I remember with my last 2 pregnancies I signed up for various diaper and formula sites and they sent out little free samples of their products. It doesn't seem like they do it anymore. I really liked being able to try things out on the baby without buying in bulk so to speak. It was an easy way to figure out what worked best for us.

They just took your information, sold it, and totally stiffed ya. So far I've hated the free crap that has come for me (a magazine that said "Shop 'til You Pop!" among the more ridiculous) and I haven't consented to give my name/address to any more vendors.

When I bought some things at motherhood maternity last week they put my due date in and then gave me a bag of coupons including an Avent bottle and magazine subscription.

Other than that my doc office gave me the sample bag with diaper and wipes.

When I had my DD they didn't send the formula until like 6 weeks or so before my due date. This was with both the similac and enfamil. Not sure if that is standard or not. I signed up again this time, but have not received anything as of yet.

When I registered I got a bag of goodies from Toys R Us including a bottle, soother, breast pads, etc. It was great!

Yeah I think it comes closer to your due date, if I remember right!

I'm pretty sure you'll get the stuff when you are closer. My cousin had a baby a few months ago and she had tons of formula samples so they are definitely still sending them! I can't remember when they did it with my last pregnancy, but makes sense to do it closer to the due date.

It must have changed then, lol. When I was pregnant last time they sent it not long after you sign up. I signed up to a few, so we will see what I actually get.
