Amazon Prime Day, the day when Amazon has more deals than you could ever conceivably look through in an ENTIRE LIFETIME, is here!

We waded through the mountains of bargains for you and found some of the best deals in every category (in this case: the best deals for parents to check out).

FYI — deals move quickly on Prime Day. We’ll do our best to keep this post as up-to-date as possible, but we can’t catch everything immediately. Check back throughout Prime Day to see our latest updates as the deals change!

Note: To get these deals you have to be a Prime member, so if you aren't already, sign up for a free 30-day trial here.

1. An Echo Dot for 56% off you can use as a white noise machine to help your baby sleep and then as they get older you'll still find yourself using it for so many other things.


Promising review: "I bought this primarily because I wanted a white-noise machine and most of the actual products designed to be white noise machines had questionable reviews. I decided to go for the Echo Dot instead, thinking that not only would it work great for white-noise (for my baby), but it would also be great to have an assistant in the home. I can play music, send messages, make calls, and order stuff on Amazon, all while holding my baby. I highly recommend this. It can also be used as a Bluetooth speaker, so if you are looking for one of those, why not just get the Echo Dot? You'll get much more bang for your buck.

Also, it looks dang stylish." —Stela

Promising review: "This is absolutely worth every penny. I have thick long dark hair, and after two months of moving into my own apartment, my shower drain was completely clogged. After being disgusted at the amount of hair I cleaned out with a snake (which is NOT fun), I decided to prevent it from happening again. I read about this product on BuzzFeed, and I have no regrets. It is so satisfying to clean out, and it does not lie when it says it catches every single hair. I have had it for close to four months without once instance of my shower drain backing up. This product is absolutely worth it." —Jess

The tray is so incredibly easy to use and clean. We love that we can take it to our parents’ houses easily because it folds up and does not take up much room in the car. Likewise, it’s easy to put away when we have guests over. My daughter is very secure in the chair with the safety harness when she eats." —Allison

Promising review: "I love this thing!!! It's perfect for anyone who doesn't like keeping ice cream around and only wants an occasional treat. You can follow the simple instructions that come with it for making your own mixture (I cut the recipe in half or 1/4 if I'm just making it for me and don't want to keep it in the fridge for too long) or develop your own to suit your own dietary needs.

Promising review: "Love this toothbrush. I have to help my 3-year-old brush his teeth, and this tooth brush makes it so easy. The shape of the head makes it easy to get to all sides of his teeth. I love the 30 second indicator so I can make sure to brush each quadrant thoroughly, and when he’s ready to brush by himself, it will help him so he doesn’t rush the process. Very happy with this purchase!" —Katie Stack

Now: $34.99 (originally $49.05)

23. A Bissell Steam Shot hard-surface cleaner for 20% off that'll get your bathroom walls, kitchen appliances, and all your kiddos' toys sparkling in no time.


Promising review: "I bought this because another reviewer stated it was great for cleaning up after kids and it is!!! I have successfully de-gunked all my kitchen cabinets! You know, all the gross stuff left behind from cooking and toddler hands. Usually, I have to really scrub to get that stuff off. Not anymore!!! Now, I just use a pass or two of the steam and wipe right off. No scrubbing, no chemicals!

I also did the bathroom cabinets and it was just as easy! Deep cleaning baseboards is a dream. It blasts away all the dust that gets stuck in between the baseboard and the wall. Fantastic around the base of the toilet. We have paneled doors that collect dust, this made it easy to wipe off. Usually, I have to scrub with a Magic Eraser to get all the gunk and fingerprints off the doors, but this is even easier. Everything looks freshly painted!

I can't speak of how long this lasts yet, but for $35, if it lasts for a year and how much I will be using it, I will def get my money's worth!" —tizpear

Now: $39.99 (originally $49.99)

24. A Spider-Man car chase kit for your child who hasn't stopped watching Into the Spiderverse yet for 31% off.


Now: $6.89 (originally $9.84)

25. A Dash mini waffle maker for 34% off that'll motivate you to actually get up and make breakfast. Sunday mornings, meet your new favorite tradition.


This waffle maker heats up super quickly, is designed with non-stick pans, and is fairly no-frills: just plug it in, pour in some batter, and wait for the light to turn green. Your waffles are now ready and you basically did nothing. Plus, it comes with a neat little recipe book!

Promising review: "This little cutie makes a great waffle! My daughter is very picky, but she loves to make the mix and eat the finished heart-shaped product. The waffles are tiny, but so cute and delicious. The maker itself heats up quickly and the light will go on and off to indicate when the waffle is ready. It takes about 90 seconds to cook and comes out easily." —Jeff Handy

Now: $9.89 (originally $14.99, available in nine colors)
