How to get the best free baby and pregnancy stuff and samples

Section: Deals
free baby stuff

You'd be surprised what free baby stuff is available to new mums. There are a wide range of companies willing to give out freebies, in exchange for your personal data. After a quick search online you'll find goodie-bags for pregnancy, newborn babies and toddlers as well as free nappies, dummies, follow-on milk and even baby food.

The things you should know before signing up for freebies

If you've decided you want to give brands your data - this being your email address and phone number - in exchange for free baby stuff, you should be prepared for quite a few marketing emails and texts. It might be worth setting up a separate email address specifically for freebies to avoid spam. It's also really important to read the small print and check if part of the deal is passing on your data to third parties.

The best pregnancy, baby and toddler free samples and goodie-bags

From NHS baby boxes to Bounty - here are the best free baby stuff out there and how easy it is to get hold of.
