How to Get Free Diapers

With costs going up on everything from gas to groceries, families are looking for every way they can to save, including how to save on baby expenses or even get free diapers and baby wipes.

According to a 2010 US Department of Agriculture report, the average middle-income family spends between $12,000 and $14,000 on child-related expenses in their baby’s first year, and in the decade since, costs have only continued to rise. But no matter their income, so many parents admit they are struggling to afford diapers and other essential baby supplies right now.

If you are among those looking for a way to save money and even score free diapers, there are several ways to do it.

Here are some of the best ways we’ve found:

1. How to Save Money on Diapers 

Register to receive free samples at your preferred brand. 

Some brands, like Huggies, provide free disposable or cloth trial diapers through in-house programs or partnerships with local non-profits.

They also offer samples — and sometimes entire boxes of diapers! — to people that sign up for their loyalty programs. In return for continued support at local retailers, diaper brands often pass on savings to parents in need of some assistance themselves.

And while one baby can be expensive, imagine how overwhelming shopping for multiple babies might be! Did you just give birth to twins or triplets?! Huggies has special programs for you. For free Huggies diapers coupons, send information about your babies — including name, address, and copies of the babies’ birth certificates — to Kimberly Clark Corporation, Departure QMB, PO Box 2020, Neenah, WI 54957.

Take surveys.

Survey sites like Survey Junkie allow you to earn cash and gift cards simply by sharing your opinion. These rewards can be used to purchase everyday needs, like diapers and baby wipes (or splurges, because we could all use a treat sometimes, too!). You might have to fill out a LOT of surveys, but when every extra little bit counts, your thoughts could help brands to better assist families, and a few moments of your time can really add up the savings.

2. How to Get Free Diapers and Wipes

Join the National Diaper Bank Network.

Statistics have shown that a third of families in the U.S. experience diaper need, which leaves babies exposed to potential health risks and could prevent them from being able to attend care facilities. The National Diaper Bank Network is one of the leading organizations working to change this.

If you are among those in urgent need, call 2-1-1 on your phone or search online at 2-1-1.org to find out if an agency in your area can provide diaper assistance. Specialists are available 24/7 to help identify local resources.

There are many organizations that work with the National Diaper Bank Network or that also work to distribute diapers to those in need. Community free diaper banks may also offer additional necessary baby supplies, like wipes or formula.

Families in the military, foster care program, and other special needs infants can seek assistance from organization’s that specialize in helping these communities, like the You Saved Me Foundation, which offers much-needed services to low income and homeless neighbors in San Diego, Philadelphia, and Orlando.

Many churches, YMCAs, and local food pantries also stock items like diapers and wipes.

Across the country, the National Diaper Bank Network partners with organizations like these and others that can assist lower-income families or those struggling to be able to afford essentials for their babies.

Check Community Bulletin Boards. 

Sure, you can look on actual boards at the library or other community gathering places, but increasingly these resources have moved online. Exchange websites like Freecycle, Facebook Communities, or even Craigslist may have postings about diaper exchanges or neighbors offering extra resources they can no longer use.

And while you are looking for free diapers, remember to list those things your baby has outgrown that someone else might be able to put to good use!

Consult your Pediatrician.

Doctors and local hospitals are great resources for those needing a little extra help or looking for every conceivable way to save money on diapers. After delivery and before you are discharged from the hospital, be sure to ask about free samples and other resources that are available to take with you. Much like formula, doctors likely also have access to diapers samples they may be able to allocate, or they can point you in the direction of additional organizations that may be able to offer free diapers and wipes.
