a look inside our (free!) Baby Welcome Box from Amazon...

Amazon Baby Welcome Box 2017 | When I was pregnant with my second child, I posted about two baby freebies I received (one from Target and one from Amazon). Companies are pretty generous these days with their registry gifts, and I'm even more impressed this time around! I couldn't believe I was able to get this box o' goodness from Amazon for free. There are a few steps you have to complete in order to get one of these for yourself (or someone you know who is expecting their own little peanut), but the effort is totally worth it.

See below for all the goodness tucked inside the box I received, and a guide on how to get one, too!
Amazon Baby Welcome Box 2017 | yourwishcake.comAmazon Baby Welcome Box 2017 | The box I received a couple years ago was not this large, nor did it hold as many full-size or "big ticket" items. They say the products inside have a value of $35 (although I know they always inflate the value for these types of promotions). I'm including approximate retail prices for the full-size items—based on what is currently shown on Amazon—so you can have a better idea of the value. (They actually get pretty close to $35, based on my own calculations!)

Amazon Baby Welcome Box 2017 | Could this swaddle blanket possibly be any more adorable? I think not. It's definitely my favorite item from the box. So precious, and large enough to use with a child older than a newborn (so many swaddle blankets I have are so tiny!).

Here are the steps you have to follow in order to receive this welcome box for free:
  1. Be a current Amazon Prime member (or sign up for a 30-day free trial!).
  2. Create a baby registry here.
  3. On the baby registry page, note these options to the right of the Baby Registry logo: exclusive offers, completion discount, welcome box, free diapers, and registry deals. Click on "check status" under welcome box
  4. Complete the checklist under welcome box, which includes adding items to your registry and such. It's all pretty quick and straightforward.
  5. In order to qualify for the welcome box, you need to have $10 worth of items on your registry purchased and shipped. These do not have to be baby items, and if you're already a Prime member who orders regularly, simply add something you were going to buy anyway and then purchase it off your registry! (I added shampoo and conditioner I needed to my registry and purchased it from there in order to qualify. Easy peasy!)
  6. Once the items you purchased from your registry ship, then return to the checklist to make sure everything has been completed, then you'll be able to claim your box there. I received mine within a week after claiming it!
Amazon Baby Welcome Box 2017 | This box is pretty fantastic, and I definitely think it's worth making the extra effort to get something like this for free. Let me know if you end up getting one yourself, and whether you received anything different! I know sometimes they send out a variety of items in these boxes, and I'm always curious about what people end up getting. 

And if you have any registry freebies you recommend, please share! (I also snagged one from Target, which I'll be sharing with you sometime next week...)
