  • Never heard of that and I've had three in different states. Are you low income? It sounds like charity/public assistance type stuff to me.

  • ~*Nope*~... most I've seen is a diaper bag they give you at the hospital (which I see people trying to sell on Craigs List from Similac or whatever)...but never heard of anything like that where they actually do something that would help a person, I think more would take those classes if they did. Not me personally since I made everything match, but sure plenty would do it

  • Pfft, my hospital didn't even give me a diaper bag LOL! I got my discharge paperwork and that was it!

  • How cool is that? I got a diaperbag and samples, but a cousin did get a car seat from the hospital. This was also 16+ years ago
