15+ Baby Freebies for Twins and Multiples!!!!

UPDATE January 2014:  I would love to hear if anyone has been able to recently get any of these freebies, or if they learned of any new offers out there!  Please comment on this post and let me know, I'd love to keep this information as up-to-date as possible.  Also, has anyone found anything for older twins/multiples?  My girls just turned 2.  Enjoy your freebies!!!



In my previous post I talked about scoring free products, samples, and/or high value coupons from baby related companies just for having twins.  We are fortunate that the girls aren’t picky about what brands or types of formula/food/diapers/wipes we use.  Below is a list of the companies I contacted and what I received.  If you don’t have twins, don’t worry!  I honestly think that you could still call any of these companies and you would get something just for asking!

Gerber (1-800-4-GERBER)

The lady I spoke with on the phone was really nice.  They DO have an official “Multiples Program.”   They also have an online community that you can sign up for on their website that will sometimes have coupons and provides other helpful information.  I also became a fan on Facebook just in case they offer any coupons there.

I received a package on my doorstep less than a week after calling them, so I loved their fast response! It contained two 12.4oz cans of Gerber Good Start Protect formula, and 2 cute “I’m a Gerber Baby” onesies!  Unfortunately, the onesies are too small for the girls (only go up to 12 pounds), so I am probably going to donate these to a couple ladies who are about to have/had a baby recently.  I also received an AWESOME coupon for $10 worth of any Gerber food product in a separate letter.  You know it’s special because it has a little gold sticker on it.  J

Thanks Gerber!!!
Similac (Abbott) (1-800-232-7677)

The lady I spoke with here was also very nice, but it’s probably because at this point the girls were getting a little fussy and she could probably hear them whining in the background. J  Similac DOES NOT have an official multiples program, but she said they could send me a sample for each baby.  They also have the Similac Strong Moms program that you can sign up for online and I think you get coupons.  I probably signed up for that while I was pregnant, but I didn’t remember, because they had my information in the system.

I received two 8 ounce formula samples on my front porch about a week after I called.  There was nothing else included.  I haven’t received any coupons or formula checks from them yet.  I’m hoping they still might send me some.

UPDATE MARCH 19, 2014:  A reader, Carmell, left this comment today regarding Similac:  "The Similac rep required I fill-out a form & mail it in along with a copy of each of my babies birth certificates. However, I received 2 cases of the ready made 1 QT bottles, which are valued at $40 a piece!"

That is a great deal!!!  I hope other's are able to get this also!

Enfamil (Mead Johnson) (1-800-BABY123)

Enfamil DOES have a multiples program, but you have to get your pediatrician involved to qualify.  Your pediatrician has to contact their Enfamil sales rep to confirm that you do have twins/multiples.  They will have to fill out some paperwork that they get from the sales rep, who will then fax it in, and then you get 2 complimentary CASES of formula!  I think it is 1 case per baby, so if you had triplets, you might get 3 cases!  A case consists of 6 of the 12.5oz cans.  Based on how many bottles we can get out of each can, that is about 15 days worth of formula for us, or a $180 value based on regular price at Meijer!!!  That was definitely our biggest freebie!

Thanks Enfamil!
If you pediatrician doesn’t have an Enfamil sales rep, they can always contact Enfamil directly to get hooked up with one.  I know it’s a pain to have to go through your pediatrician, but the people at the office we go to were VERY understanding and helpful.  I was so appreciative of the time they took to do this.  I think this was the first time they had ever heard of this program.

In addition to that, we also received a 12.5oz can in the mail just because I had contacted their customer service.  I have also received one $5 formula check so far.

Thanks Enfamil!
You can also sign up for the online community on their website, and become a fan on Facebook to possibly get other discounts and coupons.  There website also has “certificates” that you can print and bring to your pediatrician’s office for samples.  I haven’t tried that yet, but I might if we get desperate!



Huggies (Kimberly-Clark)  (1-800-648-2484)

Huggies DOES have a multiples program.  After speaking to a customer service person, I learned that to qualify, you need to mail in copies of your children’s birth certificated, and a short letter requesting to be part of the program.  You can mail this in to:

Kimberly Clark
Dept QMB
PO Box 2020
Neenah, WI 54957-2020

About 5 days after I mailed the information in, I received two $3 off any Huggies product coupons, and three $1 off any Huggies product coupons.  I was actually hoping for something a little more special, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers! J  I am also part of their rewards code program, where you type in the codes that are on the inside of their packages to earn points towards free product.  I don’t have very many points yet, but hopefully someday I’ll be able to get something cool!  And as always, I am a fan on Facebook!

