Consumers can sign up for the program through their Amazon accounts. Amazon asks consumers to indicate whether they are a mom, dad, step-parent, family member or other caregiver.

Program members receive three months of unlimited, free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime on eligible items, which additional months possible for up to one year. The program offers 30% discounts on select diapers and wipes when members sign up for Amazon’s Subscribe & Save delivery, which enables consumers to receive automatic shipments of products
