Free Baby Items and How to Get Them

It is a very joyous and exciting time to welcome a new baby to the world for all parents who are expecting, but it also can seem very overwhelming trying to adapt your finances to your new family situation. 

In this guide, we will be showing you how you can capitalize on all of the free baby items that are available so that you won’t have to worry as much and you can enjoy spending more quality time with your beautiful new baby.

Free baby products – why do companies and brands give free baby stuff away?

Companies want your baby and you to try their products out for free and provide you with support during those important early months in order to introduce you to their products and brand. Their goal is, of course, to turn you into a loyal customer of theirs. 

There is so much competition these days and new baby brands are launching on a daily basis and giving baby freebies away to draw attention to their companies in hopes that you will select them instead of their competitors when you are ready to buy your next pack of diapers or jars of baby food. 

Where can I find free baby items?

Most supermarkets and baby brands have Baby Clubs of their own that offer websites and freebies that provide support.  There are also many independent websites like Mumsnet and Emma’s Diary where there are lots of free giveaways, coupons and more that are featured on these sites.   

A majority of these websites will require that you register an account with them in order to reap the rewards or benefits, but that is fine since sign up is 100% free.  Many will send a starter pack to you with free baby things to help you in your new found role as a mother. 

Each website will work somewhat differently, for example, the Mumsnet site is actually a forum, so the best thing to do is follow threads where mothers are posting about the baby freebies they have found and search for testing opportunities and competitions

Mumsnet usually hosts them, but other parents also post about competitions that are on other websites. 

Your Baby Club along with many other baby sites find all of the best baby deals for you and then post them all in one place.

It is definitely worthwhile signing up to all of the sites on our list below since there is an abundance of free baby items that can be claimed from various websites.
