Are you pregnant, a new mom or know someone who is? Here is a roundup of current pregnancy/baby freebies! Some of these make great, inexpensive gifts for those expecting mothers in your life! So here’s the list (and feel free to let me know if you have any to add!)
(I’ve added a section at the bottom of this post for freebies, deals, samples, and trial offers that are not directly pregnancy related, but might be beneficial to you as well!)
Create a Free Amazon Baby Registry and receive a Welcome Box! According to Amazon, for a limited time, starting November 26, 2016, the box will include SwaddleDesigns blanket, a Philips Avent 4oz baby bottle, a full pack of Elements sensitive wipes, a baby toy from Kids II or Oball and more inside. Directions will appear on your registry dashboard after you create it.
If you’re a sports fan, you’ve got to check out LittleFans.com
They sell NFL and NCAA branded baby items like pacifiers, shoes, bibs, cups, bottles, etc. While you will have to pay shipping and handling (usually around $13), if you use code FALLFREEBIE19 at checkout, you’ll receive $35 off your order. And you can use it as many times as you want. With the code, you can definitely score some free items (+ S&H) or almost free items, depending on what you pick out.
New customers can get 101 FREE 4×6 photo prints from Shutterfly! Perfect for all those pics of your new little one!
Note: Shipping is not included.
Pregnancy & Newborn Package
These are some of my favorite freebies! Everything in the photo above is FREE with the coupon code. The catch? You have to pay shipping. I know, that technically doesn’t mean it’s “free,” but the item itself is free, and it makes them a lot less expensive than the name brand counterparts. Shipping varies depending on the item, but is usually around $10. Here are the links to each of the items.
Use code FALLFREEBIE19 for all of them:
Note: Codes can be used as many times as you want in separate transactions!
Earth Mama's Free Birth Plan
Use Earth Mama’s Free Birth Plan generator to simplify the process of mapping out your desires for your baby’s birth. This is also a great tool to knowing about options you may not have known about or considered yet, as they are all listed for you to choose from. Once you’ve completed it online, it will be emailed to you to print out. Give a copy to your doctors, midwives, birth team, family, etc. This will help ensure everyone is on the same page.
When I completed my birth plan, it gave me a coupon code for 15% off! Did you get one?
Similac Strong Moms
I have strong opinions about commercial formula, but I am writing about the Similac Strong Moms program because they send you $20 to Shutterfly for Baby Announcements, and that was worth me signing up for a FREE account. They will also send you sample cans of formula, which I’ve just donated in the past.
As a side note, if your baby can’t breastfeed and you want an alternative to commercial formulas, check out Beautiful Babies: Nutrition for Fertility, Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, and Baby’s First Food. It’s a wonderful book full of practical information, and there’s a great recipe for homemade baby formula in it as well.

Simply reply to the text message and Qeepsake records your answer in a journal entry. You can have multiple journals for multiple children, and best of all, you order your Qeepsake entries in book form whenever you’d like! It’s such a simple way to created a custom baby book!

All your entries are saved and accessible regardless of which plan you choose, so you don’t have to worry about losing any of your journal entries! I’m really enjoying my Qeepsake membership for keeping track of memories for my three kiddos!
Welcome Gift Bags
Planning on starting a baby registry somewhere? Several stores offer “Welcome Gift Bags” for registering with them, including Target and Babies R Us. I haven’t personally gotten one from Babies R Us (I didn’t register in-store with them when I was pregnant with C), but I did receive one for registering in-store with Target. My welcome pack included coupons for tons of items including bottles, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, maternity clothing, swaddle blankets, nursing tanks, and more. There was also a $20 Shutterfly voucher in the bag (my favorite!), as well as disposable nursing pads, a sample diaper and wipes set, and sample baby care products. I’m sure each location will vary a little bit, but it was worth it to me to pick one up (and it’s free, so why not?). I haven’t registered for this baby yet, so I’m not sure what exactly comes in the current pack, but I did call my local Target store and they confirmed that each store does it. Just go to guest services and ask to register. They will help you set up the registry and the little scanner gun. If they don’t hand you a welcome pack, just ask. Sometimes they might forget.
The Honest Company
Get a FREE trial bundle from The Honest Company! Just paying shipping, which is $5.98. The bundles include the following:
Trial Size Honest Shampoo & Body Wash, Lotion, Laundry Detergent, Healing Balm, Hand Soap, and sample diapers and wipes to try.

Tip: When deals like this come up and require enrolling in a subscription program, I always add an event in my calendar on my phone with the customer service number and set the reminder for a few days before the last day to cancel. This allows me to try deals without worry of forgetting to cancel!
FREE Women’s, Maternity & Kids’ Clothing with FREE $10 Credit!
Have you ever heard of thredUP? It’s basically an online consignment shop for kids and women’s clothing, shoes and accessories. I LOVE thredUP and have purchased 95% off C & E’s clothes for the past 3 years off of the site, as well as some clothes for myself. Great brands at great prices, and I don’t have to go search through the racks at the local thrift or consignment shop with two kids!
All items are in new or like new condition. If something has a small flaw, it will be marked by “Tiny Flaw.” And there are plenty of items that are new with tags also! I’ve gotten baby clothes new with tags for baby shower gifts and no one would ever know I bought them at a discount!
If you’ve never signed up for a FREE thredUP account before, sign up through this link and get $10 credit! You’ll get $10 off your first order! There are tons of items under $10, so that makes for free items! Just pay shipping, which is a flat rate of $5.99 or FREE on purchases of $70 or more!

I love sleep, but when I was pregnant, it was so hard to get comfortable. I would toss and turn all night. I eventually used a body pillow for some relief, but this new pregnancy pillow looks amazing and has support for your belly, back and legs also. These retail for $89-$99, depending on the fabric, but if you use code FALLFREEBIE19 at checkout, you’ll save $50!
