page and check back in closer to the end of November. By then, we’ll have the complete rundown of the Black Friday baby deals of 2019.
