Free Baby Stuff

Middle-income families spend nearly $13,000, on average, for food, housing, health care, clothing and more in just the first year of a child’s life, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Expenditures on Children by Families annual report. Fortunately, there are a variety of freebies that can help keep down the costs of having a baby.

For example, families who feed their infants with formula can register with companies such as Similac to get free infant formula samples. Gerber offers a free baby nutrition kit. Sam’s Club offers free samples of its Simply Right diapers and wipes, and you can sign up with diaper manufacturers such as Pampers and Luvs to get free samples. Parents who create a baby-gift registry at Target receive free samples and $50 in coupon savings.
