Babies are expensive and that is why I am happy to share some Free Stuff for New Moms! While we all love our children unconditionally, yet most of us had to make some major changes to make sure we can still have the ends meet. About a month before I had my daughter (she was the first of my three kids), my husband lost his job and joined me at home where I was spending the end of my pregnancy on medical leave. Talking about stressful time!
I suddenly found myself doubting everything and anything: how was planning to afford basic expenses with no income coming in. And while the new addition to our family was truly a life to change and I couldn’t wait to become a parent for the first time, the cost to have a little one was truly terrifying. Who knew something that small could drain your wallet that much?
However, even if you are not fearing how to pay your next electrical bill, the ideas I am listing below are quick and clever ways of getting free and deeply discounted products from the certain companies.
Free Stuff for New Moms
Check out our top tips for getting free stuff for new moms with little effort. From the much-needed breast pump to magazines and baby items, this list has a ton of tips on how to save money for your family when a new little one arrives!
Breast pumps can be very expensive and they are a must have if you plan on breastfeeding your baby, but also plan to go back to work. Most people don’t know that a breast pump can be covered by your insurance. Call your insurance to see if your plan covers breast pumps, ask your OBGYN to write you a prescription and make sure you specify which model you would like and then have your doctor’s office fax the provider the prescription.
Nursing pillows are great not just for nursing – they also help with tummy time and helping your little one learn how to sit up properly. You can get a free nursing pillow. You still need to pay for shipping, but that doesn’t beat getting a nursing pillow for free.
Save your diaper codes
If you are looking to get some cool free stuff, whether it is for your little one or even for yourself, stick to a diaper brand that you love and save their reward codes. For all the reward codes you save, you can purchase something awesome out of their rewards catalog – From items for your kids(like fun toys) to things for yourself (like a Starbucks gift card or a magazine subscription). Whatever diapers you are using, there is most likely a reward program to go with it – check out the website.

An essential item for any breastfeeding mom, because nobody likes leaky boobs. Just like with the nursing pillow site, pay to ship and get 10 free pairs of pads. They have them in different colors, but here is a hint – get a bunch in the same color and avoid match game – you will have enough to worry about. This is one of my favorite free items for new moms, because no matter if you are breast or bottle feeding, these will come in handy. Psst! Everyone leaks for a few days after giving birth!
They have the cutest designs and they are yours for free with paid shipping! Baby carriers will save you a ton of time and frustration when your baby just wants to be held but you need to do the dishes!
