1. Create an Amazon Baby Registry
The first step is really straightforward. You need to create your Amazon Baby Registry, which takes a few minutes.
If you are already logged into Amazon, it will pre-fill your address information. Check to make sure this is correct. You want to ensure everything is being shipped to the correct address should your family and friends contribute. You can also do the following:
- Have specific gift options - If you plan to share the link with many family and friends, I will tick all of these boxes personally. The diaper option will actually help you save money on your diapers. As you will find, family and friends will likely buy you a gift and want to contribute to your diaper fund.
- Group gifting - If you have more expensive items on there, this option will give you the best chance to afford them. It is a pretty cool feature that allows multiple family and friends to contribute to bigger items.
- Privacy settings - If you are not ready to publish your registry, you can keep it private. Otherwise, you can either make it public and even share it on thebump.com or share it through a direct link with your selected family and friends.
- Email options - set up your email options. If you add things to your list that you know you absolutely need, it's good to tick some of the offers opt-in as Amazon will tell you when you can get the product when on offer.
Once you have filled in all of your details and set up your registry, either skip to step 3 if you have Amazon Prime already or sign up for an Amazon Prime trial in step 2.
2. Sign up for a Free Trial of Amazon Prime
Already a Member? Skip to Part 3

3. Add Items to Your Baby Registry
So now that you have signed up for Amazon Prime and your baby registry, it's time to get to business! Go back to the baby registry tab that you left open or click here.
Your login page screen should look something like this:
To be eligible to get your baby welcome box, you need to complete at least 80% of your registry checklist, don't worry; I will show you how easy that is. You can see above Amazon will help you by letting you know what your progress is. It looks like we have some work to do.
Click into your registry to get started.
The image above shows the basic navigation of the registry checklist. As you will see, the registry is divided up into 8 sections with subsections in each section.
To complete the registry, you need to make sure every box is ticked in every category. When a section is completed, it will look like the picture below.
Good to Know
If you already have the item in the category or don't need it, you can click the box, marking it as complete!
When you get to the diapering category, be sure to add in products that you know you will use, like diapers and wipes, be on the lookout for useful products around the $10 mark.

4. Buy $10 Worth of Eligible Products From Your Registry
Now that you have completed your registry, it's time to make a small purchase!

Of course, if you share your registry with friends and family, you don't need to purchase it yourself. This just speeds up the process of you being able to get your free welcome box.
So go ahead and add an item to your cart from your baby registry, proceed to the checkout and place your order.
Once your item has shipped, you will now be eligible to get your welcome box! - magic!
Please note that until the $10 product has shipped to you, you won't check your box to get your free welcome box.
