Bargain baby thread

Following on from the brilliant Christmas bargain threads, is there anything similar for baby stuff? I was thinking somewhere we could share info on where we have had a special deal or bargain that may help others. Maybe a certain shop with nappies on offer, a sale on high chairs etc. Is there a need?

I would appreciate it. Trying to keep to a tight budget for baby number one.

Asda baby club sent me a leaflet today that their baby event starts on the 17th jan online and I think the 21st in store.

sundaesundae Fri 11-Jan-13 20:22:39 -these look lovely but are pricey, so I have bought very similar ones from Sainsbury for a third of the cost!

amazon family is great, send me lots of vouchers codes, I signed up and paid for the prime and they have sent me lots of money off vouchers too, I got a full closer to nature tommee tippee starter set for £16. Definitely worth signing up to. Bounty emails are good too, lots of offers.

How often do the supermarkets do baby events? I'm due in June thinkits a bit early to buy some things but don't want to miss a bargain.

PinglePongle, thanks so much! They've got them in the [[ argos store]] too at that price, I've just reserved one from my local argos, and I'm so chuffed! smile

Don't spend more than a pound a pack on baby wipes! a shop will always be selling PAmpers, Johnsons or Huggies wipes for £1.

I have the aden an anais giant muslins for swaddling and they have been well used. Found out a month ago that TK MAxx sell them cheap!

Will keep my eyes peeled

GoldPlatedNineDoors Fri 11-Jan-13 21:14:54

ooh xpost!

Does anyone know when the tesco baby event is happening?

Oodhousekeeping Fri 11-Jan-13 21:18:22

Buy wipes in packs of 8/12 much cheaper. Supermarket own ones are fine. Though we just used cotton wool for first year.

rainand Fri 11-Jan-13 21:19:21

Which brand of wipes would you folks recommend?

ladymia Fri 11-Jan-13 21:21:00

Asda has a baby event that starts on the 17th of Jan, i got a pamphlet in the mail today.

Oodhousekeeping Fri 11-Jan-13 21:21:34

Tesco/asda own brand unscented is what we usually buy. Don't like higgies

rainand Fri 11-Jan-13 21:24:20

What does a baby event mean?

rainand Fri 11-Jan-13 21:25:15

Oddhousekeeping, thanks, what's the benefit of unscented? Is it chemical free?

ladymia Fri 11-Jan-13 21:27:50

like a sale smile

GreatSoprendo Fri 11-Jan-13 21:30:38

I got he Asda leaflet today too - looks like some good deals.

There were some good bargains in TK Maxx last weekend who seemed to have a lot of new baby stock in - thread here

GirlWithTheYellowHat Fri 11-Jan-13 21:31:47

Tescos baby event is on now till the 11th of feb if I remember correctly.

I don't like Huggies wipes either and I've stuck with pampers sensitive when I can get them for less than £1 a pack. I stock up when anyone's selling the 12 pack for £10

GoldPlatedNineDoors Fri 11-Jan-13 21:34:16

I dont like Huggies either. I like Johnsons. I also never did cotton wool blush

Blending Fri 11-Jan-13 21:39:30

Home and Bargains have loads in store, and a few bits cheap on line.

For example Pampers baby wipes 99p, The Tommee Tippee Anti-Colic Bottle Feeding Starter Kit £12.99

In store I get sudocreme,calpol etc alot cheaper than the supermarket.