Pampers (Proctor & Gamble) (1-800-726-7377)

Pampers also has an official Multiples Program.  I called customer service, but I also found the answer in the FAQs on their website that explains they “provide a one-time gift of money saving coupons.”   The website says to send in your children’s hospital discharge papers, but since I couldn’t find those/didn’t know what they even were, I just mailed in copies of their birth certificates to the address below.  I also included a short note requesting to be a part of the program.

Pampers Multiples Program
Proctor & Gamble Company
PO Box 599
Cincinnati, OH 45201

After 17 days, I received some pretty good coupons!   These included:  1 FREE Pampers diaper pack (up to $13.99), $5 off Pampers diapers, two $2 off Pampers diapers, $1 off Pampers wipes, and 3 P& G coupons for Tide, Olay, and Pantene.  I was extremely happy with what they provided!

I also participate in their rewards code program, called Gifts to Grow.  Points are given for entering the code provided on the packaging of Pampers products.  Sometimes they give out free bonus codes on their Facebook page as well!

Luvs (Proctor & Gamble)

Luvs is just the more affordable diaper provided by Proctor & Gamble.  They also have a Multiples Program, based on the FAQ’s on their website with the same offering as Pampers.  Again, I sent in copies of the girls birth certificates, and my same generic note to the address below.  

Luvs Multiples Program
Proctor & Gamble Company
PO Box 599
Cincinnati, OH 45201
Yes, I do realize it’s the same address as Pampers...  But believe it or not, I did receive something from both Pampers and Luvs.  Luvs sent me: 1 FREE Luvs Diapers (up to $9), $4 off Luvs Diapers, two $2 off Luvs diapers, $1 off Luvs wipes, and the same P & G coupons for Tide, Olay, and Pantene.  This was another great freebie!
I also signed up online to be on their mailing list, and I’ve received some coupons in the mail.  And I’m sure you’ve guessed what I’m going to say… I’m a fan on Facebook!




Beechnut (1-800-233-2468)
Beechnut baby food is made with natural ingredients, no preservatives, and no artificial flavors or colors.  They sell it at Meijer.  They have a parent pack full of coupons that they send out to anybody that calls.  While they don’t technically have a multiples program, they did send me double the coupons!  These coupons included: FREE baby food, FREE cereal, and $$ off purchases.  I’ve already used some of the $1 off Stage 2 jars last week because it was also on sale at Meijer.   Bonus savings!!!  J

Thanks Beech-Nut!!!

Beechnut also has a rewards program where you can send in a certain amount of UPC’s from their products to get more great coupons.  As with all the other companies, they have an e-newsletter that also sends out coupons.  Believe it or not, I don’t think I’m a fan on Facebook yet, but I will have to look it up when I’m done writing this! :-)  [UPDATE:  I am now a fan...]
I never would have thought of this company if it hadn’t been for the lists I found online that showed companies with multiples programs.  I figured it wouldn’t hurt to call and find out if they still had a program.  Guess what?  They do!!!  This was another company that required proof of multiples, so I again sent in the birth certificates and my short note to the following address:

TOMY
Attn: Multiple Birth Program (MBP)
2021 9th St. SE
Dyersville, IA 52040

Only  10 days after putting the information in the mail, I received 2 "My First Rattle" by Learning Curve Baby/TOMY and 2 packs of 5 Take & Toss sippy cups!  This was one of my favorite freebies!

Thanks TOMY!
 Earth’s Best (1-800-434-4246)

I was excited to call Earth’s Best because they have formula, food, diapers, and more.  Unfortunately, they DO NOT have an official multiples program, but they did send me a feeding guide with coupons.  The coupons included:  two 55cents off 1 Earth’s Best product, $5 off Formula, $1 off 7 jars of baby food, $1 off cereal, and $2 off diapers.  I plan to use some of these coupons this week, because Earth’s Best is on sale at Meijer and Target which means bonus savings!!!  J

Seventh Generation (1-800-456-4246)

This was one of my favorite places that I contacted.  The woman I spoke with was so nice and very informative about their products.  They DO NOT have an official multiples program, and at first, she was only going to send me some coupons.  But after telling me all about their products and hearing about my interest in them, she offered to send me samples to try out on the girls.  I seriously talked with this woman for almost 10 minutes about what they have to offer for babies.  It was great!

