When we were expecting our child back in 2006 the Baby Freebies forum topic was a great resource. I shared it with everyone else I knew that was expecting or who had little ones. The original topic had a good run, it was started on Jun 23, 2004 by twskis and received its last and 145th post on April 16, 2007. 90 days later it slipped into the sold clutches of the archives.


So anyway, I hope we can revive this wonderful topic because there is no doubt that most FatWalleters with young babies need all the freebies they can get. Instead of posting links here I am going to start posting them in the "Quick Summary" section so that others can help to revive the topic by importing the old working links and adding in new ones too!!!

MY WIFE AND I ARE EXPECTING TWINS AND THIS IS GOING TO BE VERY HELPFUL TO US. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU ALOT

I want to thank you too. My baby is due on November 1st, 2008 and it's my first one. So, I don't have much stuff and this will be helpful.

Thanks!!

The Baby Freebies topic is the original, so if your need is urgent refer to it. I will be working when I can to bring over the still-functioning links. Of course, any help anyone offers in this is very welcome.

Any little bit helps! Thanks for the revive!

This is great! Thanks for the thread.

Hey congrats to all. I have just completed migrating all of the links from the "old" archived thread. I checked each one to be sure it still worked. I also added a new one for "Songs for Teaching". Congrats to all of the expecting parents.

Be sure to email or call customer service when you're signing up for things and let them know you have twins. They'll often send extra goodies and coupons. I had to send copies of my girls birth certificates for a couple of things, Pampers I think, but it's worth the stamp when you're using hundreds of diapers!

Good advice. If you are super lazy you might also just try signing up once using the father's name and again using the mother's name. Some offers my limit by household though, so you might want to use the address a nearby non-expecting friend or relative.
