After signing up for a registry, how do I get a free Amazon Baby Registry welcome box?

Signing up for the free registry is easy enough, but accessing the Amazon Baby Registry welcome box takes a few more steps. And yes—you want it. It's loaded with at least $35 worth of stuff. Samples of diapers and wipes are typically included, offering new parents an easy way to test the quality of baby items they might normally spend major cash on.

Recent baby boxes have included bestselling infant formula samples, baby diapering and hygiene essentials and must-haves for new parents.

Step-by-step instructions to get your free Amazon Baby Registry Welcome Box:

Have an active Amazon Prime membership

You have to be a Prime member to score the free welcome kit, but that's easy enough. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial and keep it (or cancel!) at any time.

Open an Amazon baby registry—it's also free 

If you're already a Prime member, it shouldn't take you more than a minute or two to sign up for this brilliant registry and claim your free gift. You'll need to fill in a few particulars like your due date, where you want your gifts shipped to and sharing settings. Then you're well on your way to oodles of free baby samples.

Check off most of your list

To get the free Amazon Baby Registry welcome box, you need to check off at least 60 percent of your list. So let's say you add 100 items to your registry, 60 items need to get checked off.

Are you worried about meeting this threshold? Make a tighter, more specific list of just 20 or 30 items. It'll be easy-peasy, then. You can even add gift cards to your registry.


And if you're wondering, yes—we think Amazon's offer is way better than the Target baby registry and rewards program. Prices are better, the product range and selection is more extensive and in most areas, shipping is faster.

Meet the $10 limit

You need to make sure at least $10 in registry items are purchased and shipped to meet the free welcome box hurdle. That doesn't mean you need to spend $10 or more—it's a registry, after all! That means your friends and colleagues can check these wishlist items off for you.

Heck, if you already have older kids you can even add a kids' mattress or the best convertible car seats to the list and get those checked off. Your box includes mostly newborn items and things for mom, but there's no reason your registry can't span a broader timeframe. Thinking ahead is half the parenting game—so why not start here?

Use the “claim now” button

The "claim now" button should appear on your “Benefits and Welcome Box” shortly after you've finished the above steps. Clicking the button adds the welcome box to your cart. Just remember—when you check out, make sure that you select the box next to “use your $35.00 Promotional balance."

If you don't, you'll likely get charged for the otherwise free sample box, and you don't want to spend money. Only customers in the continental U.S. can receive the box, but if you're in looking for more free stuff, this guide to free baby stuff in Canada is a good start. And that's loaded with goodies, too.

What's inside the free Amazon Baby Registry welcome box?


Good question. Amazon keeps the box details a secret because they change frequently, but one thrilled Instagram user recently reported that she got the following:

  • A brand-name pacifier for newborns
  • Laundry detergent for babies
  • Diapers
  • Wipes
  • A snack that is supposed to increase breast milk supply
  • Prenatal gummies
  • Diaper rash cream
  • Organic baby soap
  • Teethers and gum soothers
  • Baby formula samples from top-selling brands
  • Free organic cotton and bamboo nursing pads
  • A single onesie made from 100% organic cotton
  • A machine-washable muslin burp cloth
  • A newly-released sleep swaddle design
  • Several breast milk storage bags and other free nursing accessories
  • 4-ounce bottle designed to accommodate both bottle-fed and breastfed infants
  • Loads of coupons that offer free baby gift options

These free baby boxes are a great way to try new baby brands you might have your eye on or have never even heard of before. Keep what you love or are interested in trying, and give the extra items to friends or family. Either way, raising a kid is expensive and every penny counts!

It's also a great way to try up-and-coming new launches and under-the-radar products. One recent box included an entirely new design of sleep swaddle that gave Amazon shopping parents a preview before the general public.
