It’s back! Yes, Amazon Prime Day 2020 is back and with deals that are bigger and better than ever. Delayed due to COVID concerns, this exclusive mid-summer event is now happening October 13 and 14 – so circle the date on your calendars and program your electronic alerts because you’re not going to want to miss out on the incredible deals that over a million e-tailers and retailers are going to be pushing your way.
Not a Prime member yet? Not a problem. It’s easy to join and the benefits are plenty. Consider free shipping (ideal for when you don’t want to fork out more for delivery than the actual item), plus access to Prime Video for limitless streaming of movies and TV, as well as Prime Music for unlimited, ad-free listening to hundreds of Prime Playlists. Then there’s the convenience of Prime Fresh that lets you shop for all your grocery needs on-line, or Prime Dash that allows you to auto replenish your frequently used items including diapers, baby wipes, and all those lotions and potions your little one goes through on a regular basis. It’s fast and free with Prime and best of all, you can customize your delivery dates to jive with family schedules. So, no doorbell chiming during nap time. Still not sure? Take it for a free 30-day test run before you commit.
But back to the amazing deals that are available exclusively to Prime members. This two-day event represents the most competitive selling period for retailers around the world as they all vie for your hard-earned buck. And it delivers savings so deep that it actually rivals Black Friday – minus the mosh pit. Best of all, the deals get better each year as Amazon looks for new ways to wow their Prime members with super easy access to exclusive savings on an exciting range of products. In fact, for over 15 years, Amazon has been consistently upping the ante with each event as they bring in a wider range of cutting-edge merchandise from all the leading brands, at ridiculously low prices. No wonder it’s the most anticipated shopping event of the year, right?
And let’s face it, as a parent you’ve got enough on your plate without having to devote time to regularly scouring the internet for the best deals on toys and clothes for the kids, or electronics and little indulgences for you. Let’s not even talk about shopping for the upcoming holiday season where finding the right gift at the right price can seem as likely as finding a pair of your kid’s matching socks in the dryer. That’s where Amazon’s Prime Day can step in to take the stress out of the holidays. Buy now, give later, and enjoy the down-time with your family.
Now for those of us who are super pressed for time but don’t want to miss out on those extra-special, promotional deals that Amazon pushes out over the course of this event, you’ll appreciate Prime Early Access. It provides Prime members with a 30-minute head start on all those ultra-quick Lightning Deals that offer obnoxiously steep discounts for a brief, 15-minute window of time before they expire and revert back to regular pricing.
So, is your head spinning yet? Don’t be daunted – we’ve already zeroed in on some of the best deals ever for kids and parents alike.
Ready? Let’s shop!
One of our best picks when it comes to electric breast pumps for mamas, this Bluetooth compatible pump from Lansinoh is 20% off and a great deal. Mamas love how quite it is and they especially love the flanges on the Lansinoh—not surprising as they’ve been making products with mom’s nipple comfort in mind for generations.
This luxury 100% organic cotton is natural scoured, unbleached, undyed and super soft—bringing you sweet dreams as it gently cuddles you in the goose down. The medium warmth makes it great for year-round use and the down is responsibly harvested. Certified by OEKO-Tex and OCS, it’s a steal for sweet dreams.
Sometimes, you’re just too tired to clean your face at the end of the day, and that’s why we love these Cleansing Towelettes from Burt’s Bees. They’re great for sensitive skin, and they’re formulated with cotton, rice extracts and aloe to gently remove makeup and take care of your sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic and allergy tested, they’ll make the end of the day (or start, if you want) easier for less money.
This organic cotton and wood playmat is a perfect Montessori start for your little one. An activity mat that will let them explore three touchable and squeezable sensory toys, the cloud-shaped mirror and beads are bound to interest your wee one and encourage them to explore their imaginations, if only in their minds for now. It helps build strong motor and hand-eye skills, and the organic cotton playmat is machine washable.
This deal makes these three boxes of organic aniseed, fennel and cardamom tea blends a must have on Prime Day. Pukka helps cleanse, balance and restore—all without caffeine and non-GMO leaves used. It’s certified organic and Kosher and Certified Fair for Life. These high-quality pharmacopoeial herbs are just what the natural mama ordered.
These 100% organic cotton changing pads are made without harmful chemicals, herbicides or pesticides. They’re super soft for baby’s skin and you don’t have to worry about any toxins near their skin. We love these patterns and colors and the thick, elastic band keeps them on the mattress band with ease.
This bamboo/rayon nursing cover is so soft and we love that you can use it for a nursing cover, a car seat cover, a shopping cart cover or even a scarf for you. It’s stretchy and spacious and super versatile, but we love that the lightweight material keeps baby comfy and is on such a hot sale for Prime Day.
This organic nipple cream soothes, protects, moisturizes and helps heal cracked nipples you may get as a result of breastfeeding. It’s nontoxic and lanolin free, so you don’t have to worry if there’s anything left when baby is nursing. You can apply to nipples after nursing or as needed and you don’t have to wash off because it’s 100% organic. A must-have for nursing mamas.
