The boxed packs themselves are only available from either the hospital or health visitor. If your health authority participates you get one antenatally (which contains the free mag I posted a link to the other day) and one either on the postnatal ward or from your HV after you go home. Registering with them means that you get a smaller pack, just an envelope really with mostly leaflets and vouchers in though I did get a sample sanitary pad in mine.

I forgot to say that the envelope is only sent out when your baby reaches a certain age. I think its 6 months though I can't be certain on that.

i registered for this ages ago, nothing yet. i think it's only the toddler pack you get anyway, so they'd send it in a couple of years maybe lol!

i got a pack when my pregnancy was confirmed by the doctor, they gave me the pack when i got my green notes. it's very good, especially the NCT magazine. there's a new baby pack in hospital by each bed in the postnatal ward, the nurse let me pinch one when i stayed in recently, it had a mumsplus one voucher booklet with more than a fivers worth of vouchers to be used in asda or tesco :-) (and some baby related stuff, vaseline, carex handwash etc.)

Join the pampers club and you get money off vouchers for nappies etc and other stuff like that - also the huggies club (on their websites) www.pampers.co.uk www.huggies.co.uk Also look at the mumplusone.co.uk website - you can contact them and ask for a hard copy of their publication which is full of vouchers etc

Cool Boots!

Boots have started off a new Parenting Club - you could probably find more details on www.boots.com ?

Just for joining you get £5 worth of points, and if you join when you're expecting, you get some fabulous offers such as things for the mum to be and the baby to be.

Makes owning a baby a tad cheaper as you'll get triple points on nappies, extra vouchers etc in the post, all well worth doing

If you don't have one already, get an Advantage card, you'll get one anyway by signing up for the Parenting Club. It's a new thing out there, so pop into your nearest boots, or register online......well worth doing as they'll send tons of stuff out and it'll make owning a baby a tad cheaper

Hope that helps, :rolleyes:

My baby is 18 months old now so don't know how up to date these are, but give them a whirl and see how you do. Also join the supermarket baby clubs (tescos and sainsburies both definitely have them, not sure about any others - there is usually information in store), as these can give you vouchers for clothes, toys, food etc. Sorry if I parrot previous people - I made this list up for pregnant friends who wanted to know the same thing.

www.babyfreebies.co.uk - has a list of some sites that you sign up and receive free stuff from. Well worth checking out, although it isn’t regularly updated, so once might be enough.

www.bounty.com - Bounty packs are great, although a little less exciting than the pictures. You can enter competitions here and sign up for some of the packs.

www.emmasdiary.co.uk - the packs are pretty good, but the vouchers are only available from your doctor or midwife and birth registrar. You can enter competitions via the website though.

www.freebieholics.co.uk - a comprehensive and regularly updated list of sites offering free stuff, including competitions. A useful web site – I even got an Avent Via feeding system free as a result.
www.freeinuk.co.uk - some principle as freebieholics, but tends to have less listed.

www.huggiesclub.com - sign up to join and receive a voucher (you must sign up at least 6 weeks before your EDD). Purchase a pack of Huggies nappies at Boots and use the voucher to receive a free change bag. This was the best free thing I received – well worth it.

www.pampers.com - get vouchers and booklets (I got loads sent, so I’d recommend this).

Weaning:

www.babyorganix.co.uk - Sign up here for a free weaning magazine and vouchers

www.cowandgate.co.uk / 08457 623 623 - provides chat and advice. Also offers recipes useful for weaning (phone up and ask for the ‘Mini Menus’).

www.hipp.co.uk / 0845 050 1351- will provide coupons if you phone up and ask for ‘coupon info pack’.
