Krazy Coupon Lady
Let’s just state the obvious: Being a parent today is hella expensive. If you’re not trying to find diaper coupons, you’re wondering how you’ll save money on groceries this week, especially as egg prices continue to rival the cost of my mortgage (kidding, not kidding).
Back in 2010, I was a new mom with overdue medical bills, an out-of-work injured ex-husband and a family to feed. I clipped and couponed my way out of debt, and as the co-founder of The Krazy Coupon Lady, I’ve shared all my easiest, money-saving tips along the way. Parent-to-parent, I won’t bother you with the basics of how to save a few bucks. I want to get right to the good stuff: baby freebies.
Yep, freebies on diapers, wipes, food and formula are out there — but picking apart the duds from the MVPs is key. Since I’ve been hunting for freebies for over 10 years, I’ve gotten pretty good at finding the ones worth your while. These are the four best baby freebies, from samples to discounts, all of which have the big Krazy Coupon Lady stamp of approval:

Amazon gives you big rewards for starting a baby registry with them. To get your Amazon baby freebies, here’s what you have to do:
Important: The price for the box will be listed as $35. But once you add it to your cart, and your other items have shipped, you’ll see a little box for a $35 credit to click, making it free at checkout. Load up this registry with everything on your newborn checklist.
You’ll also receive a coupon worth 15% off any one order of items from your registry.
I joined a free program called Similac Rewards (it used to be called Similac StrongMoms Rewards) and received the following as my welcome gift:

I signed myself up for a free Noobie Box in a matter of seconds. All you have to do is add the Pregnancy Sample Bo to your cart and take the short quiz. You will have to pay $12.95 for shipping. But here’s the deal: Noobie Box promises one free baby box per mon-to-be per year, and they switch up the box periodically to let you know what’s in it.SDI Productions/ Getty Images
