Your baby registry has to be set to public before you can share it. Once public, go to the main page and click “Share Your Registry.”

You can share the registry list via email or social media.

People can also search for your baby registry with your first name, last name, or email address.

People will not find your baby registry if you have set it to private or shared.

It’s very easy to return a gift from your baby registry. When you log in to your registry, look for the “Thank you list & returns” section.

Pick the item you want to return and proceed with it.

If the item you want to return isn’t from your baby registry, the return has to be processed via Amazon’s Online Return Center.

Can You Delete Your Amazon Baby Registry?

Once your little bundle of joy arrives and you don’t need the registry anymore, you can go into the baby registry settings and delete it.

The registry cannot be restored after deletion so make sure you’ve sent out any thank you notes or anything else before deleting it.

You can create more than one baby registry. However, you cannot have multiple active baby registries.
