With this in mind, if you're looking to the lighten the financial load of having a baby then you might want to take a leaf out of this savvy mum's book.
Earlier this week, bargain hunter Holly Smith – who founded the Facebook page Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK – shared her her impressive haul of pregnancy freebies she bagged online.
In a viral TikTok video, the soon-to-be mum-of-four showed off her bundle of Pampers nappies, baby wipes and vitamins.
After directing viewers to her blog, Holly said: "Some people wonder why baby brands give out so many freebies and it's because it's great marketing.
"For example, if you get a free pack of new baby nappies and you really like them and you go on to purchase them for the next time years… ka-ching for the brand!"
In a separate video, Holly explained how mums can get a free MAM bottle starter pack worth £9.99.
She said: "Over at the MAM website, you can get this starter pack completely free when you use the code BCTRYMEFREE at checkout.
"All you have to do is pay for postage!"
In her "Ultimate Guide to Pregnancy Freebies in the UK" blog post, Holly highlighted the top baby bargains with her 488,000 followers.
For instance, the bargain hunter praised Bounty's Mum-to-be packs which you can collect from 13 weeks pregnant and contains samples from brands such as Pampers, Huggies and Sudocrem.
Another one of Holly's tips is to download the Emma's Diary App which offers mums four "starter" packs full of freebies and can be collected from Argos and Asda.
She also pointed out how she gets freebies through the Boots Parenting Club – which gives members eight Advantage Card Points for every £1 or more spent on baby products.
What's more, Holly recommended the The Baby Box Co. which she claims gives members a box of freebies when you sign up and exclusive deals on baby products.
As well as praising Ella's Kitchen community for coupons and weaning tips, Holly directed her followers towards Pampers Baby Club which offers members "a £30 Ergobaby promo code valid on Ergobaby purchases of £60 or more."
