Step 1: Sign up for an Amazon account

The first step in creating an Amazon baby registry is to sign up for an Amazon account. To do this, you’ll need to visit the Amazon website. Once you’re there, you can either click on ‘Hello, Sign in’ or ‘Account & Lists’ located at the top right corner of the page. From there, you’ll be directed to a new page where you can choose ‘Create your Amazon account’. Fill in your personal details as required and click ‘Create your Amazon account’ to complete the sign-up process.

Step 2: Navigate to the Baby Registry page

After successfully signing up for an Amazon account, you’ll need to navigate to the Baby Registry page. To do this, go back to the Amazon homepage. Once you’re there, move your cursor over ‘Account & Lists’ at the top right corner of the page. A drop-down menu will appear, and you’ll want to select ‘Baby Registry’ from the options provided. By clicking on ‘Baby Registry’, you’ll be taken to the dedicated Baby Registry page.

Step 3: Add basic information to your registry

Now that you’re on the Baby Registry page, it’s time to add some basic information to your registry. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Enter your baby’s due date or birthdate: This information will help your family and friends know when to expect the arrival of your little one.
  • Choose whether you want a public or private registry: You can decide whether you want your registry to be accessible to anyone or if you prefer to keep it private. Consider your personal preferences when making this decision.
  • Provide your shipping address: It’s important to provide your shipping address so that your guests can easily send gifts to you. Ensure that your address is accurate and up to date.
  • Add a name for your registry: Give your registry a unique and memorable name. This will make it easier for your guests to find your registry when they search for it.

Step 4: Customize your registry

Personalizing your registry is a fun and creative way to make it truly yours. Here are some ways you can customize your registry:

  • Upload a profile picture for your registry: Choose a cute or meaningful photo that represents the excitement of your upcoming baby. It can be a photo of the ultrasound, a picture of you and your partner, or even just a cute baby image.
  • Write a personalized message for your guests: Take a moment to write a special message to your family and friends who will be viewing your registry. You can express your gratitude, share your excitement, or provide any additional information you’d like them to know.
  • Select a theme for your registry page: Amazon offers a variety of themes to choose from to make your registry visually appealing. Pick a theme that matches your style and preferences.
  • Organize your registry by adding categories or sections: To make it easy for your guests to navigate through your registry, consider organizing your items into categories or sections. You can create sections for feeding essentials, clothing, nursery furniture, and more.

Step 5: Start adding items to your registry

Now that you’ve set up the foundation of your registry, it’s time to start adding items! Here’s how you can do it:

  • Search for baby products or browse the categories: You can either search for specific baby products using the search bar or browse through the categories provided by Amazon. This will help you find the items you need more efficiently.
  • Click on an item you want to add: When you come across an item you’d like to add to your registry, click on it to view more details.
  • Choose the quantity and click ‘Add to Registry’: Once you’re on the item’s page, select the desired quantity you want to add to your registry. Then, click on the ‘Add to Registry’ button to add the item to your registry.
  • Repeat for other items you want to add: Continue searching for and adding items until you’ve completed your registry. Remember to choose items that you truly need and will be useful for you and your baby.

Step 6: Share your registry with family and friends

One of the key benefits of creating an Amazon baby registry is the ability to share it with your loved ones. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Copy the registry link from your registry page: On your registry page, you’ll find a unique link that leads to your registry. Copy this link by right-clicking on it and selecting ‘Copy link address’ or using the keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+C or Command+C).
  • Share the link via email, text message, or social media: Once you’ve copied the link, you can share it with your family and friends through various channels. You can send it via email, text message, or even post it on your social media platforms.
  • Encourage your guests to mark items as ‘Purchased’ to avoid duplicates: It’s important to inform your guests to mark items as ‘Purchased’ on your registry after they’ve bought them. This will help avoid duplicate gifts and make it easier for you to keep track of what’s been bought.

Step 7: Monitor and manage your registry

As your registry starts receiving attention from your family and friends, it’s essential to monitor and manage it effectively. Here are some key actions you can take:

  • Track purchases and thank your gift givers: Regularly check your registry to see what items have been purchased and by whom. Keep a record of the gifts and make sure to send out thoughtful thank-you notes to express your gratitude.
  • Update or remove items from your registry: As you receive gifts or your needs change, you may want to update or remove certain items from your registry. This will help ensure that your registry accurately reflects your preferences and requirements.
  • Edit your registry settings and preferences: Take the time to review and edit your registry settings and preferences. You can adjust your privacy settings, update your shipping address, and customize other details as needed.
  • View and use completion discounts: Amazon offers completion discounts to registered customers. These discounts allow you to purchase any remaining items on your registry at a reduced price. Make sure to take advantage of these discounts before they expire.

Step 8: Redeem your completion discount

When you’re ready to make your final purchases for your baby’s needs, it’s time to redeem your completion discount. Here’s how you can do it:

  • Navigate to your registry’s ‘Offers & Benefits’ page: Go to your registry page and locate the ‘Offers & Benefits’ section. Click on it to access the page that lists all the available offers and benefits.
  • Check for eligibility and click on the completion discount: Look for the completion discount offer and check if you’re eligible to redeem it. Once you’ve confirmed your eligibility, click on the completion discount to activate it.
  • Add eligible items to your shopping cart: Start adding the remaining items from your registry to your shopping cart. Make sure the items are eligible for the completion discount.
  • Proceed to checkout and the discount will be applied: Once you’ve added all the items you want to purchase, proceed to the checkout process. The completion discount will automatically be applied to eligible items, providing you with the reduced price.

Step 9: Follow up with your registry after the baby arrives

After your little one arrives, it’s time to update and manage your registry accordingly. Here’s what you can do:

  • Update the registry with any items still needed: Assess your baby’s needs after their arrival and update your registry accordingly. Add any items that you still require to ensure your registry reflects your current needs.
  • Consider adding items for different stages of your baby’s development: Babies grow quickly, and their needs change as they progress through different stages of development. Consider adding items suitable for those stages to your registry.
  • Continue tracking purchases and sending thank-you notes: Even after your baby is born, it’s essential to keep track of gifts and express your appreciation through thank-you notes. Showing gratitude for the love and support received is a wonderful way to acknowledge the generosity of your family and friends.

Step 10: Close or convert your registry

As your baby grows and your needs evolve, you can decide whether to close or convert your registry. Here’s how you can proceed:

  • Decide whether to close or convert your registry: Depending on your circumstances and needs, decide whether you want to close your registry or convert it into a wishlist for future use.
  • Request closure or conversion through the Amazon customer service: Contact the Amazon customer service team to request closure or conversion of your registry. They will guide you through the necessary steps and assist you in completing the process.
  • Use any remaining completion discount before closure: If you have any unutilized completion discounts, make sure to use them before closing your registry. This will enable you to take advantage of the discounts and purchase any remaining items you need at a reduced price.

Creating an Amazon baby registry is a convenient and practical way to prepare for the arrival of your little one.
