Free Baby Products...Yes Please!

Greetings all.

As I stated in my previous post, I am almost 39 weeks pregnant. Like most people, I have come to realize that most baby things are on the more expensive side, especially formula. I plan on breastfeeding and pumping...but life happens and I may not be able to.

I am not sure about the States, but here in Canada we have a few companies that send out free formula and samples when you sign up online. They are all a one time thing, as in one package per household. They are also a great way of trying out each companies formulas and seeing which one will agree with your baby's tummy the best. There are multiple that I have received so far, but today I will go more in depth into the Enfamil box. They offer 2 types of boxes, depending on your needs. I picked the regular mail option, but there is an earth friendly one where you can redeem your coupons in store for full sized product. This particular box usually ships 6-8 weeks before your expected due date.

The items come nicely packaged in this adorable box, which also has some weight to it. Inside, there are multiple coupons for future purchases as well as some information on the formula and samples provided. There is a nice sized sample of Sudocrem Diaper cream, as well as Aleva Naturals Sleep Easy Hair and Body Wash. Both are great sizes for travel. Formula wise, the box contains 2 packages of single serve formula pouches. One is the A+ Stage 1 formula for babies ages 0-12 months. The other package contains the Gentlease version. It also comes with a 6 pack of ready to serve formula in A+ Stage 1. For your convenience it comes with a nipple cap you can screw directly onto the formula bottle, ready for baby to eat. Super handy, especially for the diaper bag.

Needless to say, the fact that these companies will send out free product to new moms to try out is amazing, and I commend them all for doing so. Its hard enough being a new mom, and this just makes things a little easier. If you end up not needing the product, you can obviously give it to friends or family but what I won't use I will be donating to the infant food bank. Please let me know if you would like for me to go more in depth into other free products companies send out to new parents. Also, please leave me a comment letting me know your favourite brands of formula and why...I could use all the info I can get. :)

Stay Pretty

  1. I loved getting the "free stuff" when I had a wee one. My milk never came in so I couldn't breast feed and the free formula really helped. We have a great neighborhood that has an online presence. When someone receives samples or coupons they can't use they post the items to see if there is another family in the neighborhood that is in need.

    1. I love that! I had a very small supply of milk which dried up a week later so all the formula I received was so nice to have because I thought I was going to exclusively breastfeed. If I wouldn’t of needed it, donating it would of been a great option!

  2. Yes! I loved my OBGYN when it came to this subject. He retired the year after my daughter was born, but he knew all the connections on how to get free baby products that I had on my list. I was very thankful for all the freebies.
