Sign up for marketing promotions to enjoy a free baby box
There are loads of companies out there that offer a baby box for free that is filled with loads of goodies. It might have free samples, coupons and deals. It might have other promotions too.

Baby Registry Set Up
This is a fantastic way to enjoy baby discounts, gifts and more from retailers when you’re due to give birth. It’s also great as it lets family and friends know what to purchase for you and baby. A registry set up means you can earn rewards and other free baby stuff. Companies can send a welcome pack of goodies too.
Enjoy freebies from family and friends
This is often overlooked by new mums but one way to enjoy baby stuff for free is through friends and family. Babies may only use certain things once or twice so they are usually as good as new for a long period of time. This means older mums are happy to give away items to new mums.
Check in with friends and family if they have anything or know people who are looking to get rid of older baby stuff. It could be cribs, prams or clothes. All the pennies matter when starting a family so every free item could make a difference. Anyway, you’re helping friends out by making space in their home.
You could also get items discounted if you’re not willing to ask for them to give items away for free. It could be awkward so saying you would pay avoids this. Anyway, for a good used item you’re still saving money.
It is also vital to do background checks to make sure any items that you are gifted don’t have any safety glitches.
Ask for Baby Formula Samples
This is another strategy overlooked. Formula can become expensive over time. So asking for baby formula samples from the hospital, paediatrician and supermarkets should be considered. This is good for you and baby too as you find out your babies preferences of formula as they can be fussy at times. By contacting companies directly through their website they can offer free samples by signing up to a mailing list.
Get free diapers
Getting free diapers in the form as of free baby stuff is easy. It’s just about doing the proper research to get the ball rolling. By joining reward programs, mailing lists of diaper companies like Huggies or requesting free samples directly are a few ways of getting free diapers for your baby.

Be even more bold by calling the customer services department of these companies saying you’re really keen to try their products. If you have a big social following this could be another way to get a constant funnel of free baby stuff.
