One baby is expensive, but two or more at one time now that’s expensive! Always ask if a retailer offers a discount for multiple births. Don’t be shy about it either, the worst they are going to say is no. Plus, daycare centers and preschool often offer multi-child discounts. Also, many activity centers (like the gymnastics gym where my children do gymnastics) will offer a multi-child discount. Here is a list of discounts and freebies available to multiple birth parents that I have confirmed. I’m in the process of double checking a long list of company’s that are reported to offer discounts for multiple births.
There are lots of freebies and formula certificates available from Enfamil via their website. They do have a multiple birth program, however you will need to contact your physician to enroll. If you contact Enfamil directly they will refer you back to your physician.
They do not offer a multiple birth program, but have a program called Similac Strong Moms. ”The complimentary program we have for new parents is the Similac Strong Moms program. The program offers free newsletters, timely tips, and other special offers that may include money-saving checks to be used toward the purchase of Abbott Nutrition infant formula. From information on how babies develop, to tips on breastfeeding and formula feeding, you’ll receive the expert guidance you need when you need it. You may join StrongMoms by calling 1-800-232-7677. Our representatives are available Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Central time.”
Offers a program for multiples, which provides a special package to families of multiples. Contact Gerber when the your babies are born and provide verification such as newspaper articles or a letter from the hospital or physician and they will arrange to add your name to this program.
Offers feeding guides, double coupons and Loyalty Program offers. Just email them you complete name & mailing address, as well as the number of babies in the multiple birth.
