If you have had a membership or have taken the trial before, you can still head HERE to get it for as low as $10.89 per month or $5.99 a month if you receive government benefits.

Baby Greeting. “The President sent me a card when I was born!” Don’t you kind of wish you could say that? With this little-known request form, your little one can make this boast! Just follow the link to the White House Presidential Greetings Request page and fill out the form to submit your request. For baby, you’ll have to wait until after delivery, but it must be done before little one’s first birthday. Be sure to save the envelope, as that is the only part where your child’s name will be.
Entertainment. There are days when you’re just too tired to mom anymore, when the baby has been up teething all night and you need just ten minutes of peace and quiet. Why not play that timeless children’s favorite, Sesame Street? It is a great educational program that keeps your little one quiet and content while you freshen up and grab a cup of coffee. (Hopefully not the same one you tried to drink yesterday.) Amazon is offering free downloads of some of the show’s seasons for a limited time, so download away and go get that cup of coffee—you deserve it, Mom!
Chances are that if you’re here you’re having a baby. Congratulations! There are several ways that you can save money on baby items, but my favorite way is to get in contact with the companies that master baby products so that you’re on their radar. Since they want you to fall in love with their products, companies like Pampers, Huggies, Everyday Happy Baby, Similac, The Honest Company and many, many more are more than happy to send free baby stuff by mail to get their products in your hands the first chance that they can get. Here are some of the freebies that you can get broken down by age:

2 Free Belly Button Bands ($42.50 value) – Any expectant momma knows that having a bit of support for her growing belly can do wonders. That’s why I love this baby sample! Grab 2 FREE Belly Button Bands for Momma when you head HERE. Shipping does apply. To get yours, head over HERE and use coupon code SIXDOLLARFAM5 at checkout to knock your price down to free.
Baby Art. It’s no secret that baby’s love to look at things. We’re also told again and again that looking at simple black and white pictures in their earliest days is helpful to their development. For the artistically challenged among us, that statement by our children’s doctors may be met with a wide-eyed, slightly horrified stare, but fear not! Baby Artsy has you covered with beautiful, free printable art for your baby to enjoy to her little heart’s content.

I read an article the other day that said it takes at least $277,000 to raise a child so there is no reason not to get an early start! Scoring free baby samples is just one way to prepare for a baby on a budget so make sure that you’re doing other things to prepare for your baby frugally.  You could start an investment account with Stash.

Babies might be little angels most of the time, but they sure do know how to clear out your wallet. I was in disbelief each time I packed up a diaper bag for a day trip or a suitcase for travel how much babies really do need. Don’t worry you will eventually find the perfect method to grab all your things, pack up and head out the door. The thing that really gets me is how much it costs to buy all these new “things” that your baby apparently needs. It’s all tiny, so it should be cheaper right? Wrong! Here’s the positive twist though, there are actually so many options for free baby stuff out there for moms and you should not be afraid to take advantage of them. We have pulled together some of the best freebies for moms out there all right here.
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!

Car Seat. A car seat is probably the most important item to get before your baby is born. It also happens to be one of the most expensive. One of the best places to go for an affordable car seat is the Safe Kids Network. Follow the link provided and search for a local coalition. Many have reduced price or free car seats. The site can also refers you to a local community agency.
When you sign up for the Dr. Seuss & His Friends book club subscription, you will get 4 books for $4.99 and no shipping costs. It is definitely a steal.
