How to use Amazon Baby Wishlist

Amazon Baby Wishlist lets you curate baby products, save money and share with family and friends

Amazon Baby Wishlist is your one-stop shop for infants. The retailer’s hub for all things baby is an excellent way to centralise all of your little one’s needs and share a list of desired or required items with friends, family and those wishing to buy you a gift. With the rise of gender reveal parties and baby showers in the US slowly making its way across the pond, Amazon’s baby-centric ecommerce platform is a real aid for all of your gifting needs, whether you’re giving or receiving.

It’s also a fantastic money-saving endeavour: Amazon Baby Wishlist lets you save up to 15% on baby products when you spend £200 via the Wishlist. That’s a very surmountable task when you consider the plethora of baby paraphernalia out there, from bouncers and breast pumps to slings and strollers.

Whether your due date is looming or you’re in the throes of early parenthood, here’s an explainer of how to make the most of Amazon Baby Wishlist.

How to use Amazon Baby Wishlist

How to get started with Amazon Baby Wishlist

If you’re a new or expectant parent, simply sign into your Amazon account, head to the Amazon Baby Wishlist page and click Get Started. There you’ll be prompted to give your first and last name, your expected arrival date (if applicable) and to confirm your delivery address.

You’ll then be asked permission for Amazon to share your address with gift givers, in order for friends and family to be able to ship gifts to your address. You can opt into a setting that lets gift givers deliver additional items not on your curated wishlist (if not, they’ll be confined to the list you’ve assembled – not necessarily a bad thing!)

Next is a simple infographic marking your progress through Amazon’s own curated “essentials” wishlist of 64 items. Click on this, and you’ll find drop-down lists under a number of separate categories including Nursery, Nappy Changing, Health & Safety and Toys & Books.

On the page you’ll also find a banner of items frequently added to Baby Wishlists, with simple + Baby Wishlist buttons to incorporate them into your own. There are other micro-features dotted around the home page, everything from hospital bag checklists to baby-on-a-budget curated items.

Items to include on Amazon Baby Wishlist

1. Lansinoh SmartPump 2.0

Price: £190 | Buy now from Amazon

If efficiency and peace and quiet are on your agenda, look no further than the Lansinoh SmartPump 2.0, the best value electric pump we’ve tested. This breast pump is of the double pump variety, which lets you process the highest volume of milk in the shortest time. We found that it operated with a blissful lack of noise, too – perfect if you’ve got sleeping tots in tow. A gently backlit digital display (perfect for nighttime expression) lets you monitor your output, but it’s the Bluetooth-compatible smartphone app that we think nudges the SmartPump above its rivals: perfect for multitasking mamas.

This baby sleeping bag offers the security of swaddling without excessive restriction, letting infants sleep with their arms by their sides or raised, should they prefer. Sleeping with elevated arms has been known to help babies self-soothe by offering a more natural resting position. A single two-way zip makes it easy to get your baby in and out of this suit, saving the hassle of poppers or velcro and making nappy changes easier. Plus, the zip is designed to stay put throughout sleeping time and is concealed by soft fabric, so your baby won’t be able to wriggle out of the sleep suit or play with the zipper.
