Yes, that’s right! You can get free bottles, burp cloths, toys, diapers, samples, and much more for your little one. If you’re currently expecting or even if you’ve already given birth, here are some ways to score some awesome freebies:
You don’t have to actually use the registry once you’ve signed up – you can decide which one you want to use later. Almost all registries will reward you just for signing up with a bag full of goodies such as bottles, blankets, burp cloths, toys, and free samples:
Amazon Baby Registry – this one is my favorite because their welcome box is the best and the registry is so easy to manage from home. Amazon also keeps track of all of your gift-givers’ names and addresses so it’s easy to send thank you notes (I LOVE THIS)!! In addition, anything you add to your registry that is sold and shipped by Amazon is eligible for a 10% completion discount after your baby’s due date.
Target– this is my second favorite because they give you a nifty re-usable bag that’s great for creating a portable diaper bag for your car and you can find practically anything at Target to put on your registry. You’ll have to go to the store to get your free goody bag but it’s totally worth it (Try not to go on a Target spending spree while you’re there! I know it’s hard to resist!).
Babies R Us – This bag had some great bottles and samples and I love looking around at all the cute new baby items when I’m there. You can sign up for your registry online but you’ll need to go to the store to get your free goody bag. (Note: Toys R Us just announced that they are closing all of their stores so go ahead and sign-up to get the free goodie bag but I recommend using a different company for your registry.)
Sign-up with as many diaper brands as you can and request free samples. Some companies that send free diapers and wipes are The Honest Company, Everyday Happy, and Simply Right. Take advantage of rewards programs too and get even more free stuff! Pampers and Huggies both have a good rewards program that you can sign-up for and will even send a free sample when you register.
If times are really rough and you need a little more assistance, you can contact The National Diaper Network and ask about receiving a donation of diapers.

Ask Friends and Family
Most of my baby’s clothes were hand-me-downs from my friends. Baby’s outgrow clothes so fast that almost everything I received looked brand new! Once you’re finished with the clothes, save them for the next baby, donate, or give them away to your friends who are also having babies.
Now grab yourself a much deserved coffee or tea and enjoy all your new found free stuff!
