Breastfeeding is a wonderful bonding experience for mom and baby. I certainly enjoyed every moment of this special relationship with my babies while it lasted. As a new mom, there were things I didn’t know I would need for breastfeeding. Those costs added up quickly. Thankfully, there are many companies that give out free stuff for moms. Here are a few of my favorites. Please note that you may still need to pay for shipping fees.
Free Breast Pump. In a world of two-income households, many breastfeeding mothers find themselves in need of expensive breast pumps when maternity leave is over. With decent pumps costing anywhere from $100 or more, mothers living on a budget often give up their breastfeeding relationship. Good news! The Affordable Care Act now requires insurance companies to cover lactation consultations and breast pump rentals without co-pays or deductibles. If you are a breastfeeding mother in need of a breast pump, please follow the linked guide to learn how to take advantage of this part of the Care Act.

Nature’s One. This is a company committed to providing the best formula and foods for your baby well into her toddler years,. You can try their product for free through the link provided. While the PediaVance ships for free, other sample products do require a minimal shipping fee. If your little one is lactose intolerant, there is a sample product for you—Baby’s Only Organic LactoRelief.

Hi I love your website! Wish I’d found it a lot sooner. One excellent resource I’ve been using is called Care Net. It’s a nationwide network of pregnancy/parenting centers. It’s a Christian organization but open to those of any religion and very non-judgmental/non-proselytizing. They’re COMPLETELY free with no catch. They’re a privately funded program so there’s no government involvement whatsoever. They offer free pregnancy tests, free ultrasounds, and parenting classes. The parenting classes are part of the Earn While You Learn program-you basically attend a class every week for an hour and earn points you redeem in their “mart” for whatever your baby needs. The MOPS group (mothers of preschoolers) is also a lot of fun and great way to meet other moms and let my little guy play with others his age. Thought I’d pass along the info.
Shutterfly. The earliest days of my kids’ lives are a blur in my memory. Thank goodness I have so many photos to remember them by! By signing up for a Shutterfly account, I got 50 free 4×6 photos, a photo magnet, and a free set of address labels (which was handy, because by the time my oldest slept through the night, I was so tired, I couldn’t remember our address!). Shutterfly also offers free, unlimited storage for as long as you keep your membership. If you’re anything like me, you’ll need that storage!
Did you enjoy this list? I hope you found it helpful! As a young mother on a budget, I learned quickly how much a dollar saved can mean. It’s a joy to pass on the knowledge and savings I’ve acquired over the years to other new moms. Share your thoughts in the comments—are there any savings you have come across not listed here? Any that you didn’t know about and were happy to see? Don’t forget to share the list with your friends and family!

Surprise Package of Goodies. When you join Amazon Prime and create a Baby Registry, you’ll become eligible for a Welcome Box valued at $35. The only catch is that you must either buy a $10 item or wait for someone to purchase something off your registry before the Welcome Box will be shipped to you. Once that is done, click the Claim Now button to add the Welcome Box to your cart. The box changes monthly, so the contents are truly a surprise, but Amazon claims it contains items for both parents and baby.