The package she sent included: two size 2 diapers and two size 3 diapers (I had told her the girls weight and she decided to send 2 different sizes to see which would fit better… Awesome!), a sample pack of 3 wipes, and a bunch of coupons for other Seventh Generation products (like laundry detergent and whatnot).  I know only 4 diapers and 3 wipes doesn’t sound like much, but every little bit really does help!  I’ll take anything!  J

Thanks Seventh Generation!!!
Playtex Baby (1-888-310-4290)

Many of the lists online advertise that Playtex Baby has a multiples program, but after calling, I found out that is not true.  But as with most of the companies that don’t have a program, she offered to send me some coupons.  I wasn’t expecting much, but I was happily surprised!  About 10 days after my phone call, I received 2 coupons for $3 off 1 Playtex Infant product, and 2 coupons for $7.99 off 1 Playtex Infant product!!!  Those are some great coupons!  I plan to use them to get the girls sippy cups soon.

Ella’s Kitchen (1-800-685-7799)

Ella’s Kitchen makes organic baby food that is sold at Target.  They do not have a special multiples program, but they did send me 16 coupons for 55cents of an Ella’s Kitchen product.  I plan to use some of those this week because this brand is on sale at Target.  Yeah bonus savings!!!

And this is a company where it really paid off to be a fan on Facebook.   Ella's Kitchen's page advertised that another Facebook page was holding a contest to win a 3-month supply of Ella’s Kitchen pouches.  Of course I entered, not thinking that I would actually win.  To my surprise, I DID WIN!!!  I am so excited!!!  I was contacted by Ella’s Kitchen and they will be shipping me cases of their pouches directly from their warehouse.  I can’t wait to get them.  That is going to help SO much!!!


This was a company that I contacted using the “contact us” form on their website.  I just couldn’t find a phone number listed anywhere.  I didn’t expect to hear back from them, but they actually responded in less than 24 hours.  Their response seemed typical for not contacting them by phone though.  The email said that they do not have a multiples program and coupons for their products could be found on the following websites: www.baby.com, www.johnsonsbaby.com, and www.babycenter.com.

That was one of my first “no” answers to getting anything sent to me.  I was a little bummed, but I would survive! J  But then I was surprised to get 3 coupons for $5 off specific Johnson & Johnson products in the mail, just for contacting their customer service!  And the list of products that the coupons work on is huge!  I still don’t know what I’m going to use them on… J

Happy Family Foods (212-374-2779)
I spoke with a VERY friendly customer service person from Happy Family that explained that they unfortunately do not have a multiples program.  He added that the best way to get coupons would be to send an email to parents@happyfamilybrands.com, which of course I did.  I attached scanned images of the girls birth certificates, just in case.

I received 2 different email replies from 2 different people.  I also received 2 different letters with coupons in the mail.  I’m not sure if there was a miscommunication on there part, but it worked out in my favor.  More coupons!!!  These included: 1 FREE Toddler Meal bowl, 1 FREE Happytot Plus pouch, 1 FREE Happy Baby puffs, three $1 off 2 Happy Baby Products, and three Buy 6 pouches, get 1 free.   This brand is also on sale at Target this week, so that’s where I’ll be using them!

Little Me (855-3-Little)

I had never heard of Little Me until I found the lists online of Multiple Birth program companies.  They are located in New York and sell newborn and infant clothing.  The girls never stop growing, so they always need new clothes! J  So, I decided to give them a call.  I was pleased to find out they do have a special program.   I just had to mail in copies of the girls birth certificates and my little note to the following address.

Little Me
Attn: Ruthie
112 W 34th St
10th Floor
NYC, NY 10120

[UPDATE MARCH 21, 2014: I saw a comment on this post that was pinned on Pinterest that said the person's letter was returned saying the address was not valid.  So PLEASE CALL FIRST to find out the latest address!]

