Congratulations! You’re expecting or just had a new baby. You’re exhausted, but so happy, right? There’s so much to do, a lot of planning involved, and tons of supplies you need to collect.
New Moms certainly have a lot on our plates. It certainly helps to have access to freebies and great information. Check out this list of freebies for new moms and see if anything interests you.
Free Baby Stuff for Expecting and New Moms
I have compiled a list of free items, some free trials, some that may require paying shipping and handling (S&H), some that require participation to redeem, and some reduced price items (I call them cheapies). For any of these that require paying S&H or are on a trial basis, do evaluate whether you even need this item. If you do, snag it because this is a great opportunity. But if not, skip it. And for those free trials – be sure to set a calendar note to remind yourself to decide whether you wish to continue the service before the free trial is up.
Free Resources and Tips for New Moms
Joining the Enfamil Family is a journey with helpful developmental milestone emails for your baby’s first two years, plus a ton of freebies!
The freebies include the following:
-12.5 oz infant formula (newborn, up to 3 months old)
-12.4 oz infant formula (through 12 months old)
-4 single serve infant formula packets
-1 feeding guide pamphlet
-2 coupons for $5 off any infant formula product
-1 coupon for 30% off + Free Shipping at Tiny Prints (great for birth announcements)
You can get a similar kit from Similac Strong Moms. I suggest both. Why? More goodies, try both types of formula, you never know what will work better for your baby, and you may not be able to breastfeed 100% (I had to supplement). Similac Strong Moms program includes personalized gifts and up to $329 in savings and benefits.

Create Baby Registry – Target, Babies R Us and BuyBuy Baby all give you a gift bag when you create a registry. Creating a registry is free, and you get tons of free samples and coupons to use. I believe you have to do so in person, though.
The items below are all free but require paying S&H. But the S&H is still cheaper than the item itself (if purchased from a physical store) so are still worth it.
Use the code PJBABY for any of these deals.
- Free Carseat Canopy – useful especially to cover newborns in their car seat to keep the germs away.
- Free baby sling from Seven Slings #wearallthebabies
- Free nursing cover from Udder Covers
- Free nursing pads from Breast Pads – helps with leakiness, and also the cottony softness is soothing to sensitive nipples
- Free nursing pillow.
- Free baby leggings – who needs pants when you can add leggings to a onesie?
- Free Belly Button Band to help your pants fit longer – I loved this one! Just attach it to your pants buttons and done.
The following offers require some sort of participation to receive the free items.
