Free Baby Boxes
Free sample boxes are great as they include a wide variety of products and new stuff to try out. These boxes usually contain a selection of different products including diapers, formula, moisturizers, baby lotion and baby shampoo.

Amazon is an excellent place to do some shopping due to the competitive prices, fast delivery (especially with Prime!) and huge range. It has pretty much everything your baby will need! So, it’s no doubt a very convenient place to create your baby registry.

2. Walmart Baby Registry
When you create a registry at Walmart, you’ll receive a Welcome Box containing free samples.
The prices at Walmart are quite low anyway, so it’s an amazing place to sign up with and they also offer a price match guarantee.

5. Baby Box University
To get free baby stuff, take a class and then take a quiz. This free baby box for California parents comes with different stuff inside such as diapers and breast milk storage packs.
Diapers are one of the items that cost new moms the most money. Babies use countless diapers, so you can never have enough diapers. Some new parents find that their newborn baby can require over 10 diaper changes a day!
Fortunately, many companies and brands out there offer parents free diapers. Now, here are some places you can look at if you want free diapers for your newborn.
6. Honest Company
The Honest Company’s diapers are eco-friendly, chlorine-free, easy on the eye but expensive. Fortunately, the brand offers moms free samples—so check them out before spending a small fortune.
7. Luvs Diapers
Sign up on the website and get year-round promotions, deals and an opportunity to win a 12-month diaper supply for your baby.
Want to give another diaper brand a shot? Cuties may be continuously offering free diaper samples, so be sure to sign up for its newsletters so you’re notified whenever they’ve got free ones.
9. National Diaper Bank
Consider approaching National Diaper Bank if you can’t afford diapers. This non-profit organization focuses on helping out low-income families.
The bank continues to grow along with its network, so you might find a bank near your area willing to give you free diapers.

Moreover, you also have the chance to win extra points by finishing tasks, such as sharing on Twitter and Facebook as well as taking surveys.

Free Baby Formula Samples
Baby formulas may cost as much as diapers in the baby’s first 12 months. Sometimes, whether through default or design, breastfeeding simply isn’t an option.
But baby formulas can cost up to $1,500, depending on which formula you buy. That figure is frightening for many parents, but there are several ways to try different baby formula for free, so that you know which one is right for you and your little angel:
Similac offers a rewards program called Strong Moms. This program sends samples and coupons based on your child’s needs and age. This will not only save your money but also save the energy and time spent working out what could be right for your child’s age.
Enfamil is one of the leading formula brands that are perfect for babies, and you’ll save lots of money if you get it for free. Join Enfamil Family Beginnings to get gifts worth up to $400 and a shot at winning free formula for one year.
17. Nature’s One
To get a baby formula for free, sign up online, browse products and select the “SKU” sample when you add your product into the shopping cart. Click the button that adds the free sample, answer a short survey, pay the shipping fee and wait for your items at home.
Gerber often gives out free coupons and formula samples, but if you sign up on their website and don’t get a free gift, try calling them to ask for free samples.
19. Nestle Baby
Sign up with Nestle Baby Club to receive free formula and other nutritional products Nestle currently offers.
On top of these bonuses, Nestle will send exclusive coupons, special offers, a feeding guide as well as so much more all year round.
20. Store Brand Formula
Visit StoreBrandFormula.com and register. The firm will give you a coupon for baby formula, helping you save at least $5.
When signing up, it shouldn’t shock you if the company has run out of coupons as they’re quite a hit with freebie lovers.
21. Ask Your Doctor
Many pediatricians store baby formula samples to hand out to parents. Many formula brands give away lots of free stuff to physician offices, hoping that loyal customers will get their products.
Feel free to ask your doctor’s office, clinic or hospital if they’ve got any free samples of a formula for you. Who knows, maybe they just happen to have an Aptamil Gold+ 1 Infant Formula or even Enfamil NeuroPro Ready to Feed Baby Formula Milk for you!
Free Baby Books
By the age of 3, almost 85% of the core structure of a baby’s brain is developed. That’s one of the chief reasons why you should read to your kids, even before they’re able to read on their own. And you can get the following free baby books by mail (or as e-books!) to read to your little one:
Kindle is a great place to look for free digital baby books. And you can save them on your mobile device, so they’re convenient when you’re on the go or traveling as well.
You’ll find a wide variety of free books in the Kindle library, which you can also sort by category. So, browse the list and choose a few baby books.
23. Imagination Library
From there, you’ll get a free age-appropriate book per month from when your baby is born up to age 5. If your area currently doesn’t have Imagination Library, you can help with starting a program.
24. Babies First Books
Once you visit BabiesFirstBooks.com, you’ll be asked to enter a promotional code in order to get five free books of your choice worth up to $40. Just enter the “OFFERS” code and get the books for free.
If five books aren’t enough for you, you’ll just have to pay an extra $3 per book. Awesome!
Other Free Stuff for Expecting Moms
There are numerous other ways to get baby freebies for moms-to-be. Here, we’ve rounded up different ways on how to get free stuff for your child, including a baby sling, baby shower and nursing pillow. Be sure to explore these avenues and grab some free stuff for your baby today!
25. Contact Companies Directly
This is a very simple method to get baby freebies.
If you like some brands or stores, contact them and tell them you’d like to sample some of their items. It’s best to email a specific store or brand, instead of sending a generic email to all brands or stores.
If you let a brand know that you love their range of products, then they could send you some free samples to try out. This may not always work, but it’s definitely worth a try.
26. Host a Baby Shower
A baby shower is a terrific way to get baby items for free.
Convince a friend or family member to throw a baby shower for you and invite everyone close to you. They’ll want to share in this happy moment and shower you with baby gifts!
27. Swap Your Other Items for Baby Freebies
Kid swaps or baby swaps happen when a bunch of parents meet and trade baby items they don’t need anymore with items they need. This can be a great chance to chuck out your old baby items and get some new baby stuff for free.
Organize one with your family members, friends, neighbours or workmates.
28. Free Baby Sling
If you need to carry your child around easily, Seven Baby can give you a free baby sling. Just enter the “FREESLING4ME” code and receive a $40 sling (and don’t forget to pick your favorite pattern!)
You’ll need to pay for handling and shipping though, but that’s chicken feed for a free baby sling (especially if the quality’s the same as Baby Wrap Carrier by KeaBabies)!
29. Free Nursing Pillow
If you want to nurse your baby, Nursing Pillows can get you comfortable and cozy. And with their $40 nursing pillow for free, it would be an awesome deal! Just use the “PJBABY” code to get a free pillow. You’ll only need to cover the shipping cost.
And just like free baby slings, you can also choose a pattern for your pillow.
30. Garage Sales
When garage sales are held, people often throw away items they don’t sell after the close of garage sales.
Visit garage sales that are ending and ask people for baby items they did not sell. Just ask and you might be pleasantly surprised by all the baby stuff you can get for free.
Babies can cost the earth, but it’s possible to make some savings with the right approach. We hope this guide helped you find out where to get free baby stuff!
You can even go the extra mile by reaching out to your favorite brands and ask for discounts or coupons. They might turn you down but it never hurts to try, and you won’t know until you ask.
There’s free baby stuff all around you – all you need to do is search for it!