A few weeks later, 2 super cute little sleepers showed up at my front door!  I was nervous that they may have sent small sizes, but I was happy to see they were size 12-month!  I can’t wait for the girls to wear them!
Thanks Little Me!!!
Ok, so that is everything that I have received so far


I just recently sent out my letter to Kids II/Bright Starts, because I found information on their program in their FAQs on their website.   I’m still waiting to see what I get! J [UPDATE: I never received anything from Bright Starts. :-(]

I also contacted PBM, which is the company that makes all the store brand formulas (including Meijer, Target, Walgreens, etc).   This is one of my funnier calls because I didn’t realize who I was calling.  I was calling the number from the Bright Beginnings Formula website (1-800-410-9629).   I had never heard of Bright Beginnings.  I’m still not exactly sure what it is, but I think it’s equivalent to a store brand sold only on Amazon.com or something… Anyways, PBM is part of Perrigo, which is where Chaz works… So when the woman gave me her email address of where to send the girls birth certificates, I was surprised to that it ended in @Perrigo.com… Of course I had to call Chaz right away and tell him that I just called his company asking for samples and coupons.


Anyways, back to PBM…  THIS IS SOMETHING THEY DO FOR EVERYONE, not just multiples.  You can call once a month and ask for coupons for the store brand formula of your choice.  As a parent of twins, I just get double the coupons.  I was so surprised at who I was talking to that I didn’t really think and just asked for Meijer coupons.  But next time I plan to ask for Target, as they have a better regular price on the Up & Up brand formula.   The customer service woman told me that it will take 4 to 6 weeks for my coupons to arrive, so I’m still waiting…


As you know, store brand formula coupons are rare/don’t exist, so this is awesome.  In addition, did you know that if you go to www.storebrandformula.com, you can print a $2 off coupon for a few select brands, including Meijer and Walgreens. 

Nature’s One Formula had an automated system where you could leave your contact information to get a free sample.  This was one of the first places I contacted, and I have yet to get anything from them… I may follow up soon though. [UPDATE: I never got anything from them. :-( ]

I messaged Baby Blanket Suncare via the “contact us” form on their website on July 18.  I have yet to get a response… [UPDATE:  Never received a response.]


I also messaged Summer Infant products  via the “contact us” form on their website this week.  I tried this method because I had called their customer service number twice, and waited on hold for over 5 minutes with no answer… we’ll see if anyone responds to my message, I haven’t heard anything yet… [UPDATE: Never heard from them.]



The only 2 companies that gave me a flat out “no” without sending anything were Evenflo and AHP (who manufactures store brand diapers).   Other than that, everyone has at least offered to send coupons!  And coupons help, so I’ll take them!  And of course, I am now on every mailing list ever… My email inbox is always full from these companies, but some of the information is helpful and sometimes they have great deals that I can take advantage of, so I am OK with it. J

There were also companies that had Multiple Birth programs that I did not take advantage of.  Sassy Toys has a program where you can order via a special form to get a Buy 1, Get 1 Free offer.

Babies R Us has in in-store program where you can get 10% off when you buy 2 of the same baby gear product (which means, cribs, car seats, gates, etc).  I wish I would have known about this in advance because our cribs and car seats are from there.  While those were gifts for us from family members, we could have saved our family some money!


I still have oodles and oodles of companies that I want to call, but as you can imagine, I’m short on time.  It took me almost 2 weeks just to type this up!  So, if you read this far, then thank you!  I hope you found this information helpful, and that you might call and try to get some discounts or samples as well! J

I’ll post again with an updated list after I contact more companies.  And if you have any suggestions, or if you have received anything cool, let me know by commenting here or on Facebook! 
I LOVE FREE STUFF!

UPDATE 3/25/14:  Hi there!  Because this is one of my most popular posts on this blog, I wanted to add this note here.

Since having my 3rd child, my days have become more than just "life with twins."  So, I decided to move on over to a new blog!  Come check me out at www.MePlus3Today.blogspot.com!
My new blog deals with kids crafts and activities, mommy ups & downs, and what it's like to suddenly find myself as a 30-year-old widow with 3 kids under the age of 2.

So again, please stop by my new blog, and tell your friends too!

Thanks so much!
