As your pregnancy progresses, make sure that you think about other ways to save money so you can have your baby on a budget. You’ll want to take a look at how to create a personal budget if you haven’t already. You’ll also want to decide whether you should use cloth diapers and if cloth diapers can save you money or not (hint: they won’t save every family money). You’ll also want to make sure that you don’t overbuy items for your baby since doing so can cause you major financial trouble. When you’re buying the items you need for your new baby, keep these 10 items you really need for baby in mind so that you don’t overspend. You also may want to check out these 30 things to stop buying and make since they will help you cut your household expenses significantly.
Amazon is a close second to Target when it comes to my favorite things in life. Did you know you can register for your baby shower through Amazon too? If you have Amazon Prime just register and spend $10, then you get to pick out a free baby stuff welcome box to be sent to your doorstep. The items in the welcome box are typically valued around $35, so it’s a pretty great deal!
Baby Carrier. My baby carrier is my best friend. It has proved a wonderful resource on outings with my little ones, especially during those first few months. With it, I can travel without the hassle and bulk of a stroller. It also helped me keep my baby close to me and away from unwanted germs. Use the code ENBABY in the Seven Slings site  to avail of a free baby carrier.

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.

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.
Giving Diapers, Giving Hope. This is perhaps my favorite of the free diaper finds. This site provides lower income families with free cloth diapers. There is an application and approval process, but if your budget is truly tight, this is a wonderful program to look into. I used it myself with my first baby and found the diapers I was sent were in excellent shape and lasted well beyond my baby’s need for them.
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.
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.
