Babies are expensive. Aside from the obvious diapers, furniture and strollers, there are tons of other little items that, while you might not necessarily need them, they do come in handy.
If you are pregnant and starting to prep for baby’s arrival, make sure to check out all the freebiesbelow and even this free online prenatal class run by an RN.
If you take advantage of all the free baby stuff in this post, you could potentially save over $1000 on baby gear and formula. That could really help cut the cost of having a baby and help you stick to a budget.
The first freebies are my favorites, if you want to kit your baby out in the cutest gear without breaking the budget, check out free baby stuff below. This stuff is all free (just pay shipping), great quality and really really cute! You can get over $500 of stuff, completely free!

I personally have the car seat canopy, the nursing cover, plus tons of the baby leggings and they are all awesome and get compliments all the time. They also made amazing baby shower gifts.

Even if you are planning on breastfeeding, it might be worth sending off for the free formula samples because you often get other freebies included too like bottles, change pads and pacifiers.
If you are having a baby shower, also make sure to open up one (or more) registries and take advantage of the free baby stuff the big stores give out when you sign up.
Many also have a completion discount so you can get some money off your purchases even if you are buying them yourself.

Other Baby Registry programs that offer free baby stuff
Open up a baby registry with Target and you will get a free baby welcome gift the next time you go to the store. The gift bundle is packed with free samples and coupons for baby products.
Walmart has a similar offering – open a registry and get a welcome box full of samples and coupons.
Open up your baby registry with Buy Buy Baby and you will get a goody bag full of samples and coupons. You can open your registry online and then pick up your goody bag in store.
Where to get free formula samples for moms
Most of the major formula companies give out free samples to new and expecting moms in the hopes that your baby will take to their brand and they will have found a new customer.
The great thing about formula samples is that a lot of the companies, such as Gerber, also make toddler food and snacks and will send you coupons for those items as your baby gets older.
I highly recommend joining all of the formula sample clubs below. If you don’t end up using the formula, you can donate it to a local food bank.
Join Enfamil Family Beginnings and you will receive a package of free formula samples, milestone cards, coupons and more plus coupons and offers throughout your baby’s first few years. Enfamil’s website claims the free gift bundle is worth over $400 and given the cost of formula, they are probably right!
Sign up with the MyGerber program and you will be sent coupons and offers in the mail. They do sometimes also send free formula samples.
Another super generous program, Similac Strong Moms will send you over $400 worth of free formula samples, formula checks and accessories when you sign up.
Natures One makes organic formulas and formulas with no corn syrup and other “extras”. You can try the formula for free by signing up and paying shipping ($5.95).
Free Diapers and More
One of the best ways to get free baby stuff is to brainstorm all the brands you plan on using and then checking their websites. Many baby brands give our free samples, coupons or have reward programs that can earn you freebies.
Here are some of my favorites:
You enter the codes you find on diaper and wipes packages and redeem your points for Shutterfly gifts, coupons or mechandise. I love this program and always use my points for my Christmas Cards from Shutterfly. (check out my DIY Christmas Photo ideas here.)
Make sure to “like” the Pampers rewards Facebook page and twitter as they often post bonus codes.
If you end up being a Huggies family, never fear as they have a very similar program to Pampers and you can even get a bonus 500 points just for joining up.
Huggies doesn’t work on a codes system, instead, upload your receipt to their app, just like you do with other shopping apps.
I love the Honest company diapers. They are sooo cute (check out all the pretty designs). If you would like to try their products for yourself, you can order a free trial bundle and just pay shipping.
If you don’t want to continue your subscription, make sure to cancel it before the deadline. I found it very easy to cancel and there was no hard sell.
Mam pacifiers are probably the best out there, especially for colicky babies. Join the MAM club and get free samples, coupons and offers.
Moms meet is an online sampling club for moms. Sign up to become a Mom Ambassador and get access to free baby samples and other healthy products. Moms Meet also has a rewards program where you can earn rewards for visiting their site, answering surveys etc and then redeem your points for prizes.
