You can return baby registry gifts from the “Thank you list & returns” section under your account.

Gifts purchased by others from your registry can be returned within 365 days while gifts purchased by the registry owner can be returned with 90 days.

However, a gift cannot be returned for cash. You will receive an Gift Card in place of cash in your account once the return is received.

The value of the gift card is equal to the value of the gift assuming it’s returned in the same condition. If not, the value of the gift card may be reduced.

7. How Do I Get 20% Off Amazon Baby Registry?

8. Can You Track Amazon Baby Registry Items?

Amazon will notify you when something is purchased from your baby registry. You can track its progress from your account under “Purchased”.

You can also go to the “Orders” page in your account, select the relevant order, and track the package.

9. How Do You Find Out Who Sent You Something From Amazon?

Go to the “Thank You List & Returns” page on your account.

The list will show all the names and addresses of all the people who have purchased items from your baby registry.

In some cases, gift-givers don’t share their addresses so that won’t show up but the name will.

10. Do I Need The Original Packaging To Return To Amazon?

Items need to be returned to Amazon in the condition they were received. If you send it in another way, your refund may be lower than you spent.

Try your best to return it in the original packaging even if you already opened it and looked at it.

You can add and remove permission for co-registrants via the baby registry settings

Amazon is one of my favorite places to shop. I had no idea that they had a baby registry. I'll be sure to remember that for the next friend planning a baby shower.
