It's easy and fun to create a baby registry on Amazon. It is wonderful that you can share your registry with friends and family all over the world.

With your Amazon registry, you can add items from the entire Amazon site you can get exactly what you want. Free 90 day returns are offered on Amazon's baby registry.

Another nice feature of the Amazon baby registry is that you can add items from any website to your registry. All you have to do is install a Registry/Wish List add-on to your browser. Then, when you are browsing any other website and you see something you would like to add to your registry, you just click the browser button and then select which list you would like to add the item to.

Now let's make your very own Amazon baby registry!


Step 1: Create Your Registry

Start creating your registry by going to the Amazon baby registry page. From there, click the create button in the Create a Registry box. You will be prompted to log in to your Amazon account. Once you are logged in, you will be asked to enter the following information:

  • About you: Your name and email address will automatically be entered here. You can edit this information if you wish.
  • About your co-registrant (optional): Your friends and family will be able to search for your registry using your co-registrant's name, though this is optional.
  • Your shipping address: This is the address where you would like your gifts sent.
  • About your baby: Enter in the estimated arrival date of your baby here. This can be edited or changed anytime. This information will help people find you if there are multiple registries with the same name. You can also enter notes for your friends and family in this section.
  • Permissions and Preferences: In this section, you can select your privacy and email notification preferences.

When you're done entering in information, click the Submit button. You will then be sent to a confirmation screen and then you can start adding items to your registry.

Note: It may take up to six hours for your registry to become searchable.


Step 2: Adding Items to Your Amazon Registry

After you enter in your information to create your registry, you will be sent to a confirmation page. On this page, Amazon lists 15 categories of common registry items that you can go through and select which items you want to be included in your registry. Amazon calls these items "Jump Start" items.


Click on any of the categories that you are interested in browsing. This will take you to a shopping page with the available items. Browse the items and add the ones you want to your registry by clicking the Add to Baby Registry button on the right-hand side of the page, under the Add to Cart and Add to Wish List buttons.

You can add products from anywhere on the Amazon site, so you can browse and add products from any department. You can always return to your baby registry by mousing over the Wish List tab and there you will find a link to your baby registry.


Step 3: Share Your Baby Registry with Friends and Family

Once you have created and added items to your baby registry, you are ready to share your registry with your friends and family. You can share your registry by email or on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.

To share your registry, click on the link Share with Friends located on your main baby registry page. Clicking the link will automatically open an email dialogue box where you can type in the emails where you would like to send your registry. There are also Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest icons you can click on to share your registry. You can re-share your registry anytime.

How to Edit Items in Your Amazon Baby Registry

From your main baby registry page, you can edit the items in your registry.

Under the description of each item, to the right of the Add to Cart button, you'll see links where you can Change Item, Move to another list, or Delete Item.

On the right-hand side of each item, under the label that says Quantity Desired, you'll see a link where you can edit the quantity desired, the item priority and you can edit your comments about the item.

Purchasing from an Amazon Baby Registry

Checking Out: To purchase items from a registry, first locate the registry on Amazon. Once you have opened a registry, you can browse the items and then add items to your cart by clicking the Add to Cart button next to each item.

You can sort and browse a registry by price, priority or purchased status if desired.

As you can see in the picture below, items that are purchased from a registry will be indicated by a rattle icon and will state from which registry the item was purchased.

Shipping: The gift registry address will be the default address when checking out of a registry. You can also select a different address from your address book or type in a new one.

Making sure the item hasn't already been purchased: The registry will indicate both the desired and received quantities of items so you know if the item has already been purchased. When desired quantities have been reached, the item(s) will be moved to the bottom under the heading The following items have already been purchased.

Thank You List: On your main baby registry page, you will see a link titled Thank You List. Here you will find the names of everyone who has purchased items from your registry.


And now you're ready to create and share your baby registry with friends and family. Congratulations!
