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). Affiliate links are used in this post, earning me a referral at no additional cost to you.
For any of these that require paying S&H or are on a trial basis, first 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 – remember to decide whether you wish to continue the service.
Free Resources 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!

Similac Strong Moms
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.
Join Pampers Rewards and earn points on purchases for free gifts.
Create a Baby Registry
Amazon, 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.
Start a Target Baby Registry here!
Create an Amazon Baby Registry and get the welcome box.
You can also get these free Behavior Charts for various stages of development.
Baby Gear – Carseat Canopy, Seven Slings, Udder Covers, Breast Pads, Nursing Pillow, Baby Leggins, Belly Button Band
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 seats to keep the germs away.
Baby Carrier Sling
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. Soft and lightweight.
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.
