When I was pregnant with triplets eight years ago, I had heard through the multiples grapevine that if I contacted certain companies and told them I had triplets, they would send me coupons and free samples.
Right after my triplets were born, I wrote letters and included pictures and birth certificates of my babies. I sent about 15 letters out to different companies, including Gerber and Pampers, and in the coming weeks, the goodies began to roll in.
I remember getting boxes of formula, samples of diapers, baby-friendly laundry detergent, baby food, and many coupons. I was ecstatic about getting free products to help save money during a financially difficult time with newborn triplets. I showed gratitude by sending thank you notes to those companies who had so generously helped a multiples mom and dad.
Right now, Multiples Illuminated is in the process of building a community on our site. We spent weeks compiling the most up-to-date comprehensive list of 40 companies who offer everything from free baby slings and hooter hiders, to coupons for baby food and diapers. We have made it easy for you to retrieve these freebies with phone numbers and simple directions.
UPDATED: We have now moved this list to a page on the site.
a gift for joining our Multiples Illuminated community, we are giving you access to our Multiples Birth Program list of freebies.
Alison and I are so excited to build this new community of awesome multiples parents as we get ready to launch our first book in Spring, Multiples Illuminated: A Collection of Stories and Advice from Parents of Twins, Triplets and More.
Thank you for becoming a part of our community.
