As a new mother or mom-to-be, you know how fast the cost of essentials like formula, diapers and wipes adds up. Scoring discounts on those supplies is a must. The good news is that many companies offer baby freebies for new moms and those who are expecting.
But don’t spend time searching for these deals; you’ve got enough to keep you busy. We did the digging ourselves! Now, to take advantage of these, you will need to spend a bit of time signing up for offers and rewards programs. But the effort is well worth the products you’ll earn for your baby and yourself.
1. Amazon Baby Registry Welcome Box
Sign up for a baby registry on Amazon, and if you’re a Prime member, you’ll get a Welcome Box and host of other benefits. For example, you’ll earn a 15% discount for completing your registry, 20% off a diaper subscription and the ability to return items for free for 90 days.
Once you’ve added products to your registry and a $10 purchase is made (either by you or a friend), Amazon will send you the Welcome Box—no need to even leave your house. The items within vary, but some moms have received full-size Amazon wipes, Babyganics lotion, books, snacks and multivitamins.
2. Free Enfamil
Enfamil is a top formula brand ideal for many babies, and getting it for free will save you a substantial amount of money. Sign up for Enfamil Family Beginnings for up to $400 in gifts and a chance to win free formula for a year.
3. Target Baby Registry Gift Bag
When you create a baby registry at Target, you get a free welcome kit with samples (diapers, bottle, pacifier and more) and $50 worth of coupons.

6. Free Diapers and Household Essentials From The Honest Company
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.)

Just make sure to cancel your membership within seven days, or else you’ll be charged for a monthly subscription.
