The most expensive aspect of your life is going to be babies. Babies need diapers, babies need formula, and babies even need a whole array of accessories that I had never even heard of until I was pregnant. Who knew that babies needed their wipes warmed, or that they made rubber ducks that judge bath water temperature. I am sure any of us who have children know that the money we put into baby items can accumulate to thousands of dollars in absolutely no time. That is why it is so important to keep your eyes peeled for free items for both baby and mom. Many new moms won't know about these things being available for free, so I have made it my duty to put together a list of items that baby and mama can get at absolutely no cost. These programs even seem to change annually or so, so if you have more babies you can apply to receive the freebie packs again.
Sign up for the Nestle Baby Canada Program to receive up to $130 in free items and coupons for both baby & mama. Thanks to Nestle we got our hands on lots of cool items for free like a diaper bag, formula, Lansinoh cream and more. The diaper bag was great for my significant other. It carried everything he needed for baby and it didn't even look girly. The bag is a touch different this year, but I kind of like the new style even better. Three years later, we still use it! The Nestle Baby Canada Program includes the following items:
- Up to $20 in Nestlé Materna coupons, an infant formula sample and other infant nutrition samples
- Newly re-designed, stylish Nestlé Baby Bag with change pad
- The Nestlé Start Healthy, Stay Healthy™ Baby Feeding Guide
- Customized emails with tips, online tools, and videos
- Exclusive savings and more!
This Enfamil Family Beginnings Freebies Program is very similar to the Nestle offer mentioned above, but the more freebies the merrier.. right? This program seems to change up more often and offers between $160 and $300 worth of freebies and coupons depending on the time of year you sign up. Right now it looks like you will receive $160 in coupons, free samples, formula and other special offers. Enfamil is actually the brand of formula I went with when I couldn't breast feed any longer, and I totally recomment their products.

If you are planning on breast feeding, then you might enjoy having an Udder Cover. I had one for family events and such, and I loved it. I am a little shy so I didn't really want to boast my ta-ta's everywhere while breast feeding. But at least this way my baby still got all of the beautiful nutrients, and I didn't have to show off more than I wanted to. There is a coupon code for this offer:
- Coupon Code: UDDERMOOSE
- Discount: Free udder cover
All you have to pay is the shipping fee! These Udder Covers would normally cost $45, so you can imagine the thought of a new mom getting one for free. Exciting right? There are a few offers available similar to this one, they are listed below.
Every baby needs a carrier, but why not get one for free with our exclusive coupon code? Use our Bargainmoose promo code to get a free baby sling from SevenSlings.com. Here's the code:
- Coupon Code: SEVENMOOSE
- Discount: Free baby carrier
Like the offer above, all you need to pay is the shipping & handling charges.
I loved that I was able to breast feed my infant, but man it could get hard on my back and arms. Once I purchased a nursing pillow, all my problems were solved. Well now all your problem can be solved for free thanks to this exclusive Bargainmoose discount voucher to get a free nursing pillow from NursingPillow.com. Here's the code:
- Coupon Code: PILLOWMOOSE1
- Discount: Free nursing pillow
You will need to cover the shipping charges though.
BreastPads.com happens to have a coupon code available, similar to the three offers below. You can use the code VALBP at the check out process to get 10 breast pads for totally free - all you have to pay is shipping. I have to say, the only annoying part to breast feeding was constantly having to change the pads in my bra. Before I had my son I never thought to buy breast pads, I had to learn the hard way. Hopefully I get to you before you go in for delivery and have to scramble to get good quality breast pads!
Magnetstreet happens to be giving away 3 free fridge magnets per person as samples. You can select 3 magnets and have them completely customized for free. I posted this offer previously and one of our readers mentioned that they are more a sample option, and you don't get to choose your own photo. From what I can tell, it appears you can.
