Breastfeeding is a wonderful bonding experience for mom and baby. I certainly enjoyed every moment of this special relationship with my babies while it lasted. As a new mom, there were things I didn’t know I would need for breastfeeding. Those costs added up quickly. Thankfully, there are many companies that give out free stuff for moms. Here are a few of my favorites. Please note that you may still need to pay for shipping fees.
5 Free Pair of Baby Leggings ($50.00 Value) – Chubby baby legs look so cute in leggings so this may be one of my favorite baby samples on this list! Head over HERE and you can score not one, but FIVE free pairs of baby leggings! They have a boatload of designs to choose from! Shipping does apply, but even with it, these are still totally worth it! To get yours, head over HERE and use coupon code SIXDOLLARFAM5 at checkout to knock your price down to free.
The sample contains a pack of either baby-shaped or snug and dry style diapers. You will be able to choose which diaper pack you would prefer to sample after you’ve finished the survey, as well as any extras or coupons that are available. A really handy freebie, especially for the moms out there! You can also sign up with Pampers Rewards program by clicking here!
As your pregnancy progresses, make sure that you think about other ways to save money so you can have your baby on a budget. You’ll want to take a look at how to create a personal budget if you haven’t already. You’ll also want to decide whether you should use cloth diapers and if cloth diapers can save you money or not (hint: they won’t save every family money). You’ll also want to make sure that you don’t overbuy items for your baby since doing so can cause you major financial trouble. When you’re buying the items you need for your new baby, keep these 10 items you really need for baby in mind so that you don’t overspend. You also may want to check out these 30 things to stop buying and make since they will help you cut your household expenses significantly.
This one requires a little more strategy. Sign up at The Honest Company for a free trial or two. (We recommend the latter to make the most of the $5.95 shipping cost.) You can opt into a diapers and wipes bundle as well as an essentials package, which contains lotions, surface cleaners and hand soap. Just make sure to cancel your membership within seven days, or else you’ll be charged for a monthly subscription.
Baby Greeting. “The President sent me a card when I was born!” Don’t you kind of wish you could say that? With this little-known request form, your little one can make this boast! Just follow the link to the White House Presidential Greetings Request page and fill out the form to submit your request. For baby, you’ll have to wait until after delivery, but it must be done before little one’s first birthday. Be sure to save the envelope, as that is the only part where your child’s name will be.
Baby Art. It’s no secret that baby’s love to look at things. We’re also told again and again that looking at simple black and white pictures in their earliest days is helpful to their development. For the artistically challenged among us, that statement by our children’s doctors may be met with a wide-eyed, slightly horrified stare, but fear not! Baby Artsy has you covered with beautiful, free printable art for your baby to enjoy to her little heart’s content.
When you sign up for the Dr. Seuss & His Friends book club subscription, you will get 4 books for $4.99 and no shipping costs. It is definitely a steal. Dr. Seuss books are classic and I love my bedtime memories of reading them with my kids. Make sure to cancel the subscription, which is a piece of cake to do online to prevent this from becoming a recurring charge. Here’s the link to register.
Do you have a baby coming or maybe someone in your family does? We have lots of grandparents and parents requesting free baby samples every month. We spend hours searching the web for free baby stuff and we compile a list of baby freebies. Most companies give out free samples because they secretly hope to get you addicted to their brand. There are so many different diapers, formula, wipes and all other kids of baby stuff out there.
Free Breast Pump. In a world of two-income households, many breastfeeding mothers find themselves in need of expensive breast pumps when maternity leave is over. With decent pumps costing anywhere from $100 or more, mothers living on a budget often give up their breastfeeding relationship. Good news! The Affordable Care Act now requires insurance companies to cover lactation consultations and breast pump rentals without co-pays or deductibles. If you are a breastfeeding mother in need of a breast pump, please follow the linked guide to learn how to take advantage of this part of the Care Act.
