30 Ways To Get Free Breastfeeding Supplies & Samples

Use the links below to claim your free breastfeeding supplies from major brands like Lansinoh, Nanobébé, Bamboobies, and more. 

It can be difficult for new moms and expectant mothers to know how long their breastfeeding journey is going to be, and whether or not it will be successful. There are so many factors that go into whether breastfeeding will be the right fit for new mothers and their babies.  

Because of this, you probably don’t want to shell out a lot of money on breastfeeding supplies that you may or may not use.  But to have the best breastfeeding experience, you should have all of the basic necessities on hand (nursing pads, nipple cream, nipple shields, a Haakaa, and a breast pump).

The good news is that I’ve compiled a list of 30 free breastfeeding supplies and samples for new moms.  

Please note that while many of these are 100% free, some will require an email address, a purchase to receive the free gift or a shipping fee. I’ve tried to gather all of that information in this article so you can decide whether the free breastfeeding supplies are worth it to you!

Free Breastfeeding Supplies

Pro Tip: Look for the 🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁🎁icon to find 100% free, no strings attached deals!

1. Free Breast Pump 🎁

Do You Need A Breast Pump If You Are Breastfeeding?

If you’re planning on breastfeeding, and not planning to return to work, you might wonder if you need a breast pump. The answer is simple: yes you need a breast pump.

Breastpumps allow you to express milk that can be stored for later. Even if you’re not planning on leaving your baby or going back to work, having a stash of milk in the freezer is critical for those times that you are sick or an emergency comes up when you can’t breastfeed. 

How To Choose The Right Breast Pump

There are many different kinds of breast pumps on the market. I have full guides on all of these types of breast pumps including manual vs. electric breast pumps, hospital-grade vs. regular breast pumps, and non-traditional breast pumps like the Haakaa to help you find the best breast pump for you.

Each of these types of breast pumps serves a purpose. As someone who breastfed her child until 20 months, I owned a manual pump, an electric pump, and a Haakaa breast pump.  

You should do a little research on what kind of pump you think would suit your lifestyle best, but know that you can likely get both a manual and electric pump completely free from your hospital or insurance (see more below)… So why not have them on hand?

Getting A Breastpump For Free From Insurance

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies in the United States are required to supply new mamas with a free breast pump

From what I have seen and heard, most health insurance plans will cover the cost of an electric breast pump. 

Although you can reach out to your insurance provider directly to find out how to get your electric pump… Using a company like Aeroflow Breastpumps makes it SO MUCH EASIER. 

Mom Tip: I used Aeroflow to get my Spectra S2 breast pump for free and I would 100% recommend them to anyone!

All you have to do is create an account, enter your health insurance info (from your insurance card) and their team will do all of the heavy-lifting for you. Aeroflow will contact your insurance provider to find out which pumps are covered under your insurance AND they will even reach out to your doctor if you need a prescription for the pump.  

Depending on your health insurance company, you may qualify through Aeroflow for their part replacement program as well to get new flanges, backflow protectors, tubing, etc. delivered to you with free shipping on a regular basis.

The cost of a breast pump is worth hundreds of dollars! Even if you’re not 100% sure what your breastfeeding journey is going to look like, why not get your free breast pump to have in case you wind up like me extended breastfeeding? 

2. Free Lactation Consultant 🎁

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

You will see a lactation consultant in the hospital if that is where you deliver your new baby. Typically the lactation consultant visits within 12-24 hours of the baby’s birth in the hospital.

Don’t worry if you have enough breastmilk at this point. The lactation consultant is looking to see how the baby is latching and if you are producing colostrum. This will get you and your baby off to the best star

Many hospitals will provide you with the phone number of their lactation professionals, but sometimes you might need additional support. 

First check with your pediatrician. Many pediatrician offices have lactation consultants available to meet with you during your many doctor’s appointments in the early months of your baby’s life. 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 also offers a one-on-one lactation consultation for FREE, even if you don’t own a Medela breast pump.

3. Free Hospital Breastfeeding Supplies 🎁

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

Hospitals will typically have postpartum care supplies like padsicles, mesh underwear, Dermoplast spray, and more. Although you will probably need a more robust DIY postpartum survival kit at home as well. 

Hospitals will also have newborn supplies like diapers, wipes, samples of shampoo, hair combs, and more. 

Finally, although they don’t bring you these supplies unless you ask for them, hospitals also have free breastfeeding supplies.

