Birth list on Amazon, yes or no? On some other occasion we have had the opportunity to make a comparison between the pros and cons of the online birth list and the physical one in stores (for example, we talked about it HERE), but today we have chosen to do something different: give a voice to mothers ( 12 in particular) who have already created their birth list on Amazon and tell us how it went.
We introduce them to you quickly, thanking them for their collaboration and underlining that, to date, their gestational period is a little further than the one written here which dates back to the day we contacted them: Agnese, 30 years old, mother in August of her first child; Elena, 25 years old, 32 weeks pregnant; Maria, 31 years, 33 weeks; Desiree, 19 years old, 35 weeks pregnant; Jessica, 28, expecting Ryan 22 + 5; Milena, 29 years old, 30th week of the first pregnancy; Sara, 29 years old, 33 + 3 pregnant; Angela, 41 years, 28 weeks; Veronica, 33 years old, sixth month second pregnancy; Erika, 32 years, 33 weeks; Greta, 32 years old, beginning of the 7th month; Liliana, Age 36, week 40 + 1.
We asked each of them three identical questions and these are their answers. We hope they will be useful to you in deciding to make a birth list on Amazon.
Why did you decide to make a birth list on Amazon?
"We have chosen to make the birth list on Amazon because we have many friends and relatives scattered throughout the country and Amazon has allowed us to share with all the products we have chosen, from products for changing and bathing, to the baby seat. machine, from the gym to the sheets for the cot. And then the necessary for breastfeeding, both breast and artificial, dresses, bodysuits, bibs, cradle kit, cradle, cot, blankets, quilts, duvets, trio, light stroller, pacifiers, carousels, toys, educational books , bedtime stories, sterilizer, bottle warmer, safety belts for co-sleeping, reducers, nursing pillows, in short, EVERYTHING !!! ".
"Working and studying I don't have much time to go around, so I use Amazon a lot."
"We chose this birth list because with various red areas, lockdowns, covids, in the shops you did not know how it would go and then maybe some are afraid to go there".
“I decided to take advantage of the Amazon birth list both for the ease of sharing it with friends and relatives, and because there was a wide choice of brands (in other lists like Prenatal you are always very close to the same brands). And I also chose it for the period we were facing with the pandemic, it was much easier for the people furthest away from me to get a gift for my little one directly home! ".
"I chose Amazon because living away from all my relatives and not being able to see them either before or after giving birth, it made me comfortable as a platform".
"My partner and I decided to make a birth list for the baby on arrival essentially for two reasons: the first is certainly to avoid receiving things already purchased by us future parents or to receive duplicates and to be able to choose according to our needs. and functionality of each object. The second was dictated by the belief that a list can also facilitate the choice of those who are interested in giving a thought to this new adventure ".
"I decided to do the birth list on Amazon to have what I might need at hand."
“I'm a bit 'weird' because I decided to make 2 lists, one at Prenatal and one on Amazon. In the latter I decided to include things a little 'smaller' and more everyday, considering the value for money, in order to suggest it to friends and acquaintances who intend to give me a not too demanding thought (like bibs, muslins, baby food kits, sheets, bathrobes, changing mat covers…) ".
“I chose to do the birth list on Amazon to facilitate friends and family who live far from us. Now I am starting to prepare the second birth list and for the experience I had I will also think about the weaning period and the needs of when he will be older ".
“Because you can find everything at advantageous prices, with the convenience of receiving everything quickly at home”.
"I chose to make the list on Amazon because there is the possibility of finding everything and more regarding pregnancy, both pre and post partum".
"I decided to make the list on Amazon for convenience, in a moment you can send the link to anyone who asks you and you can continuously modify it to your liking".
What are the advantages of an Amazon birthlist?
“Everything you need can be found online and almost everything with very fast shipping, in one day we receive at home what they give us, including diapers! And if something is wrong, it happened to me with a dress, which arrived in the wrong size, there is the return procedure. Whoever gives you the gift does not know about the return but you can almost always replace the product or get a refund equal to the amount paid to spend on a new purchase ".
"I used Amazon for the convenience of being able to share the list across the country and beyond to friends and family and they can shop in comfort."
“Very good service. I choose, they order and everything we need arrives home ".
"Positive aspects are certainly the speed of delivery, the variety of products that the platform offers, the advantageous prices and the possibility of comparing various brands".
"The positive aspects are different, it has a wide choice that allows you to see what is right for you and, above all, you avoid receiving the famous double gifts".
“At a time when we are all perpetually in a hurry, buying quickly and online certainly has its advantages. Furthermore, experiencing pregnancy in the midst of a pandemic made us reflect on how important it is to protect as many people as possible, thus avoiding forcing them to go to one or more physical stores in order to make a purchase ".
"Having ideas and reviews based on products and also seeing various products based on price at the same time is an important and positive aspect."
"The positive aspects are the practicality, the competitive prices, the fact of being able to insert and remove independently at any time and have everything under control in real time".
“With the online birth list I was happy because I was able to choose the products from the comfort of the sofa at home and they because they didn't have to go crazy looking for original ideas to amaze me. I have put many products of different price ranges to try to please everyone. There were those who gave only a thought for a few euros, those who wanted to make a bigger gift and those who joined a group for a more substantial gift ”.
"Discounts linked to the birth list and, as I said, the availability of many products".
“It sure is
- super practice,
- you can easily choose between multiple types of the same product,
- add and remove everything you want from the list without obligation,
- discover lots of products you weren't aware of,
- find items at advantageous prices ".
"Of course Amazon doesn't have competitive prices like it used to be, and it doesn't even have all the brands that you could find in physical stores for children, but in any case it gives you a wide choice and in the end I preferred to do the birth list ".
What did you put on the birth list?
"The difficult part was choosing what to put on the list because there is a huge choice but you can really find everything, from the big brands, Inglesina, Peg Perego, Chicco, Mustela, Weleda, Euphidra, to the most refined and natural products such as diapers. washable in bamboo fiber. Not to mention the prices! Always and I mean always lower than in physical stores, among other things often far from home and therefore uncomfortable to reach… we could not have made a better choice ”.
“I pay attention to both the convenience and the origin and quality of the product, in fact in my Amazon list I have included many Made in Italy products of small companies such as the hand made birth bow and a handmade wooden gym. Then I added Chicco products, anti-abandonment device, Pig eats diapers, Mustela products that unfortunately would have cost much more in the shop. In any case, I made the main list in the shop (stroller, car seat, infant carrier, carrycot, Stokke high chair, sheets, cot, etc.) ".
