This post has taken my forever to write! I have no idea why. It’s one of those that’s been in the recesses of my brain for months, and I’m just now getting around to it. When I found out that I was having multiples, I had so many well-meaning people say, “You can get a lot of free stuff!” “I bet you can get free diapers for a year!”. Umm…what? Yeah, totally not true. If you are a new multiple mom, I hate to bust your bubble, but most companies have discontinued their multiples program. With the rise of in vitro and other things that have increased the occurrence of multiple pregnancies, loading up on freebies is becoming less likely. I did find a few places that still try to give Moms of Multiples a break. Check them out below and feel free to comment if you know of an additional place or if you’ve found one of the places that I’ve listed to be no longer accommodating.
When submitting a request to companies, be sure to include a copy of each baby’s birth certificate. A few of the companies below have ways to submit online, but some still need the snail mail.
Triple Paste sent me several goodies for each baby, including a tub of their Triple Paste diaper cream. This was such a generous box of goodies that we are still using! Go to the Triple Paste for Triplets page for more information.
Gerber sent me a packet of coupons. These were mainly for food, but I was able to save these and shop on sale to save a little money on baby food. Every little bit helps when you have multiples!

Pampers sent several diaper coupons, as well as coupons for Luvs and Dreft. Be sure to send in the babies’ birth certificates!

Huggies sent coupons that I could use for a variety of their products. Birth certificates are needed here, too!

BeechNut sent several coupons for baby food. I contacted them through the contact form on their website.
The Little Me Boutique generously sent a pair of pajamas for each boy. They were so cute, and I’ve kept them as a keepsake even though the boys have long outgrew them. See their Multiple Birth Program page for details.
We also received a case of formula for each baby. This had to be done through our pediatrician. Our pediatrician contacted our local formula rep and they had the formula shipped right to our door!
Ringling Brothers’ also provides a circus ticket for all babies, multiples or not, if the parent signs up on their website.
