What baby clubs are out there and what offer, discounts or freebies do you get?
I haven't signed up to any yet, the main reason being I didn't want the email spam as a reminder if things went wrong. After 24 weeks I'm planning on signing up to anything and everything for discounts and freebies!
What do you recommend?

I joined Boots for the free change bag, which was too small for me (and likely would be for you with twins!) and that's about it. Bounty signed me up when i got my post-birth pack with the child benefit firm in it despite my requests not to receive any communications from them, but I've managed to block their emails now- not sure who they've passed my details onto though.

I signed up to cow and gate and go the cute little cow toy...I love him lol.. I would avoid bounty personally after hearing lots of stories about them in hospital.

And top tip...set up a new email address for all the spam you'll likely get from different companies to save you'd inbox. Also don't give anyone phone numbers ad you'll be harassed no end!

Ah that's a good idea about the separate email address!
Thanks for the suggestions and the link too. I know what I'll be doing in a few weeks!
Is it Bounty that posts about the deals? Or is that something else?

Boots is good as you get extra advantage card points on baby stuff which you can then spend on yourself!

MyMothercare gives lots of vouchers too. I signed up to Bounty and Boots.

I joined MyMothercare and Boots.
Vouchers were helpful and I use the free changing bag for smaller trips.

I didn't have a problem with bounty. They send emails with offers and discounts and some are very good. I don't see what the problem is if that's what you're after!

Thanks all :)
Lamby - call me a pessimist but the reason I was concerned about the emails and considering a deifferent email account was in case something went wrong with the pregnancy and receiving emails about what my babies should be doing and why not buy the latest weaning/potty training gadget would be really hard to read if I had lost my twins.

Oh I totally get that, I was referring to someone saying to avoid Bounty full stop.
Zulily are also worth signing up to. No freebies but regularly have bargain offers on things like grobags, fancy nursing bras and designer changing bags.
