How to create a second Baby Registry on Amazon

Sharing is caring!

Hey there, fellow parents! If you're expecting your second (or third, or fourth...) little bundle of joy, you might be wondering how to handle the whole baby registry situation. It feels a little different the second time around, right? I'm here to help you navigate the world of second baby registries on Amazon, and share why it's absolutely a good idea!

Why Bother with a Second Baby Registry?

  • Gear Updates: Babies = lots of stuff. Maybe you need a double stroller this time, or your car seat is expired. A registry is a great way to get those bigger-ticket items.
  • The Essentials: Even if you kept everything from your first baby, who doesn't need more bottle nipples or a fresh baby carrier?

  • Gift Guidance: Even if friends and family don't throw a full shower, a registry gives loved ones a place to find gifts they know you'll love.

For your second baby registry, focus on essentials you might need to replace or top up, like diapers, wipes, and bottles. Consider gear upgrades for your growing family, like a double stroller or a backpack diaper bag. Don't forget about the new arrival itself! Add items they'll use uniquely, like clothes in their own size and some special bath toys or a sound machine. You can also register for bigger-ticket items you've been wanting, like a new baby carrier or a monitor with split-screen viewing to keep an eye on both your little ones.

Step-by-Step: Creating Your Second Amazon Registry

  1. Log in: Head to your Amazon account and sign in using your usual login details.
  2. Find Your Old Registry:
    • Navigate to the "Accounts & Lists" section, usually found by hovering over your name in the top right corner.
    • In the drop-down menu, look for "Baby Registry" or something similar. This should take you to your first child's registry page.
  3. Click "Settings":
    • Look for the "Settings" option or a gear icon on your existing registry page. This is your key to creating the new one!
  4. "Create a New Baby Registry":
    • You should find the option to create a new registry near the bottom of your settings page. Click on this to start the process.
  5. Fill It Out:
    • Enter all the important details:
      • Your new baby's due date
      • Your shipping address (in case it's changed since your first registry)
      • Any other information requested by Amazon
  6. Add the Fun Stuff:
    • Now the best part – browsing and adding items! Think carefully:
      • What do you actually need this time around?
      • Are there must-have upgrades on your wish list?
      • Focus on items for your new baby, plus replacements for well-loved essentials.
  7. Share the Love:
    • Once you're happy with your registry, get that link out there! Share it with family, friends, and anyone who might want to celebrate your growing family.

Sharing your Amazon Baby Registry is super easy! Here's how:

  • Find your Baby Registry page within your Amazon account.
  • Click "Share" at the top of the page.
  • You'll get a link to copy and paste, plus buttons to share directly on your favorite social media platforms.

Just a heads up: if your registry is set to private, you won't be able to share it. You can change your privacy settings if you'd like to make it shareable.

Amazon's Baby Registry Welcome Box

Amazon's Baby Registry Welcome Box is a fun surprise for new parents! To get yours, you'll need an active Amazon Prime account and a baby registry with at least 10 items from their checklist. Once someone buys $10 worth of items from your registry (not including tax, shipping, or gift cards),  you'll be eligible to claim your box. It's filled with sample and full-sized baby and parent treats! Keep in mind, there are some restrictions: it ships only within the contiguous United States, and you can only get one box every 8 months. Supplies are limited, so snag yours while you can!

Amazon's Baby Registry Completion Discount

Amazon's Baby Registry Completion Discount is a fantastic way to save on those last few items you need for your new arrival! To take advantage of it, your registry must be active for at least 14 days. Look for items marked "Completion Discount Eligible" and add them to your cart. You can claim your 15% discount 60 days before your baby's due date and up to 90 days after. This discount can save you up to $300 on those must-have baby essentials. Just remember, there are a few limitations and you can only use the discount once every 8 months.

Thank you List

Amazon's Thank You List is a lifesaver for keeping track of gifts received through your baby registry! It makes it easy to see who sent what, and helps you stay organized with thank you notes. While you can't send thank you notes directly through Amazon, you can mark each gift-giver as "thanked" once you've sent your own note. Remember, some gift-givers might not share their address for privacy, and your own purchases won't show up on the Thank You List.

FAQs

  • Can I get another Amazon Welcome Box? Yes! Just meet the same requirements as your first registry.
  • Do I need a Prime Membership? Yes, for the completion discount and welcome box.
  • I don't want to seem greedy having a second registry. What should I do?  It's completely normal to feel a bit hesitant about a second registry. Remember, your loved ones want to celebrate your growing family! Focus your registry on essentials you actually need, upgrades, and a few special items for your new baby. Be sure to include items at a variety of price points, and don't hesitate to register for non-traditional gifts like gift cards or meal subscriptions.
  • Can I add items to my second registry that weren't on my first, even if they're more "general family" items? Yes! While the focus should be on your new baby, this is a great opportunity to get things your family could use with the addition of another child. Think about items like a larger diaper pail, a snack subscription box for your older child, or even some new books or toys to keep them entertained while you're occupied with the baby.

Tips

  • Don't Be Shy: This is your chance to get those special items you want for your growing family! Whether it's an upgraded stroller with all the bells and whistles, or a replacement for a well-loved baby carrier, don't hesitate to add them to your registry.
  • Mix Price Points: Your friends and family will want to show their love, no matter their budget. Include a variety of items at different price points, from cute onesies and essentials to larger purchases they can go in on together.
  • Think Outside the Box: Don't limit yourself to just baby gear! Gift cards give you flexibility to buy what you need when the time comes. A wearable pump can be a huge help for a busy mom, or even a subscription to a meal delivery service to take the stress off of cooking in those first few weeks.
  • Bonus Tip: Regularly update your registry as your needs evolve. Remove things you've received elsewhere, and add new items that pop up.

So, whether you're a seasoned parent or facing this baby rodeo for the first time, having a second Amazon baby registry is the easiest way to prepare for your newest addition! It's a safe place to ask for exactly what you need – maybe a better baby monitor, the best baby products for your growing family, or just some fun things to celebrate baby number two.

Remember, loved ones want to support you, whether it's a full-on baby shower or a sprinkle to welcome your new bundle. An Amazon registry is the most convenient place for them to find gifts (and for you to get those Prime membership perks like the completion discount!).

Don't wait –  get started on your second registry today! Who knows, you might even get that awesome product box! And if you found this little guide helpful, please feel free to share it with other new moms.
