How to Find a Walmart Baby Gift Registry

By Flora Richards-Gustafson
Walmart's baby registry takes the guesswork out of finding the right present.

Walmart’s gift registry allows you to select and purchase merchandise that new or expectant parents have indicated they need for their new arrival. Items are usually available for in-store pickup or through online ordering and shipping to a specified address. Using a baby gift registry such as Walmart's allows you to purchase the preferred brand of item in the desired style, size and color. The registry also indicates when a gift has been purchased, which helps prevent the duplication of gifts. Parents register their gift list with the retailer, and gift-givers can find the list online or in the store.

In-Store Baby Registry

Locate the gift registry kiosk. It is usually by the Customer Service Counter however this varies by location. Look for a counter-height stand with a monitor and keyboard. Ask an employee for assistance if help is needed.

Enter the registrant’s first name in the corresponding section using the keyboard at the gift registry kiosk. You will need to type at least the first letter in individual’s name.

Enter the registrant’s last name in the corresponding section of the registry system. You will need to type at least the first two letters of the individual’s surname.

Enter the month and year of the registrant’s baby shower, if applicable, using the respective drop-down menus in the registry system.

Enter the name of the state in which the registrant lives in the corresponding section if you know this information.

Click on “Find” in the gift registry system.

Look through the list of registrant names listed and click on the appropriate one. The next screen will show you a list of items the registrant wishes to receive.

Online Registry

Go to Walmart.com on a device with Internet connection.

Click on the word “Registry.” Depending on the device you use to access the website, this word may be at the top or bottom of your screen.

Click on the bubble next to the word “Baby” in the “Find a Registry Section” of the Walmart Gift Registry page.

Enter the registrant’s first name in the first text box.

Enter the registrant’s last name in the second textbox.

Select the U.S. state in which the registrant lives from the drop-down menu if you know this information.

Select the month and year if the registrant created the gift registry for a specific event, such as a baby shower.

Look through the list of registrant names and click on the appropriate one to see the items listed on the baby gift registry.

Tip

If you cannot find the registrant in Walmart’s Baby Registry, double-check the spelling used. Keep in mind that the registry may be in the co-registrant’s, partner’s or baby’s name.

When you cannot find an individual’s gift registry in a Walmart store or online, verify if she created a registry with the store. If so, ask the registrant for the first and last names used and the correct spelling of each.

If there is more than one registrant with the same name, locate the individual by using the “anticipated arrival” or event date and location.

If you cannot find the correct baby gift registry, look at the "Wish List" section on Walmart.com’s Gift Registry page. The individual may have created a wish list instead of a baby registry.
