10 Freebies for new mothers and those of us who have earned our stripes..

One thing companies love to do is give you free samples in hopes you will love their product and become a loyal consumer. One of the best times to take advantage of the Free samples is when you are pregnant, a new mom or when you have little kids..

While you can do a web search to find these offers I thought I would list of some of the better offers and some you might not even know about.


1) Want free formula samples & coupons? Join the Similac Strong moms club. Not only will you receive emails with tips & tools about your baby's development during your pregnancy, but you will receive:

    formula and coupons delivered to your door after your baby is born.

2) For those of you who live in the South you can join the Publix Baby Club. You will receive coupons, newsletters and first time parents receive American Academy of Pediatrics' complete guide to raising a child, "Caring for Your Baby and Young Child"—a $20 value.
