Freebies from Infant formula companies
I’ve included the formula companies because they do offer pregnancy and baby freebies, but just be warned they will have subtle formula and follow on milk messages, which you don’t need – even if you bottle feed with Infant formula, it’s better to stick with the first formula rather than switch to follow on milk. They aren’t allowed to advertise their infant milk before 6 months, so getting you on board whilst pregnant is a way of getting round the advertising ban. Onto the offers – Cow & Gate offer a free pregnancy diary and cuddly cow when you join up to their baby club. Similarly, SMA infant formula have a pregnancy club which offers surprises, information and competitions. Aptamil has offers, expert advice and discounts.
