Arrowroot starch or tapioca starch. Both staples in a paleo baker’s kitchen, these starches are all-natural alternatives to talc. Arrowroot is derived from several tropical South American plants. Tapioca starch is derived from the crushed-up pulp of the South American cassava plant, a woody shrub. Both are used in paleo recipes as alternatives to flour and cornstarch. If you’re using it to on your baby’s sore bottom, try this recipe with some extra ingredients to help soothe.
This one requires a little more strategy. Sign up at The Honest Company for a free trial or two. (We recommend the latter to make the most of the $5.95 shipping cost.) You can opt into a diapers and wipes bundle as well as an essentials package, which contains lotions, surface cleaners and hand soap. Just make sure to cancel your membership within seven days, or else you’ll be charged for a monthly subscription.

Inspire a love for reading at a young age. All you need to do is to sign up for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (see if the program is available in your area). From there, you’ll receive one free age-appropriate book each month from the time your child is born through age 5. If the Imagination Library isn’t currently in your area, you can assist in launching a program.
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.
