The cost of bringing up a kid is expensive. It is especially so in Singapore. Singlife estimates the cost of raising a child to be at least $670,000. So, other than the Baby Bonus that our generous is giving out, there are many free gifts out there for grab! They won’t help a lot but better than nothing, right? Free samples, yeah! Milk powder, diapers, creams, lotions, many more!
I am still collating the items. Stay tune for more updates!

The organisers will prepare goodie bags for you, your wifey and your baby. Goodie bags are not everything you can get from these events. The seminars are actually quite helpful, prepping us to be successful first-time parents. Mental preparation is REALLY IMPORTANT.
We both want a healthy and smart kid. We heard others recommending maternity milk formula. Initially, we thought of buying smaller packs to try out each brand, until we realised that these milk formula companies do give out samples.
Promama by Wyeth (S-26)
Wifey says it tastes the best among the maternity formula.
This is the sample we got from the Thomson Medical event, but you can also get it here.

Goodie bags by insurance agents
We are already considering buying insurance for our little baby. So, it is also time to meet some insurance agents. They don’t come empty-handed. Here are the links:
Other than the milk powder for pregnant mums, we also collected these samples from the events. Cataloguing in progress.
