Your Questions About Baby Care

Sandra asks…

Are there any ways besides freecycle and craigslist to get free baby/parenting stuff *locally*?

Like furniture, books, toys, and other local freebies for young mom.
1) That was a separate post and not for you to address here.
2) I was advising that mom AGAINST the rice and when we did use it, it wasn’t to “shut them up”. That’s awful of you to say.
3) I reported you.
Thanks, everyone!

The Expert answers:

Kijiji? That gets used way more often than Craigslist or Freecycle combined in my area. I`ve come across some great finds. Some stuff is listed as free, other stuff dirt cheap. I honestly tend not to pay much attention to the free stuff available in my area on that site, I`d rather leave If for someone who really needs it.

If there’s not much listed, you could out up a free ad stating that you’re looking for some assistance with baby stuff and if anyone has anything they’d like to be rid of for free or at a low cost, to contact you.

You can also try Salvation Army, and your local Planned Parenthood chapter might have some leads for you.

The Expert answers:

Definitely check Craigslist for your area – also Rummage sales start up soon – you can get lots of clothes, bottles, swings etc from a rummage.

When it comes to items like formula & diapers, go with off brands such as Target’s Up & Up brand, diapers and formula are inexpensive and very good quality.

Carol asks…

Where can i apply for freebies and sweepstakes for my unborn baby?

I’m 12wks 5days pregnant,with my first baby! A lot of websites I looked at I have to fill out surveys! I don’t want surveys, just to put my e-mail and get free stuff sent to my home!

Examp: diapers,books,wipes,food,formula,etc!

What sites are available?

The Expert answers:

Well there aren’t many sites like that around but this is one of the few i found
There you can either make money or you can get amazon points by playing games, looking ad ads, doing surveys, or just doing a lottery. You can redeem your earnings two ways at and they will ship your item within 3 days normally or you can withdraw your points to cash and ask them to mail you a check, deposit via pay pal, e-gold, or alert pay. This is all 100 percent free and legit. There is even a chat box where you can ask members their opinion on the site, you will notice there is always hundreds of users on the site, it has a growing reputation.
So far I’ve made a decent amount of spare change on this site ENJOY! I hope this is what your looking for!
