    Sorry if i have spoilt the suprise for all you who have yet to pick yours up but what rubbish :cry:

    I was so looking forward to getting mine as from what i can remember when i had my last daughter 4 years ago they were good :D !!

    So i popped into boots with my voucher got my pack home ripped it open to find
    1) A trial box of all-bran
    2) Blackcurrant fruit flakes with a yogurt coating
    3) Tiny tube of stretch mark cream (I mean tiny!!)
    4) Loads of leaflets (on all-bran and home insurance etc).

    What a dissapointment,if they are really stuck for ideas why not give us a booklet of money off vouchers so we can treat ourselves xx

    I agree Nikki,

    I was so excited too I ate the blackcurrent things and had the all bran when I was consitpated, and that was like eating a bit of cardboard the rest i threw away.

    I got my mum to be pack at my first hospital visit.

    from what I can remember I got

    a travel pack of baby wipes
    a huggies nappy
    a trial pack of Fairey wash powder with a cotton baby hat that smelt of it.
    a trial pack of Ariel wash powder with a cotton toilety bag which also smelt of it.
    some money off vouchers for pampers
    small pregnany book ( no emmas diary this time though :( )
    and a baby cloths catalogue ( can't remember which one)
    ohh and a 50g box of Lindt Lindor chocolate truffles mmmm.

    I love all the packs we get for being pregnant/new mums but I would have been so dissapointed with the boots one.

    I went in to get mine yesterday and boots and mothercare both said they havn't got any and are having trouble getting hold of them. I was a bit annoyed but now you have told me what is in them I think I can wait as I thought it would be full of money off coupons and samples of washing powder etc.

    yes you get a new baby pack at the hospital,cant remember what was in them though, but i think they were ok.and then you het a coupon for a weaning pack with bounty, which contains baby food and small trial packets of baby rice and juice and rusks,i think, seems so long ago!! :roll:
