*This is a sponsored post* Becoming a parent whether it is your first or your fourth is so daunting! Guidelines so often change or are shared by people without the full understanding so it is always essential to ensure you are following the correct guidelines. One of the most important guidelines to follow is certainly the safer sleeping guidelines especially with newborns and young babies.
Bounty are a company that help parents through their parenting journey. They provide plenty of advice around every aspect of parenting from coping with the early days to weaning and money matters. Bounty offer parents 3 different Bounty Packs through different stages of pregnancy and once you become a new parent which include advice, samples and money saving offers. Working with a number of charities it means that Bounty Packs always have the most up to date information as well as being able to support charities who return the support ot those family that need.
Each month alone over 45,000 new parents receive Bounty Packs and often they know very little about some of the charities that provide such relevant information. To receive your free Bounty Packs then it is best to download the Bounty App where the coupons can be scanned in Tesco, Asda and Boots stores.

They Key Points to Safer Sleeping are
