Moms-to-be and new parents can usually sign up for free samples and a gift packs from some of the major baby brands, such as Huggies or Similac, notes each brand's website. Signing up for these programs is usually free and can be done through the companies' official sites.
Parents looking for some freebies or coupons on baby products should try registering with all of the well-known baby product manufacturers. For instance, Similac offers goodies through the Similac Strong Moms program. Sign up as soon as possible with this one, as Similac provides first trimester and third trimester gift bags, along with other coupons and goodies.
Some of these programs operate in conjunction with local obstetricians' offices. Moms-to-be may ask at their doctors' offices if they have a gift bag or package to hand out from these programs.
Another option is to join a reward points program, such as Huggies Rewards. This program allows parents to earn points on purchases they are already making and use those points toward free baby items. Signing up also puts parents on a mailing list for potential samples and coupons.
Parents in difficult financial circumstances may find free baby items and diapers through a local diaper bank. Find a listing of banks all over the country through the official website of the National Diaper Bank Network.
