Hi there :)

It's been a while, but today I wanted to share my lovely baby bag with you, that also happened to be absolutely FREE! If you are pregnant, and you haven't already registered for your bag at Dischem - definitely keep reading and I'll tell you exactly what you need to do to get your hands on one.

There are a few things that need to be done in order to qualify for the bag, but I spend most of my free time at Dischem anyway ;) so it wasn't really any extra trouble at all.

  • First of all, you need to register for the Baby program in store - it's better if you do this early, but you can register at any time in your pregnancy.
  • Then you need to spend R650 (remember to take your Dischem card with you, otherwise your spendings won't count). I spend way more at Dischem than I should, so this was very easy for me to do. But if you don't shop at Dischem that often, it's a good idea to register early - that way you have several months to get to the R650 mark.
  • Lastly you need to see the nurse at Dischem for a consultation. This was the only slightly inconvenient part for me - it only cost R35, and I saw her for about 10 minutes, so it still wasn't terrible - I'm just socially awkward and try to avoid talking to strangers as much as possible hahaha. She did however tell me to watch what I eat because you're only supposed to gain 10kg throughout your entire pregnancy and I had gained that at around 30 weeks ;) but as far as I know it's perfectly healthy to gain up to 15kg.
Then in your third trimester they will call you to collect your bag at a Dischem store near you. I actually contacted them early in my third trimester, because I'm impatient like that - and they called me back a few days later to pick up my bag!

I've seen a lot of complaints on their Facebook page about people not being happy with the items inside the bag - but honestly, that is just a bonus for me, the fact that I get a free bag (That is really beautiful) is a major score on it's own!

In my bag I got:

  • A sample pack of 5 Pampers Premium Care nappies
  • 2 Softi Nursing Pads
  • Baby Things travel size Shampoo, Baby oil and Baby wash
  • Baby Things travel wipes
  • A disposable Pigeon bib
  • Nature's nourishment hand sanitizer
  • Surgical spirits
  • Softi Cotton balls
  • Nuk Breast milk storage container (This is a regular bottle, you just have to buy the actual teat yourself)
  • Bepanthen "My 1st" cards (my first haircut, tooth, word etc.)
And the bag also includes a matching changing pad.

Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed and over the moon with my bag and the goodies I got inside!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, thank you so much for stopping by.
