babysteals.com looks like a good site. They feature one deal a day at up to 80% off the price.

All of the major formula companies (Good Start, Enfamil, Similac, etc…) send out coupons if you sign up on their website; so do the diaper companies.  You can also get discounted diapers by signing up on http://www.diapers.com or by creating an Amazon Mom account with automatic diaper delivery(both are free). 

Also, look on Craigslist for baby stuff.  There is always cheap, hardly used baby stuff on there at a good price or even free.  We got a ton of baby clothes from Craigslist for free; some of them hadn’t even been worn!  And tell them to look for yard sales advertising baby stuff; you can get some awesome deals.

I don’t know any myself, but on a different thread, 808bride mentioned a deal with AmazonMom (I think the thread was baby products).

So nice of you to try to help her; I hope the clomid works for you!

I would have her sign up for her local Freecycle group.  My group is very active and I always see cribs, changing tables, etc on there.

Freecycle is like an e-mail group you sign up for and people post stuff they want to get rid of but don’t want to throw away.  Like a perfectly good crib that they don’t want to bother selling, or baby clothes that their kid outgrew.  I got a baby swing, a bouncer, a high chair, a changing table, clothes, and lot of other stuff all from my local freecycle group!

I don’t know if this flies in the states, but here if they need to use formula due to a milk production, or baby health issue (not just choosing to use formula) they can have the doctor write a prescription for the formula and your supplementary health insurance will cover it like they cover your drugs. Also, any vitamins/meds (even OTC) will be covered if they are written on a prescription pad and dispensed through pharmacy with a drug receipt.

I agree with freecycle and craigslist. I haven’t found a lot on freecycle, but I don’t check often and the good stuff can go quick. But I’ve found a lot of great stuff on craigslist – baby carriers, strollers, high chairs, swings, bouncy seats, basically everything.

Also, in my town there are three second hand stores that sell maternity/baby/kid stuff. There are clothes that still have tags on, and nothing in the infant was more than $3. I found a nice crib for $50, and they had a good selection of strollers, high chairs, swings. I feel guilty leaving things on my registry when I know I can pay a fraction and get them second hand, although we are putting those stores in with our registry info.

Oh, forgot to mention to check out if there will be a Just Between Friends (JBF) sale in her area.

Target wil give you freebie bag when you open a registry in the store. Same with Babies R Us. Also, if your community/city has a Baby Expo, lots of freebies there.

http://www.thredup.com would be good for them a little later – it’s a secondhand children’s clothing exchange site where you can sell a box of clothes your kid outgrew, and buy a box in the next size up.

I don’t have children, but I did come across this freebie website: freesamplesbaby.com
