In my Pregnancy Pilates class, we were discussing the free baby samples available for expecting mums.
A few of the mothers to be signed up for the Lidl, Aldi and Supervalu gifts. So I thought I share those details below and have a look for any other offers out there.
I hope this helps some of you, I always think if you can save money, you should, you can splurge on cute baby outfits instead! If there are any missing, let me know and I'll add them on!
Baby Doc posted online to say that they have a limited number of their free baby boxes to give to BabyDoc Club members, which are worth up to €50. Lucky mums selected will only have to pay an €8.85 delivery fee to have it arrive direct to your door!

Baby Box University
The Baby Box Co., is inspired by a Finnish tradition, they have partnered with local hospitals to create educational courses for new parents. One of their main goals is educating parents on safe sleep practices in an effort to help reduce SIDS.
You can avail of these baby boxes upon completion of The Baby Box University online eCourse and collect them in Limerick Hospital (might have to be attending there), Fehily's Pharmacy Wexford, Thurles (Anew Support Services) and there is a pick up point in Dublin City Centre in the Anew Support Services Office on Tara Street.
If there isn’t an active free box program in your area, you can still access the educational content for free. Baby Box University also offers tutorials on brain development activities, breastfeeding resources, early father engagement tips and much more.
Unfortunately this is no longer offered. Tweet @Aldi_Ireland to see if they will be offering this or something similar in the future.
This is such a cute box. All of the mums in class expressed how delighted they were when they received this. They all say they would be keeping it to store little keepsakes as their baby grows.
The box contains full size products from the Mamia range: a pack of newborn Mamia nappies, a pack of Mamia wipes, a pack of nappy sacks, a bottle of Mamia baby wash, a bottle of Mamia baby shampoo, a bottle of sterilising fluid, a tub of petroleum jelly, a tub of nappy ointment and voucher for €5 off the Aldi Mamia Baby Range and a voucher for a free pack of nappies!
I couldn't find a direct link on the Aldi website for this. But you can sign up here on Her.ie.
This is also no longer offered. Tweet @Lidl_Ireland to see if they will be offering something similar in the future.
The Lidl Baby Box is similar to the Aldi box. It contains a pack of Lidl’s Toujours newborn nappies, a packet of the Toujours wipes, W5 bathroom antibacterial wipes, dentalux kids toothpaste, (for the mammies) hand lotion, a lip balm, body lotion, deodorant and some money off vouchers for the Johnsons range.
