We all know how much of a financial impact babies can make on our lives. I always knew that I’d have to buy a lot but I really didn’t realise the extent to what I’d need for the initial start up for little Rabbit.

It’s been great that with Rhys being a year older than him, and of course them both being little boys, as Rhys grows out of something it’ll be time for Rabbit to use/wear/play with it. However moving back to the UK meant that we’ve had to start from scratch for Rhys anyway so really it’s been quite an expensive few months.

Anyway, it’s always great to find a good old bargain or even a freebie when it comes to bambino stuff.  We’ve been so fortunate to have been given a lot of hand me downs from our friends and family which I will blog about soon, and we’ve also been bought and made a lot which is lovely! For those things that we’ve had to buy, I’ve really tried to shop around and find the best value for money. I’ve also come across so many fab offers, gifts, vouchers and discounts from some amazing baby brands and I jut wanted to share them with you!

All of the following brands require you to sign up for free to their parenting and baby clubs and you’ll not only receive a heap of support, advice and information; but you’ll also get some lovely freebies!

      I’m terrible for letting vouchers expire or not claiming freebies but now with bambino on the way I’m getting to be quite good! I lived in Dubai, thats where me and Pete met 🙂 xxx
