Comprehensive guide to the best free pregnancy and baby stuff

Free. Is there anything better than getting stuff for free? Free baby stuff especially since all those pregnancy and newborn expenses hit your wallet all within the same 9 months. Getting stuff without spending a dime is helpful.

The baby industry is big business. So much that companies love giving away free stuff to parents-to-be and hopefully gain a loyal customer in the future. Their marketing expense is your gain.

This list is updated whenever we get wind of another company giving out free stuff. If you know of one, let us know.

If you live in Canada, check out the comprehensive list of free pregnancy and baby stuff for Canadians.

The Free Stuff

Free, free, free! No strings attached.


Free baby welcome box - The mother of all online shopping sites gives away a free box of baby goodies and parenting e-book if you're a Prime member and 15% off everything on your baby registry a month before your due date. If you aren't a Prime Member, you still get 10% off anything on your baby registry — so definitely worth the effort to have a baby registry at Amazon, even if you aren't planning to use it. To start off, create a free baby registry. Check out the complete guide on how to get your free box of Amazon baby goodies to learn more.

Amazon Family/Prime 1 Month Free Trial - Lucky for you, if you don't have Amazon Prime but have been considering it for a while, perhaps a 1-month trial will persuade you? Free two-day shipping (or even faster sometimes!) on many items — much needed convenience for the busy parent. 20% off diapers and baby food with regular deliveries at an interval of your choosing. What's not to love?

The Baby Box Co.

Free baby box - If you're not familiar with baby boxes, they are originally from Finland and date back to the 1930's. They're a safe alternative to a crib or a bassinet when your baby is young.

To get a free baby box from the Baby Box Co., all you need to do is to watch a 15 minute and answer a few questions.
