Inside: Having a baby is expensive, so why not grab all the free baby products you can, right? Find a huge list of totally free baby stuff here. Plus, banish overwhelm when getting ready for baby by reading this guide.
Did you know it’s estimated that parents will spend approximately $12,000 on their baby in the very first year?!
And that is according to a report from 2012.
So guess what?
Things aren’t getting any cheaper my friends.
There are a ton of things you need for a baby (although I simplified my top baby registry picks here), but there are also loads of ways to save money when you’re planning for a baby.
Below I’ve collected my favorite ways to save money on baby products, get some free baby samples and products and take your blood pressure down a few notches.
Baby Registries With Perks
Amazon Baby Registry
Amazon baby registry tops my list because of all the amazing freebies they give you when you register. I wrote an entire post on Amazon baby registry benefits here. Here are some of my favorite highlights:
- Free Welcome Box that includes (at the time of writing) a baby blanket, baby bottle, wipes, toys and more!
- 15% off registry completion for Amazon Prime members (or 10% off if you’re not a prime member)
- 90-day returns
- Chance to win $2250 for creating a registry
Target Baby Registry
Target baby registry is another fabulous choice since there’s bound to be a local store not far from you. Check out the free baby things (worth $60) you get when you create a registry with them:
- free reusable bag
- free diaper samples
- free wipes sample
- free baby care samples
- tons of coupons for baby-related products
Buy Buy Baby Registry
Like most of the retailers, Buy Buy Baby also has some great perks for creating a registry including:
- Free gift bag with samples including diapers, wipes, baby lotion, nursing pads, coupons and more!
- Ask A Friend registry tool: lets you have your friends and family suggest baby registry must-haves
- Referral program: refer a friend who signs up to create a registry of their own and you’ll receive a $25 off $100 coupon
Kohls Baby Registry
Kohls baby registry incentives include:
- 15% off any registry items that weren’t purchased as gifts (valid for 3 months after due date)
- Free announcement cards to put in with your baby shower invitations
Babies R Us Baby Registry
Babies R Us offers a few unique incentives for creating a registry with them like:

Walmart Baby Registry Perks
When you sign up for a baby box at Walmart, you’re able to get a welcome box delivered to your home filled with pregnancy and baby related samples.
Pottery Barn Kids
While PBK may not be the first registry people think of, if you’re contemplating buying anything there it’s worth signing up for their registry since you’ll receive 20% off any registry leftovers!
Diaper Freebies & Samples
Honest Company: If you sign up for the Honest Company’s trial membership you can receive free diapers and wipes or a free baby essentials kit.
You will have to pay for shipping ($5.95) and after enrolling will need to cancel if you don’t want to be charged for a monthly subscription of baby goods.
Sam’s Club: When you sign up for their Mom’s & Dad’s club you’ll receive a collection of free samples, discounts, and special offers.
Motherhood Maternity Free Samples: When you sign up for their Perks Savings Club, you’ll receive up to $400 worth of samples, coupons and offers from Motherhood Maternity and their partners.
Thyme Maternity: Sign up for their Bump Benefits and get up to $345 worth of sample and coupons from a whole host of pregnancy and baby related companies.
Pampers: If you’re already using Pampers diapers then you need to sign up for Pampers Rewards. When you log the codes on your Pampers diapers and wipes into the system, you’ll earn reward points that you can use towards free products and high-value coupons. You can even earn more points by watching videos, reading articles and more!
Huggies: Huggies also has a new and improved rewards system! Instead of manually inputting the codes each time you buy their products, now all you have to do is snap a picture of your receipt with the Huggies Rewards app and your points are automatically generated.
Seventh Generation: Similar to the Honest Company, Seventh Generation will send you a trial of their diaper and wipes for free (you still pay $5.95 shipping costs). There is, however, no auto subscription when you sign up for their trial.
Baby Products For Free

Mother’s Lounge Free Products
The parent company Mother’s Lounge offers a wide range of free baby products. All you have to do is pay for shipping and you’re set. I originally wondered if they were a scam, but I’m happy to say I personally ordered the car seat canopy with my first son and loved it!
