If you are currently pregnant you may or may not be aware of the many different baby clubs that you can sign up to and receive free samples, money off vouchers and lots of information about babies, pregnancy and parenting.
If you didn't know about these baby clubs then this is the post for you as I'm going to list all the good ones to join and provide links to make it nice and easy for you to join!
Before I get to the baby clubs I thought I'd do a quick bump update for you, I'm currently 35 weeks pregnant and my bump is the same size now as it was at 42 weeks when I was pregnant with my son which I find quite scary, I'm feeling really uncomfortable and tired at the moment and I feel really unorganised, my baby brain is really bad this time! My mission for the last 2 weeks has been to pack my hospital bag and I managed to pack half of it yesterday lol oh well I'm nearly there!
|My massive bump at 35 weeks!|
Ok I'll start with the most obvious baby clubs, the two that you hear most about when you're pregnant are
Bounty Club - When you have your first midwife appointment you get a Bounty Pack which contains information about the Bounty Club and how to claim your 4 free Bounty Packs which are well worth getting as they contain free samples and money off vouchers for lots of useful items during pregnancy and once the baby has arrived, you can claim these packs by taking the voucher that you'll find in your first Bounty Pack to your local Boots or Superdrug store.
Emma's Diary Baby Club - Inside your first Bounty Pack that you get from your midwife is a magazine called Emma's Diary which contains vouchers to fill out and take to your local Argos to claim your free gift packs, you can claim one before 27 weeks pregnant,one after 27 weeks and a New Family Pack that I think you can claim after your baby is born. Again these packs contain free samples and money off vouchers and are definitely worth getting. I just got around to picking up my 27 week pack the other day so I'll do a post (maybe next week) to show you what I got.
You also get weekly emails from both baby clubs telling you what stage your unborn baby is at, how big they are, etc. These are really interesting especially if it's your first pregnancy so I would definitely recommend signing up to both of these baby clubs.
Next up is the supermarket and shop baby clubs, most supermarkets have a baby club and they're all worth signing up to as you get emails about great offers on baby products and also money off vouchers which can save you a lot when stocking up on nappies, wipes, etc.
Asda Baby & Toddler Club - sign up to receive their free monthly e-newsletter containing exclusive offers, competitions, the latest product reviews and updates from their blogging mums.
Tesco Loves Baby Club - sign up to receive helpful parenting advice, exclusive money saving coupons that could save you up to £150, a special parents parking permit which allows you to park in the parent and child spaces and much more.
Sainsburys Little Ones Baby & Toddler Club - for women joining who are either pregnant or have a baby under three months old, you will receive a coupon at the till for a Huggies Mum & Baby Bundle worth £9.99, they will email you 2-3 weeks after joining to let you know when your coupon is ready to pick up in store. Even if you don't normally shop at Sainsburys I think it's worth doing a couple of shops there and signing up to this club just for the free Huggies Bundle.
Boots Parenting Club - join to receive 10 Boots advantage points for every £1 on baby products, a free baby change bag when you buy any pack of Pampers New Baby or Active Fit nappies, regular emails and exclusive offer coupons sent by post.

Lastly there are the nappie, baby bottle and baby food brand baby clubs which are great for getting money off nappies and lots of advice and free samples for when your little one is ready for weaning.
Pampers Village - sign up for emails on the latest updates from Pampers plus lots of great offers such as coupons, samples and competitions.
Huggies Club - receive email updates and offers. I know that from spring 2013 Huggies nappies are no longer going to be available to buy in the UK and Ireland but you will still be able to buy the wipes, Pull-ups, Dry Nights and Little Swimmers.
Philips Avent Due Date Club - register for regular news updates, expert advice and exclusive discounts and offers. I used Avent bottles with my son and they have endured two and a half years of daily use and hundreds of goes in the dishwasher and they're still going strong, I can't recommend them enough.
