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.

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:

As a young mother on a budget, I often found myself wondering how on earth I was going to afford all the many, many things a baby needed without robbing Peter to pay Paul. Six years and three children later, I have found there are so many amazing resources for free baby stuff out there that many parents don’t know about. I’ve made it a personal mission to help share the resources I’ve found with as many families as I can. From baby coupons to completely free items, there’s something on this list for everyone!
Pampers Diapers and Huggies have a rewards program. They have unique one time use codes found inside the packages of diapers and some wipes. Save those and enter them on their websites (after making an account-when you sign up for pampers you will get 100 pts) When you have a certain amount of points, you can cash in for Free rewards. There are a ton of different items, and they change them too. When I reached 1,000 points I cashed out for a Dora Potty Seat for my youngest! Yay!