This iMartine Robotic Vacuum cleaner is a STEAL at 74%! At this price, you can get one for each floor and talk about saving time for whoever is cleaning the house. It’s Wi-Fi/ Alexa enabled, which means you can set it and forget it; you’ll just get to always have a clean floor with the push of a few buttons on either the vacuum itself or your app.
Mamas love the Pure Enrichment Baby Cloud portable sound machine. It’s an unobtrusive night-light that changes colors and offers your little one five soothing sleep sounds with five volume settings to help them have nice white noise to put them into dreamland. With a 30-minute auto-off timer, it’ll shut the sound and night light off to save batteries and the short Velcro straps keep it safely attached to baby’s crib, stroller or even if you’re in the car with a long ride.
A mama favorite when it comes to non-toxic crib mattresses, the Lullaby Earth non-toxic waterproof crib mattress is a great deal. It has firm support even though it’s nice and lightweight and because it’s waterproof on all sides, it’s easy to clean. With no flame retardants, PU foam, vinyl/PVC, adhesives, VOCs or off-gassing, it’s GreenGuard certified to make sure baby is safe when sleeping. Made in the USA.
If you’re looking for a lightweight toddler (and baby) crib mattress, you’ll love this Sealy Soybean Foam-Core at 65% off. Because there’s more durability than conventional foam, and uses renewable resources with fewer crude oil usages, this foam is Certi-Pur-US certified and is free from phthalates, lead, mercury, formaldehyde, PBDES, TDCPP or TCEP flame retardants that may be a concern in non-certified foams.
It’s GreenGuard Gold certified for indoor air quality, made in the US, and a little softer for toddlers who are able to handle that at their developmental stage.
A mama favorite for its versatility and longevity, the Graco Blossom 6-in-1 Convertible High Chair is on a great sale and is perfect for homes with multiple young children. Especially great for those families with two under two, it’ll grow with them—allowing a baby and a toddler to use the features at the same time and both be seated with different features of the chair. With 6 height adjustments and 3 recline positions, you can be sure your baby will be safe and comfy during all meals—even when they’re a big kid.
Kids love projects that they get to create and use their hands with and we love the dexterity and hand-eye coordination this Klutz String Art Book Kit will give to your kiddo. They’ll be able to transform strings and pins into works of art, at over 50% off the regular price. There’s a great instruction manual for each project and they can create six different boards of their choice. A great holiday gift you can snag now.
Prime Day is our favorite time to stock up on pantry staples and this Asian Pear and Ginger Kombucha is one of our mama forum favorites! There are 24 cans of fermented sparkling tea and it’s of course USDA organic, non-GMO and BPA free. A favorite daily stress relief drink that you can count on, now’s the time to buy as it’s like buying 2 for the price of 1 case.
It’s so hard to find a good fair-trade decaf coffee that you can put in your Keurig for quick spots of delicious dark roast taste. But on Prime Day, they’re on sale so stock up. These cups are full of gently decaffeinated coffee (using the Swiss Water process) and are compostable, free trade and without question, delicious Arabica coffee beans.
Prime Day being so close to the holidays makes it even easier to do holiday shopping and this STEM Building Toys 2-in-1 Remote Control Racer not only gives kids the opportunity to use STEM skills and build their racer, but the fun in driving it remotely too. The pieces snap together and are great gift ideas for 6-9-year-old boys and girls.
This 16 oz. bottle of Sky Organics Fractionated Coconut (MCT) Oil is a bargain at 50% off and it’s one of the favorites in our Mothering forums for its lightweight texture that doesn’t leave you feeling greasy. It can be used as a body or massage oil, makeup remover, essential oil carrier oil, hair conditioner or just about anything you can think of that you need some amazingness because we all know how awesome coconut oil is. It’s 100% vegan and cruelty free with no fragrance or mineral oil added.
Want hours of screen-free fun? The Boogie Board Magic Sketch Color LCD writing tablet will deliver. Kids love to draw and write in rainbow colors and with the electronic erase, there’s no mess! Kids just hit the erase button and start something new when they want—over and over. No markers, no mess and nothing to charge. It’s the best for trips in the car.
Green Toys are one of our favorite toy brands and it’s no wonder with all their fun coming from recycled plastic. The Rescue Boat with Helicopter was new this year, and at 54% off, you’ll want to grab a few to give as gifts because they’re fabulous ways to stimulate imagination in an eco-friendly way. Besides, how cute is that captain and pilot?
These jumbo building blocks are always a hit, and we love that they allow children to build and grow and let their imaginations flow, all without screens and with non-toxic, recyclable materials that don’t have to flash or zoom or whizz to be super interesting and fun. There are 40 durable blocks in bright primary colors, and the building possibilities are only limited to your child’s designs.
We’ll be honest. We’re all about showing our true selves and not feeling like we have to meet some standard of beauty in this hyped-up world we live in. But…we look at what y’all talk about in the Mothering forums and this is a favorite for those days when you DO want to jazz yourself up and show the world a filter-free picture. This body blur does the trick, and it’s organic from Northern Ireland to make you HD ready.
