Did you know that the average newborn goes through 10 diapers a day!

And that by the time they’ve hit their third birthday, you’ll have spent more than $2,100 buying at least 8,580 diapers! Crazy!

That’s a huge expense on a family, so we’ve put together a list of 9 ways you can get free diapers….

1. Free Samples

Shopping for toiletries

Believe it or not, there are a ton of companies that will send you free diapers just for trying out their brand. It’s not a long-term savings strategy, but you can definitely get enough samples to last you for a week or so. Every little bit helps!

Honest Company – They will send you 7 of their premium diapers and 10 baby wipes.

Little Huggies – Register here for a free sample pack of diapers & wipes.

Seventh Generation – They’ll send you 2 free, organic cloth diapers.

Simply Right – It seems to vary, but they sent us 5 diapers.

2. Pampers Gifts to Grow

Pampers Rewards

Join the Pampers Gifts to Grow program and they’ll send you free diapers as reward for your loyalty to the Pamper’s brand.

Every time you buy a box of Pampers, look for the code inside the box and enter it into the website above. Those points can be saved up and later redeemed for diapers, baby food and toys.

3. Diaper Bank

If things are really tough, check out the National Diaper Bank Network. The non-profit network is aimed at assisting low-income families and they’ve started local chapters all over the country.

As you probably know, food stamps and WIC do not provide diapers, so this is a wonderful alternative to those who need assistance.

4. Get Free Diapers When You Sign Up for the Target Baby Registry

The best part about this one?

You get way more than just diapers.

To help support new and expecting moms, Target’s giving away an awesome gift bag when you set up a baby registry with the store. It includes more than $60 worth of coupons and samples!

Not only will you get diapers and wipes from The Honest Company and coupons for brands like Liz Lange and Starbucks, you’ll get these other goodies, too:

  • Aquaphor diaper rash cream
  • Olly prenatal multivitamin
  • MAM pacifier
  • Lansinoh breastfeeding storage bags
  • Pampers wipes
  • Philips Avent natural bottle

Plus, it’s totally free to sign up for the Target Baby Registry.

5. Get Free Diapers with Swagbucks

Arguably one of the cheapest places to get diapers is at Amazon, so here’s a tip on how to get a free Amazon gift card. Join Swagbucks.

They’ll give you Amazon gift cards for answering trivia questions and questions about your shopping habits. It’s not a ton of money, but most people are able to earn about $10 a month in free Amazon gift cards.

6. Use Cloth Diapers

A lot of parents have found that using washable, cloth diapers can be a great way to save on diapers.

Finanical blogger, Courtney Baker, recently did the math  and found that a family with three kids could save over $2,500 by switching to cloth diapers!

7. Become a Diaper Ambassador
