Where To Get 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 check their websites. Many baby brands give our free samples, coupons or have reward programs that can earn you freebies.
Join as many as you can to maximize your baby freebies!
The Huggies Rewards program is great because you can redeem points for non-baby items like gift cards and coupons.
You get points when you buy any Huggies product (wipes or diapers) plus you can get started with 500 points when you sign up here.
You enter the codes you find on diaper and wipes packages and redeem your points for Shutterfly gifts, coupons or merchandise. I love this program and always use my points for my Christmas Cards from Shutterfly.
Make sure to “like” the Pampers rewards Facebook page and twitter as they often post bonus codes.
Everyday Family Sampler Club
Join the Everyday Family sampler club and receive a new box of samples every month as part of this exclusive program. You also get entered into a contest to win free diapers for a year.
Get more info and join the club here.
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.
No Baby Unhugged
This is a program by diaper company Huggies. You can get a free pack of newborn diapers by signing up. Valid in the US & Canada.
Baby Registry programs that offer free goody bags
Target Baby Registry
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 Baby Registry
Walmart has a similar offering – open a registry and get a welcome box full of samples and coupons.
Buy Buy Baby Registry
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.
Enfamil Family Beginnings
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.
Similac Strong Moms
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).

Unfortunately the items on the entire first half of this list that use code "seaside2018" involve $15 shipping fees, so it's not really free. Still a good value for the right person, but would've saved me a lot of time clicking on each one of these if that had been disclosed up front. The way it is posted is very bate and switchy.

Hi Mamma Bear, thanks so much for your comment. I do actually mention at the beginning of the post (just above the first image) that you have to pay shipping and handling on the first set of freebies but I have added it in at the beginning of that section too in case it is missed the first time around. I do think those freebies are great value even with the shipping, especially things like the free baby mocs and also the customized stuff like the pacifiers and onesies - I love to give them as baby shower gifts now that my own two are too big!
