You start to realize just how much stuff infants actually need right around the time you make your baby registry. But don’t panic: The first rule of creating a baby registry is having a plan of action. And, like most things in life, Amazon can help make it simple, seamless and, dare we say, even fun. Keep reading to learn more about how to make a baby registry on Amazon—and why you should.

The Benefits of Creating an Amazon Baby Registry

It’s no secret that Amazon’s baby registry platform offers tons of benefits for parents-to-be. The retailer has grown in popularity over the past decade (mainly due to the fact that it offers one of the largest selections), with millions of products available at the click of a button—including all the essentials you’ll need for baby from reputable brands like Graco, Nanit, Lovevery and many more. What’s more, most likely, all of your family and friends use Amazon regularly, so you’ll be making it easy for them to spoil baby with something sweet from your list. The perks of creating an Amazon baby registry are undoubtedly numerous—these are just a drop in the bucket:

  • It’s easy to navigate with tons of ideas and inspiration, including lists of popular registry items and curated picks for you
  • It has tracking for your checklist progress and for thank you notes
  • It provides free returns on gifted items for up to a year
  • It offers a free welcome box for registry users with a Prime membership, including samples for baby and caregivers
  • It provides group gifting options for friends and family
  • It offers the option to create a diaper fund, which loved ones can then contribute to
  • It gives a completion discount of 15 percent on the baby registry

How to Make a Baby Registry on Amazon

Ready to make an Amazon baby shower registry? Below, we walk you through the steps:

  1. Go to Amazon’s “create a new baby registry” page
  2. Sign in or create a new Amazon account
  3. Fill out your registry information, including your name, due date, co-registrant information, shipping address, gifting options and privacy preferences
  4. Hit “create my baby registry”
  5. If you’re creating a second baby registry on Amazon, go to your existing baby registry and hit settings. From there, you’ll follow steps 1 through 4

How to Use Your Amazon Baby Registry

Once you’ve created your registry, you can start adding items to it. Simply search for products (as you normally would when browsing the site)—but, instead of adding the item to your cart, click the button that says “add to baby registry.” From there, Amazon will allow you to mark the item as a “must-have,” enable group gifting options or mark the item as private (so only you and your co-registrant can see it).

To help you add all the baby gear you’ll need, Amazon offers a baby registry checklist with categories for travel gear, nursery furniture, feeding gear, diapering items and more, along with browsing options for each. Once you’re ready, share the registry with friends and family.

Bonus: If you plan on making multiple registries with separate retailers, The Bump can help with that. The Bump’s baby registry makes it easy to bring all your wish lists to one place. Just create registries with all your favorite retailers, including Amazon, and we’ll sync them for you—so you can make it easy for family and friends to navigate all your baby’s essentials in one convenient spot. Ready to dive in? Create your Amazon baby registry here, and check out this ultimate baby registry checklist to make sure you cover all your bases.
