    Free baby stuff

    Free baby stuff 13th Jan 16 at 8:52 AM

    Calling all family board members... we need your help!

    We want to give a helping hand to new mums and dads to be. The bigger ticket items can cost an arm and a leg so grabbing free samples can help keep costs down, even if it's just a couple of pounds.

    I don't know about you but being a MoneySaver I started hunting for baby samples the moment I found out I was expecting - both times!

    Can you help us help mums and dads to be?

    Please share your freebie finds for parents. What have you found, did you get it, was it worth it, how did you rate it?

    Thank you!

    Check out our main site guides too:

    Our Baby Booty Freebies (Freebies Roulette!) and Baby Checklist should help.

    This Forum tip was included in MoneySavingExpert.com's weekly email!

    I don't know if other counties do it but if you live in Hertfordshire then expectant mums can get free vitamins. If breastfeeding you get them after too. Available from children's centres rather than doctors.

    There's 3 coupons, Mum to Be, Bump to Baby, & New Family. I got the new Family one from Argos today & it contains a Fairy washing pod, Fairy fabric softner, 3x pampers, a small pack (12) of Pampers wipes, & a baby spoon.

    I did have trouble with it as it kept going round in circles, but it worked eventually.

    Just checked you can get one of each.
    Thanks everyone!

    I've just become a mother, but I haven't even thought about getting freebies. There is much useful information here! I'm also going to try it. Thanks a lot!

    I've been looking for free samples and not been massively successful, so thought I'd share my successes, as an update to this thread!

    Cow & Gate- cow and little diary. Handy diary for keeping notes of what's been happening!

    Mama's & Papa's- expectant parent event. Free talks, first aid demo and a goodie bag. Goodie bag included a cute little babygro/bib set, a soft rattle and a sample of baby wash. First aid demo was good, went through CPR and choking.

    Mothercare- expectant parent event. As above, but goodie bag included a baby towel, two dummies, a 4 pack of milton tablets, sample of persil, sample of comfort pure, some baby wash samples, pregnacare tablets (be great if I could swallow them!).

    MAM- bottle & soother. Did have to pay delivery, but still much cheaper than buying one from Boots. Breast pump I'm looking at doesn't come with lots of bottles, and I thought an extra one would be handy.

    Not including the Bounty and Emma's diary packs, not claimed them yet. I may as well, as they're inundating me with rubbish from rubbish companies!

    I've seen the Naty ambassador scheme, I just need to check my friends/family who are expecting would like to try them!

    Anyone else had any successes?

    Dear new mums, if you collect bounty packs, it's good to know that they are different in different stores. My friend got a Growing family pack from Boots and only got a few leaflets, a sample of swim nappy, a pouch of baby food and a very small sample of some cream. I redeemed mine in Tesco and apart from all that, also got a complete pack of Tesco nappy pants (22 on them), a pack of baby wipes, and a full travel bottle of the cream (not a tiny sample).
