How did I find this website?  Yesterday I received a “BabyTalk” magazine in the mail and started reading, I was hooked!  I encourage new and expectant mommies to sign up for the free magazine and check out the great website.  Enjoy!

Love the freebies

Being a new mom or REALLY new mom comes with many perks.  Sure, people are excited around you and allow you the “your pregnant” excuse when you forget something.  But the best of all the perks would be the amazing freebies.  When I first found out I was prego and went in for my first doctor appointment I walked out with a big swag bag full of freebies and goodies.  There was a $25 Shutterfly gift card, diaper, coupons and prenatal pills.  Pretty good for only being prego for 6 weeks.  Online it gets even better, there are offers left and right being displayed on various mom blogs or other website for a free this or that.  On Saturday I received a few of these free packages that I signed up for a few weeks back.

Freebie #1 – Graco sent me Lite up baby nail clippers.  I thought this was a great free item especially since I finally figured out what the light was for!  I was thinking it was so you could really see what you were doing because they are so tiny but my cousin, Kat, filled me in on the secret of clipping the nails while they are sleeping.  GENIUS!

I was actually supposed to get some “I’m prego” t-shirt (Aunt Karen sent the link) but I guess they ran out and I’m pretty happy with the nail clippers instead.

Here is the link for your free clippers – Graco Lite-Ups

Freebie #2 – a parenting website that I’m a member of (there are only 1,000 of them out there) sent me a code for a free “Udder-Cover” which covers you up while breastfeeding.  These bad-boys are retailed at $32.00 a piece and I got mine for free!  It is a great pattern (the picture shows the pattern I chose) and you can’t beat free.

I think you can still get an “UdderCover” and here are all the details if you are interested:

Go to uddercovers.com, click on “Shop Now”, select the product you would like (they also have 3 piece gift sets available with this promotion) and you will automatically be directed to the center of the page where you can enter in the promo code! Type in “Family2010” and it will pull up the ones available. They are selling out fast. You can use the code more than once – you just have to open a new browser/window to do so. Good Luck!

I’m on the hunt for other freebies and feel free to pass them along to me (and Jami) if you see other great stuff.  There are so many mom blogs that get their hands on free wipes, diapers and other great toys and accessories and I’m on the hunt for more (wow, I think I’m kind of addicted).  If you are an expecting mom or mom with little ones, check back for other freebies as I’ll list them here as well.
