Starting anything new is scary, just in general, right? A new job, a new relationship, breaking in new shoes (my least favorite!).
Parenting is no exception. One thing I found to make the first few weeks easier–having tons of prepared stuff at hand. This means snacks for you, advil portioned out for the postpartum pain, and baby stuff galore (diapers and wipes, oh my!). There is no such thing as too many newborn baby product samples!
In my third trimester I decided to start registering for free samples in part due to anxiety. I had a million thoughts and questions.
I decided the best way to figure this all out was to try it all for free. I googled “similac samples” and other similar terminology to find the list below! Each box is unique and comes with coupons, so I definitely suggest you try the different products when your baby is born to figure out which works best for you!
The Enfamil and Similac sample boxes are very similar. Both ready-to-feed bottles and a variety of powder versions that you can try out. They also include coupons in the form of checks. The store you buy from simply scans the “check” as a form of payment so you can use them in conjunction with manufacturers coupons!
The Sam’s Club sample box is the least useful of the different samples. It has a size 3 diaper, wipes, and toddler food.
If you open a registry at Babies ‘R’ Us, in store you will get a welcome bag. Mine included a NoseFrida which was a lifesaver for our little guy who was born during cold and flu season.
Most pediatricians have free samples in the office, too, you just have to ask to get them.
Let me know what freebies you scored!
