She’s talking about the sling, pillow, leggings, etc post. They charge like $15 shipping… which is basically the price of one of those items on amazon. I did find out that if you leave the site after seeing that the shipping is ridiculous, they’ll text you saying they’ll drop it a few dollars… I finally went ahead and got the nursing pillow because they’re pretty expensive everywhere else, it was still a decent deal…. however, some of the other stuff, not so much.

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.
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. When you use THIS link they will either give you $5.00 free or 1 year of Stash free. You could learn how to earn free gift cards online over HERE. Gift cards that you earn online are a fantastic way to save money on buying the baby gear you need.
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.

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.
