When you’re prepping for a new baby, it can easily seem like there’s a long list of things to buy. And after awhile, it all adds up. From nursing bras to weekly essentials, there’s likely a deal you can score if you know where to look. Here are a few tips to save you the effort of finding them yourself.

1. Nursing Bras You’ll Actually Like: Here’s the raw deal with nursing bras — the options are limited. And if you’re measuring larger than a D cup, your options are even slimmer (not to mention more expensive). Enter this amazing deal: Nordstrom will convert any bra into a nursing bra for a small alteration fee (typically $16). Even better, many Nordstrom stores will do this alteration even if you didn’t buy the bra from Nordstrom. Which is great news if you had to size up a bit and buy a new bra or two while you were pregnant. With this deal, you can stretch that investment a little further by converting it into a nursing bra too! Or you can find a new bra that fits you perfectly and make it into a nursing bra you’ll actually want to wear. To find out what your local Nordstrom can do, call ahead to see how this service is offered.

2. Discount Diapers and Formula: If you’re already an Amazon Prime member, it’s time to unwrap a few extra benefits of that yearly subscription cost. By signing up for Amazon Family, Prime members can save on many of the purchases they already need, including 20 percent off diapers and baby food. To maximize the savings, you’ll need to subscribe for regular deliveries, but since these are things you’ll need on the regular, it’s easily a win-win for you.

3. Free Car Seat Cover: Whether it’s to shield your little one from the sun, snow, or rain, a car seat cover is a worthy investment for any season. And if you can score one for pretty close to free, then why not get one? Canopy Couture has a huge selection of car seat covers, with a pretty amazing offer that’s hard to refuse. With the coupon code FREECANOPY1, you can snag a free single car seat cover of your choice. The catch: You still have to pay for shipping.
