Advantages: Free stuff!
I joined Boots Parenting Club when I was pregnant. It's free to do & well worth it as you get lots of freebies and money-off coupons.
You need to have a Boots Advantage Card, and you can sign up in store or online at http://www.bootsparentingclub.com.
It's is open to all UK residents who are pregnant and/or have a child or children up to but not including their 2nd birthday.
Around 3-4 weeks after you've signed up you'll receive a welcome pack with vouchers in. When I joined I got a voucher for a free Huggies changing bag when I bought one pack of Huggies newborn nappies. This has now changed and it's a Pampers changing bag when you buy one pack of Pampers nappies. The bag is worth £29.99, and as you'll be needing plenty of nappies, it's a great free gift.
I also got a book of coupons which got me a free No.7 product up to £16 value, buy one get one free on Boots Mediterranean pregnancy range, and other money off coupons.
Offers and free gifts do change regularly.
Around every 3 months I get a new book of coupons, and sometimes get a Boots Parenting Club Magazine relative to how old my baby is. The last issue I got was for 9-18 months. It contains useful advice, interesting articles, and information on new products.
My last issue featured:
Latest product news
Baby first aid
"Rainy day fun" with ideas and tips for play
"Granny knows best" an article on age-old advice from grannies
"Speak easy" about child speech development
Advanced weaning article
"The art of play" about helping your child to play
Advice on buying car seat, buggy and baby carrier
A reader makeover

Coupons normally include extra advantage card points when you buy a certain product, buy-one-get-one-frees, and money off.
Club members also get a coupon, which you only need to activate once and it stays on your card, which gives double points on Boots own label baby products, Pampers nappies and wipes, Heinz baby foods, Avent bottles and sterilisers and Johnson's Baby toiletries.
Since you'll be buying lots of baby stuff, points quickly mount up on your Advantage card, and the savings come in very useful.
I'd recommend any mum-to-be, or new parent to join up. You've nothing to lose and the free gifts and offers make it well worthwhile.
Summary: Worth joining if you're expecting or have recently had a baby