You can ask for things like nursing pads, lanolin cream, nipple shields, and I have even heard of hospitals providing free manual breast pumps and electric pump parts to moms who request them… It doesn’t hurt to ask! 

4. Free Breastfeeding Support Groups 🎁

Your hospital or lactation consultant will have a list of free breastfeeding support groups near you.  

You can also look for a Baby Café which is a drop-in breastfeeding support group offering personalized breastfeeding help for all moms.

If you’re not interested in joining a group in person, KellyMom has an awesome Facebook Group for breastfeeding moms to support one another.

5. Free Breastfeeding App 🎁

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

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 all on your own, trust me after a few sleepless weeks, you will be so happy to have a breastfeeding app to track the information for you. 

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. Show up as an expert with all of this information in the palm of your hand using a free breastfeeding app.

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

6. Free Audio Books 🎁

Listening to audiobooks is a great way to pass the time when you are breastfeeding your baby for hours on end. You can also listen to them while you take walks in the park, or driving around to get errands.  

You can get 2 free audiobooks from Audible when you sign up for a free trial. These books are 100% free (even if you cancel your subscription before the trial is over!).  

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

11. Amazon Baby Registry Box

Get $35 worth of freebies for you and your baby from Amazon. This was my favorite box out of the baby boxes that I received. It had tons of samples of free breastfeeding supplies as well as a really cute muslin swaddle and gender-neutral organic cotton onesie. 

To claim your box: 

  • Create a baby registry with Amazon 
  • You must “complete” the registry to 60% (it walks you through different areas of the registry like bathing supplies, clothes, travel systems, etc.).
  • You must purchase $10 worth of product from your registry (you can make the purchase or wait until a friend or family member makes a purchase)
  • Add the welcome box to your cart (it should be free!) 
  • Customer service is super helpful if the box isn’t showing up as free 

Pro Tip: If you’re not ready to buy something off of the registry for your baby, but you want the box, you can add anything to your registry that you would normally buy, and that will count. I decided to order a pack of maternity undies to get me through my pregnancy to fulfill the $10 requirement. But you could buy anything like laundry detergent or pet food!

17. Free Breastfeeding Pillow

A nursing pillow (I personally have the Boppy) is essential for breastfeeding. It props your baby up to the right position to avoid slouching while you are nursing.  

You can even use your nursing pillow as a resting spot for your little one as they get older, and a seat assist when they start to sit on their own. 

With this deal, you do have to pay shipping and handling, but you can get a free breastfeeding pillow by using the code MOMMY40 to take $40 off your order

19. Free Milk Bands

Milk Bands are so cute! A milk band is a silicone bracelet that has a built-in time tracker. They also remind you white side you breastfed from last. 

Pro Tip: You should always alternate which side you feed on, whether you are offering both breasts at each feed, or just one at a time. This will help your milk supply stay even between both breasts.

24. Free Kiinde Starter Kit

I personally used and loved Kiinde products during my breastfeeding journey. You can pump directly into their sterilized breastmilk storage bags… Eliminating one more thing from the endless breastpump parts that need to be sterilized.

The storage bags are awesome because they stand up on their own making them easier to store, and they have accurate measurements on them so you can see how much milk is in each bag. 

The bags then fit into a special Kiinde bottle that only requires you to clean the nipple (score!). 

Get your free starter kit to try out the bags and bottles worth $50! Just pay shipping and handling.

Nanobébé has uniquely shaped bottles that mimic a mother’s breast to easily transition between breast and bottle feeds with less confusion.  

Try their system for free with the Nanobébé Sample Kit. Just pay shipping and handling.

Free Formula Samples

You might not think of baby formula as a breastfeeding supply… But it’s always good to have some formula for your little one on hand at home. 

For example, two days after being home from the hospital I started having severe pain at my epidural site and needed to go to the hospital ASAP for a scan. I had to leave my 2-day-old with his grandma… And at that point, my milk had barely come in… Definitely didn’t have enough to pump a bottle. 

I was so happy that I had formula samples on hand so I could leave my newborn at home and know he would be fed! 

You might also find that you don’t have enough milk right away, so having the formula to supplement in addition to your breastmilk will keep your new baby full.

For this reason, and for emergencies, I always suggest new moms have some formula on hand, even if you are planning to exclusively breastfeed because you never know what life is going to throw at you! 

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

26. Enfamil Beginnings 🎁

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