Free Breastfeeding Supplies & Samples For Moms

You can get free breastfeeding supplies no matter where you are in your breastfeeding journey.

I’ve listed how to get free breastfeeding supplies and samples for new mothers. Use the buttons below to get free lactation supplies from major brands like Lansinoh, Nanobébé, Bamboobies, and more.

Heads up: many of these are free, some are through insurance or government programs, and some require an email, a purchase, or a shipping fee. I’ve put all that info in the article so you can decide if the supplies are right for you.

What Breastfeeding Supplies Do I Need?

It can be tricky for new and expecting moms to know how long they’ll breastfeed and if it will work well for them. For this reason, you only need some breastfeeding basics to get you started. These freebies will help you build your stash of nursing supplies without breaking the bank.

Breastfeeding Essentials:

I relied only on the free breastfeeding samples I got in the mail and from welcome boxes for my personal breastfeeding experience. The samples lasted for many days of breastfeeding. Once they were gone, I knew which brands I liked and could use the coupons I got in the mail to buy more.

Breast Pump ?

Did you know you can get a breast pump through your health insurance company 100% free without calling your doctor or insurance provider!? The Affordable Care Act requires all health insurance plans to provide or cover the cost of a breast pump.

If you plan to breastfeed, a breast pump is essential. You can express and store milk when you can’t breastfeed (emergencies, sickness, work, etc.).

Many pump options exist, but companies like Aeroflow can help you find the best breast pump like:

You can likely get a manual and electric pump completely free from hospitals and insurance companies. So why not have them on hand?

Mom Tip: I got two Aeroflow breastpumps. With my first, I got the Spectra S2 breast pump, and with my second, I got the Medela Freestyle pump. Both pumps came with accessories. I would 100% recommend them to anyone!

Hospital Breastfeeding Supplies ?

Hospitals have free breastfeeding supplies like nursing pads, lanolin cream, medicated nipple cream (for severely chapped nipples), nipple shields, and manual and electric breast pumps. These supplies are available to you for free, but you have to ask. If you use a manual breast pump, they will send you home with it for free. If you use their hospital-grade electric breast pumps, you will leave them there (but will be able to take the flanges and tubing home).

Hospitals have postpartum care supplies like padsicles, mesh underwear, and Dermoplast spray to add to your postpartum survival kit.  They also have newborn supplies like diapers, wipes, shampoo, combs, and more.

Pro Tip: If you deliver in a hospital, bring a bag with enough space to stock up on the free breastfeeding supplies (and newborn supplies) the hospital offers. I brought home hundreds of dollars worth of free breastfeeding supplies and newborn essentials. 

Breastfeeding Classes

Check with the local hospital where you will deliver. Most offer breastfeeding courses for expectant mothers to prepare them for their breastfeeding journey. They also offer classes for mothers and their babies in group and one-on-one settings.

Pro Tip: My hospital charged a fee for the class, but it was covered 100% by my insurance company. I didn’t have to pay anything out of pocket, I just had to fill out a form through insurance. If your hospital charges fees for their courses, consult your insurance company to see what is covered at no cost.

State Government Programs ?

Breastfeeding can be costly (although much less than formula feeding). You may qualify for state-funded programs like Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) that provide resources for mothers who need them. Look for your state’s local WIC clinic. Although offerings vary by state, WIC mothers can access a group or individual lactation class to receive supplies like milk storage bags from WIC staff.

If you’re not interested in joining a group in person, there are several Facebook Groups for breastfeeding moms to support one another, like Milky Mamas

Free Breastfeeding App ?

Breastfeeding apps are helpful to record when, how long, and on what side you last fed. While you might feel like you can remember this on your own, trust me, after a few sleepless weeks, you will be happy to have a breastfeeding app to track the information. 

There are hundreds of free breastfeeding apps in the app store for Android and IOS. 

I used Huckleberry because you can track breastfeeding, mood, medication, diapers, sleep, and more. You can also have the app on multiple devices so the baby’s caregivers can access the important information. 

Mom Tip: Your pediatrician will ask you questions about how often your newborn is feeding, how long they are feeding, and how many wet and poopy diapers they are having. Keep all of this information at your fingertips with an app.

Free Audio Books ?

Listening to audiobooks is a great way to pass the time when breastfeeding your new baby for hours. You can also listen to them while you take walks in the park or drive around to get errands.  Audible members will get two free downloads during their free trial, plus access to a library of thousands of titles for unlimited listening.

You can download books about breastfeeding like Breastfeeding Made Simple and Ina May’s Guide to Breastfeeding, check out the best sellers or catch up on your favorite series. 

Pro Tip: Audible offers two free audiobooks when you sign up for a free trial. These books are 100% free (even if you cancel your subscription before the trial ends!).

Free Lactation Consultant ?

A lactation consultant is a certified lactation support specialist who can answer all your breastfeeding questions. 

Many hospitals will provide you with the phone numbers of their lactation professionals, but sometimes you might need additional help. Here’s how to find additional free lactation consultant support:

  • Many pediatrician offices have lactation consultants who can meet with you during appointments. Typically, these lactation consultants are covered under your co-pay at no additional cost, but always make sure to find out from your healthcare provider before setting up an appointment. 
  • Medela offers a one-on-one lactation consultation for FREE, even if you don’t own a Medela breast pump.  

? Formula Samples 

Having some formula for your little one at home is always good, even if you are breastfeeding. Two days after delivering my first, I had a medical emergency that required me to go back to the hospital. My milk hadn’t come in yet, so I hadn’t pumped. I was so happy to have a few formula samples, so I knew my newborn would get enough milk while I was gone.

My second couldn’t wait for my milk to come in and had severe hunger pains. We supplemented with formula for a few days until my supply was full.

Pro Tip: You can also get free baby formula samples from your healthcare provider’s office and hospital if you ask 🙂 

? Enfamil Beginnings ?

Sign up for the Enfamil Beginnings program and receive deluxe baby formula samples and coupons in the mail.

Sign up for the Similac Rewards program and get free samples and coupons worth $400 in the mail. You can now choose between their NeoSure classic formula or Alimentum for babies with food allergies (like Milk Protein Allergies) who require a special dairy-free diet..

I remember getting valuable coupons for popular breastfeeding supply brands like Lanshinoh to make some of the breastfeeding and postpartum supplies I bought for myself free or almost free!
