Speaking from experience, I know that it can also be super scary to have a new baby, as there are so many unknowns and so many expenses coming your way.
One of the best ways to mitigate these costs and make life just a little bit easier is to be on the hunt for free baby samples and other baby freebies. The good news is that you’re in the right place to find all sorts of baby samples and free baby stuff in the mail, too!
Below, I’ll share some of the best strategies for getting free baby sample kits by mail, and even share a printable letter that you can use today to request free baby samples by mail.
Why Should You Request Free Baby Samples?
When you’re expecting a baby, or if you already have your new bundle of joy, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with all that you have to do, and all the items that you need to keep your home stocked with. From diapers to bottles to baby formula and so much more… the list of things your baby needs goes on and on! And wouldn’t it be nice if you didn’t have to pay for some of those items?
This is where free baby samples can really come in handy!
First, off, though, I feel it necessary to share a great article on 10 Things New Moms Should Not Worry About. Although having diapers, bottles and a feeding plan are pretty necessary, there are things that aren’t and that article does a pretty good job of teaching, or even reminding new moms what’s important and frankly, what’s not as important.
What is important, though is to be sure that you’re an informed consumer, which is why I wrote this article on things that you can snag completely free, at no cost to you, just offered simply as free baby samples (by mail) of course, because we just don’t want to leave the house when we’re super pregnant, am.i.right? 🙂
The mistake most expecting and new moms make is not realizing that they can request free baby samples. But you can! Here are the main reasons why you should request free baby samples:
- Save money – The obvious reason to request free baby samples from companies is that you’ll be able to save money on essentials for baby. And who doesn’t like saving money?
- Find new products that you love – When you’re a new mom, you rely on the recommendations of friends, family and medical professionals, as well as the occasional Google or Pinterest search to figure out which brands and products you should purchase. When you request free baby samples, you’re opening the door to a new brand or product, which you may very well fall in love with (and may not have discovered otherwise)!
- Make life easier – Above all else, requesting free baby samples can help make your life a lot easier! Doing a little bit of work up front to request free baby samples by mail will set you up to receive goodies and helpful items in the mail. Can you imagine a day in your future where you’re too busy to run to the store to get some new baby formula… and then a package of free formula samples that you requested a few weeks ago magically shows up at your door? It may sound too good to be true, but it’s not! You just need the tools to help you request these free samples for baby, which I’m going to share with you now.
How to Request Free Baby Samples
Now that you know why it’s helpful to request free baby samples, here are some ways that you can get yourself on the list for free baby sample kits by mail – lickety split!
1. Ask for Baby Kits and Coupons by Mail
For starters, make a list of all of the baby product companies and sample baby offers that you can think of to contact them for coupons, free baby diapers, and even free baby bottle samples.
The key is trying to get free baby samples by mail without surveys, though.
Here is a big list of baby companies to contact for free baby samples and baby coupons:
- Enfamil Baby Formula
- Gerber Baby Foods
- Huggies Rewards Program
- Luvs Diapers
- Pampers baby samples for free by mail
- Pampers Kandoo baby free samples
- Seventh Generation
- Tide Detergent and/or Stain Release
- Tylenol baby freebies
- Xtra Laundry Detergent sample freebies
If you are really serious about getting baby samples for free by mail, I recommend finding the company’s address on the contact us form and letting them know that you’re expecting a baby (or that you’ve recently had a baby) and then, let them know that you’re interested in trying their products and getting free samples by mail.
FREE Printable Letter for Requesting Baby Samples by Mail
Just personalize the letter and customize it with your information. Easy Peasy! You never know, some companies have been known to send a free baby welcome box!
2. Find the Free Baby Kits Already Being Offered
Another way to request free baby samples by mail is to find where there are free baby sample kits already being offered. It’s no secret that companies want you to try their products and fall madly in love with them. So, why shouldn’t they be sure you get your hands on something free for baby, or even a free gift – a small sample for baby at little to no cost to you?
When it comes down to it, the market for baby products isn’t that long. If you have a baby, there is likely no way you’ll be buying Huggies after the child is three years old, right? Compare this to something like bread, where once you find a bread company to be brand loyal to, you’ll be buying that bread for years and years to come. These companies know that it behooves them to send out free stuff for babies by mail to make sure that you fall in love with their products and buy theirs and theirs alone for the entire time that you’re in the market for that product.
There are several companies that offer a free baby kit and even free samples of diapers by mail. Here are some of the free baby sample kits available (some started in 2017, 2018 and are still available in 2019):
Everyday Happy Baby free diaper samples (cancel after the free trial)
3. Sign up for Baby Registries
The real magic of getting free baby samples by mail is when you sign up for baby registries. Some of the free baby samples that you get when you sign up for a baby registry are mind-blowing! You can receive diapers, free books and more – all for free!
In addition, some of the companies will even offer a registry completion coupon that is higher than any coupon that you will ever get from that retailer again! When your registry is filled, they will deliver a coupon to you that you can use at that store – sometimes for up to 40, 50, or 60% off at that retailer!
Here are retailers that offer a special perk when you create a baby registry with them:
- Amazon Baby Registry (Plus, the Amazon Baby site offers great deals to save money, free shipping and a free “Welcome Box” when you buy off the registry!)
Another super nice perk of registering for your baby at a big store like this other then getting all of the free baby products is that you’ll also have super easy exchanges and returns on all of your registry items as well. And, when you’re a new mom or dad, easy is king. Promise. 🙂

Other FAQs About Free Baby Samples
Still have questions about free baby samples by mail? Here are some of the other questions I get all the time.
Are the free baby samples by mail really any good?
You better bet your bippy! I always find that the baby companies are so generous with their free samples. The reason likely is that they know that there is only a short window of time to use all of their products and they hope that you’ll choose their brand, so they want to be yours and your child’s favorite as soon as possible.
How about free baby bottle samples – are those a thing?
Of course free baby bottle samples are a thing! Much like diapers (in fact maybe even more so), you use baby bottles for such a short amount of time. And, bottles can be reused for multiple children, so it may be even more important to them to get your business from the get-go.
To that point, offering a free baby bottle or baby bottle coupons is in their best interest.
Companies that are currently offering free baby bottle samples:
- Dr. Brown’s via Target (with free baby registry here)
- Amazon’s Baby Registry Welcome Box (Simply complete a Baby Registry using Amazon Checklist here and $10 of purchases from the registry spent (from yourself or gifters) and you’ll get a free baby sample box full of full size and trial size freebies – awesome!
