Babies can be expensive, and free baby stuff, like free baby samples and coupons, can help make it a little cheaper!
I am the typical frugal mom, which means I constantly look for ways to get free stuff, free samples, and coupons to help me save money on everything!
As a mom, I know that having a baby is expensive, and you need so much stuff! The list can be endless, from baby gear to diapers, toys, baby clothes, books for the baby, toiletries and nursing gear, and parenting books for you!
Nothing makes me happier than helping people get free stuff! Raising a baby can be expensive, and I firmly believe that the more free things you get, the better off you are. So here are some of the ways you can get some free baby stuff and free baby items.
Downsides to Free Baby Stuff
Many of the free items you can receive from companies and programs come with a “price tag.” This is because you give your personal information to companies who can do it as they wish. I, personally, am ok with that, but you should be aware of that before signing up for these free samples and free baby stuff.
If you are more cautious about your personal information, consider opening a new email address specifically for signing up for freebies and samples. You can also slightly change your kid’s names and birthdates to protect your info further.
Getting Free Baby Samples I Don’t Need
There are many times when I get freebies and samples that I honestly have no use for. When this happens, I either unsubscribe from the programs or take the items and pass them along to others. You can give them to neighbors, post on Buy Nothing Groups, donate to Little Free Libraries or Pantries, or give them to a food bank or shelter.
Everything on this list is FREE! I didn’t include any of those “pay a lot of money for shipping and handling free” type deals or baby subscription boxes that you have to pay for. Just go on through the list and sign up for whatever you want (I signed up for all of them!)
How to Get Free Baby Stuff and Free Baby Samples

Of course, Amazon has a baby registry! The Amazon baby registry is excellent, not only because Amazon has everything, but because they make it super easy for people to send you gifts.
