When you buy Huggies Diapers (and remember, you can use coupons when you do), you will find little stickers inside the box/bag that have a code to enter for the Huggies Rewards Program. Essentially you enter those into your Huggies Account and when you acquire 500 points, you can get a FREE Jumbo pack. I made a diaper cake and had 10 codes lickety split… so those bad boys add up FAST.
It is not clear if consumer products containing talcum powder increase cancer risk. Studies of personal use of talcum powder have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. There is very little evidence at this time that any other forms of cancer are linked with consumer use of talcum powder.
Prosecutors say Johnson & Johnson knew about the risk since the early 1980s and did not protect its customers. In fact, the first study conducted on talc powder use on female genitalia found a 92 percent increased risk for ovarian cancer with women who reported genital talc use. But still, other doctors disagree. "Several decades of medical research do not support the hypothesis that use of talcum powder causes ovarian cancer," said Dr. Hal Lawrence, chief executive officer of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Huggies Rewards follows the same model — download the app, earn points (here, you do get 500 just for signing up), and then shop the Huggies rewards marketplace. Again, it requires a heck of a lot of diaper purchases to accumulate enough points to get a free pack, but Huggies does offer additional ways to earn points — like participating in surveys, sharing on social media, and reading articles.

One of my first projects when our baby was small was a natural homemade baby powder. His tiny little delicate rolls were difficult to keep dry with so many diaper changes during the day. I had so much fun concocting the perfect gentle, soothing baby powder that could be used on him, and it smelled so wonderful I ended up adding it to my own post-shower routine!
**Please note: Some people are opposed to using essential oils when caring for children and babies. I've found that most popular natural baby skincare lines use them safely and successfully for their healing and sensory qualities and have chosen to do so as well. This is something for you to research yourself and decide what is best for you and your baby.
UPDATE: I recently found another great way to get free baby samples! Check out the Everyday Mom Sampling Club. When you sign-up (it’s free) you’ll receive a new box of samples every month as part of the program. You’ll get samples from companies like Gerber, Pampers, Huggies and Enfamil. I’m not sure how long this promotion is going to run so you should check it out ASAP. Sign up here.
Believe Organics Talc Free Powder freshens, deodorizes, and absorbs moisture safely. This talc free loose powder handmade in small batches with organic rosemary & lavender essential oils. The ingredients including, certified organic cornstarch, certified organic arrowroot, certified organic tapioca, sweet rice, kaolin clay, saleratus, certified organic lavender, certified organic rosemary, and other certified organic essential oils. I love using this powder to keep drying during heavy workouts or during the summer to ward off chafing. When you sweat, light lavender and rosemary scents cover up body odor.
With Pampers Rewards, you need to download an app to scan in the in-pack codes. I did it and it's actually super easy. You get 100 points for signing up, 50 more when you scan in your first code. The one hitch is that while Pampers Rewards has loads of stuff you can get with relatively few points, it actually takes a lot of freaking points to earn a pack of free diapers. I did the math, and it would take 16 purchases of 166-count Pamper Swaddlers Size 4s to earn the 2100 points required to get a free pack. Now that's a lot, but also, you're going to buy the 16 packs anyway, so you may as well get one for free.
In August 2017, a jury in California ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million to a woman who says she developed terminal ovarian cancer. However, a superior court judge overturned the verdict in October and ordered a new trial. In February 2016, a Missouri court ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $72 million in damages to the family of Jackie Fox, a woman who died of ovarian cancer. This verdict was also overturned in Missouri Appeals Court in October 2017.

Moody Sisters Dry Shampoo is one I love, and the brand that turned me onto using dry shampoo. It’s perfect for the times when your hair doesn’t quite need to be washed again, but could look a little less greasy. The puff applicator makes it so easy to apply and blend into your scalp without any mess. It’s handmade with organic arrowroot powder, non GMO cornstarch, lemon peel powder, organic witch hazel, and aluminum free baking soda. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.

Baby companies give out a ton of free baby samples but only if they know you're out there and have a baby. If there's a company that makes a baby product you'd like to try, you should visit their website and register your information with them. This way when the baby companies decide to send out free baby samples, they'll automatically send one out to you.
