The annual Amazon Prime Day kicks off on Monday night at 9 p.m. EST and we’re more than a little excited about snagging the very best Amazon Prime Day deals for baby + mama. New bargains go live every five minutes—but we’ve got you covered: Just save this page and check back throughout the day as we track down the best offers on goods for pregnancy, baby, child and, of course, you! ?


First things first, be sure to sign up for Amazon Prime—a mom’s best friend when she’s low on diapers and the energy for a run to the grocery store. Not only is the 30-day free trial of Prime Day the best offer of the year, but it’s truly a gift to yourself that keeps giving as you enjoy access to Amazon Prime’s extensive video, audio and book collection. Plus, free two-day shipping on just about any product imaginable is basically a necessity. (Better yet, Prime Now allows Amazon users in major cities to have products delivered within the same day.)

And, if you’re expecting, now is a great time to sign up for Amazon’s baby registry: With an Amazon Prime membership, you’ll receive $100 in credits for diapers or wipes once your friends and family buy $1,000 worth of items from the registry. Win-win! (Also, how cute is Amazon’s handmade baby store?!)

Now that you’re all signed up for Prime, let’s get shopping!
