    Im just wondering if there is anyone from canada on here mainly seems uk based which is probably why you ladies are all so lovely to talk to hehe. I am just also wondering what stuff i could get for the baby for free before it comes or even after. I see all these links for UK but nothing for canada :(

    If you are formula feeding Heinz Nuture gives out a lot of free stuff! Enfamil does as well.

    Hey girlies

    I have signed up for Nestle, Enfamil, Similac, Huggies and Enfagrow so far. You just go to their websites and you can sign up somewhere.

    I also created a crappy Gmail email account to use as the email address on them all so that i dont get tons of stuff on my normal address.. Not that the stuff isnt useful.. Just annoying to have tons of emails that all end up being junk!

    Apparently you can sign up for Heinz, Pampers, Gerber and Johnsons but so far i havent been able too, i keep checking their websites though.

    Im going to try to BF but not harm in signing up for freebies for formula just incase things dont go to plan as they usually send lots of coupons aswell as samples.

    Oooooh and i signed up for the Babies R Us baby registry and they gave me a coupon for a free gift bag. It was great. Lots of coupons and info aswell as samples of nipple cream, diaper rash cream and even one of those $10 teether things that you can put in the fridge.

    I cant think of anymore right now.. Hope that helps

    Canadian, eh! I haven't looked much for freebies, but there are a lot of baby shows coming up in Vancouver that I'll go to to look for stuff.

    For instance, https://www.belliestobabiescelebration.com

    Anyone else going?

    Similac, Nestle, Enfamil, and Heinz all sent me formula samples and/or coupons.. Nestle even sends a diaper bag!

    I got a free bottle from Playtex..

    I think Pampers and Huggies might have things you can sign up for too.

    Or google "Canadian Mothers Resource" I think it's called..

    Johnson & Johnson has a # you can call to request samples/coupons - I got a coupon for a free product and some $1 off coupons; I used the coupon to get some Desitin for free, it would have been more than $10 without it!
