Why not take advantage of the free stuff? If nothing else, it lets you try a variety of products for free, and helps you decide what are the best products for your baby.
This site has kept a running list of free stuff for parents, but only recently did it get further categorized into free baby stuff, pregnancy free stuff, and more general parents free stuff. If you are pregnant, you will definitely want to check out both the pregnancy free stuff and the free baby stuff. You may want to check out the more general parents free stuff also, but it now is much easier to find the free stuff you want, than when there was just one big list of sixty or so parents free stuff offers.
As new free stuff offers turn up, they are added to the top of the appropriate list. The best way to make sure you don't miss any offers is to check the new free stuff page frequently. New free stuff offers are added daily. Not all offers added are for free baby stuff, but you may find other free offers in the more than sixty categories on this site that you will find appealing. You should also check out the About Parenting and Family channel for an absolute wealth of information on all aspects of parenting and family life.
Above all, be sure to enjoy your new baby and have fun checking out the baby free stuff.
