As a new mother or mom-to-be, you know how fast the cost of essentials like formula, diapers and wipes adds up. Scoring discounts on those supplies is a must. The good news is that many companies offer baby freebies for new moms and those who are expecting.
But don’t spend time searching for these deals; you’ve got enough to keep you busy. Sara Skirboll, fashion & trends expert, and blogger at The Real Deal Blog did the digging for you.
Now, to take advantage of these, you will need to spend a bit of time signing up for offers and rewards programs. But the effort is well worth the products you’ll earn for your baby and yourself.
