Pampers

    • Beth

      the totally toddler stuff is like spray-n-wash. it actually works really well at getting out those impressive toddler stains ;) i’ve only seen it a babies-r-us

      However, it is expensive compare to the free shout we get all the time!

      • Brianna

        I’ve seen it at K-mart. My best friend loves it, she’s got 4 kids…

      • I used this for my first – it did work very well. Got it as a shower gift then bought it at KMart or Babies R Us. Shout spray works just as well if you let it sit before you wash it, and soaking in Baby Oxyclean or Oxyclean Free works awesome, even on formula, baby food stains, and spit up stains that have been through the dryer.

        • mandy

          I used this with my first, too. With my second I make my own, mixing vinegar and laundry detergent. Works just as well and it’s a lot cheaper!

    • Jenn

      totally toddler is great! I’ve bought it at burlington coat factory. They have a travel “wipe” size too when you’re on the go.

    • Rebecca

    • JC

      Can I pre-register on these sites if we are planning on extending our family in 2010 or do I have to wait until I’m actually expecting? It would be our first child.

      • JC

        I wouldn’t want the coupons to expire before I could use them.

        • Angela

          I would wait (especially for the Similac, Enfamil, Good Start, & Beech-Nut). A number of those sites will actually ask you your expected due date. I found that when I put my cousin’s date in (she was prego before I was), some of the things I got in the mail have expired by now. (Granted she got to use them, but I’m now four months prego, and she got to use all the free formula I could be getting now). But definitely go ahead and do the Pampers and the Huggies. It’s not to early to start getting free diapers. And also sign up for their programs online to get point. I had a bunch of point for the Huggies Enjoy the Ride Rewards program before I ever got pregnant.

          • JC

            Thanks Angela! I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to get the coupons or diapers and didn’t know when the right time was to start subscribing to baby sites. I appreciate you answering.

          • Sign up at every diaper and formula site you can, they ask for your due date and time their mailings. As a NICU and post partum mother-baby nurse, I can tell you that you never know what formulas will work for your baby and whether your baby will be sensitive to some diapers so stock up on coupons and set aside a little cash (at least $20) every week into a diaper and formula fund instead of stocking up on tons of supplies. My son wore newborn size diapers for 2 weeks, and it took my daughter 5 months to grow into newborn size – babies do their own thing. You’ll see that something is always on sale somewhere and you’ll have a cash stash to buy diapers after the baby comes.Besides, as a first time mother you will probably get diapers at your shower.

            Figure 6 to 8 diapers a day for a newborn, x7 days a week (might be more if breastfeeding) 42 to 56 diapers a week. Start watching the prices now and you can plan on how much money to set aside – I’d do at least $20 a week. And don’t forget Publix and Target baby clubs!

            • Vicki :)

              Target has a baby club?

        • JC,
          There’s nothing to prevent you from signing up early. The companies ask for the baby’s due/birth date but you could always start by entering an estimate and change it later. However, personally I wouldn’t sign up too early. At least in my experience they wait to send you coupons until you will actually need them. It’s the same way with the Publix grocery store club. Unless you act as though you’re having two children (an imaginary child now and your real baby next year), you probably won’t get a lot of extra coupons by pre-registering.

          I signed up with the formula and diaper companies when I was 3-4 months along and it seemed kind of like they forgot about me. I didn’t get much from them until my daughter was a couple months old. My mom signed up [hey, she has a baby, hers is just a little “grand”er :)] after the baby was born and it seemed like they sent her more, especially more of 2 oz ready bottles (I only got those from the hospital, she got 4 in the mail and a coupon for a free box of them).

    • Amy

      I’ve found Totally Toddler at my Wal Mart.

    • Meredith

      Yes, I can find totally toddler at Walmart. It’s a great product! Especially for that yellow baby spit-up that stains the white onesies :)

    • Devin

      Thanks!!!! I was just switching my 2 year old daughter to the Preschool Pals today at Publix… and signing baby # 3 up with the Baby Club (maybe you could add these)! In July, we will have 3 kids are could use all the freebies we can get! Thanks again!

    • Ms. T

      Oh no! I just ordered a subscription to Parenting Mag for a friend of mine! That’ll teach me for not checking in at Southern Savers first!

    • Tabetha

      Thanks, Jenny, perfect timing. I have 10 weeks to go! Saw your picture in Columbia Metropolitan Magazine…great article!

    • makclair

      I signed up for all the formula websites while I was pregnant and actually made a ton of money off of them- I exclusively breastfed my son and never used any of the samples or formula checks. I gave the samples and checks away to friends, and actually sold a lot of them on ebay. So they paid me!!!!

      I actually think I got more samples b/c i put I was planning on breastfeeding- it seemed like they were constantly trying to “convert” me or convince me to supplement with their formula.

    • Vicki :)

      Thanks so much for this list, perfect timing. Anyone have any experience with updating their profile for a new baby? Will they still send you the same coupons and stuff for the second baby?

      I went through and updated/re-signed up for things.

    • There seems to be just a little something odd with your website when using ie 8. Its strange because everything is a little twisted up looking. you might want to have a look. Anyway, I’m due next month, what do you think about the Da Vinci Kalani?
