As Amazon Prime Day concludes today at 11:59 p.m. P.T., you may find yourself in one of two categories. You may be the kind of person who is already keeping Amazon open on multiple tabs, ready to snatch up the latest deals on air fryers, headphones, and storage bins you didn't even know you wanted. Or you're cautiously curious and wondering what all the fuss is about when you don't really need to go on a shopping spree in the middle of June. Whichever type of Prime Day shopper you are, we've got a bit of guidance for you — especially if you also happen to be a parent. 

There is, of course, no end to the list of things you need to buy when you have a kid, and the list of things you want to buy is, as a certain 8-year-old would put it, infinity times two. (And speaking of things they want, don't miss this list of Amazon Prime Day toy deals.) But should you be getting your diaper bags and strollers, your video came controllers and baby dolls, your sunscreens and your Smart TVs, your smart watches and your kids' sandals at Amazon this very minute? 

Well, we have been poring over the list of Prime Deals, and though we don't have all the answers, we do have a pretty good sense of which products you love and which ones have some pretty great discounts on them. Whether you've been waiting for today to snatch up an Amazon Echo or an Instant Pot for less, or you're slowly getting a nursery together for a baby on the way, you'll find something for you and your family on this list. And with Prime Day ending tomorrow at 11:59 pm P.T., you should make your decision sooner rather than later, especially because some of these popular items are bound to sell out.

Most of these deals are available to all, but if you haven't already, sign up for a free trial membership of Amazon Prime today so all your goodies will arrive with free shipping. And don't forget to check back here for new sales and discounts that will be added throughout the week as after Prime Day sales begin to roll out.
