The May 2008 issue of Practical Parenting has a free Vital Baby weaning spoon with it for anyone that missed out / couldn't be bothered to request one.   ;)

It's a nice spoon.  Be ages before we try it out though.  ;D

My friend was jealous after I got the free one from the M&B offer, so I'm giving this one to her.  Gah, its too fast.  She's nearly 5 months already!   :\\\'(

You get a free board book with the June issue of Practical Parenting - nothing special, but entertaining at least.   ;)

This one's not a freebie, but get really cheap books for adults & kiddies from [ulr=http://www.thebookpeople.co.uk/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/catalog_10001_10051_100]The Book People[/url]!  Also, if you have a Quidco account you get an additional 5% cash back.   ;)

Was just reading the April 2009 Mother & Baby magazine that they're giving away free MAM soothers - all you have to do is send them 3 - 1st class stamps to:

Mother & Baby promotion
MAM UK
133 High Street
Teddington
TW11 8HH

State whether your baby is a girl or boy and what size soother you would prefer (Tiny, 0+ or 4+ months). The offer closes 30 April 2009.

ETA: you need to quote the reference code M&B 04/09 along with the stamps, your name & address and your child's details (girl / boy & what age dummy you want).   ;)

Organix have just launched a new website / online club with a rewards scheme called Organix Natter.  Rewards start from 50 points.  You can get 10 points free quoting 'CD418' - this was from the October 09 Newsletter.   ;)

Sainsbury's have a new baby club:

http://www.sainsburys.co.uk/littleones

Get a free Mum & Baby care box thingee (it's pretty good as a freebie but not worth the £9.99 they charge in-store!) or 1000 Nectar points if your child is over 3 months.  Having redeemed the Mum & Baby box thing I personally recommend holding off joining until your child is 3 months as the 1000 Nectar points are more useful in my opinion.  The box is nothing special.

Also, I'm convinced that when I joined the Huggies Baby Club, I got a mega-box of 600-something baby wipes for free...a huge box of them showed up at our house one day with no explanation and this is the only reason I can think of!
BUNAC: 9/2004 - 12/2004. Student visa: 1/2005 - 7/2005. Student visa #2: 9/2006 - 1/2008. FLR(IGS): 1/2008 - 10/2008. FLR(M): 10/2008 - 10/2010. ILR 10/2010!!

For new parents joining the Tesco Mum & Baby club they're sending out vouchers for a Pampers kit free when you purchase Newborn size 1 or 2 nappies, as well as little Window Discs for your car so you can park in the Parent & Child spots.  IMO it's nice that someone's finally doing something to try and reduce the amount of nobheads that abuse the Parent & Child parking spaces provided by shops.

Also, Mothercare have just recently started a free to join Parent's club called Baby & Me.  IMO it's more beneficial to first time Mums or Mums who're having to go through and buy everything all over again...  You can sign up in store and get handed a pack with loads of vouchers then and there, which you can use the day you sign up.   ;)  So if you were looking to buy something in particular for yourself / baby you may want to consider signing up as you shop or ask the sales assistant what vouchers are in the pack to get the best deal possible.   ;)

McDonald's (UK) give a free Happy Meal to your kid on their birthday.  You just need to show your child's birth certificate when you eat.  I'm not sure what their age cap is though.
