A few weeks ago I wrote about Walmart’s Baby Box Set. They send you three different gift boxes- one for prenatal, one for a baby, and one for a toddler. Each box contains samples and costs only the five dollars for shipping. Last week I received the second box, my infant box. It contained the following samples and coupons:
- Arm & Hammer Sensitive Laundry Detergent (2.25 fl oz)
- Aveeno Baby Lotion (1 fl oz)
- Aveeno Lotion (1 fl oz)
- Huggies Travel Wipes pack (8 count)
- Mam Anti-colic bottle
- 1 Huggies Diaper (size newborn)
- $3 off huggies diapers
- $1 off Arm & Hammer Sensitive Laundry Detergent
- $3 off Pure Bliss formula by Similac
- $2.50 off of Lysol
We are already fans of Aveeno so I liked the samples! However, I don’t think we will end up using the bottle because I breastfeed and the few times we have used a bottle she likes the Phillips brand. So it was cool, but in this box’s case probably not worth the five dollars it cost to ship. I could have just bought an actual bottle of lotion! That said, I do love getting mail though, so not a total waste haha.
I can’t wait to see what the third and final box contains!!
Over the course of our pregnancy we tried out several registries! I looked at Buy Buy Baby and Target (which, we ultimately ended up using). However, just for curiosity sake I decided to make an Amazon registry just so I could review the baby gift they send!
The other two registries you just went in store and they give you a bag of goodies. The Amazon option is a little trickier. First of all, you have to have an Amazon Prime account. (One way around this is you could join for their free thirty day trial, but don’t forget about it!) Second, you have to create your registry. However, it’s not as simple as adding a few things you want. They have a very exhaustive check list that is broken into categories and then even farther down. You have to choose something in each category or at least mark that you don’t need it. I think this would be great for a first time mom who is really worried about forgetting something, but otherwise it made me feel like they were just trying to convince me I needed stuff I probably didn’t. Also, you can’t get your free gift until your checklist is totally complete. Finally, you or someone else has to spend at least $10 off of your registry and that item has to ship. Then you can click the button to order your free welcome box. (I just ordered some teething toys that I know we will eventually need).
So it’s kinda complicated! However, it was a fun little box so I guess it was worth it!! You can click here to see their Baby Box FAQ. So I bet you’re wondering what is in the box! Here is what came in ours, though I read it can vary.
- Pair Avent breast pads w/ breast feeding “guide”
- Seventh Generation Moisture Lotion sample (0.5 fl oz)
- Dove Baby Wash sample (1.8 fl oz)
- Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion sample (1 do oz)
- Cicaplast Baume sample (2ml)
- Bliss triple oxygen instant energizing mask sample (.16 fl oz)
- Pair Munchkin nursing pads
- Huggies (52 count) wipes
- Seventh Generation quilted diaper sample (2 count, no size listed, but it looks like a size two)
- Avent bottle (newborn nipple & 4 oz size)
- Swaddle Designs swaddling blanket
- Pamper “travel sample” (1 newborn diaper & sensitive travel wipes- 6 count)
(Our cat, Legalos, was very excited to have a box to play in).
Overall, a cute box. The swaddling blanket and the diapers make it worth spending the $10. However, I still liked the Target goody bag better! It had a lot of the same things, but it also had a TON of coupons that were actually really helpful.
Just a side note, I tried the Bliss Mask, I don’t know if I felt energized, but it smelt amazing. I’ll have to update this once I’ve used it a few times if I see any cool results.
A few weeks ago I was walking around Publix. In the baby aisle there was a little stack of mail in forms to subscribe to Publix’s Baby Club. I decided to grab one and after forgetting for a few weeks, I finally mailed it in. Probably eight weeks later I ws pleasantly surprised to receive a package in the mail! It was suprisingly heavy. WhenI opened it there were a few things inside.
There was a welcome letter that provided my membership number, as well as explained that members will periodically receive coupons until baby’s second birthday. Also, it informed me that I would receive a newsletter every three months. ( My first news letter was included in the package). There was also a copy of The Complete and Authoritative Guide: Caring for Your Baby and Young Child (Birth to Age 5) by the American Academy of Pediatrics. It has ……. pages of….
There were also 17 different coupons included inside. Here are a few examples:
$3 off any one Gerber Good Start Formula
$1 off any two Gerber items
free hand sanitizer
free stay Free pads
Buy one pampers cruiser diapers, get one pampers wipes free
Sophie recently suggested I order the Walmart Baby Freebie Box! You just pay a $5 shipping cost and they send you this pregnancy box. I had heard about it beforehand, but hadn’t decided if I should try it. On her recommendation I signed up!
They send you three separate packages based on the due date you I’ve them. The first box is the Expecting box. Next is the Newborn/Infant box, and it will finally conclude with your Toddler box. (Each time there is a five dollar fee). We ordered our box Oct 23 and it was delivered October 29th, less than a week total! I was very excited about that.
It arrived all packaged in a cute little box. There was a decent amount of product inside, though nowhere near as many awesome samples and coupons as the Target goodie bag I talked about earlier. Here is what was included:
- Pampers travel case (includes mini wipe pack and one newborn diaper)
- All sensitive skin dryer sheets (5 count)
- Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion (1 oz)
- Cetaphil Baby Wash and Shampoo (1.7 fl oz)
- Bio-Oil: PurCellin Oil (.5 fl oz)
- Vera Ve: Healing Ointment
- Dapple Naturally Clean Bottles Sample (one use) & $1.00 off full size product coupon
- Aquaphore Healing Ointment Baby ( .03 oz)
Overall, it was fun to order and I’m excited to try the Bio-Oil (supposedly helps prevent stretch marks). I don’t know if it actually saves you money because I wouldn’t really have bought any of those products besides the Burts Bees lotion. Since I paid five dollars in shipping… but either way it was fun to get some baby related fun in the mail! And it gave me a few new products to try. Let me know if you decide to try it too!
