You aren’t likely to find “free samples” on Craigslist, however sometimes people will have leftover formula when they are all done with it. Some will offer it on there for a very low price and others will offer to give it away to a family that can use it. If you are one who can use it you can stay tuned into your local Craigslist under the baby and kids section.
If you really do need more than just samples and money to buy formula just isn’t there then you should seek help and not just free samples. While you can get a number of infant formula free samples these won’t go far when you are considering feeding your baby. There are programs to help you. In the US there are programs such as WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) that will help you get the formula your baby needs. These programs are based on income and designed to help those that really would struggle with getting formula. It is important that you don’t feed an infant under 4 months of age water, watered down formula, or other foods including infant cereal.
In most cases getting formula samples is safe and won’t harm your child in anyway. However, if your child is sensitive or has digestive problems then he or she will have a hard time switching to different formulas. In these cases, using infant formula free samples will cause stomach upset, extra spit up, and can also cause diarrhea.
Getting infant formula free samples can help you to feed your baby and will help you to save a little money. You won’t be able to get enough samples to feed your baby for the next year, but you will be able to save a little money. You will also get coupons that can help you to save more money.
